The future of distributed ledger technology is clear


Distributed Ledger Foundation

Incubated through the Open Identity Exchange, the Distributed Ledger Foundation (DLF) is a technology agnostic, non-profit organization composed of business, academic, and legal thought leaders. The foundation is dedicated to establishing the highest standards of trust and governance for distributed ledger technology (DLT). The DLF and its members work together to jointly fund and participate in research and education programs and project initiatives.



The Distributed Ledger Foundation (DLF) will be singularly focused on being a transparent, globally representative body dedicated to fostering trust in an increasingly fragmented and untrustworthy industry.

The vision of the DLF is to be the trusted, global leader for the promotion of transparency around the control of decentralized networks.



Be the global center of excellence on the application of distributed ledger technology (DLT). It achieves this by upholding the highest standards of integrity, trust, and governance of this transformative technology through education, research, policy advocacy, and legal expertise.

Provide thought-leadership, education, and support in the development of best practices and standards for ensuring the speed, security, and fairness of applications of DLT, as well as establishing the trust frameworks that will be critical to their success.

Support legislation that strengthens accountability and governance of applications of DLT, and provide proactive, public assessment of any pending legislation which may impact DLT.

Advocate for the implementation of member initiatives.
