Blockchainhub Brussels is a think-tank and information platform connecting people around Blockchain in Belgium.
Blockchainhub Brussels is an independent non profit node of the global Blockchainhub network. Our mission articulates around 4 axis:
Spread the idea of decentralised technologies like blockchain and other technologies that build on top and around blockchain. Empower a more efficient & transparent p2p-economy and p2p-society.
Centralize and advertise events related to Blockchain on the Belgian territory.
Funnel and spread quality information linked to people or corporations based in Belgium.
Increase the understanding of distributed ledger technologies by informing, clarifying and raising awareness. Make it accessible to the general public.
Be an interdisciplinary think-tank and foster a breeding ground for game changing startups.
Traditional command & control top down management styles do not work well in a decentralized world. We therefore research & apply decentralized governance structures & tools in our Network of Hubs (i.e. Holacracy).
The quality of our team and the information we spread are our first concern. We are non-profit.
What is Blockchain?
If the internet we use today is the internet of information, blockchain is the internet of value that has the potential to fundamentally transform business, economy & society as we know it. Blockchain, the technology behind bitcoin, is considered by many to be the next big thing. A game changer that allows us to decentralise trust, creating the basis for a peer-to-peer economy, powered by auto enforceable smart contracts.
Transactions on the blockchain through these smart contracts are in many cases faster & cheaper and more secure than transactions that classically run through neural central authorities. These Smart Contracts are an integral part of well as dApps (Decentralized Applications) and DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations).
The Decentralized Web
Together with other decentralized protocols like IPFS & SWARM (decentralized file storage), Whisper (Decentralized Messaging), Social Linked Data and many more, Blockchain is contributing to the next generation of the internet, the decentralized web, or web 3.0.
