Working Groups

At the core of Blockchain Australia’s value to both its members and the broader community is the expertise of those who are working to build web3. 

Those experts serve to inform others and drive the policy and regulatory agenda. They do so by understanding the implications involved in the development of blockchain technology.

They apply that knowledge through the communication of that information across a variety of working groups that address and impact the most critical and topical challenges facing the industry. Developing all facets of blockchain in Australia.

Scam Alerts

Unfortunately scams and scammers exist in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. 

They prey on people’s insecurities, lack of knowledge and are opportunistic. The best defence to these fake opportunities is to be aware of the tactics used to deceive.
