Smart Dubai Office
The Smart Dubai Office won an award for its blockchain initiative at the Smart Cities Expo and World Congress last week.
Dubai's government made bold statements at an event today in remarks that sought to cast the city as the global leader in the nascent market.
Dubai is planning to develop what it calls a "Court of the Blockchain" as part of a wider push for smart government operations.
The Smart Dubai initiative is on the hunt for startups to take part in a new blockchain contest, offering prizes of up to $20,000 for the winner.
