The UK's newly opened FinTech accelerator is seeking additional ways to explore blockchain tech.
It's here that the Bank of England is seeking to study concepts such as distributed ledger-based digital currency, but the organization is already looking to move beyond its currently disclosed projects.
The subject, detailed in an ultimately cancelled speech by Bank of England governor Mark Carney, has since been taken up in the British legislature (though no direct legislative effort has been sought to date).
Earlier this month, a committee of the UK House of Lords heard from a number of panelists on the technology as part of its fact-finding effort into the technology.
