Rationalising blockchain’s increased focus on enterprise

FYI, this story is more than a year old

Blockchain has been around for a while now, yet many people and organisations still write it off as cryptocurrency jargon, without a real understanding of how it can impact their business.

Thus blockchain companies have started to rebrand and refocus on the enterprise to showcase why blockchain is more than just bitcoin.

One such company is GoChain who recently rebranded aiming to peek enterprise interest.

GoChain announced the commercial availability of technical support and professional services for companies building on the GoChain public network and for companies using GoChain for a private blockchain network.

GoChain is an open source, enterprise blockchain platform that is supposedly compatible with Ethereum while having a higher throughput and more reliable transactions.

GoChain co-founder Travis Reeder says, "We've always been enterprise focused and now we're taking it to the next level.

“We've hit every milestone we set out to achieve in year one, and now we're going to provide the service and support our users are demanding.

“GoChain has performed extremely well in a public, decentralized network and since it is a permissioned blockchain, it is also perfect for private networks."

GoChain services and support supposedly include workshops and training, consulting services to help companies build their blockchain projects and support plans to give companies direct access to the GoChain team with quick response times.

GoChain also announced a rebranding with a new logo and new website.

GoChain CEO Jason Dekker says, "Our new branding and Enterprise service offerings much better reflect our growth and evolution in the Blockchain space.

“We're proud of what we've accomplished in a year and we are looking ahead to a bright future for GoChain."

GoChain has built a first full-service, enterprise-grade public blockchain protocol based on the web3 industry standard.

It is supposedly the only network protocol that offers Enterprise level support, high transaction speeds, and upgradeable smart contracts.

Other blockchain protocols have supposedly been hamstrung by high latency, high fees, lack of adoption, and sacrifice scale for excessive decentralisation.

GoChain Enterprise Services aims to provide enterprise-level consulting, training and support with the goal of implementing and architecting blockchain solutions.
