If you’ve been following our blog, trends in logistics, or just the news in general, by now you know that blockchain is a big deal. Imagine a world in which all of your data is virtually unhackable, secure, and unable to be tampered with. Now imagine removing third-parties and their added costs entirely. You’re looking at higher profits, increased productivity, and fewer instances of unethical business or fraud due to the added transparency. That is the world with blockchain.

What’s Holding You Back from Adding Blockchain to Your Organization?

That said, leveraging blockchain for your organization is not always as easy as you might think. Historically, the only way for a company to directly interact with the Ethereum blockchain has been through the programming language Solidity. If you are a developer, the thought of learning Solidity is daunting, to say the least. It is notoriously complex and challenging, and adding it to your repertoire is a huge time commitment.

If your next thought is to hire an outside Solidity developer, you may want to rethink that as well. One of the biggest drawbacks to outsourcing to an external Solidity developer is that they are difficult to find and in high demand. If you are able to get your hands on one, you will be paying premium rates, and you have no way of gauging how seasoned he or she really is. So, what now?

Don’t Worry. You Aren’t Out of Options.

We realized that there was a need for people to be able to interact with the Ethereum blockchain quickly and easily, so we created the solution. Enter ShipChain’s backend services.

Now, if you have a developer with REST experience, he or she can use our API to post directly to the Ethereum blockchain. Regardless of whether your team uses PHP, Javascript, C#, Java, Python, or another programming language, you can now directly interact with the blockchain thanks to ShipChain’s backend services.

But let’s say you don’t have a developer on the team. Good news — we might be able to help you there as well. We also offer development consultations through which we can work with you directly to connect to our API. You can hire us for a day, a week, or if you need a little help setting up, by the hour.
