JOIN OUR TELEGRAM (https://t.me/joinchat/FNhWzRHgkp68u5xJpJvIwQ) (general chat) and DISCORD (https://discord.gg/gv2v4mE) (working group)

GBA-ATL is our chapter of a global non-profit association working with local, state, national, and international governments to meet their missions by bringing together public and private sector Blockchain and related technologies professionals.

GBA-Global establishes best practices that promote blockchain related solutions by working with governments to help solve challenges and to meet missions to better serve citizens. Members communicate, contribute and collaborate by joining local chapters and distributed working groups. Working Groups give members the chance to work on real-world challenges and produce and deliver current user generated content, such as blogs, presentations and white papers that are made available to the public and private sector. |

GBA creates relationships that would otherwise not come about – between and among technologists, public policy makers, application specialists and those who simply need to understand the new and emerging digital currencies that will change the world. GBA will act as a catalyst and facilitator in creating a public dialog around the creative, profitable and positive leveraging of blockchain technologies.

This group is sponsored by the Government Blockchain Association (GBA) (http://gbaglobal.org). See a full list of our events on our calendar by clicking HERE (https://gbaglobal.org/events/list/).
