Blockchain. Building on a system of digital trust for Dutch society E-magazine Dutch Blockchain Coalition highlights opportunities and outstanding issues
Patient data that is safely sent from one hospital laboratory to another. Households that trade in energy. Smart contracts that ensure that freight consignments from container ships are efficiently transported on from the Rotterdam harbour via road, water and rail. The E-magazine published by the Dutch Blockchain Coalition today reveals how blockchain applications can help to realise further advances in our economy and society. At the same time the various articles and interviews also make it clear that a lot still needs to happen at the technical, societal and legal levels to ensure that blockchain becomes a reliable and future-proof exchange system. In the E-magazineyou can read about the coalitions' ambition, the action agenda that it is currently realising and the use cases that the coalition partners are working on. Some of the coalitions experts are interviewed about the importance of adequate legislation as well as the need for good communication about the impact of blockchain on our everyday lives.
