Blockchain Centre Melbourne is a community and knowledge hub for blockchain professionals and enthusiasts; with over 4,000 people in our ecosystem. As Australia’s largest community of blockchain technology entrepreneurs, experts, mentors and investors, we have all the resources to assist and develop startups.

Until now we were running an ongoing non-structured incubator with Blockchain Global as the main investor and supporter. Some of our successful incubated companies are ACX, Coinstop, Daexs, Global BTC and Cloudbreak Asset Management.
To better serve the needs of the industry our next step is to implement a structured program for early stage blockchain startups.
