Thailand is actively pursuing the use of blockchain technology, with the Electronic Transactions Development Agency revising the 2001 law to support the adoption of blockchain technology and smart contracts. Thailand's local banking industry is also looking at using blockchain to optimize document verification processes, and Thailand Post plans to introduce blockchain technology to increase the security of valuable packages by the end of 2017.
