European Commission Study on Blockchains
A study on Blockchains has been carried out for the European Commission by Spark Legal Network, Michèle Finck, Tech4i2 and Datarella. Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs) as a set of trust technology is a key in free flow of data that underpins every data driven society. The study provides an extensive analysis on scenarios in building an EU legal framework for developing and deploying blockchain and DLT.
The overall objective of the Study is to provide evidence and support for policy approaches and concrete actions within the European blockchain initiative and to contribute to the building of an EU strategy in light of blockchain developments. The Study therefore analyses and assesses the legal framework in the EU with regard to blockchain technology and presents policy options where a need for adjustment or clarification is required. The Study also assesses what the impacts of blockchain and these policy options could be with a view to consider future blockchain policy developments.
