World Blockchain Forum (WBF) was registered in New York in 2017 and its first event took place March 26-27, 2018 in London.

From the outset WBF positioned itself as the premier event at the cutting edge of global distributed ledger technology (DLT or “blockchain”), an interconnecting platform for global blockchain stakeholders, and a place where leading authorities and innovators can listen and be heard.

As the blockchain sector’s leading event, WBF is able to invite, inform, and perhaps even influence leaders in government, academia, media, and business who may still view blockchain with scepticism.
