Several countries are now paving the way for blockchain’s inclusion in their infrastructure. These states including the Brazilian state are eyeing the perks brought upon by the emerging concept of blockchain. Most importantly, developing nations are more active in spearheading a campaign in favor of blockchain and crypto. They eye it as a possibility to propel the growth of the financial infrastructure. Thus, countries like Brazil, have been more open to the idea of making a more blockchain-compliant economic structure.
Brazil has been among the few countries that have a strong crypto community for a long time now. The locals developed a liking for crypto, leading to the growth of the concept in the country. Moreover, now the Brazilian Development Bank has also moved to support the growth of the blockchain sector in the country.
Launch of the Brazilian Blockchain Network
In a recent development, the Brazilian Blockchain Network has been introduced in a bid to ensure more public transparency in other sectors. The launch of the project was carried out alongside the help of the Court of Accounts of the Union. In addition to this, the organization is urging other similar organizations to lend their support for the whole project. The Brazilian Blockchain network was reportedly launched on 30th May 2022.
As a joint venture between the Brazilian Development Bank and the Court of Accounts of the Union, the project is set to have an influential impact when it comes to optimizing and streamlining the whole network. That also includes the addition of other major organizations to lend a helping hand in order to pave the way for the project to achieve its targets.
In addition to this, the President of the Brazilian Development Bank, Gustavo Montezano said that the Bank plans to partner with other government organizations that share the same ideology. He believes that if the number of people and institutions working towards this goal would increase, it would fetch more positive results as a whole. He is also heading the launch and implementation of the blockchain network in Brazil.
Furthermore, Montezano revealed that the blockchain network is set to step out of the lab structure. It will soon have a production prototype to test its use cases. It would give third parties a practical chance of exploring the ways of creating applications on the network. As of now, the organization continues to experiment with the network. It might come up with functioning applications by next year.
Ensuring more transparency in Brazilian public organizations
Brazilian state institutions do not enjoy the trust of the public due to their ineffectiveness. Therefore, the newly launched blockchain network is expected to find solutions for these organizations. However, it will have to enhance and modify the infrastructure of these organizations to improve their overall performance. The Director of the Information Technology Inspection Department of the Court of Accounts of the Union, Wesley Vaz, said that the transformation towards blockchain could force public offices to follow a set code of conduct. It would ensure more transparency in their culture and work ethics.
The traditional working ecosystem of Brazilian organizations is highly outdated. Therefore, the incorporation of blockchain will ensure a much-needed change in these institutions. However, many hopes are hitched with the new project, and key stakeholders firmly believe that it has the capacity to achieve these goals. Ensuring security, efficiency, and transparency is the main objective of the Brazilian blockchain network. While sharing the details of the project, it was said that it will use the Proof-of-Authority consensus mechanism. It will not have any mining process linked with it. Moreover, it will utilize Hyperledger Besu 2.0 as its base.
The Brazilian Blockchain Network might mark the beginning of a new era in the tech sector of Brazil. Its success could lead to many new blockchain-based startups. Moreover, the crypto community of the country is also hoping for fruitful outcomes through this launch. Nonetheless, the success of this venture will be determined by its performance in the future.
