Students develop dApps, research crypto markets, and analyze real-world use-cases.
While the technology is still young, Badger Blockchain is determined to make its future a reality.
“For the 'other 6 billion' who don't enjoy international, control-free banking, bitcoin not only represents a new method for transactions, but a means to become part of a global economy.”
"Blockchain technology isn't just a more efficient way to settle securities. It will fundamentally change market structures, and quite possibly the architecture of the Internet itself."
"The blockchain cannot be described just as a revolution. It is a tsunami-like phenomenon, slowly advancing and enveloping everything along its way by the force of its progression."
Badger Blockchain is UW's first official student blockchain organization, bringing together students and the larger Madison community to study blockchain technologies. Our group focuses on the present and future realities of the environment, which includes development of smart contracts and dApps, analysis of crypto-markets, and research into industrial use-cases. Additionally, we tap into protocol white papers and upcoming legal regulations.
With partnerships with BEN (the Blockchain Education Network) and CCC (ConsenSys College Consortium), Badger Blockchain provides a lasting platform for students, educators, entrepreneurs, and community leaders within the field to collaborate and build an evermore active blockchain community.
Badger Blockchain is divided into Development, Market Outlook, and Protocol Discussion, all of which dissect a particular area of blockchain.
