A Paradigm Shift

Since the advent of blockchain technology, the world is now witnessing a paradigm shift, from a single authoritative system which depends on trusted entities to a consensus-based system with no central point of trust;
We firmly believe that this paradigm shift will create enormous opportunities and values for both traditional and emerging industries as the current fragmented system will eventually be commoditized and decentralized.

Silo'd World

The current way of business operation is fragmented. Individual companies manage their own system, creating unnecessary duplication of data records and reconciliation through the 3rd party when transacting each other.
Distributed ledger technologies allow these isolated systems to efficiently manage information by creating a shared database system inspired by blockchain, which will function as a backbone of specific industry practices.


While entities preserve their independence, yet only share the processing logic, some will eventually adopt the permissionless nature of blockchain as the technology being matured in order to open up their business accessibility to the broader global community.
We envision the future where these permissionless applications to flourish and communicate with each other despite protocol differences.
