Blockchain is the buzzword of the year if not the decade. It is difficult to find any tech headlines without reading about blockchain and its transformative effect. Back in January, we wrote about the some of the hottest blockchain startups to watch in 2018. The post was well-received. Ever since, we’ve received thousands of requests from our readers to provide a comprehensive list of blockchain startups. Now, we’re fulfilling your requests by creating a dedicated page for all the blockchain. Shoot us an email if you know of any blockchain startup you’d like us to add to the list. We plan to constantly update the list as we receive new information.
