Delft Blockchain Lab(DBL) is TU Delft’s initiative for research, education, and training in blockchain technology and trust in the internet.
The mission of DBL is to strengthen the scientific basis of blockchain technology, to provide education and training in blockchain technology, and to reach out to societal and industrial partners and other stakeholders in order to support the use of blockchain technology.
TU Delft is convinced that an integrated scientific perspective combined with an engineering, application-oriented, and society-oriented approach is required in order to address the complex problems of blockchain technology in a fruitful way. Such an approach can be achieved by combining the expertise in the core technology, in application areas, and in societal aspects that is present at TU Delft. The research on peer-to-peer systems and on reputation and accounting systems that has been conducted at TU Delft for more than 12 years has given TU Delft a headstart in the core technology.
