AIEF Call for Researchers: Blockchain Technology

The Foundation is looking for a researcher to work on a freelance basis on a research project on the topic of Blockchain Technology.

The research should address, at a minimum, the following questions:

  • Because blockchain executes a checksum at various distribution points, where is the actual record?
  • What retention concerns are raised here? (Keeping as an active record, an archived record and e-discovery?)
  • How is destruction defined and executed?
  • Who owns the record?
  • Are there defined lifecycles?
  • What are current standards and best practices? Do they differ by industry?

Additional information on the research project can be found on our web site:

A liaison from the Foundation will be assigned to the project and will be a resource to the researcher.

Funding: $5,000.00 (USD), paid in three installments

Contract Term: 8 months from date of execution of contract.

Copyright: Copyright will be retained by the Foundation.

Deadline for Applications: June 1, 2018.
