Why become a member of BlockchainNZ?

Connections. Education. Development. Advocacy.

As a member of the New Zealand Tech Alliance, BlockchainNZ provides an independent, positive voice for blockchain in New Zealand. We work closely with New Zealand Government agencies, local businesses, other members of the NZTech Alliance and offshore partners to generate valuable benefits to our members.

Through our work we serve to link our Members’ voices to government and cross-industry stakeholders. The services we provide ensure our members are able to meet Best Practice Standards as they seek to grow their digital currency businesses as well as drive the wider digital economy forward.

Different organisations will benefit differently from being members of BlockchainNZ. It is a vehicle enabling members to do what individual organisations cannot do alone and even more benefit can be expected from growing membership and participation.

Key benefits for members include the ability to:

  • Directly shape the New Zealand blockchain agenda and calendar of activities;
  • Participate (at discounted rates) in activities throughout the year, both domestically and internationally;
  • Get promotional opportunities for yourself and your business in relevant activities and events;
  • Gain visibility of who is doing what and have direct opportunity to connect and collaborate with others;
  • Get sponsoring opportunities in blockchain related activities and events;
  • Be part of the wider New Zealand Technology Alliance

This is your opportunity to connect with others who care about blockchain, help shape the New Zealand blockchain agenda and promote collaboration across industry and Government.
