[CUBE NEWS] 'Blockchain' Ecosystem, Expanding to Public Services | '블록체인' 생태계, 공공 서비스까지 확장

Recently, the Korea Internet & Security Agency (KISA) announced that it has completed selecting a contractor for this year's blockchain public leading pilot projects with the Ministry of Science and Technology and Information and Communication. As a result, blockchain technology will be introduced to help local governments respond to disasters quickly, protect the rights of part-time workers, and ensure the transparency of the government's public services and government.

In addition, the blockchain public initiative has increased its funding from six projects last year to 12 this year and has expanded its budget from 3.5 million USD to 7.5 million USD. In March, a total of 32 companies were selected to carry out 12 projects for this year's pilot project. Thus, the National Archives and Records Administration plans to use blockchain technology for real-time sharing among the records management institutions of standard electronic documents.

The Defense Acquisition Program Administration will also provide transparency of the project by introducing blockchain technology to share proposals and evaluation information, while the Military Manpower Administration will also use blockchain to share administrative information and the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety will establish a food safety management certification (HACCP) service platform by utilizing blockchain. In addition, the Seoul Metropolitan Government, Busan Metropolitan City, Jeollabuk-do, and Jeju Special Self-governing Province are also preparing to apply blockchain according to the needs of their respective regions.

"When we heard about the expansion of blockchain technology, we are in the process of using blockchain technology," a Cube Intelligence official said. "We are continuously thinking about how to utilize blockchain technology that is being developed by Cube. We look forward to seeing blockchain technology grow in a way that can improve the quality of life for our users."

최근 한국인터넷진흥원(KISA)이 과학기술정보통신부와 올해 블록체인 공공 선도 시범사업의 수행 사업자 선정을 마쳤다고 발표했습니다. 이에 따라 지방정부의 신속한 재난 대응, 시간제 근로자 권익 보호, 맞춤형 국민 서비스와 정부 행정기관의 투명성 확보 등을 위해 블록체인 기술 도입이 이뤄질 전망인데요.

또한 이번 블록체인 공공 선도 시범사업의 지원 규모를 지난해 6개 과제에서 올해 12개로 늘리고, 예산도 40억원에서 85억원으로 확대했습니다. 지난 3월 올해 시범사업의 12개 과제를 수행할 사업자인 총 32개 기업이 최종 선정됐죠. 이로서 국가기록원은 표준전자문서의 기록물 관리 기관 간 실시간 공유에 블록체인 기술을 활용할 계획입니다.

방위사업청도 제안서나 평가 정보 공유에 블록체인 기술을 도입해 사업의 투명성을 제공할 방침이며, 병무청도 행정 정보 공유 시 블록체인을 활용, 식품의약품안전처는 블록체인을 활용해 식품안전관리인증(HACCP) 서비스 플랫폼을 구축할 예정입니다. 그 외에도 서울특별시, 부산광역시, 전라북도, 제주도특별차지도 역시 각 지역의 필요에 따라 블록체인을 적용할 준비를 진행하고 있습니다.

블록체인 기술의 공공 서비스 확장 소식을 접한 큐브 인텔리전스 관계자는 블록체인 기술이 본적격인 활용 단계에 들어섰다큐브에서 개발 중인 블록체인 기술의 활용 방안에 대해 계속해서 고민 중이다. 앞으로 블록체인 기술이 이용자의 삶의 질을 높일 수 있는 방향으로 성장할 수 있기를 기대한다고 전했습니다
