The National Research Council of Canada (NRC), a major research organization in Canada, is using a technology built on the Ethereum Blockchain in order to publish all the data related to public programs and their funding in real time. If any grant is somehow amended, all the information will be recorded on the Blockchain for users to search for it with the help of an explorer.

Such a manifestation of a decentralized ledger technology will make sure that government public programs are conducted in an open and transparent way  since any data recorded on a public ledger is unalterable.
