The central bank of Sweden works to find a suitable and beneficial application of blockchain technology for the central bank and for the people of Sweden.
Around the world governments and corporations are fighting to keep up with new technological breakthroughs, blockchain is just one of those technologies but it could be the most disruptive technology the global financial system has experienced since the introduction of the bank note.
From Venezuela to Latvia, financial and government institutions are rallying around this new technology in hope of harnessing its wide reaching and socially impactful potential.
In the Ekrona documentary film, we follow one such institution; the central bank of Sweden – Sveriges Riksbank, as they work to find a suitable and beneficial application of blockchain technology for the central bank and for the people of Sweden.
Established by Dutch-Latvian Johan Palmstruch in 1668, Sveriges Riksbank is often considered by many as the world’s oldest central bank. It is this legacy back story that makes even the consideration of an Ekrona by the Riksbank highly anticipated by many both familiar with Blockchain technology and those that use the Swedish krona every day.
