Credits provides its Blockchain-as-a-Service to UK public sector

Blockchain platform provider Credits has announced that it now supplying its secure Blockchain-as-a-Service to the UK public sector through the Government Digital Services' Digital Marketplace.

The Crown Commercial Service (CCS), an executive agency and trading fund of the Cabinet Office of the UK Government, awarded a place on the G-Cloud 8 framework agreement to Credits for the supply of distributed ledger technology (DLT). CCS acts on behalf of the Crown to drive savings for the taxpayer and improve the quality of commercial and procurement activity.

The Digital Marketplace is the official platform for UK public sector organisations wanting to procure cloud and digital specialist services. With its inclusion in the G-Cloud 8 platform, the Credits Blockchain platform-as-a-service could now be used by organisations across the UK public sector including central and local government, the devolved administrations, health, education, emergency services, defence, and not-for-profits such as housing associations and charities.

"Credits is pleased to have been awarded a place on the G-Cloud 8 platform. We are excited by the huge potential of Distributed Ledger Technology for many different government and public sector applications, and are looking forward to working with UK public sector organisations to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their services for UK taxpayers", Nick Williamson, CEO & Co-Founder of Credits, said.

The Credits Blockchain-as-a-Service will enable UK public sector bodies and their solution and managed service providers to build and deploy secure, enterprise-grade and interoperable DLT services. Government departments and agencies such as the National Health Service, DVLA, HM Passport Office, the Land Registry, Department for Work and Pensions, and HM Revenue and Customs should benefit greatly from DLT, enabling them to improve digital services and increase taxpayer value, the release said.

Credits' G-Cloud Blockchain-as-a-Service runs on secure cloud infrastructure powered by partner UKCloud (formerly Skyscape). The G-Cloud agreement follows Credits' 2015 success in supplying its blockchain framework to the Isle of Man Government, and the launch in April 2016 of Credits' public blockchain PaaS.
