Focus areas

The Swiss Blockchain Federation deals with the current developments and trends in blockchain technology. Blockchain technology promises broad fields of application in all areas of our economy and society. With a high degree of maturity, Blockchain not only enables efficiency gains and new business models but also, for example, solutions for combating climate change, protecting privacy, secure digital identity or for transparent processing in the healthcare industry. 

In order to make blockchain technology accessible to a wide audience, clear framework conditions, standards and guidance are currently needed. The Swiss Blockchain Federation promotes this work primarily through the activities of the Expert Council. 

The Expert Council focuses on the following topics: 

  • Financial Management
  • Industry/Value chain
  • Public sector
  • Education 
  • Law and regulation
  • Technology and security 

Members of the Swiss Blockchain Federation have founded various working groups. The working groups are led by a chairman, operate in a decentralised manner and are supervised by a member of the Expert Council. The working groups work in different compositions on topics with defined objectives.  

The working groups are composed of representatives of the blockchain industry, experts from the “traditional” industry, and academia. This enables interdisciplinary discourse and comprehensive problem-solving. 

The following working groups of the Expert Council are currently active: 

Regulation
