New York-based Agentic Group LLC – a global consortium with members in the blockchain, fintech and digital currency industries – announced a new initiative this week with Bermuda’s Government.
The initiative will see Agentic Group, which also has offices in Paris and London, working with the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA) on raising awareness about the benefits of blockchain technology and digital currencies in the region.
Rik Willard, Founder and Managing Director of Agentic Group, said that the organization is “delighted” to be working with the BMA. According to the press release, Agentic Group will establish facilities in Bermuda to help kickstart the British island territory’s fintech industry, “We look to working closely with government to establish both a digital currency incubator and blockchain startup facility in Bermuda” said Willard.
Agentic Group’s 33-member consortium is comprised of some of the most recognisable names in the blockchain industry like the BitGive Foundation, Bitcoin’s first 501c nonprofit, and digital currency news service BraveNewCoin.
On Monday, Agentic Group tweeted about its collaboration with the Government of Bermuda:
