Italy Calls Experts To Help In The Development Of Its Official Blockchain Strategy

According to him, techs like artificial intelligence and the blockchain can cause a revolution in people’s lives and this is why a productive country needs them.
Most of the participants are from domestic sectors of Italy and all of them are from the country. Some of the most important ones are Gian Luca Comandini, the Assobit co-founder, and Angiolini Giorgio, the Italtel head of marketing. Another prominent member is Marcella Atzori, director of the Blockchain & Society Policy Research Lab.

With the help from the experts, the main expectative of the government is that the main issues of the technology can be properly addressed and that more use cases will be identified so the Italian government will be able to provide the best use of the technology for its citizens.
