Toronto, CANADA; July 6, 2021 – The Blockchain Research Institute (BRI), the world’s largest independent blockchain think-tank, and BOSAGORA, a leading blockchain development project, are excited to announce the launch of Blockchain Research Institute Korea (BRIK).

The partnership will establish BRIK as the preeminent Korean blockchain think-tank, building on the work of the BRI and leveraging BOSAGORA’s deep network in Korea and abroad. The BRIK will bring together Korea’s top industry leaders, academics, policymakers, entrepreneurs, and researchers to undertake ground-breaking research on blockchain technology, bridging the gap between the technological functionality of blockchain and the real market need.

Korea is one of the most wired countries, and also has the most crypto-friendly population among other countries,” said Inhwan Kim, President of BOSAGORA Foundation. By establishing BRI Korea, we believe we can bring good research work to share with all, as well as contribute to the development of the blockchain ecosystem in Korea.”

The BRIK will provide member organizations with research on the strategic opportunities, challenges, and implications of blockchain technology in business, government, and society. In addition, the BRI and BRIK will provide a range of educational deliverables in the form of webinars, books, conferences, and an online course, a collaboration of the BRI with INSEAD, Europe’s top-ranked business school, and Coursera, the largest platform for online education.

“As a global leader, the Blockchain Research Institute believes that the best way to steward the blockchain revolution is to collaborate with leading regional partners who share our vision and ambition,” said Don Tapscott, Executive Chairman at the Blockchain Research Institute. “For us, BOSAGORA is the ideal partner to lead the blockchain transformation of Korea, starting with the launch of BRI Korea.”

The BRIK will also take an active role in coordinating sustainable development and innovation across the Korean blockchain ecosystem. The BRIK will leverage its global network both within the blockchain space and across traditional industries to showcase the transformative potential of blockchain technology, further working with their partners to model and establish sustainable development goals.
