We blend tools, process, and prototyping to define new capabilities leveraging Blockchain, bringing fresh opportunities and ideas to a complex topic that few truly grasp. We collaborate with you and your organization to tackle challenges using Design Thinking to develop meaningful and impactful innovations.

Blockchain


The Internet is evolving from a web of information to an Internet of Value.

It's time to start imagining the possibilities that emerge when value can be sent like an e-mail. We think this has the potential to re-shape culture, change how economies function, and fundamentally affect governance.

When value is no longer limited to money, artificial borders and friction can be removed. Work, health and education can be revolutionised. A host of autonomous smart objects will go about their work without human interference – while putting us back in control of our own data and identities.

Design Thinking


We've crafted a new type of design process, specifically to work with Blockchain projects

The promise of blockchain technology is massive, but bringing this into reality is another matter. At What the Block, we use design to help you overcome “Technology FOMO”, to make sense of what this technology really is, and what it can do.

Our practice-oriented approach will help you ideate creatively, and prototype rapidly to develop projects which use the full potential of blockchain alongside other emerging technologies.
