Blockchain Technology Research Innovations Corporation (BTRIC) is a 501(c)(3) economic development organization that is devoted to fostering emerging technologies, through business incubation and other initiatives, that decentralize the control structures that have entrenched global systems for centuries. Our first incubation projects are "Bitcoin for Good", which increases the use of cryptocurrency by charities, "Cryptocurrency Federal Credit Union", which creates a financial institution that specializes in crypto people and businesses, and "Sea to Table", which uses IoT and a special purpose distributed ledger to enable seafood traceability to protect consumers from fraud. Contributions to BTRIC – monetary, asset, and in-kind – may be tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Consult with a qualified tax advisor for more information. Through our business incubation program, we identify, foster, research and develop projects that leverage emerging technologies to create a better world. We infuse these projects with best-practices guidance and work with all stakeholders – innovators, engineers, advisors, marketers, partner organizations, and donors – to bring next-generation, “Internet 3.0”, projects to life. When a project has completed the incubation process, it separates from BTRIC and becomes an independent business, ready for investment, growth, and prepared to shatter paradigms. Our other initiatives focus on promoting diversity in projects, standardizing regulatory compliance, and facilitating the development of standards that promote the common good of all projects in our space. Our work is released under open licenses, and we invite participation from anyone interested in governance or any other aspect of our work. Our finances, policies, procedures, and activities are fully transparent. Contributions to BTRIC – monetary, asset, and in-kind – may be tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

About Blockchain Technology Research Innovations Corporation

BTRIC is a 501 non-profit charitable organization that is devoted to fostering emerging technologies, through business incubation and other initiatives, that decentralize the control structures that have entrenched global systems for centuries.

Through our business incubation program, we identify, foster, research and develop projects that leverage emerging technologies to create a better world. We infuse these projects with bestpractices guidance and work with all stakeholders – innovators, engineers, advisors, marketers, partner organizations, and donors – to bring next-generation, “Internet 3.0”, projects to life. When a project has completed the incubation process, it separates from BTRIC and becomes an independent business, ready for investment, growth, and prepared to shatter paradigms.

Contributions to BTRIC – monetary, assets, and in-kind – may be tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Consult with a qualified tax advisor for more information.

Features

BTRIC is short for Blockchain Technology Research Innovations Corporation.  We're a 501(c)(3) economic development organization.  Our mission is to build promising emerging technology projects into great startup businesses, through business incubation and acceleration, and to advocate, educate, and research about the benefits that emerging technology is bringing to humanity.

As a non-profit, we do not have investors—we have donors.  However, like other non-profit economic development organizations, our donors are uniquely positioned to become investors in the businesses that launch from our Innovations Incubator program.  Of course, the rules about investing are complicated and in a state of flux, but as each project launches as an independent business, they will reward their donors in some form (legally compliant based on their business model and the jurisdiction in which they choose to form their business).  This provides tangible benefits to our donors.

In addition, as a non-profit, we are uniquely positioned to provide our BTRIC Institute and BTRIC Labs programs that benefit the entire emerging technology ecosystem.  BTRIC has been awarded the GuideStar Platinum Transparency Seal, the highest recognition that GuideStar offers, demonstrating our commitment to operational and financial transparency.

Contributions to BTRIC – monetary, asset, and in-kind – may be tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Consult with a qualified tax advisor for more information.

Blockchain Technology Research Innovations Corporation Roadmap

  • The initial concept for BTRIC was conceived while researching for a project using blockchain DLT and taking a close look at the state of the emerging technology industry.
  • August 30, 2017

  • BTRIC was incorporated as a New Jersey, USA non-profit corporation.
  • September 11, 2017

  • BTRIC was recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a Section 501(c)(3) organization, which allows contributors to receive a tax deduction (to the extent allowed by law).
  • September to December 2017
