The Reform think tank is planning to use the blockchain to reform a digital system of identity insurance. Earlier the UK government tried to implement Gov.uk Verify but there was no opportunity to provide assurance of the data. It was for this reason that HMRS and other departments used their own technologies and systems.

As Reform noticed, using of the blockchain will help to supply only up-to-date information. People will be able to look through their personal data and decide independently whether or not to permit access to their profiles. Users will be able to change information about themselves, including biometrics, in special app for smartphones.

According to Reform’s opinion, the UK government should follow the example of Estonia and give back to people the right to monitor their personal data. The innovation assures citizens that their information is secured and they can deny access to suspicious characters.
