We are pleased to announce that the Digital Pound Foundation (DPF) has joined the Hyperledger Foundation as part of a group of 3 new Associate Members which includes the European Blockchain Association (EBA) along with DPF’s existing partners at the Digital Euro Association (DEA).
To kick off their affiliation, the 3 new associate members, including the Digital Pound Foundation, will be taking part in a May 10 webinar on Blockchain in Europe: Advancements, Opportunities and Challenges. The discussion will focus on the work these organisations are doing to drive blockchain technology adoption across Europe.
Daniela Barbosa, Executive Director, Hyperledger Foundation, and General Manager Blockchain and Identity at the Linux Foundation commented: “It’s clearer than ever that the enterprise blockchain ecosystem is accelerating in terms of both technology and adoption. Our newest members are jumping in quickly to help us keep advancing widespread development and adoption of open source blockchain technologies.”
Jannah Patchay, Policy Lead and Originating Member, Digital Pound Foundation added: “Hyperledger technologies have underpinned many of the most exciting experiments in central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) globally. We are thrilled to be joining the Hyperledger Foundation, and to have the opportunity to collaborate with their diverse and global community in exploring the possibilities that these new forms of digital money present”.
About the Digital Pound Foundation
The Digital Pound Foundation is an independent organisation incorporated in June 2021 to work with a variety of stakeholders and participants towards the implementation of a well-designed Digital Pound. Whilst most CBDC experiments have involved private sector technology providers, the overwhelming majority of these experiments, to date, have not involved participation from other private sector actors. The Digital Pound Foundation is unique in proposing a model whereby the public and private sectors can fully engage in the design, development and adoption of a digital Pound, thus contributing to its successful roll-out and helping drive forward the UK’s transition to a digital economy.
