Take this survey to help us shape the 2019 forum



Blockchain has the potential to transform the functioning of a wide range of industries, changing how value is created, owned and exchanged. Its features can increase transparency and traceability, facilitate market access and improve the efficiency of transactions. Fulfilling blockchain’s potential, however, depends on the integrity of the processes and requires adequate policies and an appropriate regulatory environment to unleash this potential while addressing the risks of misuse. Governments and the international community will play a significant role in shaping that environment, drawing from an ongoing dialogue with a broad range of stakeholders.


Hosted by the OECD Blockchain Policy Centre, the second annual OECD Global Blockchain Policy Forum will convene senior decision-makers from the public and private sectors, experts, academics and other stakeholders to:

  • address the benefits and risks of blockchain across a broad range of policy areas

  • discuss the emerging policy and regulatory environment, and identify best practices

  • investigate uses in specific policy areas, highlighting the work that the OECD and other international organisations are doing
