The Government of the Generalitat has approved a strategy to promote the development of the blockchain ecosystem in Catalonia with the aim of promoting innovation , leadership and attracting talent , investment and companies in DLT technologies .
A blockchain (chain of blogs) is a technology that allows you to perform a set of transactions without there being a prior trust between the parties and without the need for intermediaries. This technology guarantees transactions, makes them irrevocable and also makes them transparent . Everyone can check what transactions have been made, which allows consensus to be reached in a distributed manner.
The new blockchain strategy of Catalonia , coordinated by the Department of Digital Policies and Public Administration, is based on a program of actions based on six axes :
- Administration : improve public services through the adoption of blockchain and DLT technologies and bet by the Generalitat of Catalonia as a pioneer in its application.
- Promotion : position Catalonia as a country of reference in blockchain and DLT within the international technological map and disseminate the opportunities and the impact it generates its deployment.
- Innovation : promote research and innovation through research and technology centers, and develop innovation environments for their adoption in different sectors.
- Ecosystem : promote a new industry around the blockchain and DLT technology and boost the demand for services and solutions associated to priority vertical sectors.
- Talent : generate, retain and attract talent, both technological and entrepreneurial, with the knowledge and skills necessary for the development of this new industry.
- Regulation : analyze the implications of the regulation on the deployment of this technology and how the applications that use it are regulated.
