A Northern Ireland tech start-up specialising in blockchain technology, rubbed shoulders with Blockchain and Web3 experts from across the globe at a prestigious international awards ceremony earlier this month.

Banbridge-based ubloquity, which recently celebrated its first anniversary, was one of two runners up in the Enterprise Transformation Award category at the Web3 & Blockchain Transformation (W3B) Awards in Toronto, Canada.

Agri-food and retail sectors

ubloquity specialises in building blockchain platforms and solutions to enable smart borders, frictionless trade and provenance, working across multiple sectors including agri-food, pharma, retail and government. In just over 12 months, the company has signed an exclusive contract with Fujitsu to be its smart border blockchain partner, and quadrupled in size, expanding from a local team of four to an international team of 16.

The awards gala, hosted by Bloomberg Markets Anchor Jon Elrichman, was an exclusive, sold-out event honouring the foremost leaders, researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, and service providers driving global blockchain transformation. The celebration followed a conference featuring an all-star roster of 90 plus speakers, covering topics including leadership, identity, supply chains, planet sustainability, and the metaverse.

Digital solutions for food supply chains

Dom Burch, Communications Director at ubloquity travelled to Toronto for the awards and conference. Dom said: “It was a great privilege – and a little daunting! – to be in the company of such a prestigious group of leaders and innovators. One of the key themes of the two-day conference was around digital solutions for food supply chains and the movement of goods across borders – the core of what we do at ubloquity.

“The awards and conference were a great opportunity to hear from other leaders in blockchain and make new connections with like-minded organisations. I’d like to thank the team at the Blockchain Research Institute for putting on such a stand-out event. We were overjoyed to be recognised as one of the three finalists in our category.”
