Wallet.Services is a global blockchain development company, rooted in Scotland. We streamline, simplify and secure digital life and business by accelerating the use and harnessing the benefits of distributed ledger technology (DLT) across society and commerce. We do R&D and thought leadership – we authored Distributed Ledger Technologies in the Public Sector for The Scottish Government.
We also speak a lot and build awareness around DLT through workshops. But the core of what we do is developing our SICCAR blockchain toolkit, already released in alpha to public and private sector clients, empowering them to build real-world solutions for their sectors on blockchain technology. Our approach to simplifying blockchain accelerates adoption of this transformative technology at every level. For the individual, blockchain can secure and simplify the process of paying taxes, applying for a mortgage or a citizen benefit. For society, it secures record keeping and provides transparency around data sharing between local authorities and government agencies. For business, blockchain is the bridge that fills the current IT and trust gap, enabling co-operation in a competitive environment. On a global level, DLT is needed for international collaboration on climate change, security and trade. Blockchain’s transformative technology is the missing link needed to bring integrity and control to digital life and business.
Wallet.Services is a global company, rooted in Scotland. Our aim is to streamline, simplify and secure digital life by accelerating the use, and harnessing the benefits, of Blockchain technology across society.
Blockchain’s transformative technology is the missing link needed to bring integrity and control to your digital life. It does so in a way that is safe and secure, yet transparent, sustainable and democratic.
So far, the internet has not lived up to these expectations of trust through mutual consent. People and their data are not protected. Complexity and lack of integrity slow down the commerce. Our digital life doesn’t fit together securely.
These fundamental issues stand in the way of streamlining and securing our world.
Blockchain addresses this by making data storage, sharing and protection cyber secure.
Our team have engineering expertise, business integrity, practical experience and credibility. At the heart of this combined knowledge lies steadfast commitment to quality and robust system security. Essential to this is the need to build with integrity and longevity to solve fundamental problems and safeguard lives and livelihoods.
Inherent in our ethos, we enjoy an open and human approach with clients, partners and colleagues. Independently-minded, free-thinking and socially responsible, we take the longer view to makes a real and sustainable difference.
We are building a natively digital and safer world, for now and generations to come.
