Tilburg University Blockchain Assocation

Sharing knowledge on blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies

Are you a student at Tilburg University and do you want to engage?

Our Goal

There is a fair chance that you have heard about blockchain by now. The technology underpinning Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, is on top of the hype cycle. However, the concept of the blockchain remains difficult to grasp for many students.

While most students are familiar with cryptocurrencies, their knowledge of the underlying technology remains limited. What are the characteristics of a blockchain and what is the potential that can be gained?

With more companies studying the benefits of the technology, the association wants to educate, discuss and learn from blockchain technology. We aim at creating a community where students can share and expand their knowledge of blockchain technology.

Mission Statement

With the creation of TUBA we hope to educate students about the potential of blockchain technology. By organizing events we hope to create a community where students of Tilburg University can learn about blockchain, share their knowledge, and discuss the various opportunities that the technology offers.
