TALK: Exploring E-Governance Using the Blockchain Platform in Southeast Asia

What will you learn?
Bitcoin is not only used in Fintech; let's forget about bitcoin and cryptocurrency for a little bit and learn about other powerful use cases where blockchain technology is used.

This meetup session will discuss use cases in e-governance using blockchain. The Althash E-Governance Suite house government services ranging from citizen dApps, online voting systems, government to employee dApps, and identity management systems. E-governance, also known as "electronic governance," aims to make government service efficient, accessible and convenient for all. It is a secure and transparent form of record keeping that will supplement, and in some cases, replace paper transactions and documentation within government.

Blockchain enhances government services by providing accurate information, secures official transactions without human interference, accurate official record keeping and manages authorization of documents issued to citizens.


CEO and founder of Althash Blockchain, Amando is finishing his doctoral dissertation on mobile technology at Northern Illinois University. He was recently awarded and elevated to the rank of Knight, to the first degree. The Order of the Knights of Rizal is the sole order of knighthood in the Philippines. Its ranks and insignia are recognized in the Honors Code of the Philippines as official awards of the Republic.
