Idaho City explores use cases for Blockchain tech

Boise, the capital city of Idaho, has partnered with ULedger, a blockchain startup firm, in order to experiment with numerous use cases for blockchain inside the city's technological infrastructure.

Boise, comprised of just 225,000 residents, claims to be one of the first city governments to move towards the implementation of blockchain technology in a public and direct way.

According to Darrin Harris, the city’s chief information officer (CIO),"Blockchain is a transformative technology and through our relationship with ULedger, we are excited to become one of the first city governments to bring blockchain, and its many benefits to practice. We are looking to ULedger, and its stateless blockchain protocol to mitigate data and security risks, improve data integrity and continuity, streamline process and deliver a first in class experience to the citizens of Boise".
