"blockchain will increase efficiency and transparency"
Ooh, so they've finally found a solution to make blockchain scale (it doesn't) ?
I am thrilled that there are some institutions that are trying to adopt blockchain and finally make this thing useful.
I only find it curious that there are hardly any private companies that are doing this, ie risking actual capital on the idea.
Apart, of course, from all the funny money schemes which almost invariably end up on the bonfire of mismanagement and incompetent IT decisions and staff - not to mention intentional scamming from the get-go.
No, lets let government use our tax money to pursue this bullshit bingo boondoggle. At least, when it won't work, it can just be quietly swept under the rug without much fuss because hey, it's only your tax money at work, right ?
