Andrew Bragg, senator for New South Wales, is also a firm believer in the blockchain technology as he opines that it can aid in facilitating government processes and regulate financial regulation more efficiently.

The Australian government has given AUD 350,000 to Standards Australia for developing international blockchain standards. As a growing industry, it has the potential for job opportunities; however, this also requires skill-based professionals to lead the development.

Other than Australia, UK, UAE, Netherlands, Singapore, and China are also recognising the potential of the blockchain technology and adopted a broad approach towards it and encouraging its development.
