British oil company BP is ready to consider a partnership with blockchain startups that are preparing to conduct ICO, and conducted internal testing of the application tokens. This was stated by the CTO of the organization of BP, working in digital innovation, Julian gray (Julian Gray), adding that non-financial institutions, in his view, more open blockchain innovation than financial:
This technology went public, she certainly is developing in a certain direction? and at some point we will meet with her.
According to him, BP has long been waiting for this possibility and do not consider the ICO something terrific, or “hackers”.
Recall that the experiments of BP with blockchain technology in the oil and gas, but also investing in pilot programs to study the “practical and ethical” value of technology in the energy sector became known in October 2017. And in November, BP and Shell led the creation of the blockchain platform to trade energy resources.
