BLOCKCHAIN DISCUSSION PAPER

In view of the irrefutably growing impact of blockchain technology, and given that there are potential data protection risks, it is imperative that the interaction between blockchain and data protection are considered.

This discussion paper outlines key issues regarding the relationship between blockchain and the GDPR as understood by the Information Commissioner (the “Commissioner”). It reflects on the European Union’s general acceptance of this new technology, whilst highlighting both the potential risks as well as the opportunities that blockchain technology presents in relation to data protection.

The main purpose of this paper is to facilitate discussion and engagement with stakeholders in order to collaborate, examine and address data protection issues within blockchain.
