Beijing: 140 government service applications are using blockchain

26. Juli 2020

The Beijing government will today launch its first blockchain implementation plan on government services in China, according to local news on July 15.

According to the plan, 140 applications of government services are already in blockchain. These applications fall into three categories: „data sharing and exchange,“ „collaborative business processing“ and „electronic certificate and certificate storage. The official in charge of the project said:

„Blockchain is a breakthrough in data exchange that is difficult to achieve through traditional sharing […] ‚electronic certificate storage‘ means that the electronic certificate is stored in the chain and […] improves credibility and verification efficiency“.

China recognizes Blockchain in its pandemic preparedness strategy

Blockchain becomes real
The blockchain system of real estate registration, for example, involves 11 government sectors, including the municipal planning commission, the housing and rural-urban development commission, the tax office, the public security office. The official said:

Chinese shareholders do not want to share their personal data with government blockchains
„The relevant departments will handle the real estate registration business and store the relevant information in the block chain to ensure the credibility of the electronic license […] to perform the traceability of the sharing process“.

As Cointelegraph reported earlier, China is studying the use of blockchain technology to promote data sharing among medical institutions in the midst of future pandemics. But Chinese local governments also face challenges in implementing blockchain applications because stakeholders do not want to share their data.
