Infrastructure for the Digital Economy

A foundation technology for building a Scottish digital ecosystem will be the Blockchain.

Used in conjunction with other key technologies notably Digital Identity this combination will provide the trust enabling infrastructure for a 21st century digital economy.

All documents and transactions can be certified digitally and recorded in a non-tamperable way to assure their authenticity, in the same way they may be signed and approved in the offline world by official bodies and persons.

An inspiring example of a national Blockchain roadmap that can be emulated and built upon is Australia’s.

Digital Currency

Across the world the most seismic of changes is brewing, the advent of an entirely digital currency, enabled by the Blockchain, offering the potential to replace bank accounts.

In the USA former CFTC chair Chris Giancarlo has set up a not-for-profit called the Digital Dollar Foundation, to pioneer the creation of a US central bank digital currency (CBDC).

Already the Bank of Canada has laid the groundwork, with countries like Ghana and the Marshall Islands seeking to blaze the trail.

Blockchain Democracy: Government Of The People, By The People, For The People

Writing on Forbes Alex Tapscott describes “Blockchain Democracy”, how the technology will not only better secure digital voting but provide the foundations for new, 21st century models for truly participative democracy.

“Using the Internet, citizens became more involved, learned from one another. With the blockchain, the system can cost-effectively engage all citizens and provide equal access to public services (e.g., health care, transportation, education) and social security.

Technology is a powerful tool but it alone cannot achieve the change we need. In the spirit of the saying “The future is not something to be predicted, it’s something to be achieved,” let’s reinvent government for a new era of legitimacy and trust. It’s time to stop the tinkering.”
