The European Union Blockchain Observatory & Forum has set as one of its objectives the analysis of and reporting on a wide range of important blockchain themes, driven by the priorities of the European Commission and based on input from its Working Groups and other stakeholders. As part of this it will publish a series of thematic reports on selected blockchain-related topics.

The input of a number of different stakeholders and sources is considered for each report. For this paper, these include:
