Governments taking to Blockchain

Indian state and municipal authorities have been showing great interest in embracing DLT in order to improve the security and efficiency of their work. A few days ago, the government of Catalonia, Spain, announced their intention to ensure the use of DLT in all areas of municipal administration and implement it by late 2018.

Earlier in July, one of the Saudi Arabia municipalities joined efforts with IBM to create a plan for improving the municipal services provision and transaction making by means of DLT. This will be done as part of the Saudi Vision 2030 program selected by the local government.
