SAN FRANCISCO, CA — (January 17, 2020) – BRD, the most secure cryptocurrency mobile wallet, announced today a new enterprise-focused blockchain service, Blockset, which will fundamentally realign BRD’s business model for the high growth demands of the financial services and banking industry worldwide. This move builds on BRD’s deep expertise and trusted brand in blockchain security, privacy, and infrastructure innovation along with the strong market trends in the fast-growing enterprise blockchain industry.
Blockset is a robust blockchain data integration platform offering a suite of tools that will enable existing engineering teams to build enterprise-grade blockchain applications, access on-chain data through a single API, and write transactions in near real-time on multiple chains in a fraction of the time, for a fraction of the cost.
“BRD’s consumer business now supports and keeps safe over three million customers worldwide with $6B USD worth in crypto assets,” said Adam Traidman, CEO and co-founder of BRD. “Today’s financial environment is rapidly supporting crypto assets, and with 90% of major banks now exploring crypto, it’s clear that there’s a quiet groundswell of new initiatives and opportunities within the enterprise blockchain segment,” he added. “That is why we developed our own proprietary platform (Blockset) which banks, financial services, and large crypto companies will now be able to leverage to accelerate their time to market and deliver enterprise solutions to scale on a global basis for a fraction of the development costs.”
Key benefits of Blockset include:
- Accelerating the time to develop new blockchain products by automating on-chain data extraction, harmonizing and cleansing blockchain data, and delivering them into new enterprise crypto applications.
- Reduce the hosting costs and development costs associated with supporting blockchains by providing major chain support and node hosting ‘out-of-the-box.’
- Enable entirely new usage scenarios for all enterprises looking to consume blockchain data and write to blockchains for transactional application support.
Over 20 financial titans are already evaluating Blockset in a private pre-release program, including SBI Holdings, KPMG, and Ripple. BRD will also be bringing on key channel partners and global system integrators to accelerate Blockset adoption for the mega enterprises in the months to come.
Blockset is generally available worldwide starting today, with an initial focus on the existing financial and banking ecosystem, global accounting firms, and large blockchain enterprises, such as exchanges, new blockchains, and institutional custody services.
Major chain support is available now and into Q1 (Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Hedera, and Ethereum), with the top 15 chains being added by year-end 2020.
Existing BRD mobile app users will also be able to opt-in and enjoy the benefits of fast blockchain sync speeds and a higher level of usability thanks to Blockset.
“APIs are very critical to the future of financial services, especially in the nascent world of blockchain and cryptocurrency,” said Traidman. “We are incredibly excited to see how Blockset will enable both legacy financial institutions and new blockchain projects alike to create new and innovative offerings.”
