BLING - BLockchain IN Governmentundefined

14 partners working together on innovative customer services solutions

Could the technology of Blockchain provide a solution to governmental problems? Can public service delivery of the municipality be improved by means of this promising technology? Could governmental organisations increase their planning by implementing Blockchain?

The BLING project will, by combining the expertise of knowledge institutions and the playingfield of municipalities and governmental organisations together with businesses and citizens, investigate what role Blockchain can be for governments.

BLING will leverage blockchain's enabling technologies to begin delivering the next generation of innovative services for citizens, communities and SMEs. BLING's partners will move beyond proof of concepts to deliver real services in real live governmental settings: this will allow BLING to accelerate and de-risk the development and deployment of blockchain-enabled services across the North Sea Region.

BLING explores, enables and delivers blockchainbased services for governments. We share our experiences and lessons. You can find our publications here. You can read our series with blockchainexperts here. We add a new interview every month.
