Over the past two years, we built, launched and operated ChainRift in an increasingly complex and competitive environment. Our team is composed of software developers, UX designers, and technologists. We have tried to bridge the gap that exists in our team on business development by onboarding partners, but despite our best efforts, we haven’t managed to secure partnerships that would propel ChainRift to profitability.

In light of this, we are spinning out our software development team from ChainRift into a new company focused on building software services only. …

Some focus on privacy, some on transparency, others aim for decentralization, on-chain governance, scalability, sustainability etc. Each blockchain design choice comes with its own set of trade-offs.

This plethora of ventures can seem confusing and hard to keep up with. But from the dawn of history to modern times, the concept and role of “money” have been constantly evolving with the needs and conditions of users. …
