- Case Western Reserve University, in Cleveland, is adding a think tank to explore blockchain and other technology research interests such as the Internet of Things, and virtual and augmented reality, according to Cleveland.com.
- The Cleveland Blockchain and Digital Futures Hub will bring the private research university together with local business, government, technology and academic groups. It is part of the “Blockland” initiative, which strives to make northeast Ohio a center for research and development for the digital ledger technology.
- A permanent location, funding and administrative team have not yet been identified for the Hub, and Cleveland.com reports the group has only met in person a handful of times.
