Founded in 2018, the FBBA is a dedicated and diverse network of business leaders who work together to represent and unite the blockchain community in the state of Florida. We bring together regulators, representatives, and industry leaders to create an innovation and technology focused environment, which benefits all Floridians.
The idea for a Florida-focused blockchain and cryptocurrency association was spawned among friends at a burger shop in Sarasota, Florida in late 2017. Since its inception, the Florida Blockchain Business Association has been at the forefront of pushing innovative legislation in Tallahassee, as well as growing and connecting local communities all around the state.
We are already known for our abundant sunshine, recreation, culture, and low cost of living, but Florida consistently ranks among the best states for business, thanks to its pro-business state tax policies, competitive cost of doing business, and streamlined regulatory environment.
We work alongside our members to prioritize issues that impact our industry and to create a powerful collective voice for the blockchain technology industry in Florida and beyond. Along the way, we help our members forge new business relationships and opportunities to drive economic opportunity to the state.
The FBBA was created to educate public officials and institutions, organize the various blockchain communities in Florida, and ensure smart, industry-led regulation is heard in Tallahassee. By informing the public and those who represent us, we can ensure Florida's position as a global leader in blockchain.
