Blockchain Intelligence Group (BIG), a Canada-based developer of blockchain technology solutions, has announced it has been accepted as a member of the Blockchain Alliance – a coalition of over 30 companies from the blockchain industry and more than 30 law enforcement and regulatory agencies around the world.

The Blockchain Alliance aims to provide a forum for open dialogue between the blockchain industry, law enforcement and the regulatory agencies, in the effort to help combat criminal activity that abuses the bitcoin and cryptocurrency space. Within the forum, the Blockchain Alliance provides education, technical assistance, and information around digital currencies under the blockchain umbrella.

Protecting public safety and fighting criminal activity on the blockchain will help to spearhead the continued growth of this technology, the release said. The Alliance focuses its energy on these and other concerns and misperceptions about digital currencies and the blockchain to protect public safety and help foster a pro-growth legal and regulatory environment.

“The reputational issues surrounding digital currencies have the potential to impair the growth of applications for blockchain technology, and we wanted to help the industry take proactive steps to address those issues”, Alan Cohn, who serves as counsel to the Blockchain Alliance, said.

Founded by the Chamber of Digital Commerce and Coin Center, the Blockchain Alliance believes that its role is necessary and an important step for the continued growth of the industry.

“We’re very excited to welcome BIG to the Alliance. BIG’s expertise in blockchain data and analytics is a great asset to the Alliance and its government partners”, Cohn added.
