Very LLC Named Top 10 Blockchain Solution Provider

Wednesday, April 25, 2018

Very LLC announced it has been named one of the nation’s top 10 blockchain solution providers.  

Based in Chattanooga, Very is a product development firm with expertise in blockchain, IoT and machine learning. It is the only firm headquartered in the Southeast to rank in the top 10 on the list, which was curated by Enterprise Security Magazine.  

“We’re honored to be recognized for our work in this challenging and ever-evolving space,” said Tyler Jenks, co-founder and SVP of solutions architecture at Very. “As with all of our services, our goal is to leverage blockchain in a way that drives measurable results for clients. We’re excited to see where this work takes our firm — and the companies we serve — as blockchain continues to transform the way the world does business.” 

In recent years, Very has focused on cultivating an in-house team of U.S.-based, senior-level blockchain engineers. The firm is capable of handling every aspect of blockchain development — from writing smart contracts to front-end development to user experience optimization.  

Very has experience in building applications on multiple platforms and frameworks for businesses across regulated industries, including finance, manufacturing and healthcare.  

Recent and current blockchain development clients include BlockMason, a company that builds libraries, contracts, programs, and apps to support the blockchain ecosystem; and Gamma, a gamer-powered distributed computing ecosystem that aims to offer an Ethereum-backed blockchain. 

Demand for blockchain has experienced an uptick in the past 18 months, due largely to the explosion of Initial Coin Offerings. However, Very’s team is aware that blockchain isn’t the best solution for every project and offers blockchain consulting to assess client needs and evaluate whether blockchain is the right fit before moving forward.
