Governments world over have come out with relief packages, payouts etc. to help especially the needy to tide over in this Covid-19 pandemic. Is it possible to improve ease of access/use for the intended citizens, enhance the targeting of public money, and all this within a framework of improved operational gains and auditability of public funds? 

Enhanced targetting of Public money for the needy, an improved cost efficient secure and transparent Pension administration and a Decentralized identity for citizens – all these in this 5th part of Blockchain in Public sector series.
