“The signing of two protocols with international entities is important for the Alliance through the networks of cooperation and knowledge that are created. With this, we bring the experiences evidenced in other realities to Portugal,” said Rui Serapicos, Ambassador of the Portuguese Blockchain Alliance, in a statement.

“Israel is one of the most technologically advanced countries and the many cases of technology companies that are acquired by global giants are notorious. Likewise, we recognize the technological progress of the Nordic region and we are proud to sign these memorandums with the two organizations,” he added.

The goal of the Portuguese Blockchain Alliance is to develop an ecosystem that brings together companies, academia, and Portuguese governmental entities in order to endow the business system with solid knowledge about Blockchain.

Six challenges were set forth by the Alliance:

  • Abreu Advogados Smart Contract Challenge

Students, startups, and enterprises also have the opportunity to participate in the proposed Challenges, which seek to respond to the main needs of various sectors.
