Turkey plans to use blockchain technology to verify the identities of Turkish citizens accessing online public services through the government portal e-Devlet.

The country’s vice president, Fuat Oktay, announced the plan at a digital government event, stating that the blockchain-based system would revolutionize the country’s e-government efforts, making online services more secure and accessible.

Turkey has previously announced several blockchain-based projects, but few have come to fruition.

The country has been planning a national blockchain infrastructure since 2019, but aside from some proof-of-concept projects and a central bank digital currency test, it has not yet seen the full benefits of its blockchain ambitions.
