We recognised the BRI as the definitive think tank for blockchain research and we are very excited to be part of this global community of pioneers who is leading the blockchain revolution and empowering a decentralised digital economy ” stated, Moerieda Mackay, Founder and CEO – Stride
“For the Telos Foundation, joining BRI was a natural extension of our mission to support purpose-driven blockchain projects. At this early stage of user adoption of distributed-ledger tech, we think it’s vital to share information with peers, and to learn from them whenever possible, so we can build a sustainable future together. BRI is clearly a great venue to do that ” added, Suvi Rinkinen, CEO – The Telos Foundation
