OECD Blockchain Policy Forum 2019
The OECD Global Blockchain Policy Forum will be held on 12-13 September 2019 and will convene senior decision-makers from the public and private sectors, experts, academics and other stakeholders to assess the development of blockchain, policy responses to it and how it can be best used in a secure, trusted and inclusive way.
Blockchain and the ecosystem of distributed ledger technologies is 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.
