Denmark Joins EU Blockchain Partnership


A local Danish news outlet, Finans Watch, has reported that Denmark has joined an EU blockchain partnership initiative and will utilize blockchain in shipping.

The EU formed the initiative with 22 member states in April, 2018, to act as a “vehicle for cooperation among Member States to exchange experience and expertise in technical and regulatory fields and prepare for the launch of EU-wide blockchain applications across the Digital Single Market.”

Danish Business Minister Brian Mikkelsen, signed the agreement to join the blockchain initiative on June 4, 2018.
