Spanish Autonomous Region of Catalonia Trial Blockchain

Catalan Flag in the Wind

A recent press release by the Government of Catalonia shows a growing interest by the Spanish state in utilizing decentralized ledger technology in day to day business.

As detailed in the announcement, the autonomous Spanish state will start trialling blockchain technology as a means to improve public administrative activity.

According to the report, dated July 24, the Generalitat de Catalunya plan to utilize the benefits provided by blockchain to offer the public better access to online digital services.

The Department of Digital Policies has been selected to formulate a system that will integrate all aspects of public administration and make the system available to the public by year end. The department has been tasked with identifying the most economically viable avenues to pursue and promote knowledge, training and job creation in the blockchain sector.

Recently Spanish bank Santandar became the first bank to successfully integrate blockchain technology into investor voting systems. Earlier this year, Barcelona Tech City launched a blockchain development initiative designed to attract local talent into the emerging industry.

The news follows a number of projects focusing on harnessing the power of blockchain tech in financial and governmental practices. Earlier this week the Bank of England announced it’s interest in using blockchain for payments and settlements.
