Fellows of Blockchain Australia

Inaugural Fellows at the Parliamentary Friends of Blockchain Reception

Under the Blockchain Australia Constitution, the Board may give recognition to talented and passionate individuals in the Australian blockchain community who have “demonstrated a record of achievement in promoting the responsible adoption of blockchain technology by industry and governments across Australia as a means to drive innovation across all sectors of the economy.”

In November 2018, the ADCA Board nominated 31 individuals as the inaugural Fellows of ADCA. Their achievements span a diverse range of contributions including technological innovation, business entrepreneurs, regulatory and policy leadership as well as innovation in the corporate sector. Many of the inaugural Fellows of ADCA received official recognition of their appointment during the Industry Reception of the Parliamentary Friends of Blockchain at Parliament House in Canberra on Monday, December 3rd.

Following the merger of ADCA and Blockchain Australia in July 2019, the Fellows of ADCA will be renamed the Fellows of Blockchain Australia.

The Fellows of Blockchain Australia are eligible for election to the Blockchain Australia Board and collectively elect two members of the Board.
