Before the OECD Blockchain Policy Forum starts in Paris on the 12th let’s discuss together as individual or business “users” on the European Blockchain Partnership and European Commission “cross-border digital public services” joint initiative, this European Blockchain Service Infrastructure (EBSI) which launch was officially announced a few days ago.
The European Blockchain Partnership is an intergovernmental initiative from 29 European countries;
“The European Blockchain Partnership (EBP) was created on 10 April 2018 through a joint declaration agreed between 21 Member States and Norway. The signatories have also agreed to cooperate in the establishment of a European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI) that will support the delivery of cross-border digital public services, with the highest standards of security and privacy. Since then seven other countries have joined the Partnership, most recently Liechtenstein. All members of the Partnership have pledged to help overcome obstacles for spreading the use of innovative digital solutions across the Union and beyond.”
As stated in the EBSI announcement:
“Blockchain technology has enormous potential to enhance the way that citizens, governments and businesses interact, by enhancing trust between entities and improving the efficiency of operations.
The European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI) is a joint initiative from the European Commission and the European Blockchain Partnership (EBP) to deliver EU-wide cross-border public services using blockchain technology. The EBSI will be materialized as a network of distributed nodes across Europe (the blockchain), leveraging an increasing number of applications focused on specific use cases. In 2020, EBSI will become a CEF Building Block, providing reusable software, specifications and services to support adoption by EU institutions and European public administrations.”
Let’s start some conversation together as future EBSI “users” on the 2019 EBSI use cases and the new set of use cases for 2020
Four use cases have been selected for 2019. For each use case, a Member State-led and composed user group have been established. These user groups aim to deliver a prototype application on the EBSI blockchain by early 2020. A new set of use cases will be selected by the EBP Policy Group for 2020.
Leveraging the power of blockchain to create trusted digital audit trails, automate compliance checks in time-sensitive processes and prove data integrity.
Giving control back to citizens when managing their education credentials; significantly reducing verification costs and improving authenticity trust.”
European Self-Sovereign Identity
Implementing a generic Self-Sovereign Identity capability, allowing users to create and control their own identity across borders without relying on centralized authorities.
Trusted Data Sharing
Leveraging blockchain technology to securely share data (e.g. IOSS VAT identification numbers and import one-stop-shop) amongst customs and tax authorities in the EU.
