National Archives White Paper Studies Blockchain

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) released a white paper about blockchain that aims to give federal records managers an understanding of blockchain technology and help them deal with its implications at their agencies. Its content is based on a project from FY2018, during which the research team attended interest group meetings, webinars, symposiums, and discussions with external blockchain experts; the team also performed a technical review and analysis of blockchain-related articles. The project’s goals were to help NARA understand how blockchain works, how the federal government is using it, and how it could impact records management.

The white paper features a selected bibliography of the articles the research team used, as well as a glossary of terms that are delineated by bold italics throughout.

For more information, read the white paper.
