The Alliance Association

The Alliance as an Association

In June 2018, following the launch of the Portuguese Blockchain Alliance by CIONET Portugal as an initiative to raise awareness of this technology in Portugal, ALL2BC -  The Association of the Portuguese Blockchain Alliance was formed.

The Association of the Alliance was thus constituted with the following characteristics:

Portuguese Blockchain Alliance is a private, national and international, independent and non-profit social legal entity in a legal context whose general purpose is the development of a universal ecosystem that brings together companies, academia and government entities in order to promote and contribute to the study and dissemination of new disruptive technologies and their impact on the economy, society and the environment as well as on the construction and development of solutions based on these new technologies. Likewise, the Alliance will promote awareness, information and training initiatives on these paradigms.

In order to attain their object, these are the essential attributions of the Alliance:

a) Contribute to the study, debate, and dissemination of disruptive technologies by promoting ideas and initiatives that favor the development of solutions in articulation with civil society;

b) Collaborate with university and non-university bodies, companies, and institutions;
