The Blockchain Institute was founded to educate the public and promote the adoption, development, and use of blockchain technology. Blockchains help computers maintain large networks without centralized points of failure, and they're being used to build a new internet.
Our headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, USA (opening Fall 2018) will offer a forum for education and collaboration in the midwestern US.
In a world where the internet connects us, everyone counts. The key to adoption is getting the right tools into the hands of the right people to start the trend.
We can start using a more secure alternative today, and you could be leading the way.
Radically re-thinking how we share information isn't going to be easy. That's why we're working with local educators to sponsor initiatives and provide the resources that they need.
To develop a new culture around security and privacy online, we need to include everyone.
It's not easy to produce new technology. We're building software tools and simple guides to make it easier for everyone to participate.
We're here to help!
In a public blockchain, all interactions are common knowledge. Auditing and accountability of governments and nonprofits are one area where this could make a big difference.
It can be hard to maintain control of your data online. Blockchain systems have the potential to make digital ownership and identity more secure.
When data is tracked communally, it makes it much more difficult to rewrite the story and cover up wrongdoing.
All you need is an internet connection. We're teaching the rest for free.
Everything else is up to you.
There are a lot of drawbacks to having just a few big companies run the internet. Blockchain has the potential to democratize the way we build systems online.
It can be hard to work together online, but in a trustless system all we have to do is follow the rules. The network ensures everyone plays fairly.
