European Commission Urges EU To Play ‘Leading Role’ In Blockchain Dev

European Commission (EC) Vice-President Andrus Ansip has recently called on Europe to become a world leader in digital innovation by embracing Blockchain technology, along with Artificial Intelligence (AI), in a speech at EC's Digital Day 2018 in Brussels Tuesday, April 10. Quoting a British international technology investment firm Atomico, Ansip argued that Europe is “home to the world's leading AI research community,” while according to the European technology sector, Europe is “best positioned to play a leading role” in Blockchain as well. In March, the EC revealed its plans to release a joint regulatory framework on fintech, including crowdfunding and Blockchain technology standards. Earlier on Feb. 1, the EC announced the launch of the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum aiming to apply Distributed Ledger Technology, of which Blockchain is one kind, to the bloc’s economy.
