“Blockchain is today a much-discussed technology. It is often said, as with the advent of the Internet, that this technology could change many things with a direct impact on a variety of sectors through improvements in supply chains, financial and payment systems, notary businesses, business processes and governments. These are time-consuming processes that require research, new skills, training, investment, experimentation, and a change of mindset.”
The association highlighted the increasing interest in blockchain has paved way for researchers and private firms to look at the option of establishing a center for technological excellence and foster new firms centered on blockchain and create employment opportunities.
