Many leaders in government and industry see the huge potential for this new technology in the government domain. For example:
- The US OMB Director, Mick Mulvaney, recently said, ”Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize the financial services industry, the U.S. economy and the delivery of government services, and I am proud to be involved with this initiative.”
- US House of Representatives Jared Polis (D-Colo.) said “Blockchain has the potential to transform the 21st-century economy. Lawmakers need to understand that as the world rapidly changes, it’s our responsibility to ensure that we craft policies and adopt laws that match our ingenuity.”
The GBA facilitates communities of practice, steering committees and working groups to research blockchain related topics and explore new opportunities for members.
Being an international association, the GBA will address how governments around the world, at all levels, will benefit from blockchain. Notable progress is being made in many commercial locations where in-production blockchain networks are beginning to roll-out. GBA will help pave the way to blockchain’s smooth adoption in many government uses cases.
