What we do

We digitally simplify citizens’ and industry access to government services.

Civic Ledger knows that government services can be confusing, inefficient, and tied up in red tape. We provide a modern digital fix that is transforming the future of government services.

Using innovative blockchain technology, we build open and secure digital platforms that streamline how you as a citizen interact with government.

We empower citizens and industry to self-manage their transactions with government as our digital platforms foster transparency and build trust between citizens, industry and governments.

Who We Are

Civic Ledger is an award-winning company that uses blockchain technology to digitally connect citizens and industry with government.

We are an innovative team of public sector experts, software engineers, business leaders, and financial technology specialists. We specialise in data-driven digital platform solutions with a public sector perspective.

Together, we have developed use cases for blockchain technology ranging from securing issuing civic entitlements, digitising intellectual property rights and registers to building peer-to-peer marketplaces for the trading of water rights.

How We Work


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.
