Nasdaq has shared its proposal of how an eGovernment infrastructure can ensure citizen stability during times of uncertainty. Inspired by the eGov solutions in Estonia, the organization builds a plan of how such features can be employed throughout the US. One main motivator for this is the need for more expedited delivery of stimulus packages to citizens and businesses.
For the eGovernment to work, each account needs a digital identity and users can be verified through biometrics that ensure "de-duplication and [secure] account access." Nasdaq foresees that this online infrastructure will allow for the government to send "programmable eMoney or USD (eVouchers) worth $1,000 to all users who registered." The proposal highlights that the transaction delivery system also needs to be scalable and capable of performing an unlimited amount of transactions per day.
