Macro Solutions Sponsors ACT-IAC’s Blockchain Forum
Washington, DC – September 20, 2017 – Macro Solutions is a proud sponsor of today’s American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC) Blockchain Forum being held at the Renaissance Washington Hotel. This forum provided the government and industry attendees with a foundational survey of blockchain, examples of existing and potential blockchain use cases, determining when blockchain may be applicable, learning how to assess and evaluate, and making connections with peers and potential partners who could help deliver blockchain solutions today. Blockchain is a transparent, trusted, publicly accessible distributed ledger that allows for secure transfers of encrypted information.
Macro Solutions’ Vice President, Todd Hager, is the Industry Chair of the ACT-IAC Emerging Technology Community of Interest and helped launch the ACT-IAC Blockchain Working Group (BWG) this past May. In forming the BWG, Mr. Hager enlisted the help of GSA, specifically with the help of Jose Arrieta, to sponsor a project focused on the first of steps of crafting a “Blockchain Playbook.” The first deliverable in this project was the “Blockchain Primer” introduced by Mr. Hager at today’s Blockchain Forum and soon to be released widely to the entire ACT-IAC membership. Mr. Hager and Macro Solutions are actively engaged with the assessment and evaluation of blockchain and related technology within the federal government.
