Dutch Blockchain Coalition
Blockchain is a young technology, which makes digital trust possible and establishes its own path on the hype cycle. We are in the initial phase and so we still need to discover where the actual possibilities lie and what the pitfalls are. The social, economic, technical and legal expertise in this area is still only present to a limited extent within specialised companies and at knowledge and research institutions. The importance of the best-known blockchain – Bitcoin – is, although conceptually brilliant, still relatively limited and there are currently no large-scale operational market implementations outside of the financial sector.
The need for a coalition
The Dutch Blockchain Coalition is a joint venture between industry, government and knowledge institutions. Together they have assumed a leading role and joint responsibility for the success of the Action Agenda of the Dutch Blockchain Coalition.
