About Us

The Latin American Blockchain and Fintech Initiative (LABFin) was formed in 2018 by a group of projects including ChainZilla, Komodo Platform, and NEM. It is a platform for all companies - big or small, established or startups - active in the Blockchain and Fintech space. On the one hand, we are driven by innovation, entrepreneurship, and decentralization with an interest in the politics on the other. Our mission is to bridge the gap between these spheres.

LABFin primarily aims at supplying early and first-hand information about relevant political and regulatory developments which have an impact on the industry. It is a broad coalition of companies and organizations that have come together with a common goal – to make blockchain and fintech ecosystems more accessible and to promote further development of this transformative technology.

What is more, it provides strategic advice to companies seeking to implement blockchain technologies in their everyday operations. One of the main goals is the formulation of common policy positions and in actively communicating those views to key decision-makers so as to create a more favorable regulatory environment.
