Blockchain is an open-source distributed database using state-of-the-art cryptography through a distributed ledger that enables trust among disparate individuals or third parties. Blockchain transforms the way transactions happen in the Internet age. A blockchain block is immutable, the information and details of the data contained on the blockchain are virtually impossible to change. The impact on every segment of industry and services verticals is hard to calculate.

IEEE Blockchain Initiative

The IEEE Future Directions Committee, represented by the societies of the IEEE, has approved the formation of the IEEE Blockchain Initiative (BLK) effective January 1, 2018. The BLK will be the hub for all IEEE Blockchain projects and activities. The BLK encompasses a comprehensive set of projects and activities supported by the following core subcommittees: Pre/Standards, Education, Conferences and Events, Community Development and Outreach, Publications, and Special Projects.

IEEE Indonesia Blockchain Group

The IEEE Indonesia Blockchain Group was established in December 2021, combining the request of the IEEE Blockchain Technical Community with the progressive development of Blockchain in technology and business context in Indonesia. This group involves Blockchain experts from Indonesian universities and industries, in a collaboration organised by the IEEE Indonesia Section and come related Society Chapters in Indonesia.

The information for this group could be found in this website, with the URL https://ieeeblockchain.id

Value Statement

Blockchain is a new and emerging technology family positioned on the leading edge of the technology hype curve. It is not bleeding or cutting-edge technology; nor is it fully formed, standardized, or supported by best practices. The Blockchain Technical Community is highly fragmented and badly needs what the IEEE can deliver; a stabilizing think space of seasoned professionals specifically trained and positioned to make a difference. Blockchain is by far the most forward thinking, impactful, and disruptive emerging technology family that the Future Directions Committee and the IEEE has sought to embrace.
