Why the Queen Politely Acknowledges the Blockchain

The Centre for Evidence Based Blockchain put a report out in September 2020 that an “evidence based blockchain” was difficult to find. CEBB was set up by the British Blockchain Association as “the world’s most influential voice on Blockchain. Advancing evidence-based adoption of Distributed Ledger Technologies.”

It published the above mentioned report in the Journal of the British Blockchain Association as “the world’s first peer reviewed, scientific blockchain journal.” 

In the May 2020 issue, topics such as “Gender Changes Information, Blockchain and GDPR” and “Prefigurative Post-Politics and Government Led Blockchain.”  

The CEBB chair Dr. Naseem Naqvi (who is also the JBBA editor-in-chief and the British Blockchain Association’s president) has sent Her Majesty the Queen a copy of the latest issue of the JBBA. The Queen responded and Dr. Naqvi posted her response on his LinkedIn profile.

“I have been asked to thank you for sending The Queen a copy of the sixth edition of the Journal of the British Blockchain Association.

Her Majesty was interested to learn that the publication is the first open access blockchain research journal available both in print and online.

The Queen much appreciated your thoughtful gesture and, in return, has asked me to send her warm wishes to all concerned.”

The Queen’s interest in blockchain could be the result of the interest the World Economic Forum has shown in the technology as a keystone emerging technology in “The Great Reset,” which represents a remaking of the global economy towards so-called “stakeholder capitalism” (which is not really capitalism). Major corporations, such as IBM and Microsoft, have embarked upon blockchain projects. In addition, the WEF has highlighted blockchain as one of its emerging technologies.
