We are a small, high-tech product firm passionate about using blockchain technology to innovate and solve business problems. We are a bunch of self-starters who thrive in an environment where the path has not yet been paved. We love to innovate and collaborate and are never content until we get it right.

Our patriotism runs deep. About half of our business is in the defense and intelligence sectors of the U.S. Government and many on our team have military or security backgrounds. We want to help organizations achieve their missions to protect and serve the American people.
