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.
Why get involved?
Educate. Spotlight. Co-Create.
The BC Blockchain Forum is a private/public sector initiative founded by DigitalFutures to advance good business practice in blockchain technologies and the associated creation of digital assets. We believe these to be foundational to the adoption and utilization of blockchain technologies in British Columbia, and Canada-wide.
We achieve this through advocacy, education and roundtables with blockchain entrepreneurs, startups, investors, corporates, educational institutions, service providers, and government bodies.
Want to know how to engage?
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).
Thomas Linder has broad experience in advising Swiss and foreign companies in international tax matters. He is particularly specialized in leading inter-disciplinary projects in the context of acquisitions, corporate restructurings and migrations and has in-depth knowledge in cross-border transactions and tax accounting.
Lukas Sieber helps US businesses set up & grow in Switzerland’s economic and innovation center, the Greater Zurich Area (GZA).Based in New York City, he leads a team of dedicated professionals based in various locations across the US. They assure a confidential and free advisory service, assisting companies in evaluating the GZA region for their expansion and relocation projects.
