The President and CEO of the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) announced blockchain-related initiatives for the city today, May 14.
The initiatives include the launch of the NYC Blockchain Resource Center and a public competition for blockchain apps to improve the public sector.
According to the NYCEDC release, the Blockchain Resource Center will serve as a way to educate the public about blockchain, bring entrepreneurs together to launch new ventures, and attempt to bring both industry and government players together for conversations about regulation.
The city’s blockchain competition, set to begin in late 2018, is modelled after NYC’s BigApps contest.
The NYCEDC released a request for proposals (RFP) today for organizations that can run the competition, which will involve workshops for government employees about blockchain and its use cases, as well as free educational workshops for the public.
