The Ministry of Digital Affairs recently released an extensive and very ambitious digitalisation plan called the “From Paper to Digital Poland” that mirrors steps taken by Nordic countries such as Estonia and Finland in societal transformation using digital technologies.  

Part of those plans are to tap into Blockchain technology as well as digital public services, moving to a cashless society and the implementation of electronic identification (eID). The Polish plans for Blockchain include finding regulatory, legal and economic solutions that:

  • Will create a large field for the development of innovative Polish projects associated with digital currencies.
  • Will provide adequate supervision and ensure good laws on these projects for the safety of consumers. 
  • Will allow the use of Blockchain technology for safe, undeniable and reliable transactions in administration and business.

According to at Coindesk, the announcement was followed by intensive dialogue between the Ministry of Digital Affairs and Poland’s Bitcoin and Blockchain tech industry. A second meeting is now scheduled for July.
