Greetings from the President of the Minnesota Blockchain Initiative!

Since our re-introduction in 2022, we’ve been on an exciting journey, expanding our organization across various fields and projects throughout the last year. 

In 2024, we’re leveraging the insights gleaned from our expansion to chart a course forward that aligns with our strengths and the aspirations of our community. 

At the heart of our agenda is a renewed focus on community engagement. We’re thrilled to introduce memberships and transform our Spotlight Meetups into monthly gatherings. These regular events will serve as vibrant hubs, bringing together enthusiasts and showcasing the groundbreaking work of our community leaders and builders.

In addition to amplifying local voices, we’re broadening our media footprint by launching “MNB Conversations,” our very own podcast. This platform will feature in-depth discussions and narratives on topics and projects closely tied to our state, providing an exploration of the blockchain and web3 landscape.

Furthermore, we’re scaling our efforts from grassroots activism to collaborations with C-suite executives. We aim to support more Minnesota institutions in navigating the opportunities and challenges presented by the emergence of Web3 technology. Building on the foundation laid in 2023, particularly in the field of law, we’re excited to continue fostering partnerships and driving forward meaningful conversations.

In essence, 2024 marks the continuation of our successful strategies while introducing new initiatives tailored to advance the blockchain and Web3 industry in Minnesota. Are you curious about the Minnesota Blockchain Initiative or Web3 technology? Don’t hesitate to contact us at or attend one of our events. 

Here’s to a transformative 2024!

Warm regards,

Brandon Ferdig

President, Minnesota Blockchain Initiative
