What we do

Civic Ledger uses emerging technologies including blockchain and smart contracts to build open and secure government platforms for innovation, simplifying its engagement with citizens and industry.

In an ever increasing digitised society, we see that transparency is our greatest opportunity to ensure Governments and public sector organisations establish a common view on data collection, management, governance and its use. Fairness and privacy must underpin the new social and economic models to protect civic trust.

We believe that the key to civic trust is consensus-driven governance and transparent decision making leading to improved service delivery, better data-driven policy outcomes and enhanced operations.

Globally, governments are not only looking for streamlined and clear frameworks for data governance, interoperability and transparency but also looking for solutions that deliver security and privacy.

As blockchain is a governance technology, Civic Ledger optimises its value proposition of immutability, encryption, tokenisation, distribution and decentralisation to deliver digital exchange platforms which provide single-truth data marketplaces for government, civil society and business to co-create economies of the future.

Our applications and solutions enable citizens and customers to self-manage the speed, convenience, and control over their engagements and transactions with governments resulting in a more collaborative and collective creation of digital value linked to public resources and civic engagement.

Civic Ledger's mission is to deliver on blockchain's potential and build viable solutions for real-use cases that improve people’s interactions with government for the longer term.

Who We Are

Civic Ledger is a multi-award winning global company that provides strategic advice and technical delivery of blockchain-complete and surrounding technology solutions for government ecosystems.

We specialise in data-driven platform solutions with a public sector perspective – within the civic service itself or where the civic service is a major stakeholder - to deliver fair access to shared public resources and entitlements.

With our co-founders and a strong team of experts, we have developed real-world blockchain use cases within three distinct but interconnected ecosystems: water, civic and the built environment. We are globally connected with the latest market trends and conditions for the adoption of blockchain and smart contract technologies where we shift from the abstract to evidence based thought leadership.

We combine strategy, product design, and technology, to de-risk our customers’ future. We leverage emerging technology to help governments be more accessible, efficient and effective in an increasing digitised society. With the rapid global adoption of emerging technology like AI, algorithms and IoT, there is no time to wait.

Civic Ledger acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this nation. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which our company is located and where we conduct business. We pay our respects to ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging. Civic Ledger is committed to honouring Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land, waters and seas and their rich contribution to society.

How We Work

The Future

Future Economy
As a Government we want to build responsive digitised citizen-at-the-centre services so we become more accessible, efficient, transparent and trusted whilst lowering costs due to intra-department and inter-department data interoperability.

Future Ecosystems
As Industry we want to trust government issued data so we can build new digital marketplace ecosystems that governments do not need to operate however will have oversight of the data and transactions due to standards and real-time auditing.

Future Society
As a Citizen I want to self-serve and self manage my transactions and engagement with government so I can have access to services faster whilst my data is kept secure and private.
