Dubai has big blockchain plans for 2018

Dubai is already testing new initiatives in a few government departments but plans to develop 20 blockchain-based solutions in this year.

As Dubai has already got its nickname as the “City of the Future”, it’s going to prove this status. Smart Dubai is an initiative that aims to transform the city into the most technologically advanced and smartest in the world. Introducing and developing blockchain-based solutions in a number of sectors is a part of the plan.

Aisha Bint Buti bin Bisher, the director general of Smart Dubai, assumes that “blockchain will improve people’s experience.”

“The applications are in various fields, some of them are in RTA, road and transport, some of them are in energy, health and education. These 20-use cases are under pilot, and we are looking forward to see the results so we can scale it.”

– commented Aisha.

Blockchain technology is already being used for land registry transactions. Aisha states that they will be able to implement perhaps 20 solutions during 2018, though originally it was pre-planned to be finished till the end of 2020.

Bisher also said:

“While others were still debating the prospects of this new technology, we went to work and today we are making Dubai the blockchain capital of the world, and we have already begun.Dubai broke ground when the world reluctantly approached this technology. Already, blockchain is rewriting how we deal with city services. In just a handful of years, blockchain has transformed key aspects of our city.”
