The Estonians have a long history of trying new things in digital, and blockchain is no exception. Guardtime – a security software firm – is using blockchain in a variety of ways, but more recently is setting tongues wagging for fusing it with cloud technology.
Guardtime is putting the trust back in the world just when it may need it most. Focusing on supply chains and making them accountable is their goal: “Our mission is to validate that information and make it universally reliable.”
Founded in Estonia (but headquartered in Amsterdam) the 130+ strong team has offices around the world and for a good reason – these guys have fingers in a lot of pies. Working with insurance firms, digital advertisers, automotive, defence, telco and finance industries, Guardtime is a company that is not just eliminating inefficiencies but also providing integrity for data. That’s important whether dealing with an individual’s identity or connected vehicles.
Guardtime was mapped in Trust this AtlasChart: Paul Armstrong’s Blockchain Top 5.
