At a digital government event, Fuat Oktay, the Vice President of Turkey, declared the nation’s plan to utilize blockchain technology for confirming the identities of Turkish nationals accessing online public services via the e-Devlet government portal.

This blockchain-based system, according to Oktay, could revolutionize the e-government of Turkey, making online services more secure and available.

Turkey has already declared multiple blockchain-based initiatives, yet few of them have come to completion.

The country has been scheming a national blockchain infrastructure since 2019, but aside from a few proof-of-concept projects and a central bank digital currency test, it has yet to experience the complete advantages of its blockchain dreams.
