TECHNOLOGY THAT ENABLES FRICTIONLESS FINANCE

We are the technology company that built and developed the world’s first open, permissionless, pure proof-of-stake blockchain protocol that, without forking, provides the necessary security, scalability, and decentralization needed for today’s economy. With an award-winning team, we enable traditional finance and decentralized financial businesses to embrace the world of frictionless finance.

Covering the last mile of Blockchain

Bleumi is a blockchain technology company that builds payment solutions – covering the last mile of the blockchain ecosystem – enabling digital currency adoption by businesses in every-day payment and payout use cases.

Our team pioneers in blockchain technology (Algorand, Bitcoin, Ethereum, RSK, Stellar, xDai, and more) and also offers end-to-end blockchain services, from consulting to implementing and managing scalable and secure blockchain solutions.

Fueling the Adoption of Permissionless Blockchain Networks

PureStake is focused on providing the highest quality infrastructure and services for public blockchain networks.

For us, that means our services are as secure as possible, with maximal uptime and performance. We are relentlessly dedicated to providing safe, stable infrastructure and services — no matter what.

Sometimes, that means cool new features have to wait until the next sprint. And we’re okay with that, as long as we’re able to continue delivering the best, most reliable blockchain infrastructure services to our customers.

Today, we are trusted by customers all across the blockchain — including early backers, developers, enterprises, and other participants that need to interact with crypto networks but don’t have either the time or the expertise — to launch and manage the infrastructure they need to run their technology.

We’re leading the media by modeling the Three T’s:

Our ambition is to serve up the world’s most-loved digital media properties dedicated to blockchain: websites, events, television shows, books, podcasts, and blogs. We want to help the most people possible, to make the maximum positive impact on humanity.

The Cardano Foundation is striving towards a blockchain-enabled better future based on inclusiveness and transparency. Our ambition is to build a blockchain-complete era’s global financial and social operating system. We are an independent standards body that oversees and supervises the advancement of Cardano — a decentralized public blockchain. The Cardano Foundation’s core focus is to accelerate the adoption of Cardano and empower integration and execution, enabling fast-track value creation for inclusive and equitable growth — for both the few and the many.

In 2030,
Social Networks
will work for you.

FABRK Foundation is committed to a future where the content and attention that you bring online with you is compensated. Social networks must be governed from the bottom up, treating users like the valuable constituents they are, rather than a vulnerable source of private information.

As part of the Central bank of the United States, the Boston Fed works to promote sound growth and financial stability in New England and the nation.

We strengthen the competitiveness of the tech and innovation economy by driving strategic investments, partnerships, and insights that harness the talent of Massachusetts.
