On Sept. 21, Block0, a leading blockchain consulting and development company, announced that it is becoming a corporate baker on Tezos. Through their new position as baker, Block0 will now validate transactions (blocks) and add them to the Tezos blockchain.
Block0 is among the first firms dedicated to blockchain technology in Wallonia, working within the market since 2017. With active clients within the energy, agri-food, logistics, and software development sectors, the firm has been providing decentralized solutions, in order to apply them to traceability, logistics, and identification of things and people. Block0 has built several industrial applications that address the need for secure and transparent traceability in supply chains.
Today, Block0 joins forces with the Tezos network, as it is gaining enormous adoption and interest from customers looking at processing large amounts of information with speed, energy efficiency, and low cost, as well as the security of an evolutive blockchain.
Tezos is one of the original Proof-of-Stake layer one blockchain networks. The Tezos ecosystem is built on low-gas fees, cross-chain utility, yield farming protocols, efficient DEXs, bustling NFT platforms, and more. With over 3.2 million contract calls in August, Tezos is one of the fastest-growing blockchain ecosystems. On Tezos, developers are able to easily build powerful decentralized applications and products. Projects and brands such as Red Bull Racing Honda, McLaren Racing, OneOf, Ubisoft, Interpop, Hic-Et-Nunc, and more have chosen to build on the Tezos blockchain.
Upgrades on Tezos are made possible by its proven on-chain governance where continuous improvements are proposed by participants on the network, voted on, adopted, and deployed without the need to rely on hard forks. This upgrade mechanism minimizes disruptions while offering regular upgradability and enhanced functionality over time. So far, Tezos has undergone seven network upgrades that have reduced gas fees by 70%, improved token standards, increased transaction speed, and more.
Sebastien Pirlet, Block0 representative, added: “With Tezos, we are now targeting large corporate players with a proven track record and a reassuring blockchain ecosystem. It is the key to deploying this technology in Belgium.”
Alexia Martinel, Adoption Manager in Belgium at Nomadic Labs, commented: “We are particularly delighted to welcome the first Belgian corporate baker to the Tezos ecosystem; thus paving the way for a growing commitment from the country’s institutional players.”
Created in 2017, Block0 was the first Walloon software company fully dedicated to blockchain and decentralized solutions. Its main customers are players within the energy, agri-food, logistics, and software development sectors, for whom it develops document traceability tools and identity-related systems.
Block0 is also very active in research and development, with recurrent support from the European Union through several European grants and prizes for the quality of its developments and its innovation in the field of traceability supported by IoT and blockchain, and document delivery by delegation. The firm is currently working on a new application, combining traceability and social communication for small and large retailers. This new product is called ‘ShoppEx’, for Shopping Experience.
