The Korean Internet Security Agency continues its program this year to fund exploratory uses of blockchain technology. This year, the funding on offer totals $9M. Both public and private-sector entities can apply for funding. This is at least the second year of this program. The projects are developing interesting ways to improve services, whether provided by government or private sector companies. 

This model is intriguing to me because of both the willingness to invest in innovation and exploration, as well as the public/private cooperation required. Are you seeing anything similar to this sort of program in the U.S.? How do you think we're doing at trying to introduce similar innovation?
