Blockchain is booming! But does blockchain have the potential to renew development cooperation? Which problems can be tackled using blockchain technology? And how do you implement the technique? The Spindle is exploring the possibilities of this technique together with PwC Blockchain Experience Lab, Humanity X, Yvo Hunink and several other parties. If you’re interested and want to learn more about Blockchain or want to know which organisations are working with this technology, please contact Annewies.

On this page you can find past and upcoming events and our publication about the technique of Blockchain in the development sector.
