What a Year this has been!

We are tremendously proud of the BBA's continued success and thankful to the whole Team BBA for their remarkable contributions to the association and the DLT ecosystem.

From advising central banks on digital assets to putting forward UK Parliamentary Bills on Blockchain, this year-in-review contains a summary of milestones, successes, and highlights, that would not have been possible without the help of our advisors, fellows, members, partners, and well-wishers all around the world. We are pleased to have supported and promoted the work of so many outstanding people, organisations, and networks, as evidenced by the examples provided in this review.

I wish you a happy and prosperous New Year, and see you all in Manchester on 18 March at the ISC2023 5th Blockchain International Scientific Conference.

Until next time,
 
Professor Dr Naseem Naqvi FBBA
