About Us

Florida's Oldest & Most Innovative Blockchain Community

Who We Are

Passionate Leaders

We Are Better Together

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.

Our History

Local First

Thinking Florida

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.

Why Florida

Innovation Forward

We Are More Than Our Beautiful Weather

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.

How We Do It

Reliable Information

We Are A Trusted Educational Resource

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.
