Blockchain technology is heralded as the next chapter of the information and network society and is perceived to have an enormous impact on our economy, trade and the public sector. Blockchain provides the framework for governments to reduce fraud, corruption, error and the cost of paper-intensive processes. It has the potential to redefine the relationship between the government and the citizen in terms of data sharing, transparency and trust.
