OECD Global Blockchain Policy Forum 2021


15 Sept-1 Oct 2021      Virtual Interactive Event

Blockchain at the Frontier: Cross-border co-operation and stronger global governance

Blockchain represents a novel governance tool ruled by protocols and code rather than law and policy, allowing information and value to be secured, verified and transacted without central authority or intermediaries. Such decentralisation and disintermediation could displace traditional governance structures, but it also offers a chance to adapt them – to find new and better ways of connecting people, organisations and countries, and promoting cooperation and coordination in a range of local and global settings.

The 4th annual OECD Global Blockchain Policy Forum took place virtually on a series of dates between 15 September and 1 October 2021. Discussions delved into recent developments and emerging challenges across all levels of governance; from strengthening cross-border flows and international regulatory cooperation, to better connecting companies with investors and capital, and bringing new levels of transparency to the digital economy and control over our lives online.
