The IBI Think Tank

The Institute for Blockchain Innovation think tank includes a full roster of blockchain and cryptocurrency visionaries, as well as leaders from the fintech, venture capital, academia, and government, united in their effort to identify and solve global issues that can benefit from the adoption of blockchain technology.

Gregory Keough, Founder Institute for Blockchain Innovation Speaking at BlockFin

Gregory Keough founded the Institute for Blockchain Innovation with the mission to democratize and levele the playing field in the investment space.  IBI’s goal is to empower companies of any size to raise capital, while giving even small investors access to the types of investment opportunities they’re usually shut out of. 
Keough consulted with Blockchain industry expert attorneys,  Cooley, LLP,  to design a blockchain-based digital equity security that delivers this opportunity.

First IBI Initiative: JOBS Crypto Offering

The Institute’s first initiative is the JOBS Crypto Offering (JCO): a new approach to trading digital equity securities on the blockchain. 

The JCO is a next-gen hybrid that creates a pathway to IPO on the blockchain that is open to investors of any size.
