Tuesday 20th February, our members introduced the new, non-profit association Blockchain Society (BCS). The introductory event features a description of the BCS initiative and activities as well as a Blockchain introduction for newcomers. Today we’re releasing our first post on this blog, aimed at sharing our goals and introducing the next steps of the association.
BCS and BEN
Continuing on the path of building a global interconnected students community in Switzerland, we’re presenting BCS as the “BEN Switzerland” Chapter. The Blockchain Education Network (BEN) is made up of students and alumni across the world who are creating bitcoin and blockchain clubs on their academic campuses. By exploring this socioeconomic experiment within the safety of their peers, students build new expectations and innovations. In aggregate, the combined effort of all these BEN clubs creates a rich web of interconnected blockchain hubs across the world. Now, BCS is part of it.
