Who we are
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
Leveraging connections through Vilnius, Melbourne, and Shanghai, we are harnessing the power of innovation on three continents to create powerful synergies for improving the way companies, individuals, and governments address daily challenges.
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
Our decision to locate in Vilnius acknowledges Lithuania’s ambition to lead Europe in blockchain and fintech along with the favourable regulatory environment it has created.
As one of Europe’s newest eurozone members with direct settlement options offered by its Central Bank, Lithuania has been steadily encouraging the use of blockchain technology in finance, health, content sharing, and public administration.

According to the Bloomberg Innovation Index 2017, Lithuania is one of the world’s most innovative economies. The World Bank ranks Lithuania among its Top 20 for Doing Business, meanwhile, Forbes magazine ranks Lithuania 15th globally on its annual Best Countries for Business List. Opening a business in Lithuania takes just three days and gives you access to the EU’s market of more than 500 million consumers.
Blockchain Centre Vilnius will build on Lithuania’s talent pool and support from its public institutions to create a long-term value gateway to Europe for Asian partners.
