techUK publishes Blockchain White Paper

This white paper, Blockchain in Action: embracing the potential, showcases the rich variety of uses to which techUK members have already put the technology, with case studies spanning sectors from insurance, agriculture, education, music and food supply chains to financial services.

With this white paper techUK members send a clear message: blockchain is already at work in many markets and is helping to solve complex challenges across multiple sectors.

We must also work to remove the remaining barriers standing in the way of the UK reaping full benefit from DLT technologies. The paper gives details of difficulties in the legal, regulatory and practical spheres.

To address the complex challenges and increase blockchain adoption by both the public and private sectors, techUK recommends:
- The launch of a publicly backed strategy to help foster and develop the technology;
- For government to assist with improving understanding and the development of the technology and its capacity to scale;
- Clarify and change specific areas of law which hold DLT back.
In a data driven world, decentralisation, security and privacy have never been so critical. Blockchain helps companies and people store, access and exchange data in a unique and secure way. The development of this technology, which is already in use in many sectors and companies, can help foster greater collaboration and trust.

Join us on Monday 17 June for the launch of the white paper with quickfire presentations, panels discussions and keynote speeches from Laura Bailey, Chairperson of Qadre, and Tom Rodden, Chief Science Adviser at DCMS.
