Nexledger Universal

Enterprise-ready blockchain platform

Blockchain made fast and easy

Nexledger's standard service API allows you to focus on creating business value without worrying about choosing decentralized consensus technologies for various blockchain. Not only can customers configure their own blockchain network, but they can also quickly utilize the blockchain features they want through a BaaS(Blockchain-as-a-Service) subscription.

Major Services

Efficient development is possible by providing various blockchain cores as APIs

  • Customers to use blockchain platform 217 or more
  • Blockchain technology used for PoC Global Top 7 (Gartner, 2019)
  • Global top 50 companies in blockchain Selected 3 years in a row (Forbes, 2019-2021)
