Blockchain seems to be everywhere.
In an age when we can communicate, work, study, move money and even watch movies or read a book from the comfort of our own beds, iPhone in hand, it’s remarkable that our relationships with government are so un-techy. We have to fill out and sign paper forms in order to set up a business or pay taxes, we have Social Security numbers printed on a physical card that our entire lives are tied to and we even have to drive to a high school or town hall to vote in elections in person, often by marking a slip of paper with a pen. It’s all very … 20th century. Not so in the small European nation of Estonia, where you can pay taxes, buy and sell property, sign contracts, conduct business and even vote in elections online.
