Is blockchain piratical for government use?
Would it be realistic to develop a blockchain that government can use for transferring documents and information? Or would the nature of the blockchain prevent this?
There's nothing about blockchain as a technology that would prevent a government from becoming involved with it. In fact, there have been a number of government experiments in the space. The Government of Canada has been experimenting with publishing funding data on the Ethereum blockchain (https://nrc-cnrc.explorecatena.com/en), and the governments of British Columbia and Ontario have worked together on the Verifiable Organizations Network on Hyperledger (https://vonx.io/). Estonia has developed what is likely one of the most advanced digital governments in the world (https://e-estonia.com), and some of their solutions utilize blockchain. There are likely many more experiments ongoing and projects under development.
