Connecting the blockchain community in Berlin
In the last five years, Berlin has rapidly grown into one of the global blockchain hotspots due to its favorable conditions as a startup location. Within the blockchain community, Berlin is frequently labelled as the next “Blockchain Capital”. With over 100 blockchain startups based in Berlin, it has one of the most active and vibrant ecosystems worldwide. Nevertheless, the local community is still highly fragmented, which makes it difficult to coordinate activities to further promote Berlin as a global blockchain hub. Additionally, stakeholders outside of the blockchain space don’t have a single point of entry to interact with the Berlin blockchain ecosystem. BerChain was started to solve this challenge and unite the Berlin blockchain community to help promoting Berlin as the next Blockchain Capital.
Our mission is to connect and promote the Berlin blockchain community inside and outside the blockchain ecosystem to position Berlin as the global blockchain capital.
BerChain’s objectives are focused on three key pillars:
Organize events and offer services to foster interaction, knowledge exchange and networking among the local Berlin blockchain community to strengthen the local ties and enable easier collaboration.
Develop a central hub of engagement for external stakeholders (politics, investors, corporates, academia and others) to interact and get in touch with the Berlin blockchain community.
Organize events and offer services to further position Berlin as a global Blockchain Capital for startups, corporates and investors.
BerChain aims to connect the Berlin blockchain community through an invite-only Slack group (see below). We keep the quality of the Slack group on a high level by only admitting those who work professionally with blockchain as a developer, technologist or in business related to blockchain, and who have a relationship to Berlin. We filter the noise on the group and constantly monitor to ensure a high level of conversation. We do not tolerate hard sales, as this group should be about knowledge exchange. Also ICO promotion or investment speculation/advise/questions is not welcome on our platform.
We encourage in-depth technical chats on blockchain and distributed ledger technology, but are also open to those who are not that experienced but with interest in the technology and opportunities. We want to be inclusive to those working with, or genuinely interested in blockchain.
Have questions on how to do token economy, start up your blockchain company, or perhaps on how to start your in-house corporate distributed ledger project? We aim to have the experts in the group and help each other out.
While we firmly believe that cryptocurrencies are here to stay and there are amazing investment opportunities at the moment, we do not aim to be a platform to discuss investments. We are mainly focused on the technical, social and business side of blockchain as a technology.
