Case Western Reserve University is launching a Cleveland Blockchain and Digital Futures Hub. The think tank will not only address blockchain technology, but also build on research in other areas, such as the Internet of Things and virtual reality.
The hub will bring together business, academic institutions, government and tech accelerators across the northeast Ohio region for research and practical applications.
The Internet of Things refers to the network of smart devices and how data is shared between them. This technology, along with other collaborative initiatives, aims to make northeast Ohio a growing center for blockchain technology in the Midwest.
