Poland Considers DLT For Public Services




At a recent seminar held in Warsaw, Polish officials discussed plans to launch a blockchain pilot for eID management.

On May 10, 2017, representatives from both the public and private sectors of the Polish economy, as well as experts from around the world, gathered at a seminar held in Warsaw, Poland, to discuss details on a blockchain pilot project for electronic identity (eID) management. The seminar, which was arranged by the country’s Ministry of Digital Affairs and Ministry of Development, is an effort by the Polish government to promote new emerging technologies and facilitate the exchange of effective dialogue with the European Commission.

The seminar falls in line with the Polish government’s “From paper to digital Polish” initiative, an effort led by the Ministry of Digital Affairs to promote digital public services – specifically for the development of cashless solutions and eID services.

Established in December 2015, the Ministry of Digital Affairs is helping to bring new innovations, such as cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IoT), to Poland:

“The mission of the ministry is to create a digital boost for the development of Poland. The main tasks of the new ministry are to develop broadband infrastructure, support the creation of web content and e-services and promote digital competences among citizens. Digitization is also key to modern administration.”

Last year, the Ministry indicated that eID services could help the Polish economy by providing “mass mechanisms of authentication and identification” for key public services.
