OECD Global Blockchain Policy Forum 2019 SeptemberSep 12 2019 - SeptemberSep 13 2019 Europe/MadridOECD Conference Centre, Paris, France


Blockchain and the ecosystem of distributed ledger technologies is still in an early stage of technological development but is a fast evolving environment. As the hype around “cryptocurrencies” is starting to fade, now comes the time to explore the policy implications of the technology more broadly and consider a holistic response, including an appropriate regulatory environment, at a global level that will facilitate a viable and fit-for purpose innovation and adoption of the technology.

The second edition of the Forum will convene senior decision-makers from the public and private sectors, experts, academics and other stakeholders to:

  • Assess the development of blockchain over the past 12 months and delve into some of the specific challenges to implementation and adoption
  • Discuss emerging policy responses and share best practices identified in public blockchain initiatives across the world
  • Investigate uses of blockchain in specific policy areas, highlighting the work of the OECD and other stakeholders


In addition to the main programme, the 2019 Forum will include a series of small workshops as well as a Govtech Start-up showcase featuring entrepreneurs working on blockchain-based solutions for the delivery of government services and achieving policy objectives.
