Recently Uport could ensure digital registration in partnership with Zug. This new opportunity is historically important, since it demonstrates the possibility of verifying digital citizenship by the government with the help of the Ethereum blockchain.

To register Zug’s citizen would download the Uport app and register his Uport ID on the Ethereum blockchain. It is creating a global identifier. This address is a smart contract. Citizen uses newly registered Uport ID to sign in to the Zug ID web portal with scanning a QR code. The Zug web portal is authenticated, the citizen enters a pre-existing Zug ID number along with personal information. This requires in-person verification by a city administrator. Then citizen gets 14 days to visit the Zug office with an official government ID document. Any authorized official can then cross check the citizen's information and his documents. If the application is approved, the citizen receives a Uport citizenship ID.

The development of digital citizenship can increase trust between government and citizens. It also provides opportunities for better digital interactions among them. Then in the Spring of 2018 Zug are going to develop an e-voting initiative.
