Launch of the International Association of Trusted Blockchain Applications - INATBACommPRO Editorial Staff

105 organizations representing the full distributed ledger technology (DLT) ecosystem announced their commitment to a new platform, the International Association of Trusted Blockchain Applications. Launched with a ceremonial digital signing at the European Commission headquarters, INATBA will promote the use of blockchain technology by developing a predictable, transparent, and trust-based global framework.

INATBA brings together industry, startups and SMEs, policy makers, international organisations, regulators, civil society and standard setting bodies to support blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) to be mainstreamed and scaled-up across multiple sectors.

To unlock the full transformational potential and harness the benefits of blockchain and DLT for businesses, the public sector and society at large, INATBA aims to develop a framework that promotes public and private sector collaboration, regulatory convergence, legal predictability and ensures the system’s integrity and transparency.
