The urgency of the researched problem is conditioned by the need to make public administration and public administration in the State more transparent, first of all, through the introduction of such a system of government in which citizens would have confidence. It is noted that society has recently been thinking more and more about e-government, more broadly about ways to create innovative tools that would help better meet government obligations to him. It is emphasized that in this sense, Blockchain is the most promising and truly innovative technology. It is noted that this technology has set completely new rules of the game at the level of public administration and public administration. Therefore, the aim of the article is to evaluate the possibility of applying innovation in public administration in the context of Blockchain technology from the standpoint of the approach to its use in public administration and as a fundamental institutional innovation in public administration. Scientific intelligence is prepared at the junction of information law and science of public administration, its methodological basis, above all, the dialectical method of cognition, which allows to consider socio-political and legal phenomena and processes in development and relationships.
It is alleged that through Blockchain the state can carry out its obligations in the form of providing administrative services to citizens without any intermediaries. It is emphasized that the distributed database, which is Blockchain, also makes it possible to "decentralize" trust from the central
government to nodes (network members), which in this context are citizens. It is argued that Blockchain, through a number of characteristics, including immutability and decentralization, is a good opportunity to encourage society to participate in the support and verification of transactions in the blockchain network, thus creating a decentralization of this network that transforms any public administration into a transparent one. and effective open data management. In conclusion, it is emphasized that this is exactly the model of so-called power. good management, which is sought by any democratic country, including Ukraine.
