Taiwan Blockchain Alliance
Blockchain has become an important trend in the digital economy era. Many private enterprises have already operated well, and many groups have been set up spontaneously to provide many suggestions to the government. In order to open a channel between private sectors and governments to let policy making more in line with the needs of the industry, it is necessary to build a communication platform between them. Therefore, the National Development Council and the domestic industries, governments, academic and research institutes jointly established the "Taiwan Blockchain Alliance" as a platform to enable two-way information exchange, conduct international cooperation, promote field application and talent cultivation, and create a sound industrial development environment.
Blockchain has become an important trend in emerging global technology.
