How will blockchain change the government’s operation?

nRunaway Comment: The co-founder of Chronicled, a blockchain company, described the use of blockchain in government on a Q u0026 A site, pointing out that governments are one of the best areas to take advantage of blockchain. Because such technologies can eliminate intermediaries and increase transparency, government jobs can be made more efficient and credible. What needs to be clear is that although this technology does not help the government solve all the problems, it can at least bring many benefits to it from a technical perspective.n

What are the aspects of government that blockchain smart contracts can improve? Samantha Radocchia, co-founder of blockchain startup Chronicled, answers this question on Quora:n
Some governments are more transparent than others. No one who is concerned with international news will be surprised. But blockchain technology can change the way many governments operate by increasing efficiency and data transparency.n
If the government chooses to use the blockchain for contract management, identity management and much more, then it can create a publicly available record.n
So soon we will see the government beginning to show an unprecedented level of transparency.n
Of course, it may not be the case.n

To what extent is it transparent?n
To achieve a thorough data transparency will be an exciting new era of governance. But even if this can be achieved, it still takes a long time. The reason is that most governments may be somewhat concerned about this transparency. This may be for security reasons or it may be because they simply want to stay ahead of national competition. After all, “knowledge is power,” is not it?n
By the way, not only does the government have such concerns. I spent three years using blockchain and smart contracts to ensure the supply chain was real and reliable. I have found that some entities already know the existence of counterfeit goods, unethical supply chains and other issues, but they do not necessarily have to disclose the information. From their point of view, it makes sense to do so. If you have a serious problem, you might tell some helpful friends, not the entire community.n

On the road to transparencyn
Whatever your opinion of social media, you have to admit that it enables people to spread what is once considered personal information on the web. Most of us now have the luxury of handing out privacy to businesses and governments, and we almost never think about it when we click the “Agree” or “I Accept Terms” button.n
But the question is, is this bi-directional? Will governments and businesses be more transparent in return for the benefits offered by the blockchain?n
Because this technology can really bring a lot of benefits.n

Smart contracts and efficient governmentn
Governments around the world are well-suited to harness blockchain technology. One of the biggest public discontent with the government today is its inefficiency and waste of resources. And the blockchain can just eliminate inefficiencies and waste from the system.n
Many companies require a large number of government contracts, and the blockchain provides the government with a way to quickly and easily determine who fulfilled the contract on time and within budget.n
The blockchain also helps eliminate middlemen who add to the complexity of citizen services. If you want to sell your car, then you must transfer ownership to the Vehicle Administration. Buying land, starting a business and even paying taxes requires government intermediaries to verify the transaction. Blockchain does not require third-party verification. All parties have access to the transaction records. In this way, people can use the app on the phone to sell directly, without having to go to the vehicle authority to complete the transaction.n
n
Comply with laws and regulationsn
The government has also enacted laws and regulations, especially environmental laws and regulations. But government officials do not always ensure that these rules are observed. This is one aspect of how the blockchain can play a role.n
Just this June, seven Chinese citizens were jailed for falsifying data and altering the air quality monitoring system. The air quality in many parts of China is very poor. But they are cracking down on polluting air – counterfeiting surveillance data is now as serious as real air pollution.n
But what happens if the information is automatically stored in the blockchain immediately after it is collected and made available to everyone? Those who are in jail now do not even have the chance to forge data. The immutable transparent clues of data are precisely the tools needed to ensure compliance with regulations.n
But those who faked the data did what they did to stuff the veil into the sensor and prevent it from recording the correct amount of contaminants. So blockchain technology can not stop all those determined to commit wrongdoing, but it can stop the bulk of it.n
Is it enough for the government to adopt a more efficient and transparent governance style? Maybe. However, the situation in each country is different, so whoever will take the first step and when to take this step are worth looking forward to.n
