"We are pleased to announce the release of our Blockchain White Paper. The white paper began as an internal effort to assist NARA staff in learning more about the technology and how agencies are using it. While it includes a very high-level overview of the technical aspects of blockchain, it is useful to records managers because it explores the various implications for Federal electronic records management programs. 

The white paper focuses on fundamental records management concerns such as the existence of records on a Blockchain, records authenticity and integrity, records scheduling, and records transfer and accessioning to NARA."
