This year’s first Summer Reception at the UK Parliament took place on Monday, 16 July at the Palace of Westminster. It was dedicated to the launch of a “BLOCKCHAIN FOR GOVERNMENT” COUNCIL, exploring how UK Government services best take advantage of the major opportunities of Blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies (DLTs).
During the event, the Blockchain Experts & Advisory board listed what it views as the best examples and use cases of Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies.
