    Abstract The so-called disruptive technologies play an important role in shaping the next generation of digital government: Government 3.0. This new stage places the focus on the data-driven and evidence-based decision and policy making. The prerequisite in achieving this stage is the seamless access to government data. The use of blockchain supports the interoperability-by-default concept in the creation of public services. At the same time blockchain is addressing another important problem governments facing across all over the world, namely, low level of citizens’ trust. In this paper, the authors review literature and projects on blockchain as a tool for improving interoperability and trust in Government 3.0 and they outline the issues for further research in the area, taking into consideration the knowledge collected in existing projects and the opinions of experts in the domain. The research needs are synthesized a) by analysing recent EU-funded projects involving blockchain and b) by drawing a future scenario, which is evaluated by experts to formulate further research needs. Finally, fifteen research needs are identified for blockchain in digital government.
