Meet the faces behind CBN

Early 2017 a group of Blockchain enthusiast from Caribbean descent was looking for a place to share their thoughts about Blockchain and Cryptocurrency. They created the Caribbean Blockchain Group chat to do so. Almost a year later a meetup was organized which led to the creation of the Caribbean Blockchain Network, a platform for blockchain and crypto enthusiast tailor-made for the Caribbean region

We’re an open platform, a network of individuals and organization that seeks to expand the knowledge and understanding of  blockchain and related emerging technologies. We aim to harness the power of emerging technologies to improve wellbeing and welfare in the Caribbean region. Because in the end, a technology is only successful if it has a positive influence on society. Let’s unite our energy and knowledge to transform the Caribbean region into a more prosperous and interconnected environment.
