Helping Governments Understand & Interact with Cryptocurrency

The Government Blockchain Association (GBA) sponsors a Budget, Accountability, and Transparency Working Group. It is led by Steve Olson, the OCIO Congressional Programs Manager at the US Library of Congress. The Working Group invites all local, state (provincial), national and international government employees, along with members of the Government Blockchain Association, to study the opportunities and risks of blockchain technologies when applied to government budgeting, appropriations, and management.

One of the GBA members, Russell Castagnaro of GBA member company Wampei has proposed a project to launch a blockchain platform that will allow any government entity to accept cryptocurrencies as payments for taxes and other revenues. This along with many other uses for this new technology are explored.

GBA members that wish to participate n this project should log in and join the Budget, Accountability, and Transparency Working Group and attend our meetings on the First and Third Fridays of the month.

This topic and more will be explored during our Symposium on the Future of Money, Governance & the Law. Come and connect, communicate and collaborate with thought leaders in the government, blockchain and concurrency space.
