This paper aims to explore the potential for blockchain design in the Nordic public sector context. Currently, little empirical blockchain research has been carried out in public organizations. In the study, we focus on one specific municipality-owned organization that provides lending services for associated municipalities. Our research question is How can blockchain support lending to municipal actors? Following the case study approach, we conducted thematic analyses of the empirical data collected from workshops and individual key-person interviews. Our analysis focused on the different design options and the impacts they will have for the architecture and governance of these systems. Results fall into six different categories: trust, transparency of documents, integrity, equal treatment, intermediation vs. disintermediation and openness of the process.
