It is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and has founded the Token Alliance, Blockchain Intellectual Property Council, Smart Contracts Alliance, Blockchain Alliance, Global Blockchain Forum and many other key industry initiatives.

Tanya Woods, executive director of the BAC, will take on the position of managing director of the Chamber of Digital Commerce Canada. She will spearhead the organisation’s operations from Ottawa.

“Bringing our two organizations under the same banner sends a powerful message to our respective members, blockchain ecosystem participants, and policymakers,” said Perianne Boring, founder and president of the Chamber of Digital Commerce.

“Tanya brings more than a decade of strategic advocacy experience and is a trusted advisor to the blockchain community and the Canadian Government at the highest levels. She is a strong advocate for the Canadian blockchain community.”

The BAC was founded in 2013 and aimed to raise awareness, provide support, and further adoption of digital currencies such as bitcoin, and blockchain technologies among in Canada, as well as to promote studies and research and support participation in Canadian and international partnerships and associations.

“Canada is a leader when it comes to driving innovation, entrepreneurship and the digital economy,” said Woods. “Canada’s blockchain leaders and government would like to see a strong and coordinated blockchain ecosystem that is ready and able to effectively collaborate with policymakers to ensure the industry in Canada will thrive.”
