B.C. experimenting with ‘blockchain’

Victoria Lemieux, who leads a blockchain research and education cluster at UBC, was interviewed for a Times Colonist story on B.C.’s experiment with blockchain, the technology behind the digital currency Bitcoin.

She added that it could potentially transform financial institutions and how governments work.
