    Manchester: home of elite sporting history, a world-renowned music scene and famous, thriving nightlife. But Avark and our fellow blockchain pioneers are about to put Manchester on the map for something entirely different: web3.

    Here at Avark, we were thrilled to recently launch our new initiative, Manchester Blockchain Alliance (MBA).

    In partnership with fellow web3 brands of Manchester, we’re aiming to make our home city the web3 capital of the UK.

    The Manchester Blockchain Alliance launch party and inaugural community event took place at Manchester Technology Centre on January 12th, featuring guest speakers from some of our fellow founding members.
