Before we begin, we are still hunting for a Principal Software Engineer in North America. So if you know anyone who might be a fit, please encourage them to apply.

Now, on to the news! In this edition of the Weekly Update, we show off our new website, share the need for Blockmason's Credit Protocol and more!

Supreme Court's Ruling Proves The Need For Blockmason's Credit Protocol

This week, the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of American Express in one of its many legal battles.

What you may not be aware of is that these companies fight a LOT of cases in the courts. And most of these battles are over the fees that they charge their customers, their merchants, or both.

Blockmason's Credit Protocol can solve a lot of the issues with major credit card companies, including data privacy, lower fees, and no downtime.

Check out the full article on why the Credit Protocol is superior to the major credit card networks.


How Emerging Tech Vendors are Taking on Blockchain

Last week CMS Wire wrote about how companies like Blockmason aim to provide solutions that help blockchain participants react to market needs faster and more effectively.

They also point to some possible future uses of blockchain technology, and how any business, startup or development team who wants to use it to solve a credit problem can use the Credit Protocol to do so.
