Life on Mars

Exploring blockchain technology

We’re a software team with sky-high standards and aspirations. Software is hard, and we know it takes curiosity, passion, discipline, and patience to get it right.

We’re currently running two startups: Fractal (B2B, blockchain tech, partners in Berlin) and Azelo (B2C, collectible art, partners in The Hague). We do it because it’s fun, and it affords us more independence than client work.

Community support is very important to us. We are proud to spend a significant portion of our time and revenue supporting and organizing events such as Make or Break, Commit, ENEI, Shift APPens, Porto Codes, and Conversas Em Código. Looking for support? Let us know!

We choose our clients well, and have been busy with all sorts of different challenges: original CS research, bespoke product development, interview design, and infrastructure optimization.

We’ve been working with blockchain tech since mid-2017 and are steadily building knowledge in the space, playing around with smart contracts, state channels, and doing original research.

Techs we use
Ruby, Rails, Elixir, Phoenix, React, Go, Ethereum, AWS, Terraform, Docker
