(businesspress24) - WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 09/27/16 -- The Chamber of Digital Commerce and technology incubator 1776 have partnered to launch the DC Blockchain Center to serve as Washington, DC''s entrepreneurial resource for technology providers and governments investing and innovating in blockchain-based technologies.

The DC Blockchain Center at 1776 is the first blockchain incubator in Washington, DC. It''s focused on helping regulators and government agencies, including state, federal and international, understand the potential benefits of blockchain technology and public sector use cases, and to provide a forum for the public and private sectors to collaborate.

"We''re thrilled to welcome the DC Blockchain Center and its community of innovators to 1776. It''s uniquely positioned to connect the dots for government agencies and drive massive scale success through our connections, resources and mentoring programs."
