Happy New Year and a very warm welcome to the January 2019 Blockchain Innovation publication
Heading up this edition, we are honoured to have Eva Kaili, MEP, Rapporteur of the European Parliament of the Blockchain Resolution as a prestigious contributor. In her article, she explains the importance of building the European Union’s global leadership where blockchain technology is concerned.
In addition, Gunnar Hökmark MEP from the Group of the European People’s Party (Christian Democrats) explores the world of financial markets in Europe and asks if it is possible to avoid a crisis. He also tells us about the potential impact of the role of disruptive change to new technologies on the market.
Finally, in a very special in-depth feature, Stefan Junestrand, CEO of Grupo Tecma Red and a member of the European Blockchain Observatory shares his thoughts on what a blockchain-based governance model for smart cities looks like.
As we enter 2019, I hope you find the insights in this edition insightful. Feel free to get in touch with me if you would like to contribute an opinion piece at any time during the future.
