International governance organizations are again showing curiosity around blockchain.
The latest example is the United Nations, which teamed up with the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) and the Government Blockchain Association (GBA) to create a blockchain standards group.
The Dynamic Coalition on Blockchain Assurance and Standardization was approved by the IGF Secretariat on June 1, 2023, according to GBA executive director Gerard Daché.
Daché and Dino Cataldo Dell’Accio, the chief information officer for the UN’s Joint Staff Pension Fund, will lead the coalition.

Each group their own schedule, which means there isn’t yet clarity on when industry participants can expect guidelines.
