Name: Frans van Ette
Organization: Dutch Blockchain Coalition
Function: coalition manager
As manager of the Dutch Blockchain Coalition Frans van Ette will be addressing the overall blockchain development in The Netherlands, the existing Dutch blockchain ecosystem and the unique Dutch way of collaborating through public-private initiatives, in which government, the public sector and knowledge institutions work together to advance a common agenda. He will highlight the foundations needed to further develop blockchain technology and potential applications and address the need to seek out national and international partnerships in order to achieve this.
Frans van Ette: “The rapid development of distributed ledger technologies (blockchain) leads to challenges that cannot be resolved within the borders of a single country. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance to collaborate on the international stage in order to effectively coordinate the development of this young, disruptive technology.”
