President's Message

Dear all,

We’re now over halfway through the year, and whilst 2020 has proved exceptional to say the least, we’re delighted to see how far we’ve come over the past 6 months.

From our ISC2020 conference back in March, to another edition of the JBBA publication, and our CEBB members portal going live, plus all of our and your various achievements along the way… it’s been fantastic to see!

We have much more planned for the second half of the year and we’re very much looking forward to our continued work and success together on the future of blockchain!

Until next time,
Naseem

About The JBBA
The JBBA provides a forum for authors to share proof of concepts, knowledge transfer, proof of impact, experimentation and experiences across a wide range of industries and technologies in which Blockchain is being deployed. It also publishes original research, thought-leadership opinion pieces, case studies, critical reviews and interviews with key influencers and blockchain/DLT experts from around the globe that advance the common level of monologue within the blockchain/DLT profession. 

For more information, get in touch on admin@britishblockchainassociation.org
 
“The JBBA has an outstandingly streamlined submissions process, the reviewer's comments have been constructive and valuable, and it is outstandingly well produced, presented and promulgated. It is, in my opinion, the leading journal for blockchain research and I expect it to maintain that distinction under the direction of its forward-looking leadership team.” 
 
- Dr Brendan Markey, Towler PhD​, University of Queensland, Australia
