Can you use blockchain technology without a coin of some kind?


As the title states, wondering if a government for example could transition to blockchain technology without having to manage / distribute / issue coin or alt fiat.

Yes this would certainly make it centralized – which is not the debate at hand here.

I guess if a government wanted to upgrade its technology with a centralized blockchain that they funded / kept running / and did not issue coins as a form of payment (essentially accepting to foot the cost) could it do so?

Would it do so?

My boomer dad seems to think blockchain technology is separate from crypto – but my argument is you inevitably need to believe in A coin that you choose to accept if we all agree a government might adopt the technology. That in turn would open the door to accepting other coins, such as BTC.
