The Smart Dubai Office, a government initiative directed by the Crown Prince of Dubai, is incorporating blockchain technology into its online payment portal, DubaiPay. Government is doing this for real-time reconciliation and settlement of transactions. This is one of the major steps towards Dubai's main purpose of becoming the world's first blockchain-powered government in 2020.

Dubai's Government is presently working on 20 use cases for blockchain technology to enhance its current operations. Dubai's government has made strategic collaboration with IBM and Consensys as advisors to help them and Smart Dubai further with their goals.

SDO developed a partnership with the Dubai's Department of Finance (DoF), and then the Smart Dubai Office (SDO) released the system on this Sunday with a press release labeling it a “blockchain-powered upgrade to its financial system’(Dubaipay)’.

Existing DoF procedures are dependent on staff members physically checking payments obtained from various portals to manually settle the transactions before settling them. This comprehensive process involves a fee deduction before the remaining sum is transferred to the specific overseeing authority, overall taking 45 days.

The DubaiPay Portal consists of 40 entities, along with 27 government and 14 non-government agencies, linked to the platform. The portal has obtained Dh13 from 9.4M transactions, which is 17% more as compared to last year.
