Blockmatics

Our mission

Help individuals and organizations leverage the power of blockchain technology through education, research and professional training.

Our story

Born in Brooklyn out of a meetup, we began by hosting informal workshops and presentations on blockchain technology but soon could not satisfy the growing demand for more comprehensive training. The need was clear, so Blockmatics was founded, holding our first full-day course on November 18th 2016.

Since then, we have developed and delivered courses on business, development, and law, held workshops and panels, and provided custom in-house training and consulting services to corporations, law firms and startups. From our early meetup members, to our most recent corporate clients, we appreciate your business and support and we promise to continue to create and deliver professional blockchain training and project guidance.
