This Briefing Paper presents distilled learnings from TOKEN’s Policy Observatory work and recommended courses of action for building trustworthy, transparent and inclusive distributed ledger technology (DLT) -based digital infrastructures in the public sector, with a special focus on European cities.
The focus of this paper is on public servants and their role in the technological innovation process. We used a vignette experiment to investigate public officials’ attitudes on a fictional blockchain application for the provision of local digital identity.
