Nick Williamson, CEO and founder of Credits, stated:

“We’re seeing a growing number of organisations across industries beginning to explore how blockchain technology can help to streamline or modernise operations, or allow them to offer new, compelling services, and are thrilled to bring Blockchain-as-a-Service technology to the UK public sector in collaboration with Skyscape.”

Skyscape also has assurance and security credentials suitable for government agencies, covering data at OFFICIAL (including OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE), and is a certified Public Services Network (PSN) service provider.

Williamson added:

“Skyscape’s industry-leading platform, unique connectivity and assurance credentials, combined with Credits’ blockchain technology create a competitive advantage for us as the first cloud provider with a blockchain offering for the UK public sector.”

Simon Hansford, CEO at Skyscape Cloud Services, commented on the partnership:

“We’re pleased to be working with Credits to bring new and innovative blockchain solutions to support the digital transformation of public services. The partnership will further benefit our extensive community of partners serving the UK public sector who will now also be able to quickly and easily build robust blockchains.”

Credits has already been working in direct partnership with the Isle of Man Government on several blockchain-based initiatives.
