Tackling oppurtunities

The Dutch way of working is about bringing companies, government and knowledge

institutions together to tackle challenges such as the opportunities presented by Blockchain. We want to channel the practical knowhow of fieldlabs to the general challenges of identity management, legal requirements and the likes. These challenges are best solved in a public-private partnership such as the Dutch Blockchain Coalition. - Frans van Ette, coalition manager.
