Moscow. January 22. Ex-Minister of Finance Alexey Kudrin and the head of Sberbank of Russia German Gref see prospects for the use of blockchain technology in the public administration in the future.
The technology of the blockchain is a decentralized database that contains information about built according to certain rules the block chain transactions. This technology is used, in particular, accounts with cryptocurrency bitcoin.
“For me, the blockchain, which I heard means the following: that each person can log in to the database to issue all the necessary documents for the purchase of land (land), to build this package in an hour, send it to the relevant authorities, within the hour, if everything is confirmed, to receive the answer. This is definitely a revolution,” said Kudrin, speaking at a business Breakfast of the savings Bank on Friday.
The new technology will be able to afford not to collect numerous inquiries, control over the activity of state bodies can also occur online, and agencies will not require serious effort, believes Kudrin. The same applies to the collection of taxes.
“I still dream that when the politician who promises something and stands with the offers, each on your computer will immediately be displayed, whether his statement of the resources that the state has, the scenarios in which to go. Now I may be a little ironic, maybe a dream, but in General, we have to be more precise, to comply with the rules. Thus, we will be much faster to achieve results and we will agree among themselves”, – said Kudrin.
For the implementation of new technologies in the public administration “the essential language in which we speak and whether we understand the terms and whether there is feedback”, the joint establishment of certain rules, said Kudrin.
He believes that outdoor market, open data – an important component to meet the demands of the modern industrial revolution. However, now many state-owned companies and private enterprises are not in a hurry to meet the new requirements. “The government, unfortunately, even slower, to meet these challenges, slower implementing these technologies,” said the ex-Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation.
In turn, Gref noted that the developers of blockchain, speak about irrelevance of organs (e.g., organs, recording transactions) . “Just the transaction will be made, when the payment, ownership will then be transferred from one to another, and it will be registered to thousands of computers. And to cancel no one will be able, it is more reliable than any state register of rights,” he said.
“The same thing – paying taxes. Every taxpayer will be able to track your specific payment. Generally, they are talking about the fact that the tax system will become your personal that you will be able to pay taxes and needs to track where went your payment. It’s a totally different concept. Of course, you need to comprehend, you need to change your thinking completely,” added the head of Sberbank.
