The University of York Blockchain Development and Research Society was formed in 2018 by Vishal Soomaney, Peter Jupp and Liem Vu. With the goal of education in mind, the society was founded on the principles of sharing knowledge and better preparing the students of the University of York for their post-graduation future.
