Holland’s central bank is preparing to open a campus dedicated to teaching others about blockchain.
In early September of this year, De Nederlandsche Bank is expected to open a campus where banks and financial institutions can work together "under one roof" to learn more about the distributed ledger technology that underlies bitcoin, according to a local report yesterday in Holland’s de Volkskrant.
Holland’s fintech ambassador Willem Vermeend told the publication:
Last month, De Nederlandsche Bank’s head of market infrastructures policy department, Ron Berndsen, described in detail the bank’s experiments with bitcoin and hinted at future experiments pertaining to digital assets and more.
