Blockchain Science Consortium ‘Bloxberg' Will Now Include National University of Colombia

Science Consortium Will Now Include National University of Colombia

Blockchain initiative Bloxberg includes 12 separate organizations from 10 different countries, run by the Max Plank Society. Colombia will now be included in the consortium by way of their national university. Official announcements were made on April 15th by the co-director of the research group Maurico Tovar Gutierrez.

The National University of Colombia’s official joining of the scient consortium is a benchmark since no other Latin American institution is currently enrolled. According to Bloxberg, goals for the new initiative are for creating a network that:

“broadens the scientific landscape of regionally and nationally governed blockchain networks to become the first truly globally maintained decentralized network by scientists for science.”

Other purposes for installing the group are to provide benefits from the new platform, which include protecting the rights of intellectual property, authenticating data, research, P2P reviews and publishing improvements.

A grant has been given to the Colombian researchers and Yale University for successfully compiling a new smart contract language. The new language is used on the Ethereum’s Virtual Machine and the grant will be used to support the implementation of it into the current Ethereum 2.0 layers in use.

Other members of the consortium include Carnegie Mellon, UCL, ETH Library at ETH Zürich, Georgia Tech, IT University of Copenhagen, University of Belgrade, University of Johannesburg, University of Kassel, University of Nicosia, and University of Sarajevo.

Gutierrez also said:

“The interesting thing about blockchain for example for intellectual property issues, is that when someone registers something there, neither that person nor another person can eliminate it, then it becomes a certificate of whoever did something for the first time. This is another case of striking use, to identify or record some academic production and demonstrate authorship.
