#blockchain

Since the concept of blockchain was first described in 2008 in connection with the cryptocurrency Bitcoin, it has caused quite a stir. Blockchain has become a buzzword, appears as probably one of the biggest novelties of our time and is hyped accordingly. And as befits a hype, the topic of blockchain is overestimated by many in the short term, but probably underestimated in the long run. 


Contrary to the frequent association with bitcoins, the technology holds more potential than "just" for speculation with cryptocurrencies. In a wide variety of industries, long-term opportunities to implement new business models arise. This does not mean that companies should gear their operations to blockchain overnight in order to capitalize on the hype. It means that you should keep an eye on the technology, build up a basic understanding of it and develop a strategy that suits your company so that no disadvantages arise in the long term. Although the development is still in its infancy despite the hype, it seems clear that blockchain will change how we transfer and manage value. It is therefore worthwhile to find out in which cases the application is useful.


Have you always wanted to know if and how your company can benefit from blockchain technology? Whether you can save time and costs by using blockchain and offer real added value to the users?

We help you answer these questions. We advise clients from all industries strategically, conceptually and technically in the area of blockchain-based projects.
Our focus lies on individual clients and their specific needs. We do not present highly speculative trading strategies for cryptocurrencies, but analyze the benefits of blockchain holistically for our clientele. Our goal is to deliver real value to your business - long-term and sustainable.

Workshop: Understanding Blockchain-Technology

Hardly anyone has been able to avoid the topic of blockchain in recent years. It is probably one of the most used buzzwords in the digital sector, if not at all. Yet there are only a few who really understand the topic. We help you to reduce the complexity behind the topic and to create an understanding.

In a blockchain 101 workshop or a dedicated consultation, we introduce you to the topic. What is a blockchain? How does it work? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the technology?

After the blockchain basics "DeFi", "Hodl", "Buidl" & Co. should no longer be just funny-sounding trend words.

A certain understanding of the concept of blockchain is essential, even as a non-techie, in order to be able to classify the fundamental (added) values that the technology brings with it and to be able to assess whether an application makes sense in one's own case.


Goals of the Blockchain Tech Basics Workshop are:

Understanding the level of technologies:

  • How do distributed transaction systems work?
  • How does the blockchain work?

Understanding the level of protocols:

  • Platforms and protocols
  • Tokens and cryptocurrencies

Understanding the layer of applications:

  • What are smart contracts? 
  • What is an initial coin offering? 
  • What are decentralized applications (dApps)?

Recognize Opportunities and Potentials of the Blockchain

The joint evaluation of a possible business logic takes place in one or more workshops and market analyses. It is important to avoid the mistake of simply trying to capitalize on the blockchain hype by reengineering a product "just" to make it blockchain compatible. This will fail in most cases.

Together with our customers, we develop meaningful blockchain use cases and select the appropriate technological infrastructure. The consulting includes specific applications of blockchain in companies and markets: 

  • Potential analysis - what opportunities and potential does the blockchain offer my company today and in the near future?
  • Market analysis: how will the blockchain change our market?
  • How will the blockchain influence the expectations and behavior of my target customers?
  • Can I use blockchain technology as another element of my digital transformation?

Apps with love Implements Comprehensive Blockchain Applications for Existing or New Business Models

As a full-service agency, we accompany you from the exact definition of the use case, the proof of concept to the technical realization and implementation of the smart contract and the corresponding setup of the blockchain node. We cover the entire value chain, so that our customers have a reliable partner by their side the whole way.

Our focus and biggest expertise is on the Ethereum Blockchain including smart contract implementations of any kind. This also includes the area of second layer solutions (e.g. optimistic/ZK rollups), sidechains (e.g. xDai) or private Ethereum solutions. However, we are also open to other blockchain solutions and quickly learn their peculiarities. Which one is the best solution has to be evaluated and decided in each use case. 

Apps with love can design smart contracts for you, write them on Ethereum, implement the audit with partners and then execute them productively. We can also build so-called decentralised Apps (dApps) , where an app can interact directly with the blockchain. We can help you build your own blockchain infrastructure: nodes, RPC or API gateway for communication with the blockchain among other things. In addition, we can "fork" existing blockchain solutions for you and "tweak" and launch them with their requirements.


As a partner of Blockchain Trust Solutions AG and member of the Bitcoin Association Switzerland, we can count on an extensive network of experts in addition to internal specialists. 

Smart Contracts

Smart contracts are electronic contracts based on software that automate business processes legally and securely, even between partners. Smart contracts are based on blockchain technology and use advantages such as forgery protection, transparency and high availability.

Smart contracts are therefore an important cornerstone of many blockchain solutions. The holy grail is a smart contract that consistently maps the entire business logic and at the same time has no security holes that can be exploited by an attacker. We know from years of experience how challenging this can be. That's why we're happy to help you develop your smart contract or check it for vulnerabilities and security holes.

Smart contracts are also used in the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT connects various devices with each other via the Internet. This enables them to exchange data and communicate with each other. With the use of smart contracts, the exchange of data can be controlled. They enable the processing of automatic transactions from end devices, such as purchase contracts or billing.

Challenges in Blockchain Projects

In quite a few areas, a planned blockchain solution involves the interaction between the on-chain data (e.g. number of digital shares) with the off-chain world (e.g. an app). This linkage between on-chain & off-chain world is often challenging. 

Furthermore, security in terms of private keys or smart contracts is a challenge. In the blockchain world, there is one important rule: code is law. If a smart contract becomes executable, then this cannot be undone. Therefore, it is elementary that the business logic and all security aspects are seriously verified by a third party before the smart contract is executed. 

We are happy to master these challenges together with our customers and partners.
