Floridians,Florida Blockchain Task Force logo image

This week, I had the honor of addressing the newly appointed members of the Florida Blockchain Task Force and to share my hopes for what they could accomplish. This task force will be housed within the Department of Financial Services and they will begin the vital work of understanding this technology and how it can benefit our state. It’s a great time for technology in Florida, as our leaders encourage innovation, which supports our economy and increases our competitiveness.

Of the 13 members selected to be on the Blockchain Task Force, I had the pleasure of appointing three of them. Miami Mayor Francis Suarez who has more than 9 years of leadership experience working in the public sector as Mayor and long-time City Commissioner. Former State Representative and Public Service Commissioner Ronald Brisé has more than 20 years of experience in telecom, energy, utilities, government and business. Department of Financial Services Chief Information Officer Charles Ghini who brings more than 33 years of service to the State of Florida and extensive technological and leadership experience.

My office continues to support technology growth and innovation, which ultimately grows our economy and increases our competitiveness. With the establishment of this task force, Florida takes an important first step toward the future.

Sincerely,
