We founded the BLOCKCHAIN KNOWLEDGE FOUNDATION (or BKS). Before we were colleagues at the University of Groningen. This University was founded 1614, a top global top 100 university.
We are all men from the North, we like our region and we are happy to have large data companies and institutions in our town, like Duo.nl (de facto Ministry of ICT) or Gasunie.nl (The EU gas roundabout, storage and production). Also financial institutions love settling in the North of the Netherlands, known for the integrity.
