We’re excited to announce that the Blockchain Association has unanimously voted in favor of admitting the HBAR Foundation as a member, placing us at the forefront of blockchain and cryptoasset public policy in the US. 

The Blockchain Association is a team of industry leaders educating American lawmakers and advocating for more transparent policymaking in our industry. This team has developed an extensive network of connections across the federal government, including within Congress, the White House, and regulators - enabling Blockchain Association members to share the “who” and the “why” behind policy developments. 

“We are pleased to welcome the HBAR Foundation as our newest member. The HBAR Foundation is committed to helping entrepreneurs and creators bring their ideas to market with speed and scale. The work of the HBAR Foundation demonstrates the ability of emerging technologies to help coordinate and incentivize the development of groundbreaking ideas and businesses through innovative grant-making processes." — Kristin Smith, Executive Director of the Blockchain Association

Members of the Blockchain Association consist of industry leaders who share a commitment to responsibly building, investing in, and advocating for blockchain networks fueled by cryptocurrencies.

As a member of the Blockchain Association, the HBAR Foundation will be engaging in a multi-chain community of industry leaders with the shared focus of advancing beneficial policies to the DLT and crypto space as a whole.

Our admission to the association places us alongside members such as Uniswap, Grayscale, BlockFi, AAVE, Kraken amongst many others. We greatly look forward to building a relationship with all participating members.
