US Tech Group Releases ‘Playbook’ To Help Gov’t Understand If It Needs Blockchain

The American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC) released a second Blockchain resource specifically targeting government uptake of the technology this month, Forbes reports Sunday, Apr 15.

The ACT-IAC, an advisory structure in existence since the 1970s, has opted to create a five-point checklist for US government agencies.

This, along with other materials in the Blockchain Playbook, should allow such agencies to cut through “hype” and work out which – if any – aspects of Blockchain would “solve their problem.”

The checklist consists of “Assessment,” “Readiness,” “Selection,” “Implementation” and “Integration.”

“With blockchain near the top of the hype cycle in 2017, it is important to separate reality from hype when it comes to which uses cases can actually benefit from a blockchain solution,” part of the first ‘Assessment’ section reads.

The US government has pursued various Blockchain projects for several years, deploying research schemes to look at overhauling countless sections of the country’s economy and even its defence systems.

With in-depth knowledge of Blockchain’s capabilities and technical principles still hard to find, however, ACT-IAC appears to see a vacuum requiring continued attention.

Industry technologists and outside experts collaborated on the Playbook, which follows the group’s first Blockchain tool, the Blockchain Primer, released last year.

In January, Cointelegraph provided an overview of US government activities in the Blockchain sphere via our Expert Blog.

  1. I don’t typically comment on posts, but as a long time reader I thought I’d drop in and wish
    you all the best during these troubling times.

    From all of us at Royal CBD, I hope you stay well with the COVID19 pandemic
    progressing at an alarming rate.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the
    site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it
    by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would
    appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the
    works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself
    during the coronavirus scare!
