The project will output a blueprint document and supporting resources for a national blockchain blueprint that will lay the grounds for democratic transformation and next generation digital services.
As this tweet from Martin Docherty SNP MP highlights, the Blockchain Blueprint is intended as an initiative that engages with all levels and aspects of government, as well as experts across the world.

A National Blueprint
This could be developed as a national blueprint, a central resource for planning Digital Government systems. A similar reference example includes the Microsoft Bletchley project, defining a framework that includes roles for partners, industry solutions and the required technology components to enable their collaboration.
As we move from the hype to early adopter phase for blockchain, a key activity will be to showcase the early prototypes and idea thinking taking shape across Scotland’s public sector, for potential use case scenarios.
