New York City launches Blockchain resource center

New York City has announced the opening of a blockchain resource center this summer during the opening of Consensus 2018.

The city of New York will also start a public policy blockchain competition in late 2018. According to PCMag's Rob Marvin this is 'to apply the technology to municipal governing'. Next to that, NYC will be partnering up with Coindesk on a blockchain job fair. New York will issue a request for proposals from organizations that want to run the contest.

During the opening of Consensus, James Patchett, president and CEO of the New York City Economic Development Corporation, said on the resource center: 'This central hub will help foster the city's blockchain ecosystem, it will build public awareness for blockchain technology through education, and it will connect entrepreneurs through business suport, mentorship and advisory services. But best of all, the center will serve as a much needed community space. And the center will also bring together stakeholders, government leaders, consumer advocates and investors, to tackle challenges facing the industry, like the regulatory environment.
