Blockchain-based Digital Identification For Online Public Services In Turkey
The process of registering for online public services in Turkey is going to incorporate blockchain technology at some point in the not-too-distant future, according to the plans of the Turkish government.
E-Devlet is a digital government site that is utilized in Turkey to access a broad variety of public services. In order to validate the identity of a resident of Turkey who logs into E-Devlet, the site will use a digital identity that is based on blockchain technology. This will make it possible for E-Devlet to check the resident’s capability of accessing the vast array of public services that are on offer in Turkey. Because of this, E-Devlet will be able to provide its users with a higher level of protection for the confidentiality of their personal information.
During the event that was held for Digital Turkey 2023, Turkey’s Vice President Fuat Oktay broke the news that citizens would soon be able to use digital identities that are based on blockchain technology in order to use e-wallet apps. This news was announced during the event that was held for Digital Turkey 2023. The Vice President of Turkey made this information available to the general public.
Oktay referred to the application that is founded on blockchain technology as a revolution for the e-government projects, arguing that blockchain will make online services more accessible and safe.
If this new function is made available, users will be able to store all of the digital information they produce on their mobile devices rather than having to move it from one device to another.
Turkey has made a number of public comments over the course of the past several years on the deployment of blockchain-based initiatives. Despite these comments, very little of these efforts have yet been placed into the reality of the situation.
2019 was the first year in which the United States of America began making preparations for a national blockchain infrastructure. This development marked the beginning of the year.
On the other hand, its blockchain goals have not yet generated any fruit, with the exception of a few proof-of-concept companies and a digital currency test done by the central bank (which was ultimately finished after a number of delays).
