We promote the adoption of blockchain technologies and digital currencies by actively collaborating with and promoting the efforts of our global blockchain community. We welcome other blockchain associations, non-profits, governmental groups, corporations and individuals.
We aspire to improve our world and everyone’s lives (especially the poor) with the adoption and use of blockchain technologies. We aspire that governments and businesses will be more efficient, effective and responsive – and, that the individual members of society will be the primary beneficiaries.
We value innovation and purposeful disruption. We value the enthusiasm, skill and capabilities of our global blockchain community. We value empathy and caring for our planet and our common humanity.
TriStone Consulting Group LLC created and manages BIG. TriStone also owns and manages the world’s largest community of Social Media Groups with 6.4 million plus members that form a thriving community of blockchain, digital currency, FinTech and technology professionals.
We believe that Intial Coin Offerings (ICOs) can be a revolutionary and valid form of fund raising, whose decentralized nature allows for more egalitarian participation. To promote the acceptance of ICOs and to protect the public and investors, however, we also believe that ICOs should be regulated.
For now, Members (and Non-Members) may not state or imply that their association with BIG is an endorsement of any ICO, whether they have an ‘Advisor,’ ‘Non-Profit,’ ‘Ambassador,’ ‘Partner,’ ‘Friend,’ or any other official or unofficial designation or status with BIG. In addition, any company currently in a Pre-ICO or ICO stage may not display the BIG logo nor may they state that they have a ‘Partner’ or similar relationship with BIG either on their website or elsewhere (even if they are a ‘BIG Partner’ or other category of Member).
