Mission Statement of Association

The Blockchain Research Institute (BRI) is an independent, global think-tank, co-founded by Don and Alex Tapscott. We bring together the world’s top global researchers to undertake ground-breaking research on blockchain technology. Funded by a membership consisting of international corporations and government agencies, our multi-million-dollar research program features 80+ projects documenting the strategic implications of blockchain on business, government and society. From market opportunities to best practices and implementation challenges, we’re dedicated to inspire and prepare private- and public-sector leaders to be the catalysts of the blockchain transformation.
