Blockchain at Columbia, Columbia University's student organization for distributed ledger technology.
B@C nurtures development in the blockchain ecosystem upon a foundation for technical problem-solving.
The community fosters relevant academic research through critical analysis of new technologies. The
organization’s high standard for knowledge encourages both education on complex subjects and distribution
of valuable resources on all related topics.
Founded in early 2017 by several Columbia undergraduates, B@C has since grown into a complex university-wide
initiative. Weekly events include technical discussions, academic lectures, and crypto hour discussions
for evaluating market trends. Previous larger events include presentations on the Bitcoin network,
panels regarding inclusivity of the Blockchain space, and seminars from emerging distributed ledger
organizations. B@C has several committees to execute its objectives: Education, Technical Research
& Development, Financial Research, Operations, and Public Relations. Each serves a unique purpose
and are maintained by a team of Officers and their Committee Leader. The Education Committee, for
example, facilitates courses on distributed ledger technology for students and faculty on campus.
All Committee Leaders, along with the President and Vice-President, make up the Executive Board of
