Enrico Paringit, spokesman of the Philippine Department of Science and Technology (DOST), has said the department is launching a training program for in-house researchers to explore all possible options for using distributed ledger technology.

Paringit has emphasized that the government’s interest in blockchain has nothing to do with plans to launch any digital products.

He has emphasized that the main goal of the training program is to see and analyze the potential role of blockchain in public sectors such as healthcare, emergency assistance and providing financial support to the population.

In addition, he has added government agencies may use distributed registry technology when issuing visas, passports and other documents.
