BRD, a $100 million startup, recently revealed that it was collaborating with leading firms in the crypto space that would work with their enterprise blockchain solutions. Through the partnerships, the company will release a new set of tools that will allow major enterprises to create blockchain applications.  

The Mission of BRD

BRD has been focusing its efforts on leading firms in the financial world such as Fidelity Investments, Deloitte, and KPMG. These companies use the Blockset platform to create the crypto infrastructure needed by large financial institutions.

The tools announced by BRD come a few months after the US Office of the Comptroller of Currency announced that US banks could hold crypto for their customers. Since then, various companies have turned to Blockset to build the infrastructure needed to enable them to offer these services. BRD’s mission is to make crypto more accessible on a global scale. 

The Launch of Blockset

BRD launched the Blockset platform in January 2020. It is designed for large enterprises that want to use the blockchain to securely move and store data. The company recently revealed that it was collaborating with major players in the crypto sector to boost the robustness of these tools.

New Partnerships

On Blockset, companies can use the API to enable them to use the blockchain for things such as securing land title registrations or funds transfers. The company is collaborating with leading firms in the crypto space such as Unbound Tech, CipherTrace, Chainalysis, and Elliptic. It will allow firms to integrate AML technology, thus helping them remain compliant.

During an interview with Business Insider, Adam Traidman, the BRD CEO, said that users of the BRD platform would be able to create blockchain tools that they can offer their customers.

According to him, the goal of BRD is to have the tools developed within Blockset platform act as the building blocks of the technology these firms use to create blockchain solutions for their customers

Why Enterprises Would Want Blockchain Solutions

There are numerous reasons why enterprises would want to deploy blockchain solutions. One of them is security. Companies can use the technology to securely share data or initiate funds transfers. Besides that, they can use the technology to track art pieces and music, ensuring there are no copyright violations. Another application could be preventing voter fraud. The USPS has already filed a patent for voting technology that leverages blockchain technology.

One of the companies already using BRD’s tools is KPMG. The company is creating a product known as Chain Fusion. The solution allows financial firms to manage the crypto holdings of their clients securely, which includes fraud litigation.  

With the tools developed by BRD, KPMG could enjoy the benefits of the blockchain without the need for hiring domain experts and starting the process from ground level. As more companies form partnerships with firms working on the blockchain, it will help to make blockchain technology the norm in all aspects of normal life.

How the BRD Business Model Works

Companies that wish to use BRD’s tools pay for a monthly subscription. For each API call, BRD charges firms a penny. Thus far, over a thousand developers have signed up for the Blockset platform since its launch in January 2020.
