​The Blockchain Academy Network is a Danish point of access with focus on blockchain technology. The project is called the Blockchain Academy Network, and it aims to bring together Denmark’s brightest minds within blockchain technology to teach and upgrade the Danish business community, organisations and the political system so that they can better understand the opportunities and challenges in the technology.
