3rd meeting of CEPS Taskforce: Towards a European Internet of Value? Leveraging blockchain to boost the EU Digital Single market

Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs) have become extremely popular, and are being tested by governments, academics and industry in view of a future that promises more efficiency, less intermediation, better service at higher speed with less problems, and the enablement of new, innovative decentralized services. Originally designed to back cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, distributed ledger architectures have proliferated and evolved, permeating many sectors of the economy, and conquering the attention of most stakeholders. The Task Force aims to address, inter alia, whether the EU project can really benefit from a widespread investment in DLTs and in what sectors are DLTs most promising.

 

This meeting will focus on a number of issues:

-  Risks and opportunities of blockchain in finance and in the public sector

- Identity use case

- Cryptocurrencies

- Bankings' view on blockchain"
