It has so far been no more than a pilot technology, but its implementation in business processes and public administration could potentially radically change how these processes work and increase their efficiency. The current absence of established practices and lack of comprehensive understanding, which areas could really benefit from the use of blockchain are slowing down this process.

What measures can the state use to streamline the use of the technology? Where and how are successful projects being implemented in business and public administration, and how can they be scaled?
