One of our goals in the MITRE Research & Development Program is to look ahead to the future and determine which emerging technologies could have major impact on government agencies. We want to help our sponsors prepare for opportunities, as well as disruptions.
One of these emerging technologies is blockchain. We’ve been exploring the potential uses of blockchain technology by government agencies. For example, a recent white paper looks at the core technologies, platforms, and applications of blockchains, both public and private. It also discusses new and emerging blockchain features that could be useful to government agencies. And for an overview of how this new technology could influence your interactions with the government, we invite you to take a spin around the blockchain.
