Education For Everyone

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!

Why blockchain?

This technology, originally conceived to support the Bitcoin network, allows computers to cooperate without a central authority.


The Blockchain Institute will be opening our flagship location in Chicago in the fall of 2018, where we will host a wide range of edcuational events and services to support the growth of decentralized projects in Chicago.
