The WEF (World Economic Forum) advises leaders of businesses and organizations to actively engage with ”cryptocurrencies” and the underlying technology ”the blockchain.”

We think it is very important that important authorities pay attention to cryptocurrency and the technology behind it, blockchain technology. Then it becomes more and more clear what the potential added value of this can be.

We found, as an example of this, a nice note from the World Economic Forum.
