On April 10, 22 countries in the European Union signed a Declaration on the Establishment of a European Blockchain Partnership. Aimed at cementing Europe as a world-leader in the development and launch of blockchain technologies, the international partnership claims to be “a vehicle for cooperation amongst Member States to exchange experience and expertise in technical and regulatory fields and prepare for the launch of EU-wide blockchain applications across the Digital Single Market for the benefit of the public and private sectors.”

Since its launch of the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum in February of this year, the European Commission has already poured 80 million euro into blockchain projects supporting both technological and societal advancement. The Commission plans on spending an additional 300 million euro for blockchain advancement over the next few years.
