Two working groups established for Aussie blockchain roadmap

Two collaborative National Blockchain Roadmap Working Groups have been established to support the National Blockchain Roadmap Steering Committee. Additionally, two working groups were established in August 2020 on supply chains and credentialing, linked to signposts two and three of the National Blockchain Roadmap.

The new working groups will progress analysis of blockchain technology in Australia, with a focus on blockchain as an enabling technology to support cybersecurity operations, helping businesses ease the regulatory compliance burden.

The new working groups will explore the current state of the identified use case and the economic opportunity it presents, and identify technical, regulatory or other barriers to the adoption of blockchain.

The steering committee selected members following an expression of interest consultation process.

A panel of government representatives and relevant organisations, such as Standards Australia, will provide real-time feedback and identify cross-cutting issues for the groups as they emerge.

The groups will develop and present an initial discovery report to the steering committee in early 2021.
