Toward Web3:

Digital Assets, Digital Transformation

The past year has presented a multitude of challenges for organizations attempting to navigate the rapidly-evolving world of blockchain and Web3 technologies. From economic uncertainty and geopolitical instability, to market volatility and the emergence of the so-called ‘crypto-contagion,’ it can be overwhelming for organizations to stay ahead in such a complex environment. The Blockchain Research Institute (BRI) is here to help.

The Blockchain Research Institute (BRI) is the world’s largest independent think-tank for blockchain and Web3 technologies. We’ve been studying blockchain since the 2016 publication of Blockchain Revolution, co-authored by Don and Alex Tapscott, and we have conducted over 100 research projects investigating the strategic implications of blockchain and Web3 on business, government, and society. Today, the Institute is one of the most recognizable organizations stewarding blockchain education and thought leadership for government and enterprise members.

Program Overview

Web3 is a collection of cutting-edge technologies that, when combined, have the potential to change the way we interact with each other and conduct business. Web3 aims to replace today’s centralized systems with decentralized networks that are more open, transparent, and fair for everyone. It also allows for greater control and privacy over personal data, and provides opportunities for creators and developers to monetize their contributions. Enabled by blockchain, the features of Web3 includes some powerful primitives—such as self-sovereign identity, digital assets, smart contracts, and distributed governance—that will drive the next era of internet, making it more efficient and secure.

Now and through 2023, the BRI is pleased to offer its latest program, Toward Web3: Digital Assets, Digital Transformation. This program is designed to assist our Members in understanding the potential uses and benefits of Web3 technologies, and to provide guidance on how to successfully integrate blockchain into their operations. The program offers a range of deliverables across five main categories: community, research, education, action, and influence. Additionally, the new program offers Members opportunities for customization, including the option to request custom research, custom courses, and bespoke advisory services, allowing for greater flexibility in meeting their unique needs.


Web3 is a collection of technologies—including blockchain, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), and metaverse—that will provide a basis for new classes of digital services. It features increased instrumentation and automation. It will incorporate artificially intelligent predictions into many, if not most, systems. It will add a spatial dimension through augmented and virtual realities. Most importantly, it will be a transition of business and social life to an Internet of value.


There are multiple ways we work with member companies including over-the-horizon blockchain research and use cases, building c-suite awareness, company-wide education, custom research projects, and marketplace influence. Things are moving fast, and BRI is uniquely positioned to help you tackle the urgent need for insights, education, and analysis. At BRI, we work to inspire private- and public-sector leaders to be the catalysts of the blockchain revolution.
