Blockchain and the ecosystem of distributed ledger technologies are still in an early stage of technological development but is a fast-evolving environment. As the hype around “cryptocurrencies” is starting to fade, now comes the time to explore the policy implications of the technology more broadly and consider a holistic response, including an appropriate regulatory environment, at a global level that will facilitate a viable and fit-for-purpose innovation and adoption of the technology. The second edition of the Forum will convene senior decision-makers from the public and private sectors, experts, academics and other stakeholders to:
Assess the development of blockchain over the past 12 months and delve into some of the specific challenges to implementation and adoption
Discuss emerging policy responses and share best practices identified in public blockchain initiatives across the world
Investigate uses of blockchain in specific policy areas, highlighting the work of the OECD and other stakeholders.
In addition to the main program, the 2019 Forum will include a series of small workshops as well as a Govtech Start-up showcase featuring entrepreneurs working on blockchain-based solutions for the delivery of government services and achieving policy objectives.
