TEHRAN – The ministry of information and communication technologies (ICT) introduces blockchain technology into a series of videos for the public.
The seven-part video series, which is available on the ICT media channel on the Aparat website, aims to provide information to the public about the blockchain as a fundamental section of technology.
"Informing the public is the principle of the use of new aspects of technology," announced ICT Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi on his Twitter account on Saturday.
In early December, a group of Tehran's technology blockchain experts from Sharif announced that they are developing a startup that will introduce the first taxi app based on the Iranian blockchain.
The founder of startup Amir Abbas Emami said he launched Initial Coin Offering (ICO).
The latest report of the European Union Blockchain Observatory and Forum (EUBF) states that, in order for the blockchain to realize its potential within government institutions, they must focus on the use of technology to build two elements: digital identity systems and digital versions of their national currencies.
"Digital identity is the key component and a key area on which governments can concentrate," the report reads. "Another important constituent … is having digital versions of national currency on the blockchain, for example through the digital currencies of the central bank based on blockchain (CBDC).
