Blockchain Council

Mission Statement

To raise an understanding of this misunderstood technology, demonstrating its potential for business and informing the wider blockchain debate.


Blockchain has the potential to change the world – and not simply in terms of the cryptocurrencies where it began. The Blockchain Council is working to raise awareness of this misunderstood technology. We aim to demonstrate its potential for business – as an enabler of cost-effective, traceable supply chains; as an eradicator of accounting errors – even as a solution to electoral fraud.
