IN SUMMARY

  • Kenya mulls roll-out of new blockchain technology to boost service delivery.
  • The technology stores information on transactions in a publicly shared ledger — in a way that cannot be altered.
  • It has primarily been used to record financial transactions that underpin the virtual currency, Bitcoin.


Global tech giant IBM is in talks with the government to introduce blockchain technology in management of records in the health, education and real estate sectors to boost transparency in public information.
