ACT-IAC Seeking Blockchain Proof of Concept Using Data as a Strategic Asset


Blockchain has the potential to help government provide more efficient and effective services to citizens and provide new value-added services. And harnessing that potential includes showing that the technology can be safely and securely applied to government.

That’s why ACT-IAC is seeking innovative applications of blockchain (and other distributed ledger technology) using data as a strategic asset in government.  Finalists will be invited to demonstrate their innovations at the ACT-IAC Blockchain Shark Tank event November 19 at the NASA Auditorium (in Washington DC.)

  • Any ACT-IAC member can submit a blockchain innovation that improves the business of government or services to citizens.
  • All submissions will be reviewed by leaders of the ACT-IAC Blockchain Working Group to select the finalists. The points of contact in the submission form will be notified if they are selected.
  • The selected finalist must commit to participate in the ACT-IAC Blockchain Shark Tank on November 19. More information here.

We are looking for:

  • Innovative blockchain proof of concept using data as a strategic asset.
  • Innovation that can be adapted, repurposed, or used by others beyond the initial target audience.
  • Innovation that improves the business of government or services to citizens.
  • Innovation that transforms existing capabilities or create new or disruptive capabilities.

Submissions are due by October 25, 2019


For questions about the submission and event, contact Frederic DeVaulx or Sudha Venkateswaran
