We're crypto ecosystem builders. We empower everyday individuals with peer-to-peer technology in addition to providing blockchain solutions to a wide variety of clients from standard corporations and foundations to DAOs and treasuries.
Our goal is to become one of the top blockchain development firms in the world, but not by creating the 10 millionth "novel" blockchain and starting from 0 as one may expect. Instead we are tackling real problems in existing ecosystems in top crypto projects, thereby addressing the real needs of users. As such we aren't reinventing the wheel but rather fortifying existing designs of the wheel and building out the rest of the car which makes the wheel actually useful.
Our founding team has combined over a decade of experience in blockchain development and producing products. The dcSpark team has proven deep knowledge in creating cryptographic libraries, ideation of protocols, etc.
