Italian Government has announced the 30 people who will shape its crypto policy

It is being reported by bitcoin.com that the government of Italy has released a list of the 30 individuals it has selected to develop the nations policy toward distributed ledger technology (DLT) as well as crypto. This comes after the nation signed a joint declaration recently with 6 other EU countries pomising it will promote blockchain technology.

The group of 30 professionals is made up 10 members of the business community, 10 members from organizations/academia and 10 members of trade unions/civil society.

Names include Angiolini Giorgio, current member of the UN's “UNINFO Blockchain and distributed management technologies” organization, Atzori Marcella, “Blockchain Expert” for the European Commission/European Parliament, and Epifani Stefano, an advisor for the United Nations.

The group will be responsible for promoting DLT in the public sectors and creating regulatory frameworks to protect consumers. This seems like a very optimistic step forward as it doesn't look like this team is trying to stifle the space with regulation, rather create a working ecosystem that can draw in greater adoption.

Still, what they come up with remains to be seen, so stick with Chepicap for any and all updates!
