Blockchain for Government
The effort to advance BSV Blockchain globally did not end at the enterprise level but it also expanded to include government and public policy with the release of Blockchain for Government.
With its massive scalability and public nature, BSV is the ideal blockchain for government applications to benefit citizens – through more efficient delivery of e-government, eliminating government agency data silos, increasing transparency, enabling greater financial inclusion, building technology-driven communities of tomorrow, achieving ESG goals, and advancing public good.
Some of the Blockchain for Government initiatives announced include:
- Tuvalu National Digital Ledger: A massive digital migration project which would see Tuvalu integrate its governance and financial systems with the BSV public ledger and become the world’s first paperless society.
- VXPASS application to track Covid-19 vaccinations in the nation of Lesotho: Offering a blockchain-based digital vaccine administration and verification platform with all data being stored on the BSV blockchain with the support of the World Health Organisation (WHO), the State Department and the World Bank.
- BSV historic visit to Sudan: A week-long official visit to Khartoum in the Republic of Sudan at the invitation and under the patronage of the Ministry of Telecommunication and Digital Transformation.
- Blockchain-based academic certification and accreditation: Bitcoin Association signed an R&D agreement with the University of Sharjah to develop a blockchain-based academic certification and accreditation platform.
Bitcoin Association also held several global conferences and meetings with government officials to discuss the adoption of blockchain technology for governmental services.
Bitcoin Association plans to attend and hold even more government and regulatory meetings over the coming year as it continues to foster growth and act as a guardian of the BSV ecosystem.
