Established in 2017, The British Blockchain Association (BBA) is the most influential voice in the blockchain industry. It is a not-for-profit organisation that promotes evidence-based adoption of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) across the public and private sectors. Our advisory board is drawn from the worlds of Blockchain, Academia, Information Technology, Computer Science, regulators and policymakers in the field of distributed ledger technologies. BBA is a close-knit network of experts and organisations connecting policymakers, academics, blockchain engineers, venture capitalists and visionaries. We are working in collaboration with the United Nations, UK Department for International Trade, The BBC, British Embassies, Universities, UK All Party Parliamentary Group on Blockchain, and several enterprise blockchain organisations including IBM, Ripple, R3, Microsoft, INATBA and Enterprise Ethereum Alliance.


BBA is an advocate for both industry and education. It is home to the Journal of the British Blockchain Association (JBBA), world's first peer-reviewed research journal on Blockchain and DLT ecosystems that is available both inprint and online. JBBA Editorial Board spans 56 countries including 11 US states.

BBA SF provide pastoral support, professional networking and broader educational opportunities.

BBA is also home to the Centre for Evidence Based Blockchain (CEBB), the world's first global initiative advancing evidence-based blockchain. CEBB is a neutral, decentralised, global initiative by the world's leading research universities and academic institutions advising policymakers, governments and BBA member organisations.


BBA Student Forum (BBA SF) is the Student wing of the BBA and is responsible for the voice of Blockchain within Academia. It is one of the largest networks of blockchain researchers and students in the world, with Chapter Leads at MIT and Universities of Edinburgh, Manchester, London, Liverpool, Essex and Queensland Australia, to name a few.
