EU Countries Sign Blockchain Partnership - Progress Made

"In the future, all public services will use [Blockchain] technology".

Andrus Ansip pointed out the importance of becoming the world leader in digital technology and called on the European Commission to give full support to the European technology sector "both politically and financially".

"While we have supported more than 500 funds to date, this is the first time that the European Union has created such a unique programme".

Blockchain technology is a system of organization of distributed databases.

Some 22 European countries have this week signed an agreement to collaborate and work on creating EU-wide blockchain applications, in an attempt to support the EU Digital Single Market and avoid fragmentation across member states. As with [artificial intelligence]: "we should make the most of this new opportunity to innovate".

I believe that the establishment of this partnership not only ensures that member states will be at the forefront of blockchain technology, but it also ensures that Europe on the whole has the power to keep up with Asia and America in terms of their rapid blockchain technology progression. All member states are invited to become part of the Blockchain Partnership. This new blockchain partnership will enable each member state to work together, and facilitate the implementation and interoperability of blockchain services.
