A publicly and privately supported non-profit devoted to the education,
promotion, and adoption of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.


Launched originally in 2015 as the Chicago Bitcoin Center by globally renowned blockchain thought leader Matthew Roszak, the Chicago Blockchain Center is an educational resource, community facilitator and ecosystem hub for all things blockchain and cryptocurrency in Chicago. Through our Elevate, Collaborate, Educate mission, we believe in the untapped potential of this city to help nurture real applications of blockchain technology, and help make our visions of this industry a reality.


Educate yourself, your school or your company through courses and talks tailored toward developers, designers, entrepreneurs and more.


Interact and network with others in the investment and startup community in the Wabash WeWork space, and more.


Connect with blockchain leaders in the midwest, and learn about other important players woven into the larger fabric of our Chicago ecosystem.


Our work at the CBC would not be possible without
the support of our fabulous partners…
