50 Most Valuable Brands Of The Year 2018

Where Blockchain and Business Begin: The Vanbex Group


We combine deep business insight with a strong understanding of how Blockchain technology can impact existing business infrastructure and operations: Kevin Hobbs.

The big buzz in disruptive technology for the last few years has been Bitcoin. This new currency holds the promise of lower transaction fees, easy person-to-person payments and even anonymity in the payments space.

But the real quantum shift, from a technology perspective, is blockchain. Blockchain is the underlying technology that allows Bitcoin to exist. While some people are still struggling to grasp the potential of blockchain, others have wholeheartedly embraced what the technology could mean for businesses, both large and small.

In light of the above mentioned, we are thrilled to present The Vanbex Group. The Group specializes in consulting, communications and development for blockchain businesses. It takes a tailored approach to shaping the future for every client it manages.

The company was establishedin 2013 and is headquarteredin Vancouver, Canada.

In Conversation with the CEO of The Vanbex Group, Kevin Hobbs:

Elaborate more on Vanbex group.

Vanbex is a full stack professional services and development company that specializes in the Blockchain industry. We help companies in everything from grass root marketing to branding, strategy, documentation, and to helping them with legal guidance. We also develop things like tokens, crowd funding contracts, Blockchain along with a full suite of services. Right now, we are trying to do token generating event and refunds.

Brief us about your first project.

Etherparty is the first project that we have worked on. It is a user-friendly deployment platform that allows anyone to create smart contracts on multiple different blockchains on ethereum or bitcoin with no coding necessary. You need to use a tool, kind of like how Gmail allows people to send and receive emails and Google allows you to search for things on the internet. Etherparty will allow anybody to launch customized smart contracts that fit their needs. Whether it’s peer-to-peer contracts, token creation, escrow, supply chain management, or legally binding contracts; users will be able to navigate through a typically coding-intensive process within minutes.

Can you talk about the challenges in this industry?

Since this industry is new, finding talents is a challenge. Finding people who understand blockchain and understand how to develop in blockchain coding languages is probably the biggest challenge we have faced. Furthermore, market entry is also a key struggle. There are not many blockchain products on the market yet and we are trying to be one of the first to launch it in the market this year.
