Shaping the future with emerging technologies

We walk humanity towards a world where distributed ledger technology replaces trust in third parties with transparency, in which data can be verified by anyone. Where open collaboration between academics, government, and startups breeds innovation, and the value created flows more horizontally across participants in the network.

The DLT Science Foundation is a non-profit organisation headquartered in London with global operations in 12 countries. Supported by Hedera and Ripple, and publicly launched in March 2023 with a 5-year multi-million dollar endowment program, the DSF is a blockchain-agnostic organisation that aims to work across all Layer 1 blockchain infrastructure providers following an open collaboration and co-creation model between academia, industry, and government.
