“Blockchain is today a much-discussed technology. It is often said, as with the advent of the Internet, that this technology could change many things with a direct impact on a variety of sectors through improvements in supply chains, financial and payment systems, notary businesses, business processes and governments. These are time-consuming processes that require research, new skills, training, investment, experimentation, and a change of mindset.”
Continiuosly growing interest towards blockchain has caused academia and private companies to think over about creating a center of excellence for the technology and promote new companies focused on blockchain and make new job places.
