We aim to foster and coordinate Ireland’s depth of talent, drive and enthusiasm to position it as a dominant force on the world stage. 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
  • organise 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
