SUMMARY

This report which examines blockchain technologies and its use in the public sector aims at equipping the public sector with the necessary knowledge to understand what the blockchain architecture is, the impact it could have on government services, as well as the opportunities and challenges the public sector could have to face as a consequence.

The research also takes a look at what blockchain technology is not, as well as fields where its application may not be useful. An understanding of what blockchain technology is and is not is key to help policymakers and civil servants determine if blockchain technologies could be helpful to advance their missions.

The paper explains that blockchain technologies present the possibility to handle information and trust in radical new ways that must be understood so that the public sector can grasp the opportunities that they offer.

Among other applications, blockchain technology can be a helpful tool for governments to reduce fraud, errors, and the cost of paper-intensive processes, as it by design provides perfect transparency over government data and transactions.
