CompTIA Forms Blockchain Technology Interest Group

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. (March 17, 2021) — CompTIA, the nonprofit association for the global technology industry and workforce, today announced the creation of a new technology interest group (TIG) on blockchain.


Formation of the CompTIA Blockchain TIG was revealed this week during CompTIA's annual Communities & Councils Forum (CCF) Online.


"With growing interest in the deployment of blockchain technology in business applications, the time is right for us to expand our offerings related to this emerging technology," said Nancy Hammervik, executive vice president of industry relations and CEO of the CompTIA Tech Careers Academy.


CompTIA's Blockchain TIG is a community for individuals interested in blockchain technology and solutions and will include business cases for technology solution providers. Participants have access to a dedicated online forum where they can share ideas, join discussions, discover relevant resources, and network with peers in the industry.


The new group builds on CompTIA's growing leadership in blockchain. The association's Blockchain Advisory Council, comprised of market thought leaders and technology innovators, identifies how technology companies and their customers can leverage blockchain technology in their businesses. The council has produced a number of resources for the blockchain market, including:


  • 7 Myths About Blockchain – Busted, an examination of seven popular myths about the technology and the truth behind each one.
  • Pivot from a Struggling Industry to New Opportunities: A Blockchain Use Case, which details how a blockchain application developer adapted an existing solution to provide help for health care workers on the COVID-19 frontlines.
  • Blockchain Terminology : A Glossary for Beginners, a comprehensive list of terms that blockchain beginners need to know.
  • Blockchain Decision Tree, a guide to help determine when to use blockchain, or not.


With the addition of the Blockchain TIG, CompTIA now has four such groups, with others focused on Advancing Women in Technology, Artificial Intelligence and Drones. These interest groups are free to join. Visit for more information.
