a blockchain startup founded in July, 2018 by ex-block.one LLC
technology executives David Moss, Thomas Cox, Brian Abramson and Corey
Lederer, announced today at the Blockchain Thought Leadership Conference
in Lugano that it has opened its platform to Alpha waitlist sign-ups.
This market-defining platform will make it easy for anyone to create
their own custom-configured, enterprise-quality blockchain.
“The two biggest barriers to adoption of blockchain technology are
hard-to-use tech and a lack of staff who can make blockchain work. We’ve
eliminated both of those barriers,” said StrongBlock CEO David Moss.
“We’re making scalable and secure blockchains universally available by
making the technology ridiculously easy to use.”
When its Alpha version is released in early Q3 2019, the StrongBlock
platform will offer a simple dashboard for starting, monitoring and
managing governed blockchains through the full development life cycle.
To further ease blockchain adoption, StrongBlock is developing
pre-built, customizable applications for general use, as well as
specific implementations for industry verticals, including Luxury Goods,
Supply Chain, Oil and Gas, Alternative Energy, Fast Moving Consumer
Goods, Automotive, and Art and Collectibles. StrongBlock is also
adapting standards such as W3C, BiTA, data privacy sample code, and the
dGoods and Simple Assets standards for digital assets.
While StrongBlock is blockchain agnostic, the platform will initially
create backward-compatible EOSIO Open Source blockchains. “We chose
EOSIO in part because blockchain governance is vital for scaling,” said
StrongBlock Chief Governance Officer Thomas Cox. “EOSIO is currently the
only Open Source blockchain software available that contains all the
hooks needed to craft sophisticated governance structures and processes.”
The StrongBlock platform is launching with globally recognized
blockchain partners, including: WAX, EOS Cafe Block, CryptoLions, Dunya
Labs, EOS42, EOS Detroit, EOS Dublin, EOS Node One, EOS Rio, EOSphere,
EOS Tribe, Grey Mass, privEOS, RocketBC, Scatter and WordProof. These
professional partners – with many more to come – will provide block
production and blockchain application development services, and will
participate as vendors in the StrongBlock marketplace. Clients already
using the platform will be announced soon.
The StrongBlock Marketplace experience will be similar to shopping for
WordPress plugins, along with advanced services like professional block
production from qualified Block Producers, making it easy for users to
add applications and plugins from StrongBlock partners, customize their
blockchain, then securely invite their audience.
StrongBlock Alpha sign-ups start May 29th at https://www.strongblock.io.
Those signing up prior to the Alpha release will receive inside
information on the StrongBlock platform, as well as early access.
StrongBlock’s mission is to make enterprise-grade blockchains
universally available by making them ridiculously easy to configure,
launch and scale. StrongBlock founders David Moss, Thomas Cox, Corey
Lederer, and Brian Abramson, led the successful build of EOSIO as early
technology executives at block.one LLC. For more information, please
