Greetings, blockchain enthusiasts! Allow us to introduce ourselves: Rodrigo van Asseldonk and Vince van Hoesel, co-founders and presidents of the European Students Blockchain Coalition (ESBC). But who are we, and why should you care? Let's dive in. Our journey began with a simple observation: a lack of an overarching coalition to unite student blockchain associations across Europe. Determined to fill this void, we took the initiative to establish a club within our own university. Little did we know, this humble beginning would evolve into something much greater.
