Blockchain is a new disruptive information technology that

allows anonymous partners to operate safely without the

intermediation of a third party or the need for a central

authority. This enables the creation of peer-to-peer

distributed economies and paves the way for a range

of applications, from e-commerce to management.

Blockchain needs a blueprint to large-scale implementation

In spite of nascent collective standardisation efforts, there is an abscence of formal legal frameworks and an uncertain and unharmonised regulatory environment.

The UCL CBT seeks to reconcile industry players, and facilitate the establishment of global standards of Blockchain regulation and governance.
