Indonesia Considers Blockchain for Data Challenges

Founder of Indonesian tech firm Online Pajak, Charles Guinot, mentioned this week in an interview that his company has launched a blockchain-driven app that customers can use to share encrypted tax data with financial institutions such as banks and treasury offices.

Guinot said that not only can blockchain technology reduce paperwork and increase transparency, it can also provide taxpayers proof of their payments, which is currently not available in the country.

Co-founder of Horizon State Nimo Naamani added that they are also about to launch a blockchain-based phone app that can facilitate direct polling on various local policy issues.
