Message from the Executive Director

As we come to the end of 2021 and reflect back on a roller coaster year we see so many opportunities for blockchain & cryptocurrency. In the United States, the year began with major controversies about the 2020 election, skyrocketing inflation, and supply chain challenges. And who can forget the impact that government regulations had on this community? The introduction of language into the US Infrastructure bill caused the blockchain ecosystem to have a conniption fit. We saw China, El Salvador, Zimbabwe, and other countries moving towards legitimizing and adopting cryptocurrencies and other forms of digital assets. Defi, CBDCs, NFTs, and the Metaverse all exploded onto the scene.

As we reflect on this past year, celebrate our faith and prepare for the new year, I would encourage all of us to be mindful that we are on this journey together. That there are things much more important than ourselves. And as the world seems to change so rapidly, we need good people of sterling character to lead in a sometimes chaotic and uncertain world. But, when future generations look back on this time, I hope that we will be remembered as people that brought hope, healing, and solutions to our communities and the world.
