Government Blockchain Association (GBA) Communities of Interest (CoI) include Civil Servants, Professional Members and Corporate Members who share knowledge, collaborate on topics and explore scenarios where blockchain solutions can be used to promote a shared objective.

Working Groups focus on producing functional solutions and content such as blogs, whitepapers, and other publications for established use cases and projects, while Chapters, are bound by localized geographic boundaries.

CoIs will explore more broad topics based neither on specific design and delivery of use cases or needs by a specific geographic location. They will likely produce many use cases and projects that will then be transferred to the Working Groups and Chapters to determine requirements, develop solutions and deliver agreed-upon outputs.

These communities will discuss what problems and challenges may exist, how those issues might be best served, and, more importantly, why blockchain and cryptocurrencies are relevant to the needs and missions of identified professionals and governments.
