The United Kingdom to launch a Blockchain lab paid for by the Government.
A Blockchain lab is scheduled to launch in the UK next month as a result of Innovate Finance teaming up with Hartree Centre to explore the opportunities offered by blockchain technology.
Hartree Centre is a data analytics research facility that has received 37.5 million GBP in seed funding from the UK government.
Founded in 2012, it offers new opportunities for problem solving, forecasting and analysis using a high-performance computing.
Moreover, Hartree Centre also works side-by-side with 24 researchers from IBM at the Sci-Tech Daresbury to develop new tools, algorithms and approaches to Big Data.
If we can use the lab to develop open standards for the blockchain in financial services, we will be moving one step closer to accelerating the mass adoption of this breakthrough technology.”
