When Will the Crypto Industry Finally Grow Up?

Bitcoin showed us that borders don’t matter anymore and that investing can be fairer, more transparent and overall better.

Lower the barriers, make it fair and let everyone participate. No opening hours, no closed trading. Instead, 24/7, 365 days a year availability.

Today, as digital assets are becoming more and more mainstream, it’s getting clear that the days of the Wild West are over. The industry needs to grow up and offer users products they understand and regulators partners they are willing to work with.

Because people will never fully understand Bitcoin. But they understand financial freedom.

A Real-World Blockchain Use-Case that Increased Net Margins by +8% in a Matter of Months

At Artos Systems, we work on changing the way organisations work together by acting as the Bridge to Blockchain® and other deep technologies. We believe that enterprise-grade Blockchain technology will revolutionise cross-business processes. It will do this in the same way that Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems transformed the industry by reducing manual labour and simplifying existing business workflows.

The most recent adoption of our enterprise-grade Blockchain technology is a business case that was previously unachievable with other technologies. It pertains to processing and representing value transfer, where Artos Systems deployed successfully with global leaders in Retail across 8 different territories. This resulted in extraordinary gains in the efficiency of back-office processes, a drastic reduction in balance-sheet liabilities, and the creation of new revenue and growth opportunities. It ultimately increased the participating business’ net margins by over 8% in a matter of months.
