SORA Entry to World Govhack 2017

December 27, 2017

We submitted SORA Gov as our entry to the World Govhack 2017 The World Govhack is a hackathon by the UAE government to encourage new technologies to address issues in governance, refugees, citizenship, etc.

This year, their focus is on developing blockchain solutions for public uses.

We tried to add Ethereum to the SORA social contracts but it proved to be very unwieldly and inefficient. So we scrapped blockchain from our tech stack.

Updates

December 12, 2021: SORA Gov is now part of Pantry Govern. It uses no blockchain at all!
