New Jersey creates blockchain task force

posted 2 months ago
New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed a bill into law to create a Blockchain Initiative Task Force. The group will study use-cases for blockchain. The Blockchain Initiative Task Force will be responsible for blockchain research, implementation, and assessing the usability of blockchain on the state and local level.

Specifically, the bill outlines a few key areas where blockchain will be most useful including medical records, banking, property auctions, and land ownership. New Jersey is not the only state to have a blockchain taskforce. The New York Legislature also has a taskforce entirely dedicated to cryptocurrencies.
