Our credo

“We will create a civilization of the Mind in Cyberspace. May it be more humane and fair than the world your governments have made before.” – John Perry Barlow, 1996

Through blockchain and P2P technologies, we develop solutions that are censorship resistant, respect your privacy and that cannot be manipulated by one central authority, thereby ensuring a positive outlook on technological developments.  

Open Source development is the only way to ensure transparency, security and fast development. Code bugs and serious security problems can be spotted and solved very easily.

Complex problems always need easy implementation. Henceforth, every solution we provide is user-centric, based on human-design as well as design-thinking principles thereby ensuring that your solution will correspond to your audience’s needs.

Being prepared for the future is the key to stay relevant in today’s hyper-competitive technological world. Your software needs to be State of the Art and, more importantly, upgradeable in order to allow your product to remain viable as long as possible.
