Shanel Huang

The network and tight-knit community at BAF was super valuable to me when I was first exploring the blockchain space.

SEBASTIeN LA DUCA

BAF’s community totally changed my life. As a college student, it helped me get an internship, become a 5x better engineer, say no to a FAANG job, start a company instead, and make some of the best friends I've ever had.

LEV STAMBLER

BAF helped bring me into the world of Blockchain and crypto. Rather than a world is spammers, meme coins, and quick money, BAF is a community trying to push Blockchain forward, both technically and policy-wise.

NIKITA BUZOV

BAF has done an amazing job cultivating an active community from different backgrounds and levels of expertise in the blockchain space. It really kickstarted my network and career in the space, which I'm personally most thankful for!

I have been involved with BAF since 2018. My first exposure to BAF was thorough our campus blockchain club. BAF has been and continues to be an important resource within my network.
