The creation of a Blockchain Center of Excellence is a natural extension of the Walton College’s and the U of A’s established expertise in information systems research and data analytics.

What is Blockchain?

Blockchain applications use technology to replace the functions traditionally performed by institutions, such as verifying identities, making sure accounts are funded before transferring value and attesting to the authenticity of an asset, giving blockchain the potential to make business processes more trustworthy, efficient and secure.
