The European Parliament passed a vote on EU’s Digital Decade policy program, which includes investing in a cross-border blockchain infrastructure as part of its goals for 2030. The plenary meeting vote passed by 529 to 22 on Thursday, with 25 abstentions.
The policy file sets ambitions for the European Union to achieve digitization goals for 2030. It outlines large-scale, so-called "multi-country projects" to achieve the targets covering topics such as building common data infrastructure, beefing up on high-performance computing, rolling out 5G internet corridors and investing in blockchain and Web3 solutions.
Existing European blockchain initiatives may receive more support to build blockchain-based public services.
