Blockchain & Privacy: Two cases from the government field
Kristof Verslype, Research consultant
Blockchain technology is based on transparency, which unavoidably creates a tension with data confidentiality and privacy requirements. Based on two blockchain experiments from the government field, technical and legal challenges as well as the proposed solutions are discussed. In the first project, a blockchain is used in a specific context to store proof-of-delivery and proof-of-receipt of documents. In the second project, medical prescriptions are issued and processed using a smart contract on a blockchain.
