The Catalan government announced IdentiCAT, a decentralized identity system. The bidding for system development - which is expected to be completed by 2020 - will start shortly at €550,000. The system will reportedly be available both to Catalonia residents and to Catalonians residing abroad that still want to use it.
"Now it's time to lead the digital revolution. We speak of an entrepreneurial society that is attentive to social novelties and innovations. The aim of this government is to put people at the center of their policies, also the digital ones." He also stressed that Catalonia cares about the concept of digital citizenship and blockchain technology in a strong way and claimed that it intends to become the first country to implement a decentralized digital identity.
Sierra Leone plans to fully adopt a blockchain-enabled national identity system by the end of 2019. As Cointelegraph reported at the end of August, a new partnership between a development bank, a nongovernmental organization and a tech corporation is eyeing the creation of a blockchain-based identity system to improve financial inclusion in Buenos Aires.
