Minister for Cabinet Office Matt Hancock gave a speech on the potential of blockchain technology to transform the way government works.

King’s Cross has certainly changed a bit in the last few years. Regeneration and investment has radically revitalised this part of London, and it’s exciting to see the results.

If you were to climb up on the roof, you’d probably be able to see the Emirates Stadium just up the road. And just beyond that, Stoke Newington, another area regenerated, which began life as the end-point of the New River, an artificial waterway built in the 1600s to bring fresh water from Hertfordshire down to central London.

Lets talk Blockchain


On 26 April, the British Government hosted its first blockchain partnership event. The event brought together industry, academia and government to talk about blockchain technology and how it could help improve citizens’ lives.

The focus of the day was to identify and explore potential applications of blockchain, ranging from the tracking of products through a supply chain to providing a clear and accessible record of how public money is spent.

There was huge enthusiasm about blockchain technology and the potential it offers to deliver services in completely new ways. There was also a healthy understanding of where we should not use this technology – it’s not a silver bullet and in a number of circumstances we identified other technical solutions that would meet user needs.
