Cybernetica, an Estonian company known as the developer of e-Estonia X-Road and the country’s blockchain based voting system, has now reported to develop similar system for Greenland. The upcoming data exchange framework for Greenland will be called “Pitu”.
On May 30, The Estonian company signed the agreement with the Greenlandic Agency for Digitisation in order to utilize the technology of Unified eXchange Platform (UXP) to the Pitu’s secure data exchange network, which is part of the country’s National Digital Strategy.
The head of UXP at Cybernetica, Rigo Kurg stated: “We are excited to be a part of the digitisation initiative of Greenland, particularly for the task of building a solid technological foundation.”
“This project enables us to explore new horizons quite literally, due to the extraordinary legal and geographical aspects of Greenland,” He added.
Among the first organizations joining, The UXP will implement secure data exchange during the time of the pilot version. The Pitu will be similar to the solution that is used in Estonia – the X-Road. The Cybernetica’s UXP technology has been previously empowered in several data exchange frameworks operating on a national level, for example NamX in Namibia and Trembita in Ukraine.
