Recently the bank of Lithuania (BoL) mentioned its long-term and ambitious plans to create its blockchain platform for use beyond the financial services sector. The central bank’s blockchain-based sandbox called LBChain project has completed its third and final stage on May 26, 2020.
In a quick meeting, BoL’s blockchain project manager Anndrius Adamonis mentioned that the bank is visualizing moving beyond LB Chain to create a future “LTChain”, in short, called Lithania Chain, having non-financial applications. With this future LTChain, the bank would easily cooperate with other public institutions and looking forward to attracting start-ups from non-financial sectors that include energy, healthcare, and transportation.
