Malta Government to Improve Public Transportation with Blockchain Technology
Malta has entered a partnership with Omnitude — a multi-enterprise blockchain middleware platform — to use the blockchain to enhance its public transportation service by developing a transport and logistics platform using the company’s middleware technology.
Ian Borg, Malta’s Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects, commented in a press release, “We believe in Omnitude’s blockchain technology and its broad use-cases for the government.
We can see its potential in a range of government departments and it will form a cornerstone technology platform as part of our commitment to drive forward innovation.
Blockchain technology is a key part of our national technology strategy that will see us transform different sectors.” Omnitude first emerged as a new concept in blockchain ecosystems from an existing ecommerce agency.
Malta’s government had also approved a blockchain strategy earlier this year, making it one of the first countries in the world to incorporate a national strategy based on its technology.
