With blockchain technology already here to revolutionize how people use the Internet to share knowledge and transact services, it is inevitable that community groups will be building platforms, not websites.
Ratepayers Australia is certainly starting this transformation journey right now, which will take several years. The plan is Ratepayers Australia be involved as a pilot test site for deploying a blockchain digital platform. This online presence, currently a website, is the virtual space that will transform and become our future digital platform for our networks of grass-root ratepayers advocates and partners to:
- Connect with each other to share information, resources and talents,
- Innovate, through collaborative and agile projects to develop new value adding services
- Advocate for reforms and ongoing improvements that future-proof good governance behaviours and practices in our councils.
