CRA unveils blockchain plan to boost Qatar’s digital transformation – Doha News

Blueprint outlines the regulatory framework for Blockchain-based projects in Qatar.

The Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) has recently released the Qatar National Blockchain Blueprint, which has been jointly developed by the CRA, Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) and Qatar University (QU).

The main objective of this initiative is to establish an effective regulatory framework for blockchain technology, which forms a strong basis for the government’s approach in this field and promotes an environment that encourages creativity and innovation.

It outlines the framework for blockchain technology at the national level, identifying its fundamental elements, regulatory basis, adoption basis and potential for innovation and creativity.

It further highlights the crucial blockchain requirements and provides a comprehensive set of recommendations to achieve the desired goals.

“We are pleased to collaborate with HBKU and QU to issue the National Blockchain Blueprint for Qatar. Through the plan, we have set the most prominent opportunities that blockchain can bring to the private and public sectors and outlined the necessities and incentives that must be provided by each sector for technology adoption, which contributes to the development of new start-up and pilot projects,” said Ali Al-Suwaidi, Director of Technical Affairs at CRA.

“I would like to invite all stakeholders to review the plan so that we work together to develop the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector, support local and foreign investment and a knowledge-based economy to support achieving the goals of Qatar National Vision 2030. “

What does that mean?

The release of the National Blockchain Blueprint for Qatar has several potential ramifications.

It establishes a clear regulatory framework for the use of blockchain technology in Qatar, and provides guidance and direction to businesses, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders who wish to explore the technology’s potential.

The plan can also help foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in Qatar, as it provides a roadmap for how blockchain technology can be leveraged to create new products, services and business models. This can lead to the establishment of new startups, job opportunities and economic growth.

By leveraging the secure and transparent nature of blockchain technology, governments can improve their data management and streamline operations, reduce costs and improve citizen services.

“We believe this plan will serve as a guide for stakeholders and pave the way for future innovation in this field. The College of Engineering is committed to continuing its partnership with CRA and HBKU to drive the growth of the nation’s digital economy and foster a culture of innovation and creativity,” said Qatar University College of Engineering Dean Dr. Khalid Kamal Naji.

The National Blockchain Blueprint for Qatar is available via the CRA website.
