The GBBC engages regulators, business leaders and global change makers to further global adoption of blockchain technology to create equitable, secure, and functional societies.

"Our membership in GBBC helps ensure our participation in key industry working groups and events, as well as showcase our own innovative work," states Michael Coletta, Chief Strategy Officer of Fineqia. "We look forward to engagement with regulators, innovators, and companies that GBBC's wide reach brings."

The Company also stands to gain visibility and credibility by co-authoring GBBC research and reports.

The GBBC leads numerous initiatives such as the Open Learning Forum which promotes the understanding of blockchain technology and use-cases while the Post Trade Distributed Ledger Group narrows in on distributed ledger technology application and regulatory developments within financial services.
