San Francisco-based Blockstack works with companies hoping to orient themselves around the blockchain, or integrate it into their present systems. The U.K. government is believed to be the next big entity that revolves around bitcoin technology. In Honduras, the power of the blockchain has been used to create a secure land registry with entries that are considered solid and unchallengeable.

“Today we launched the first government survey to have its results recorded in the Bitcoin blockchain. This marks a small but significant milestone in the mainstream adoption of blockchain technology… The State of Connecticut asked our team to survey Connecticut’s top 200 technology companies to learn how the State can help them retain talent and grow their workforce. Tierion was used to collect survey responses and generate a blockchain receipt that can be used to verify the timestamp and content of each response.”
“Generating a blockchain receipt for each survey response makes it possible for anyone to verify the data without relying on a trusted third party. Auditing each result can be done by verifying the receipt.”
