US Government To Host Inter-Agency Forum On Blockchain Technology

The US Federal Blockchain Forum will breed cooperation across federal agencies as they pursue blockchain technology solutions.

As announced today, the US government will host The US Federal Blockchain Forum on July 18, 2017, to focus on possible use cases for blockchain technology.

Federal government managers are invited to preregister for the inter-agency event. It has been requested that departments send one or two representatives to provide two to three sentence proposals that highlight potential use cases involving blockchain technology as it relates each agency's agenda.

According to the announcement, the forum will allow "executives across the federal government to learn about advances in Blockchain technology, discuss use cases and set an agenda for working together to evaluate and implement it among our diverse missions."

The General Services Administration's (GSA's) Office of Information Technology Category partnered with the Secretary of State's Office of Global Partnerships to organize the GSA's Emerging Citizen Technology program. The US Federal Blockchain Forum is a facet of this cooperation.

At the event, participants will have an opportunity to exchange thoughts on blockchain use cases while identifying effective means of implementation with respect to issues of resource, policy, and compliance. A roadmap for the coming six months will be developed to illustrate the collaborative effort of cross-agency cooperation towards interoperability for blockchain technology.

ETHNews will continue to provide coverage as the event unfolds.
