Our mission, should we choose to accept it…

Blockunit is helping bring blockchain to the real world.

by Hello I'm Nik

In the 1990s, the internet was a place for cyber punks and fringe groups. Today, it’s still a place for cyber punks and fringe groups–but it’s also an essential part of our everyday lives. At Blockunit, we believe that blockchain technology is today where the internet was in the early ‘90s.

Getting to the new internet

Since Bitcoin’s birth in 2009, the world has slowly realised the potential of its underlying technology. Everything from finance and accounting to logistics and deeds to public services like voting and governance will be reimagined.

But the people behind these projects have realised that to truly make a difference on a global scale, blockchain must go mainstream. We’re talking internet status. That means we need everybody using blockchain technology the same way they use the internet today.

And that’s where we come in…

Amidst the screams of ‘When moon? When Lambo?’ from cryptocurrency investors, there’s another movement with a focus on how else blockchain can be used. And how it can improve the lives of billions.

By accelerating mainstream use of blockchain technology, we can get there even faster. One of the ways we plan to do that is through education.

Why Education?

The rise of bitcoin and blockchain originated in the online communities of computer programmers along with phrases like ‘peer-to-peer’, ‘decentralisation’ and ‘byzantine fault tolerant’. Nearly 10 years later, we’re ready to take this technology to the masses, but we need new phrases, relatable analogies and simple explanations. Only then will be see the average woman or man start to understand, get behind and ultimately use blockchain.

With our top team of designers, writers and marketers, we’ll build a library of jargon-free content and act as a funnel for those exploring blockchain for the first time.

Over the next few months we’ll be publishing introductory articles about blockchain and and updates on our current projects. We’ll also be highlighting the efforts from other teams working separately towards the collective vision of widespread blockchain adoption.
