In a blockchain transaction, you don't have to trust your counterpart to perform their obligations. The code ensures that all participants of the network have the latest version of the ledger that contains only validated and audited data.



The distributed ledger and all the data is not owned or controlled by a central authority. The records on a blockchain are stored on every node of the network and verification comes from the consensus of multiple users.



Everything on the network has a digital record which means every process, transaction, task and payment is comprehensible to its users.



The records on a blockchain are secured using cryptography and each block is connected to all the blocks before and after it. In order for anyone to hack the system it would be necessary to change all blocks on every node.


Besides our consulting and investment services, Vertical Scale provides state-of-the-art technical and business education concerning various startup related topics ranging from workshops and conference contributions to detailed coding training for your company's individual needs.
