The European BlockTech Federation EBTF was founded by 13 European blockchain associations in Brussels, Belgium on 29 November 2018. It is an independent International Federation under the International Non Profit Association Belgian law. On 10 March 2019, it received the Royal Decree with the registration #WL 22/17.115 by the Belgium Secretary of Justice.
The vision of EBTF is to form one voice for its associations and provide communication channels between the industry and relevant European government and regulatory bodies to bring blockchain Web 3.0 to the front-line of the agenda and contribute towards the blockchain industry development in Europe.
EBTF will also be regarded as an official SMEs and startups industry lobby and will be registered as such with the European Commission to promote and represent blockchain / DLT related companies, initiatives and the ecosystem.
