Legal Counsel

Hong Kong | Legal

Block.one is a software publisher and the leader in high performance blockchain technologies. In 2018, we released EOSIO, an open-source blockchain protocol designed to enable secure data transfer and high-performance decentralized applications.  EOSIO is regarded as the fastest, most scalable, most active blockchain software in the world.  It addresses the limitations of first-generation blockchain platforms while retaining the core benefits of the technology: security, accountability, and immutability. Our latest product, Voice, aims to redefine social media by cultivating creation, sharing, discovery and promotion of content by real users.  We further encourage a robust blockchain ecosystem through developing and supporting projects built on EOSIO via our venture capital unit, EOS VC.

We continue to look for ways to apply our software and blockchain expertise in a wide range of industries and through various business models.  We have offices in Hong Kong and the United States and we recruit world-class globally-minded talent to help us develop creative solutions based on the latest technological innovations and trends.
