The blockchain is undoubtedly one of the revolutionary technologies and that’s why plenty of startups and enterprises are working on their own blockchain solution. As a blockchain technology domain player, how has Soulstice Software Solutions is placed in this market?
At Soulstice we have proactively adopted the technology, implemented use-cases, and built our own solution. Soulstice started blockchain practice 3 years back based on various technologies like Ethereum platform and Hyperledger from the IBM side.

Initially, we started as a service provider on Blockchain and gradually started to deliver few solutions to automobile industry clients in Africa as well as other states. While delivering blockchain, we built a product called Fliptin, one of our sister companies. We kept it independent because we wanted to carry it as a service delivery model. Soulstice has absolute expertise in developing customizable solutions using the Ethereum platform for clients in various industry verticals. And this is added to us having developed our own state-of-the-art product.

Smart Contracts are virtual contracts, formed by using Blockchain Technology, and their strength lies in security, reliability, and incorruptibility.

product based on our expertise. We provide benefits to customers through our smart contract thereby giving them a secure and efficient way to protect their data. Again, these contracts are paper-free which means all records are stored permanently in the network. And, even if the data is lost, which is rare, it can be easily retrieved. Since it is code-based and automated, it reduces the time and cost of processing the contract. More so, it has hardly any human intervention. There is hardly any scope for errors, and being visible to both the parties, the transparency gets involved in contractual agreement.

Kindly brief us about Soulstice’s Hyperledger Blockchain technology and how does it help customers to build decentralized enterprise applications.

Soulstice’s experts help you build decentralized enterprise applications using Hyperledger. On hyperledger, we help the clients to track all the records from production to purchase process.

What further innovation do you plan to include in your blockchain technology offerings?

Further, we intend to come up with a convergence solution for the client. It’s not just the blockchain that we are going to develop, we will project on IoT too.
