MP calls for UK government to hire Chief Blockchain Officer

Eddie Hughes, MP for Walsall, has published a new paper highlighting the opportunities that the UK could benefit from by embracing blockchain technology, with a number of recommendations.
This includes appointing a public-facing Chief Blockchain Officer who would be responsible for co-ordinating efforts to get the technology into public sector organisations across the country.
He also proposes (link to the paper) a UK ‘blockchain departmental target’: a long-term aim for government departments to make a one percent efficiency saving by embracing blockchain and other associated services.
