ABOUT US

DIGITAL ASSETS:
DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

Blockchain is the foundation for the second era of the internet – an internet of value, where anything of value, including money, our identities, cultural assets like music and art, and even a vote can become a digital asset, managed, transacted, moved and stored securely peer to peer.

The Blockchain Research Institute (BRI) is an independent, global think tank, dedicated to exploring and sharing knowledge about the strategic implications of blockchain on business, government, and society. Co‑founded by Don and Alex Tapscott, BRI is funded by a consortium of international corporations and government agencies.

The current BRI program – Digital Assets: Digital Transformation – introduces over-the-horizon research, events, and on-line courses, designed to help our members not just navigate the blockchain but lead the digital transformation.
