Blockchain firm Credits has been awarded a contract on the UK’s G-Cloud to operate a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). The firm is the first to provide distributed ledger technology through the Government Digital Services’ Digital Marketplace and will enable public sector organisations across the UK access to its platform.
Credits was chosen by the Crown Commercial Services, which acts on behalf of the Crown to create savings for the taxpayers of the UK and increase procurement activity. “We are pleased to have been awarded a place on the G-Cloud 8 platform,” says Nick Williamson, CEO and Founder of Credits. “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.”
Credits’ G-Cloud blockchain platform will run on a secure cloud infrastructure powered by partner firm UKCloud. The contract with the government follows the company’s success in supply its blockchain technology to the Isle of Man government and its public PaaS launch in April 2016.
