Embracing its Potential in the European Union

Four leading blockchain advocacy groups in the European Union – the European Crypto Initiative, INATBA, Blockchain for Europe, and the European Blockchain Association – released a collaborative manifesto during the Blockchain for Industry Conference, organised by the EU Commission’s DG GROW. The timing is crucial considering the upcoming elections and political changes Europe will undergo in the year 2024.

Our principles

We are dedicated to fostering a better future by uniting individuals and inspiring collective action.



All other stakeholders, associations and organisations interested can participate in shaping the Manifesto and the related initiatives.

European focus but global ambitions

While the Manifesto is currently focused on providing recommendations to the EU, its scope is global as Web3 is a global borderless market.



The objective is to deliver concrete recommendations and organise events and initiatives to showcase our vision.
