The Essence of Existence
An Existentialist view of Blockchain
When you go down the rabbit hole of the exciting new world of a startup, the world indeed looks a little upside down. The unknown end point at the end of that hole — whether it is the mad-hatter or the Red Queen, you are going to meet becomes a matter of excitement.
Ours is a Blockchain services company. Let me help by breaking that up word-by-word.
Blockchain is what someone in twitter quipped as a ‘chain of blocks’ — I am not going to bore you with the same old tripe on it — am sure if you are reading this, probably you’ve already googled it. So, we deal with it — we think of ways to create solutions for the problems of the world and see if we can bring a sense of order to the chaotic technical world.
We are also a services company. Yea, the much abused word in the whole of IT industry. As much as we love product engineering, we also love in providing solutions to particular problems our customers have.
However, the challenge has been that while everyone knows Blockchain — no one understands why they need it. Or as Sartre would’ve put it ‘ The existence precedes the essence’.
Blockchain as a technology has been around for quite a bit and the entire crypto-currency world is at least a decade old. So why is it so hard to find the essence or in simpler words, the purpose of it?
The answer is that a lot of people have found it in their own ways. Again, dragging Sartre into the conversation, the existentialist problem of what Blockchain does has been answered by quite a bit of solutions that are already in place for some of the essential problems of the day.
As a young company, we believe in bringing Blockchain to the varied problems of everyone and see if that solution deserves a Blockchain solution. We consult, assess and recommend. You will be surprised to know the areas we’ve found used for implementing Blockchain.
Why we do this? Because we are a Blockchain services company. We believe that being honest about the way a problem need to be solved is more important than building just the bells and whistles for the customer. It is that simple.
Thus, the essence need not precede the existence but rather can be found if you look hard enough.
