As a founders team we have made the decision to build up Advanced Blockchain Solutions because we are convinced that blockchain technology has the potential to massively improve scaleability, transparency and security of financial service offerings. And this is just the beginning. On the long run we see an application of blockchain technology being extended into other areas as well.
