About Us

The Oxford Blockchain Society was founded by students in 2016.

In 2017, our mission was refined towards fostering Oxford's blockchain ecosystem by maintaining a distributed network of students, academics, and industry actors.

We formed the Oxford Blockchain Network as a platform for bridging ecosystem silos, promoting emergent collaboration and centralising access to resources.

Our Team Yep, we rock !
