Blockchain Ireland, a leading source of information on the Irish blockchain ecosystem, was launched last month by the Irish Blockchain Expert Group (IBEG), led by IDA Ireland.
The online platform will serve as the go-to source of information on the Irish blockchain ecosystem, assisting the promotion of Ireland as a blockchain centre of excellence.
IBEG, the group responsible for Blockchain Ireland, is an IDA Ireland-led forum established as a vehicle to promote and enhance the blockchain industry in Ireland. The association includes IDA Ireland, members of blockchain businesses and projects in Ireland, representatives from a number of academic institutions, as well as participants of the wider Irish blockchain community. Further input is also provided by Enterprise Ireland and the Department of Finance. IBEG, through Blockchain Ireland, will endeavor to promote national blockchain education and create awareness of industry developments internationally.
Blockchain Ireland will serve to better connect the public and the Irish blockchain sector. The platform will provide information on setting up a business in Ireland, available services and support for blockchain projects, upcoming blockchain events within the country, as well as an overview of the key domestic and international stakeholders within the blockchain ecosystem. The platform will also highlight the strengths of the Irish technology sector and business environment to promote the country as an ideal location for blockchain-enabled business.
