Startup Mobius Network launches ‘Stripe-like’ API for blockchain access
Through Mobius’s new API and application store, marketers can readily gain access to blockchain-based transparency and reward tokens.
As blockchain technology settles into becoming the backbone of a new software ecosystem, startups are beginning to work out ways of tying the new frontier to the old world.
One such startup, San Francisco-based Mobius Network, has recently launched a universal API that connects any application, website, web application, device or data source to a blockchain.
The offering is one of the first that can give marketers’ sites or applications ready access to blockchain-based tokens for customer rewards, and to blockchain-recorded transactional transparency.
CEO and co-founder David Gobaud told me he undertook this startup because, when he was developing a game, he envisioned utilizing blockchain-based tokens. But, he said, it required setting up “a massive infrastructure, [and] we get rid of that.”
