The first ever Policy Makers Workshop on the regulation of crypto currencies and the Blockchain in Uganda took place on the 4th and the 5th July 2018 at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Kampala. The aim of the workshop was to consider proposals for public consultations that drew on multi-sectoral approaches to policy making. A new interdisciplinary Working Group was set up to write a research brief that could form the basis on which the proposed Task Force on the Blockchain could develop a public facing policy consultation document on the regulation of distributed ledger technologies in Uganda.
