Credits becomes first G-Cloud blockchain PaaS
The solution will help the public sector improve identity management and data security
Blockchain platform provider Credits has become the first Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) provider to tout its wares on the government's G-Cloud, helping the public sector roll out identity management and data security using blockchains.
The provider was chosen by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) to provide its distributed ledger technology (DLT) on the Government Digital Services' Digital Marketplace, allowing the UK's public sector to build and deploy secure, enterprise-grade and interoperable DLT services.
Credits hopes the solution will be used across central and local government departments including devolved administrations, health, education, emergency services, defence, and not-for-profits such as housing associations and charities.
