U.S. Logistics Agency launches Blockchain Sector binding tool

According to the Emerging Citizen Technology (ECT) program, an attempt was made in September to analyze a blockchain, which the General Services Administration (GSA) opened this week for the contributions of industry members, according to a post on its website.

These contributions will now be compiled into Atlas, an open-source tool, which will include "programs, use cases and resources" created by the private sector, and researchers working in public institutions.

The ECT is designed to serve as a resource that explains the potential uses of blockchain technology both for the U.S. government and the general public.

Justin Herman, the program manager, said that this work was formed, because new technologies, including blockchain and artificial intelligence, change faster than organizations can keep up with.

Earlier, Herman reported that he wanted the ECT program to close the gap between the interests of the government in blockchain technology and its applications and knowledge already owned by companies working with the technology.

Thus, the program will update its Atlas every week, adding use cases, research updates and information on ongoing projects that are being studied.
