European Commission declares that the region has already invested more than EUR 80 million in blockchain projects and around EUR 300 million more are to be invested in blockchain by 2020. According to Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, Europe has great plans on blockchain:
“In the future, all public services will use blockchain technology. Blockchain is a great opportunity (for European countries) to rethink their information systems, to promote user trust and the protection of personal data, to help create new business opportunities and to establish new areas of leadership, benefiting citizens, public services and companies.”
Experts believe that the region has an incredible potential. As reported by International Data Corporation (IDC) forecast, blockchain investments in Western Europe will rise from $400 million in 2018 to $3,5 billion in 2022. In four years this region will become the second largest blockchain investor after the United States (as it is shown on the graph). In 2017-2022 the fastest growth of blockchain spending will characterize such vital industries as manufacturing (78.8%), professional services (77.7%) and banking (74.7%).
Striving to make blockchain implementation more efficient, 23 European nations formed a Blockchain Partnership on 10 April, 2018. The countries of the union are aimed to exchange experience and promote blockchain applications across the EU-wide market.
The aim of IDACB is to help entrepreneurs from all over the world to enter European blockchain market. 11 days, 6 countries, and the greatest chance to build partnerships with European foundations – this is European World Blockchain Roadshow (WBRShow) organized by the Association.
