Announced Monday during blockchain week in New York, the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is launching several initiatives to put the city on the map as a blockchain technology hub. Foremost among them is a plan to open a "Blockchain Center" that will both promote public awareness of the technology and facilitate conversations among industry stakeholders.

The NYCEDC also announced a competition, expected to launch in late 2018, intended to generate ideas for improving municipal services with blockchain tech.
