Lots; of momentum on the Blockchain front, look at the news of last week e.g.:
(1) UK’s FCA Considering Blockchain Commercial Approval
(2) Australia Getting Serious about Blockchain Voting
(3) WFE Requests Greater Regulatory Clarity for Blockchain
The United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is reportedly weighing approval for a number of companies that have various products that utilize blockchain technology. If that regulatory approval is ultimately given, it would enable blockchain-based products to be made available to the country’s consumers. The companies under consideration are all part of the Authority’s Project Innovate venture – an effort designed to provide FCA counsel to startups about regulatory compliance concerns for their state-of-the-art products. More than three dozen startups have received FCA approval in the project’s first year.
