Abstract: The main objective of this paper is to put forward a system for managing the identity of the citizens of a country by leveraging the power of blockchain technology. The paper illustrates how a decentralized system can help make the entire process of identity management transparent and tamper-proof at the same time. While most of the existing blockchain based solutions rely on blocks themselves, the system proposed here emphasizes on the usage of transactions. Decentralization is achieved with this system in the sense that total control over the network does not reside with a single authority, but rather is distributed among multiple authorized government entities. 
Keywords: Blockchain, Tamper-proof, Transaction, Transparency, Identity.
Scope of the Article: Information Ecology and Knowledge Management
