A service called “payment reconciliation and payment” will serve the government departments of Dubai, in particular, the police Department, the Department of roads and transport, Department of health and others.

Tasks new blockchain system is to create transparency in the financial Affairs of departments and reduce the time of the transaction.

The first payment service tested the management of power and water resources and the management of knowledge and human development. The total number of test transactions amounted to 5 million

The development of Smart Dubai Office was marked by a high award at the conference of the Smart Cities Expo in Barcelona, whereby the government of the United Arab Emirates has adopted a decision on the start of joint works.

We will remind, last year the Dubai authorities transferred the registration of ownership of the blockchain.
