About Us

Blockchain Centre (BC) Vilnius is the first blockchain technology centre connecting key stakeholders in Asia, Australia, and Europe. Our goal is to unlock value using blockchain technology in business, finance, and public administration.

A state-of-the-art coworking and shared office space for blockchain start-ups, BC Vilnius joins partner BC’s in Melbourne and Shanghai to incubate and accelerate blockchain start-ups while sharing information about new blockchain opportunities.

Together, the BC’s will be a major force for the development and application of blockchain technology worldwide, completing the age of the internet revolution by empowering social and economic value chains.

A New & Powerful Network

For commercial entities, our network represents a unique gateway to access trustworthy advisors, business intelligence, and start-up capital needed to grow. For regulators and civil servants, our new platform offers the chance to advance the discussion beyond the “sandbox” and make distributed ledger technology a positive force for change in how daily processes run and how value is exchanged between stakeholders.

Lithuania: Europe’s Cutting Edge

Opening a business in Lithuania can be as quick as 24 hours with the use of an e-signature, and gives you access to the EU’s market of more than 500 million consumers. Eurozone member with direct settlement options offered by the Central Bank, and being the first European Union country to publish ICO guidelines, Lithuania has been steadily advocating blockchain technology in finance, health, content sharing, and public administration.
