Project description

Demonstrating usages and services made possible by the use of a third party.

The blockchain technology is likely to revolutionize transactions and exchanges; just as the internet has enabled peer-to-peer communication, the blockchain technology will in the coming years provide peer-to-peer transactions with a decentralised and autonomous logic. The focus on its possible applications today is akin to taking a step ahead of the next stage of the digital revolution and the advent of a “horizontal” society without intermediaries.

Launched in 2016 for a four-year period, the BST project aims to address three major challenges for project partners and their clients: improving their service offer, optimising costs and developing new uses.

Expected results

  • Identifying uses that can enhance services around digital trust based on blockchain architectures.
  • Defining the technical, legal, economic and social conditions that allow the deployment of blockchain oriented services.
  • Developing a modular digital platform for the instantiation of cross-domain use cases based on a blockchain.
