Purpose and Focus

Since its introduction in 2008, distributed ledger technology emerged from its use in crypto-currencies and continues to disrupt numerous of technological and economic applications. Despite its potential as a trust-free, cost-efficient, and automated system, DLT is still an emergent technology and, therefore, faces a number of challenges.
