The United Nations Internet Governance Forum (UN-IGF) has allocated a full week to the Blockchain Assurance & Standardization Dynamic Coalition, hosted by the Government Blockchain Association (GBA), to provide content and programming during the annual meeting in Kyoto, Japan on October 8-12, 2023.
The Blockchain Assurance & Standardization Dynamic Coalition is a globally diverse group that has been approved by the Secretariat of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) under the United Nations. It is led by Mr. Dino Cataldo Dell’Accio, Chief Information Officer of the UN Joint Staff Pension Fund (UNJSPF), and Mr. Gerard Dache, Executive Director of the Government Blockchain Association (GBA). The coalition aims to develop general and industry-specific blockchain standards for domains such as Artificial Intelligence and Communication Infrastructure. They meet regularly to discuss global standards and best practices. You can find more information about the coalition on the IGF’s website.
The dedication of a full week to blockchain standards underscores the importance of engaging with the global community to work together and use this technology to improve the lives of citizens globally. With this opportunity, the GBA-supported coalition will provide content to an audience of over 100,000 attendees, including participants present in person and those joining online from around the world.
“We are thrilled and honored to support the UN-IGF and provide blockchain standards related content during this year’s annual meeting in Kyoto,” remarked Gerard Dache, Executive Director of the Government Blockchain Association. “This represents a remarkable opportunity for the Blockchain Assurance & Standardization Dynamic Coalition to showcase its work and contribute to meaningful discussions that impact the global blockchain landscape.”
The group will showcase the Blockchain Maturity Model (BMM), a globally recognized model to evaluate the trustworthiness of blockchain solutions. The model is used by potential investors, customers, and government acquisition officials to evaluate blockchain solutions before making financial or other commitments. The BMM is also used as a roadmap to guide developers to build solutions that earn the trust of their stakeholders.
The Blockchain Assurance & Standardization Dynamic Coalition supported by the GBA is working alongside the UN-IGF to curate a compelling agenda that reflects the most current and relevant trends in the field. This collaboration aims to inspire attendees to explore the potential of blockchain technology, foster international cooperation, and drive forward global standards that will shape the digital future.
