Blockchain technology has flourished like never before. From managing data to securely storing it in a decentralized form, blockchain's evolution has changed everything, from the government to banking and healthcare, it's everywhere.
The introduction of Bitcoin relatively brought blockchain from obscurity to the mainstream stage. Several piloting and testing of blockchain applications had happened, and ever since the success of the blockchain technology, all other sectors began to adopt it.
From finance to banking, medicine to fashion, many sectors looked to integrate blockchain into their infrastructures. Its decentralized nature, transparency, enhanced security, traceability features fostered industries to adopt the technology more efficiently.
Blockchain for Government
Blockchain's transparency feature can help governments verify and secure data instantly. A few blockchain solutions will also help independent verification of governmental claims. For instance, the governments of Sweden, Estonia, and Georgia are already exploring blockchain-based land registries. This will help multiple parties hold the registry copies securely, enabling the sharing of records across the network participants.
Blockchain technology will also help the government protect sensitive information. Governments will also be able to maintain the records that reduce the costs, streamlines the processes, decreases audit burden, and protects the data integrity.
