We’re trying something new.
Since Ledger Labs was founded in Spring 2015, we’ve been very fortunate to work with a diverse array of clients from the very beginning of their interest in blockchain technology. We’ve worked with large financial institutions, government organizations, fintech startups, companies in our own industry, NGOs, media organizations, law firms, and many more.
From the beginning we’ve asked ourselves: what can we do that will have the biggest positive impact for our industry? In 2015, we believed being consultants was the answer. We believed there was a need for a credible, professional, technology-neutral consulting company focused on finding solutions for clients. A company that would take a critical approach to the technology, without glossing over the challenges and limitations.
We’re proud of the solutions we’ve helped develop for clients. Just as importantly, we’re proud that we’ve been able to save our clients a lot of time and money by giving them straight answers and clear-headed advice. Blockchains aren’t magic — they’re tools. Like any tool, they can be used in a way that takes advantage of their unique strengths, and they can be misapplied where a different tool might serve better.
Over the last few years, our industry has changed dramatically. Ethereum went from being a project on the horizon to a mature blockchain securing more than $20 billion in assets. Blockchain implementations went from Proofs of Concept to live products. The availability of developer tools and consumer-grade software has increased faster than even we anticipated. The permissioned ecosystem has grown, and academic institutions have started contributing to core research at the heart of the technology.
Now, we think the moment is right to try our hand at something new. We’ve partnered with BlockGeeks Lab to start a new venture. Ledger Labs is winding down its consulting practice and going into stealth mode to focus on developing our own product. Our years of consulting and deep blockchain expertise in this space have given us unique insight into what works and what doesn’t, and we’re excited to apply that knowledge to build something big and impactful.
In the meantime, if you are looking for some consulting insights to help with your blockchain initiative, let us know and we might be able to point you in the right direction.
