The number of “blockchain players” (meaning either established companies or start-ups) that Blocktonite has identified in the past two months has increased from 391 to 528. In other words: an increase of 35% during only 15% of a year.
Since I started a daily routine of skimming articles on blockchain (297 days ago) – clearly the number one company with at least the most press is IBM. As of this morning, I’ve collected 99 articles on Big Blue and blockchain and that’s not counting a number of articles related to other companies working with IBM for industry applications – like Walmart, DTTC, Maersk and more. They are building their platform and offerings around the hyperledger architecture. or better or worse: IBM is into blockchain big time.
Today’s “find” in our daily scan of blockchain activities is a company called EncrypoTel – the idea is to offer secured voice over internet protocol (VOIP) communications for caller authentication and encrypted communications – for the general business market.
