BlockStand is directly supporting the increased participation of European experts in Blockchain and DLT (Distributed Ledger Technologies) standardisation activities.

Building upon their efforts, the project is promoting the European leadership in global blockchain standardisation, ensuring that internationally used blockchain standards reflect European values and needs.

In this page, you can browse through the appointed standardisation experts, explore their profiles and learn more about their valuable contributions to the blockchain and DLT standardisation.

For more information on how to become a BlockStand expert and submitting your proposal for paid activities, please consult the dedicated page.
