Blockchain Companies - Rows 119-128

The companies listed in rows 119 to 128 of the attached spreadsheet have been researched and all publicly available information has been provided in columns D to H. For all entries of N/A, further information is provided in the methodology and summary sections below.

METHODOLOGY

A majority of the companies are not Blockchain companies and are either technology developers or platforms, so N/A has been entered into columns D and E and further information has been provided in the summary below. Furthermore, after an extensive search, there was no publicly available data pertaining to the company Common (in row 122), most likely due to the indistinguishable company name and it's absence from both the ICORating and CryptoCompare websites.

With regard to employee numbers, a range has been provided according to LinkedIn data, as prescribed in the spreadsheet to be the primary source. If an exact employee number has been stated in the company description, this figure has been entered. LinkedIn employee profile numbers have not been used as we have deemed them to be unreliable as there is a high possibility that not all employees currently have an active LinkedIn account and profile.

Please note, rows 127 and 128 name the same companies listed in rows 124 and 125, and are therefore duplicate entries. Consequently, "As above" has been entered into the appropriate cells on the attached spreadsheet.

Blockchain Companies - Rows 129-138

Rows 129 to 138, columns D to H of the attached spreadsheet have been completed. Only ArcBlock, Bitse (Qtum), Bloq (Metronome), and Centra have conducted Initial Coin Offerings. Below, I will present the results of the research.

ANZ

A search on ICORating and CryptoCompare and a general press search did not reveal any blockchain companies called ANZ. The search has led me to an article on Australian bank ANZ (and Westpac) partnering IBM and Scentre Group to use blockchain for bank guarantees on commercial property leasing. On its LinkedIn profile, Melbourne, Australia-based ANZ stated that it employs more than 50,000 people (46,010 employees listed on LinkedIn). ANZ is one of the five largest listed companies in Australia and number one bank in New Zealand.

ARCBLOCK

Seattle, Washington-based ArcBlock’s ICO closed on February 2, 2018. It has received a stable rating on ICORating. The company has nine employees listed on LinkedIn. ArcBlock claimed to be “the world’s first blockchain ecosystem for building and deploying decentralized applications.” It planned to become an open, foundational service of the new programmable society by 2022.

B9 LAB

An examination of London, United Kingdom-based B9 Lab’s corporate website, ICORating, and CryptoCompare revealed that the company had not conducted any ICO. The company has ten employees listed on its corporate website (9 employees listed on LinkedIn). B9lab provides education, advice, and research on blockchain technology and decentralized applications. Their clients include global institutions and independent developers around the world.

BITMARK

A cryptocurrency named “Bitmark” is listed on CryptoCompare, but neither its information nor rating is listed on other databases such as ICORating and ICOBench. A Bitcoin Exchange Guide article has noted that “there’s a cryptocurrency named “Bitmark” you can currently purchase on a small number of exchanges…However, that currency does not appear to be related to Bitmark [a blockchain startup] in any way.” Therefore, I have focused on providing information on Taipei, Taiwan-based blockchain startup Bitmark instead of the Bitmark cryptocurrency.
The company has raised $1.7 million in seed funding but has not released a whitepaper. Thus it has not conducted an ICO. The company has 17 employees listed on LinkedIn. Bitmark has described itself as “a blockchain startup defining a property for the digital environment by enabling issuance of property titles for digital assets.”

BITSE (QTUM)

A search for “Bitse” on ICORating and CryptoCompare did not reveal any results. A press search revealed that Bitse exists, but the links of its global and Chinese websites are broken. A further search also revealed that Qtum is connected to Bitse. According to Smith + Crown, Qtum was “incubated out of Bitse and has its full support for developers to work full-time on Qtum.” Therefore, I have focused on providing information on Qtum.
Singapore-based Qtum’s ICO was closed on March 19, 2017. Its rating is not listed on ICORating and CryptoCompare. ICOBench has provided a 4.1 expert rating. The company does not have a LinkedIn account but has listed 18 employees on its corporate website. Qtum’s goal is "to build decentralized applications that are executable on mobile devices and compatible with major existing blockchain ecosystems". It planned to do that by “combining a modified Bitcoin Core infrastructure with an intercompatible version of the Ethereum Virtual Machine.”

BLOCKO

An examination of Gyeonggi-do, South Korea-based Blocko’s corporate website, ICORating, and CryptoCompare revealed that the company had not conducted any ICO. The company has listed 17 employees on LinkedIn. Blocko provides customers with digital identity, signatures, and other blockchain-based services and applications. Their product, Coinstack, allows users to share data with third parties in a safe and efficient manner.

BLOQ (METRONOME)

On October 24, 2017, Chicago, Illinois-based Bloq announced that it would be launching Metronome, the first cross-blockchain cryptocurrency in the world. Metronome started its ICO on February 4, 2018, and is expected to close only on March 21, 2018. Thus, it has not received any rating. The company has listed 15 employees on Metronome’s corporate website. As Metronome is capable of being exported and imported across chains, it will allow users to “select the chain that suits their requirements for management and security, or even upgrade the MTN contract if needed.”

CALASTONE

An examination of London, United Kingdom-based Calastone’s corporate website, ICORating, and CryptoCompare revealed that the company had not conducted any ICO. The company has listed 142 employees on LinkedIn. Calastone’s global funds transaction network connects over 300 financial service organizations across 34 global markets. It planned to migrate its networks to a private and permission-based blockchain infrastructure by 2019.
