- July 26th, 2018

The market has responded positively to cryptocurrency and blockchain stocks over the past month. AXS Blockchain Solutions Inc., (CSE:BAXS) (FRA:C0B), a leading blockchain technology company that provides blockchain solutions and consulting, has made two large moves in response to industry movement.

The market has responded positively to cryptocurrency and blockchain stocks over the past month. The majority of the industry has experienced double-digit growth as Bitcoin prices continue to stabilize following the initial dropoff that the industry experienced throughout Q1 2018. With prices on the rise again, many of the largest companies in the industry are making moves that will allow them to diversify the services they offer.

One such company, AXS Blockchain Solutions Inc., (CSE:BAXS) (FRA:C0B), a leading blockchain technology company that provides blockchain solutions and consulting, has made two large moves in response to industry movement. Their first move was signing an LOI to hire Blockchain Foundry to develop ZUBX, an innovative and secure P2P cryptocurrency marketplace. While their second move has seen them set their sights on the $1.5 trillion shipping industry with their recent $4 million acquisition of Chainlinks Lab and their 1Shift Logistics platform. The acquisition will provide the company with a valuable asset that allows them to directly target the logistics and shipping industry.

“The acquisition of Chainlinks allows AXS Blockchain to dive deep into the trillion dollar logistics industry.”
– Mo Ahmad, AXS Blockchain CEO
“I’ve spent the last two decades working with enterprise clients to select and implement large-scale software platforms to maximize return and minimize risks,” said Ashik Karim, Founder and CEO of Chainlinks. “With all the marketing and hype, Chainlinks was born with the mandate to identify and deliver on real business use cases that fulfill the promises of enterprise blockchain.”

According to industry experts, the shipping industry loses nearly $30 billion per year to cargo theft and fraud. Additionally, high fees caused by intermediary parties force shipping companies to mark up their prices by nearly 20%, passing nearly all of these costs on to consumers.

AXS Blockchain’s latest acquisition shows that they are focused on simplifying the logistics process through the use of smart contracts, the same technology that backs the Ethereum blockchain. These types of smart contracts are nearly impossible to alter or hack as they take advantage of blockchain technology which relies on multiple verifications throughout every step of a transaction.

UPS, one of the largest shipping companies in the world, is betting big on blockchain technology as well and has openly admitted that it will play a large role in redefining the way the logistics industry handles shipments.

“With the advent of the blockchain, AI cognitive search, and smart contracts, there is a great opportunity to simplify, streamline, and create transparency in the supply chain.”
– Mo Ahmad, AXS Blockchain CEO
“Blockchain has multiple applications in the logistics industry, especially related to supply chains, insurance, payments, audits and customs brokerage,” said Linda Weakland, UPS director of enterprise architecture and innovation. “The technology has the potential to increase transparency and efficiency among shippers, carriers, brokers, consumers, vendors and other supply chain stakeholders.”

The 1Shift platform utilizes smart contracts to vastly improve the efficiency of logistics, telecommunications, payment, and billing systems. These contracts eliminate the need for intermediary parties, they reduce fraud by verifying and legitimizing contracts using the blockchain, and they improve the speed and transparency at which these transactions can take place. Not surprisingly, the shipping industry is ripe with inefficiency, fraud, and costly delays due to the legacy systems that most of these companies currently rely on.

“Utilizing a mix of these technologies in a revolutionary eco-system can solve real-time tracking and tracing issues, live escalation updates to mitigate downtime, and simpler payment settlements to name a few.”
– Mo Ahmad, AXS Blockchain CEO
AXS Blockchain’s acquisition of Chainlinks and their 1Shift platform is an essential one that will provide the company with the tools it needs to target some of the largest industries on the market. Through this acquisition, they will be able to help companies eliminate outdated legacy systems that heavily rely on costly manual logging, tracking, and implementation. The 1Shift Platform is feature-rich and capable of solving many of the pain points that companies are experiencing.

“The acquisition of Chainlinks allows AXS Blockchain to dive deep into the trillion dollar logistics industry. With the advent of the blockchain, AI cognitive search, and smart contracts, there is a great opportunity to simplify, streamline, and create transparency in the supply chain. Utilizing a mix of these technologies in a revolutionary eco-system can solve real-time tracking and tracing issues, live escalation updates to mitigate downtime, and simpler payment settlements to name a few,” stated AXS Blockchain CEO, Mo Ahmad, in regards to the acquisition.

With the rapid growth in blockchain technologies almost certain, companies with first-mover advantage are guaranteed to benefit from it the most. AXS Blockchain seems ready to capitalize on this growth with their two recent moves.
