“In Q1 and Q2 2020, BCF achieved positive net income and a significant increase in gross revenue. This positive outcome was a direct result of increased client development activity as well as growing market acceptance of blockchain technology. The Company experienced a substantial increase in client engagements and with the scope and breadth of projects we have undertaken over the first half of 2020, the Company continues to build its reputation as a leading blockchain service provider,” said Dan Wasyluk, CEO of Blockchain Foundry.
The Company continues to develop its suite of blockchain infrastructure technology products and build its blockchain development and advisory business.
On the product side, BCF is building core technology to enable highly scalable, low cost, high speed blockchain transactions (Z-DAG), allow users to incorporate multiple blockchain systems within the same project (Syscoin-Ethereum bridge), and initialize custom blockchain tokens (Spark Wallet). BCF’s technology infrastructure is suitable for a variety of use cases where speed, scalability, fees and security are important factors, including stablecoin projects, loyalty applications, digital identities, and remittance services.
BCF has expanded its efforts in the stablecoin area and recently entered into two important partnerships to further develop this business line (please see details below). Stablecoins are digital tokens that are pegged to fiat currencies, precious metals or other traditional asset classes. Stablecoins have experienced rapid growth and the total market size is in excess of US$10 billion1. BCF’s partnerships in this area are intended to help the Company increase market awareness for its service offerings and take advantage of growth in this new industry.
On the advisory side, BCF endeavours to work with clients who share the same priorities and vision for what blockchain technology can achieve for governments, businesses and consumers. To date, BCF has worked with clients across industries including digital identity, financial services and token wallet and development infrastructure.
