Apart from the financial sector, the blockchain industry in Thailand is growing rapidly and developments have expanded into the country’s court system.
According to the report from the Office of the Court of Justice of the Kingdom of Thailand, it has revealed that it is developing a blockchain network as a part of “court digitalization” campaign set for the end of 2021.
“In the past 20 years, the Court of Justice has been actively developing human resources and seeking technological advancement. Hence the aim for the Digital Court transformation is set for 2020 as we are currently developing an on-premise blockchain network which is now 91% completed. This achievement will make the system’s world’s first judicial blockchain while the next step is to train our personnel and will be ready for practice by the end of next year,” said the report.
However, there are no further details regarding the project at the moment and it remains unclear whether this is a joint effort between the public and private sectors.
The introduction of blockchain technology to the judicial system will allow seamless and more efficient information sharing. Security enhancements are another factor why the court has chosen to integrate blockchain and prevent the tampering of information or evidence.
