The Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) announced a partnership with think tank organization the Coalition of Automated Legal Applications (COALA) to run blockchain workshops in Sydney.

The Sydney Blockchain Workshops will bring together regulators, policy makers and technologists to better understand the upcoming opportunities and challenges of blockchain tech, as well as their impact on the current social, economic and political order.

“The conference provides both entry-level education and in-depth discussions about the huge potential of distributed ledgers and the resulting economic, commercial, legal and social policy questions,” said CBA group executive and CIO David Whiteing.

Alongside CBA, another corporate partner for the workshops is Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

The Commonwealth Bank of Australia is an Australian multinational bank with businesses across New Zealand, Fiji, Asia, USA and the UK.
