Why is an alliance important?
An alliance is a concept long-revered as a mechanism for mutual cooperation dating back to the late Middle Ages. The oldest known alliance, The Anglo-Portuguese Alliance forged in 1386, ushered in a spirit of friendship and mutual respect between England and Portugal that has carried across time to the present day. This alliance is a bond that has informed each country's military during times of world war, and during times of peace a cross-cultural appreciation has blossomed among citizens. An alliance created over 600 years ago continues to foster mutual respect and benefit for both parties.
By definition 'an alliance is a relationship among people, groups, or states that have joined together for mutual benefit or to achieve some common purpose, whether or not explicit agreement has been worked out among them. Members of an alliance are called allies.'
History provides a roadmap for this brave new world of ours—forging an alliance to foster peace across the ages is a gift we give to ourselves and future generations.
Youth education is that bridge between Satoshi's generation and those that follow. Mass adoption depends on the next generation reaching for the baton and running toward a future we may only dream about. That future relay is dependent on an investment of time and resources that we make, as a alliance, today.
What we can achieve together
Central to MAA's mission is coordinating an alliance of partners across cryptocurrency, education and humanitarian ecosystems.
