The Global Blockchain Business Council (GBBC) has launched an initiative that draws attention to “the innovative work that leading academic institutions around the world are undertaking to promote a greater understanding of blockchain technology and its numerous applications”. The industry association, whose membership is made up of organisations and thought leaders from over 40 countries, will provide executive summaries of technical reports and studies produced by the aforementioned organisations. It will kick things off with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) Digital Currency Initiative (DCI), showcasing its work around the development of digital currencies and blockchain technology. Topics captured in the initial collection of summaries include electric microgrids, digital fiat currencies, the lightning network, and secure asset registries.
