We’ve seen the ups and downs cryptocurrencies had in past few months. Bitcoin’s price zoomed past 8,926 Euros at the end of November last year. It soared more than 1,000 percent since the start of 2017, however, it’s current price hovers around 5800 Euros. Surprisingly, the main technology these cryptocurrencies use is the Blockchain (a distributed online ledger of records) which is on a steady rise. Big corporations, as well as startups, continue to innovate and release new use cases of the technology. Unchain.io, an Amsterdam-based Blockchain startup, recently released early-access to an enterprise Blockchain-integration platform.
The core product is a gateway: computer software which integrates different applications and services that developers can use to connect their existing applications and devices with multiple blockchain networks. Unchain is led by Arjeh van Oijen, a graduate of Eindhoven University of Technology and an alumnus of IBM Global Business Services group. He’s joined by Marcel Makken as a co-founder. An early win for Unchain is the inclusion of Blockchain investor Han de Groot, an early investor in Filecoin that went on to raise €208M during its ICO (a form of crowdfunding used by Blockchain projects).
