Razormind, the group behind the DeOS project, have opened their new headquarter in Belfast. This location was not chosen randomly, as the company’s physical presence is located next to the City Hall. This means the team now has offices in five different countries, which seems to indicate their dedication to building a new blockchain solution.
Razormind Opens New Offices In Belfast
At the same time, Razormind also opened their first Blockchain Lab in Belfast as well. By working together with local universities, brilliant minds can focus on creating new blockchain use cases. Among the use cases being explored are banking, payments, enterprise, and industry solutions. The blockchain can be applied to just about anything in our daily lives, albeit much research and development are needed.
Razormind Director Phil Sturgeon told the media:
“We are thrilled to be in Belfast, there’s a lot of talent here and as a local myself, born and bred, I have a particular interest in developing the city. Razormind is grounded in the principle that blockchain is for everyday use and should be easy and open. Our new blockchain lab will give the city access to the business intelligence we’ve built up across the world.”
Moreover, the company is partnering with the Northern Ireland Bitcoin Association. As a result, common services will be provided to the community, all of which will promote blockchain technology. Additionally, there is a plan on the table to add more Bitcoin ATMs to strategic locations around the city.
Some people may recall the Razormind name, as they are working on DeOS. This Ethereum “competitor” serves as a decentralized operating system. For now, the release date of this project is set at October 10th. By using a modified blockchain, storing data is done in a safe and secure environment.
By the look of things, the Razormind team is on the right track to achieve great success. With the release of DeOS on the horizon, things are bound to get very exciting in the blockchain world. Northern Ireland is quickly becoming a hotspot for blockchain innovation, which is a positive trend for Europe.
