President's Message
Dear colleagues
Blockchain International Scientific Conference ISC2021 was held online on March 15, 2021. I was delighted to see delegates and speakers from around the globe took part in the conference. We had an excellent keynote speech from SEC's Hester Pierce, an outstanding awards ceremony, and some fantastic panel discussions on a range of topics, from enterprise blockchains to research and latest ground-breaking use cases. Many congratulations to all researchers who won the best abstract awards and my heartfelt thanks to the session chairs for adjudicating and reviewing the abstracts.

The 7th issue of the JBBA is on track for end of April. We have some cutting-edge research papers being featured in this issue and we look forward to distributing the copies to our global network.

In my keynote at the ISC, I talked about Quintuple Helix Blockchain Innovation Ecosystems and Extended Knowledge Networks and Knowledge Economies. You can watch my keynote in the link below.

Until next time,


Dr Naseem Naqvi FRCP FBBA
