Participation to Blockchain and DLT Standardisation

As you can see in the image below, I (Jm, founder of Reputaction, identifiable thanks to the black hat ;-) have participated as expert member to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) initiative for standardisation of blockchain and more generally Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT). It is interesting to see that other members come from major Chinese companies such as Tencent and Huawei. A smaller size but more well-known Chinese company in the field of DLT was also present, namely, Onchain, which has strong relationships with NEO that is the blockchain chosen and used by Reputaction. Of course being organized by the ITU, a good number of telecom operators have joined the initiative such as Swisscom, Rostelecom, Türk Telekom…

We have worked on the technology reference framework and DLT evaluation criteria. The goal is to not only cover blockchains but also other DLTs such as Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG), e.g., Fantom or Hashgraph Hedera. I am in contact with both Fantom and Hashgraph and they might join the initiative. Anyway, trustworthy independent evaluation is important, e.g., especially, when projects announce hundreds of thousands of transactions per second, still with high attack-resistance and without high energy consumption. If you’re part of a project willing to join that DLT standardisation initiative, contact me on LinkedIn and I may help you.
