Approximately one year ago, we reported the launch of StrongBlock, a Blockchain as a Service company lead by former Block.one SVP David Moss. This year's news is that they have launched its platform and marketplace. StrongBlock provides easy entry for anyone seeking to create blockchain-based solutions with a push-button platform and a marketplace of applications, services and node providers. StrongBlock enables anyone to launch a blockchain in minutes, with access to their own node - free of charge, with almost 4,000 transactions per second. “We built this platform for ourselves, so we could rapidly build blockchain solutions,” said Moss, StrongBlock Founder and CEO. “We spoke with hundreds of companies, and found that their previous blockchain projects were unsuccessful due either to a lack of resources, or that the blockchain technology couldn’t scale. The StrongBlock platform solves both of these problems, so we’re excited to make it publicly available for everyone to use.” StrongBlock hopes to launch with companies in industries such as logistics, supply chain, food safety, product provenance, construction, real estate, manufacturing, finance, and retail, so we're looking forward to seeing who will launch Blockchain projects on this exciting platform.
