Non-Profit Advocacy Group Blockchain Association of Ireland Launches

The Blockchain Association of Ireland has been formed in order to establish Ireland as a Global hub for innovation in the areas of digital-currency, smart-contracts, fintech, insurtech, regtech and other non-commercial applications of Blockchain.

According to the organisation director Reuben Godfrey’s Linkedin profile, they hope to foster and co-ordinate Ireland’s depth of talent, drive and enthusiasm to position it as a dominant force on the world stage in terms of Blockchain.

We will do this by engaging with regulators, policymakers, educators, for and not for profit organisations and technology entrepreneurs through direct communication to guide the public dialogue about Blockchain technology.

Among other activities, the association will be responsible to:

  • promote Blockchain technologies, distributed ledgers & digital currencies
  • represent its members in the media, education, research, business and government,
  • organize events, initiatives and lobbying operations,
  • support and develop Blockchain projects initiated by other other organisations,
  • connect start-ups, investors and large companies,
  • share with its members, the corporate world, and the public information and knowledge about the national Blockchain ecosystem,
  • represent Ireland and its Blockchain ecosystem with Blockchain associations in other countries and international bodies.

Membership is open to all whom have an interest to learn more and contribute to the evolution of Blockchain and Ireland’s leading place as a hub for innovation.

The Association will publicly launch on 14th December 2016 and is organising a Blockchain conference – DEEPGREEN 2017 – in Dublin, Ireland in April 2017.

The group has a Twitter account here.
