The ultimate guide to start your own blockchain startup!

Today, everyone is talking about blockchain, but there are a few who can really understand this technology and the potential it holds in the near future. Blockchain technology has already proved to be a game-changer in various sectors. Whether you are planning to build your own blockchain-based startup or bring Blockchain technology into your existing business ecosystem, it can do wonders only if you understand its capabilities, benefits, and uses.

Unless one gets an idea of what these “immutable, publicly distributed ledgers are and how they work,” it’s going to be difficult to explore the kind of opportunities it has in store for them and their business growth. 


A blockchain is essentially a shared, distributed ledger, or database that records all transactions and tracks assets related to all parties involved in a business network. A blockchain maintains a continuously growing list of ordered records, called blocks and each block can be thought of as a page of a ledger. As assets move from one place to another or as the ownership changes hands, the blocks form a chain of data. The blocks convey the accurate time and sequence of transactions. These blocks are securely linked together, therefore, no alterations between the blocks can be made, which delivers the key strength of immutability. 

The chain continues to grow as miners discover new blocks and add them to the existing blockchain. Each transaction is sent over the network via encrypted communication, while miners validate new transactions and record them on the global ledger. Miners compete to solve a difficult mathematical problem based on a cryptographic hash algorithm 

 (i.e., Proof-of-Work or Proof-of-Stake) and convert transactions into blocks. Miners earn rewards from mining in two ways, (i) new coins are created with each new block, or (ii) transaction fees from all the transactions included in the block. 

The most significant feature of keeping data on Blockchain is that no participant can change or tamper with a transaction after it’s been recorded in the shared ledger.

What do blockchain startups do?

A Blockchain Startup is a company that develops innovative products and services using blockchain technology. At present, Blockchain technology is changing the world from the healthcare industry to government agencies, and even spiking the interests of individual investors. While many blockchain startups are based in the United States and Europe today, the industry is also spreading to other corridors around the world, such as Asia and Africa. Some of the most successful enterprise blockchain startups include Ripple, Blockstream, BitFury, and Chainalysis.


Blockchain technology is revolutionizing – how we store and share information, conduct transactions, and build trust between players in the system. Today, all organizations run on information, the more accurate and readily available it is, the better it is for any system that is expecting transparency and growth in the way they work.  

Blockchain technology delivers immediate and transparent information, on an immutable ledger. The data stored in the blocks are safe, accurate, and secured with a single view of the truth for all the permissioned members of the network.  These factors bring in an exciting opportunity because it is fully digital, agnostic to a central authority, easily suitable, and, most importantly, immutable. The protocols and mechanisms used in blockchain improve security and reliability. These properties of blockchain technology can be used to great effect in a variety of industries, impacting the way information is used to conduct business, conduct transactions, and establish trust between actors in building systems. 

Blockchain technology is going to bring a paradigm shift in how organizations work today  as it’s a digitized, verifiable, decentralized, immutable ledger.


Blockchain is a game-changing technology. By 2030, businesses are projected to adopt them as the fundamental technology to run their businesses. From healthcare to energy to the education sector, almost all industries are embracing it to improve safety, and efficiency, bringing transparency and trust into their work environment.

*Blockchain Market value was $4.9 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $67.4 billion by 2026, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 68.4% during the forecast period.


If you want to expand your horizons and make a livelihood through a blockchain business or aim to develop software/applications on a blockchain framework, there are a few steps you can keep in mind:

Do your own research, educate yourself or find blockchain consultants

The blockchain technology has been here for a long while and many tech enthusiasts have made it the subject of their expertise. There are various articles, use cases, tutorials, and published papers available on the internet.

Recently, there has been the deployment of many interesting layer-1 solutions like Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Cardano, Solana, Polkadot, EOS, and some layer-2 (a blockchain that confirms transactions faster and cheaper than a layer-1 blockchain network) solutions like Polygon (Matic), Elrond, Lightning. 

As new platforms are emerging, new features and releases also make their way into the blockchain industry at a rapid pace. Ambitious businesses are eager to stay ahead of the curve given its disruptive potential.

Introduce yourself to the Investors
