The AKASHA Foundation announced the opening of a new blockchain innovation hub in Dublin. This new location is a regional branch of the Foundation, which has its headquarters in Crypto Valley, Switzerland, and was founded in 2015 by Ethereum co-founder Mihai Alisie.
The opening of this co-working space adds another physical location to a developing network of innovation hubs that the Foundation is working to create around the world. The Dublin hub will serve as a place for Blockchain development, training, education, incubation, and acceleration support.
To celebrate the opening of this new, strategically-important innovation hub, the AKASHA Foundation is holding ‘Open House’ events in Dublin and Galway as part of Ireland’s Blockchain Week.
“We are delighted to see an internationally renowned Blockchain project such as AKASHA establish a presence in Dublin,” said Andrew Tzialli, Partner at Philip Lee who heads up the firm’s Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Group, and who is collaborating with the AKASHA Foundation.
AKASHA Founder, Mihai Alisie, said “We are really excited about our new presence in Dublin since Ireland as a whole promises great potential when it comes to the future development of blockchain technology. We already have a presence in Zug and Barcelona, and we are sure that Dublin will be a fantastic addition to the global blockchain innovation network.”
AKASHA’s presence in Dublin aims to catalyze the local blockchain community by connecting them with individuals, groups, and projects in the space, enhancing collaboration through events, activities and access to a network of innovation hubs.
Building upon the success of AKASHA Barcelona, the Dublin space will nurture and encourage open innovation and collective action within the Irish blockchain community and beyond.
Mihai Alisie is one of the early pioneers in the blockchain space. Mihai created Bitcoin Magazine in 2011 together with Vitalik Buterin, later joining him as one of the original four Ethereum Founders in late 2013.
The AKASHA Foundation is a non-profit born at the intersection of blockchain and collective intelligence. The Foundation nurtures projects helping individuals unlock their potential through open systems that expand our collective minds at local, regional and global scales.
