The government of Argentina has appointed a national blockchain committee to set the guidelines for a state-level blockchain adoption strategy. In a document, Argentina highlights the importance of this technology for the future and presents several use cases that would benefit from the introduction of blockchain for the country’s digital transformation.
Argentina Forms National Blockchain Committee
More and more countries are taking a look at how the implementation of blockchain technology can improve some of their public functions. Argentina has recently issued its national blockchain guidelines.
The document, presented on Dec. 7, also creates a national blockchain committee, which will have the responsibility of “acting as an interlocutor in the local blockchain ecosystem promoting interoperability of blockchain technologies and good governance.”
The committee will be constituted by the Secretariat of Public Innovation and other state organizations that will develop public policies based on blockchain and technological solutions. However, these other organizations that are called to be part of the committee are not detailed as part of the issued framework.
Areas of Interest
The second area has to do with citizen identification. The Argentine state considers that blockchain could be useful to help in identification processes by preventing forgeries of IDs and other documents issued by authorities. Organizing a system around blockchain would give third parties simple ways to confirm the validity of these documents.
