Following the vision of the Dubai Blockchain Strategy 2020, announced in October 2016 by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, Smart Dubai has delivered on its promise of building a thriving Blockchain ecosystem in the city and establishing Dubai as the world capital of Blockchain development. The ongoing implementation of 24 use cases across eight industry sectors, launch of the Dubai Blockchain Platform, and the Dubai Blockchain Policy are all testament to this fact.
“We, at the Smart Dubai Department, have worked with our government and private sector partners on developing a series of Blockchain use cases across multiple sectors, in line with our mission to embrace advanced technologies and make Dubai the happiest and smartest city in the world,” said Her Excellency Dr. Aisha Bint Butti Bin Bishr, Director General, Smart Dubai Department. “We look forward to multiplying our smart city transformation efforts this year, powering forward with more dedication as we mark the Year of Preparation for the UAE’s 50th Anniversary ‘2020: Towards the Next 50’, announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai.”
In a detailed presentation, the Smart Dubai Department team explained that the Dubai Blockchain Strategy relies on three main pillars: Government Efficiency, Industry Creation, and International Leadership.
Under Government Efficiency, the Strategy led to the launch of numerous use cases, a joint Blockchain Platform, and the Dubai Blockchain Policy. Government and the private sector entities are working on 24 Blockchain use cases. The use cases span eight sectors, namely, finance, education, real estate, tourism, commerce, health, transportation, and security.
