BAF Curriculum

We work with professors, students, and industry experts to develop curriculum for university-accredited blockchain classes. So far, we helped launch the first blockchain courses at UCLA and UCSB.


BAF Research

Due the nascency of the industry, academic blockchain research is fragmented and siloed. We align academics investigating similar topics across universities and disciplines. We also actively work on internal research projects.


BAF Legal

Blockchain's impact on the law cannot be overstated, but at present, remains considerably under examined. We encourage blockchain literacy in the legal field by connecting law students and blockchain legal experts.
