Blockchain is a complex technology. The Vanbex Group provides comprehensive consulting and software development solutions to help companies and customers navigate this fast-growing industry.
Blockchain technology and cryptocurrency are two terms that have been making headlines over the past few years. They continue to be adopted by the mainstream market, to the point where it’s seemingly hard to go anywhere without hearing people talk about the disruptive technology and its impacts on society.
The entire cryptocurrency market was valued at more than $600 billion USD at the end of 2017. That’s a lot of money being invested into this emerging industry, which is all well and good, but do you really understand how blockchain works? Do you understand why it is so closely tied to cryptocurrency?
Well, don’t worry, we’ve learned a lot over the past five years, and we’re eager to share our insights with the Vancouver tech community. To start, let’s go over the basics. Cryptocurrencies are digital assets that use blockchain technology for their transactions, with Bitcoin being the most famous of the currencies. However, there are plenty of other uses for the technology outside of crypto, and it is becoming more and more appealing to various industries.
Cue the emergence of the Vanbex Group. It was back in 2013 when the Vanbex Group founder, Lisa Cheng, decided to take the plunge from her career in Enterprise Software and enter the world of blockchain technology.
As a result of Lisa’s forward thinking, the Vanbex Group was formed as a strategic communications organization to help companies in the blockchain industry tell their story. The company has since evolved into a professional services consultancy firm that specializes in all aspects of the blockchain industry.
Joined by Kevin Hobbs as CEO in 2015, the duo has led the company to provide a specific set of services focused on helping companies integrate blockchain technology. From management consulting, software application development, communications strategy, smart contract auditing, and blockchain market research, we assist companies and projects at any stage of growth. The market is flush with interest from companies new and old looking to adopt blockchain technology, and Vancouver is becoming a major hub for the rapidly evolving technology.
This surge in interest and demand for blockchain technology influenced the ideation and creation of the Vanbex Group’s subsidiary company, Etherparty. The company builds easy-to-use blockchain applications for the creation, use, and management of smart contracts. Meaning, any person, whether computer savvy or not, will now be able to leverage blockchain and smart contract technology for their own unique situations. No programming required.
The uses for blockchain technology aren’t slowing down anytime soon and that means the demand for comprehensive integration in all areas of a business will continue to grow and evolve. The Vanbex Group has the expertise and the proven track record to equip companies with the knowledge and the resources they need to feel confident in the blockchain space.
