With the world first International Blockchain Standards meeting set to be held in Sydney in April 2017, Standards Australia will be facilitating a number of key activities to support the Blockchain Standards Initiative. The first of these will be the development of a Blockchain Standards Roadmap.
The road mapping exercise involving the undertaking of a survey, the hosting of a workshop and the delivery of a recommendations report is designed to identify key stakeholder issues and develop a priority list of standards for development to support blockchain technology. All relevant Australian stakeholders are invited to participate in the road mapping exercise by completing the survey and attending the workshop.
The key dates for the Blockchain Standards Roadmap activities:
- Survey (closing date 10 February 2017)
- Workshop (17 February 2017)
- Blockchain Standards Roadmap Recommendations Report (release 28 February 2017)
The Blockchain Standards Roadmap will provide recommendations for Australia’s strategic leadership on International Blockchain Standards, by identifying issues and use cases, defining standards development work streams and developing a draft work program for consideration by the International Blockchain Standards committee ISO/TC 307.
