Blockchain Technology Finds a New Use Case, Waiting Lists for Kazakhstan Kindergarteners

In nearly every industry and company, there is a need for an organization that blockchain technology could easily be used for. Supply chain management, healthcare, and the food industry all have certain protocols in place that require the transparency that a digital ledger affords. In the Kazakh capital of Astana, blockchain technology will be used for something new – the management of wait lists for kindergarten students, which Elorda Info, a local news website, announced today.

Before kindergarten-age children can be admitted to a school, the parents in Kazakhstan are required to apply to be accepted, which means that some schools have waiting lists for eager families. The federal law, under the Standard of State Service, determines how these kindergarteners are managed, prioritizing children of disabled parents, children without the care of a parent, children of large families, and special needs children.

The head of the Department of Investments and Business Development, Alisher Abdykadyrov, said that this new blockchain system will be implemented by February 1st. The use of a distributed ledger will help with the functioning of waiting lists, bringing transparency to this complicated process.

Based on the information available on Elorda Info, the process became digital in 2018, but the system came with many problems. One of the biggest issues that citizens complained about was the incorrect storage of data. With the new service, parents will have the option of seeing kindergarten schools graded with a rating, and they can view information about their educational programs.

The new system has a similar style to Uber, Airbnb, and, which they allegedly were inspired by to create this new platform.

Presently, there is no framework for cryptocurrency in Kazakhstan, but there is been an abundant interest in blockchain technology. Recently, President Nursultan Nazarbayev urged regulators to take action, working towards global cooperation.

Speaking at the Blockchain Conference Astana in June last year, governor Kairat Kaliyev of the Astana International Financial Center voiced the concern that the organization is attaching to blockchain and crypto. Kaliyev noted further that the center aims to provide financial support for innovations in fintech, and that they offer courses to learn more about blockchain technology and programming.
