Blockchain, DLT, decentralised finance and digital assets are profoundly transforming our society.
Companies active in blockchain in Belgium are confronted with competitive complexities that go beyond the framework of national and European regulations. The real challenge for the BAx and our country is to find a solution that is adapted, on the one hand, to the tasks of the national legislators who must protect consumers and guarantee their security and the integrity of the markets as much as possible, and, on the other hand, to allow the development of a competitive service offer in an environment that knows no borders.
By establishing a dialogue between the different levels of government, regulators and financial institutions, BAx will therefore focus on improving the public policy environment so that blockchain-related projects, especially those subject to prudential obligations, can flourish in Belgium while respecting privacy and data protection.
The aim of the BAx is to promote the attractiveness of Belgium as a leading country for blockchain-based activities.
Its mission is to :
Represent the voice of the blockchain and digital asset industry in Belgium.
Advance the Belgian ecosystem as a global hub for blockchain technologies.
Encourage the development of a secure and competitive national and European legal framework in Belgium.
Create communication channels within the finance, insurance and government sectors to share knowledge, identify opportunities and thus ensure a more secure digital future.
Develop – Accelerate
in close collaboration with Fintech Belgium, provide infrastructure and training to entrepreneurs, SMEs and companies in the digital asset economy and thus promote local employment.
To help businesses understand how they can increase their competitiveness through blockchain.
To make the general public understand the implications of these technologies.
