Australia's government has released its blockchain roadmap.


Australia's government has released a blockchain roadmap outlining a strategy to facilitate job creation, economic growth, more cost-efficient business, and higher productivity in that country.

The roadmap concentrates on the areas of regulation and standards; skills, capability, and innovation; and international investment and collaboration, outlining 12 steps the governments hopes to complete before 2026.

The roadmap highlights use cases that include blockchain's application to the agriculture, education, and financial sectors, and the establishment of a team of government blockchain users to brainstorm efficient government services using international examples.

The roadmap also seeks industry and educational institutions’ cooperation to "develop common frameworks and course content for blockchain qualifications."
