Blockchain Governance Initiative Network (BGIN) provides an open and neutral sphere for all stakeholders to deepen common understanding and to collaborate to address issues they face in order to attain sustainable development of the blockchain community. It is a unique global network of leading thinkers from industry and academia in the field of blockchain.

The Blockchain Governance Initiative Network (BGIN) takes a leading role to design healthy governance where stakeholders develop a common understanding, enhance dialogue, work together and make a real positive impact on the ecosphere and society at large. To serve the above purpose, BGIN tentatively aims at

  1. Creating an open, global and neutral platform for multi-stakeholder dialogue
  2. Developing a common language and understanding among stakeholders with diverse perspectives
  3. Building academic anchors through continuous provision of trustable documents and codes based on an open source-style approach

The blockchain research cluster at the University of British Columbia will host block #7 of the Blockchain Governance Initiative Network. BGIN #7 continues to bring voice to individuals focused on governance for digital economic networks. The Block #7 Program Committee is curating the meeting themes and speaker list.

While the program is hybrid, we strongly suggest people to participate in the program onsite, as there will be unique networking opportunities.

Who should attend?

Developers, Regulators, Business entities, Consumers, Civil society, Academia, and anyone interested in blockchain ecosystems!
