Mission Statement

Blockchain technology is changing our understanding of transparency, authentication, trust, and contracts in the private and public sector. The Blockchain Association of New Zealand (BANZ) represents this rapidly emerging business sector and those engaged in the wider Financial Services, IT, and public sector communities.

BANZ engages in the education, development, adoption, and use of globally accepted, industry-leading knowledge and practices for distributed ledger technology.

Through our work we serve to link between 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 digitaleEconomy forward.


What is the blockchain?

Blockchain is the first successfully tested distributed ledger technology. The technology is a catalyst for the Age of Decentralisation, paving the way for business models that have not been possible before. It is providing us with new opportunities for human achievement.
