While the German-speaking Bitcoin and Blockchain-Community grows steadily more difficult the authorities in terms of adaptation, however. The digital priority list, the requirements in the area of digitization are numerous. But the mills grind slowly.

29. August, the government of Liechtenstein, a 179-page report on the consultation process, in order to create a legislative basis for the regulation. The target: investors, entrepreneurs and companies to provide more legal certainty when they deal with the Blockchain. An important step in the direction of adaptation and a great leap for Liechtenstein in terms of technical Innovation. And Germany? Rearranges his priorities.

So a study was created in cooperation of the F. A. Z.-Institute and Sopra Steria Consulting shows that seven percent of the respondents are Federal, state and local governments provide a Budget for Blockchain projects. Here was a increase in efficiency, which could oils the slow mills of the administrative apparatus something:

“The technology is suitable for Federal, state and local governments to perform complex operations, with many at the same time involved faster. State benefits, for example unemployment benefits and student loans, could be paid without any transaction must be physically run through many hands, until it is legitimized.“

The lack of skilled labour calls for automation

In a way it was, especially in view of the shortage of skilled workers, is of interest to automate more activities. Two percent of the respondents administrations have, therefore, invested “already” in KI solutions. For the future, respondents see themselves, nevertheless, optimistic. Because, as the study further reveals, is to increase this share by 2020, to 16 percent: Concrete fields of use for the analysis, categorization and distribution of citizens requests and applications.

Also via mobile devices is expected to be, according to the report, significant progress, in order to optimize processes:

“Mobile devices change the work of the administrative staff. An example of this is the in October 2017, which was launched a pilot operation of the ‘Mobile workplace’ by the police of Rheinland-Pfalz. Here is the connection of mobile devices offers many advantages, for example, by data on traffic accidents or criminal charges can be directly on-site, or data from the registration system and verifies input.“

Germany and the missed Revolution

Furthermore, they wanted to make it to the administrations finally, the E-file. For the “paperless file management” want to use 38 percent of respondents by 2020 “a significant share of the Budget”. In fact, is already at 57 per cent of administrative decision-makers in the electronic file in the implementation phase.

Until it can, however, come to an adaptation of the Blockchain technology, Germany needed a solid legal basis. And up coming, it will take. So the issue of “Blockchain” in the coalition agreement. But BaFin and the government have a hard time at the moment. The “world” hit the nail already in February on the head: “Germany has already missed the Internet revolution.”
