BC is gaining a global positive reputation for tokenized assets and blockchain technologies. We can become the “Blockchain (D)Center” of the World by creating the pre-conditions for a healthy distributed digital marketplace.

The Challenge: Establishing BC as a Global Emerging Tech Hub

It is a priority for the BC Government to establish BC as a global hub for emerging technologies.

The Opportunity: Realizing the Potential of Blockchain in BC

It is estimated that up to 10% of global GDP will be stored using blockchain technology.

Our Goal – Building the BC Blockchain Ecosystem

Let’s get together and co-create the token economy, and blockchain technology.

Why get involved?

Educate. Spotlight. Co-Create.

The BC Blockchain Forum is a private/public sector initiated by DigitalFutures to explore the benefits of blockchain technologies and the associated creation of digital assets promoting digital transformation and the digital economy in British Columbia, and Canada-wide.

We provide those who are just learning about blockchain or are already deeply immersed in, with a look at how innovative ideas are developed and executed. We also provide detailed information about what blockchain is, its evolution and its potential to change the future. We support the growth of the digital economy through advocacy, collaboration and partnerships with entrepreneurs, startups, investors, corporates, educational institutions, service providers, and government bodies.

Bitcoin & Blockchain and Cryptographic technologies are fuelling one of the fastest growing industries in the world. To kick off our series of events we explored why blockchain technology – a truly open, distributed, global platform – will fundamentally change what we can achieve online, how we do it, and who can participate.

We were delighted to host our special guests Thomas Linder (MME) and Lukas Sieber (Greater Zurich economic agency) from Switzerland at our event. They addressed how Switzerland has become a friendly business and regulatory landscape that is arguably the leading country hosting blockchain ventures and TGEs (including Ethereum, a venture that originated in Canada).
