About Us

Web3.0 is about opportunity, and putting humans first. We believe everyone in the world benefits when they have a chance to reach their individual potential.

Our Story

Blockchain is for everyone.

GoodBlock Technologies was founded with the belief that blockchain is for everyone.
Our goal is to give individuals the tools to better empower themselves in order to come together to solve global problems such as climate change.

GoodBlock Technologies founder and CEO, Douglas Horn, has worked with distributed ledger technology (DLT) since its early stages, and was well versed in the challenges it faced before mainstream adoption was possible.

In 2017, it was clear the eosio open source technology would enable tremendous advancement in blockchain’s ability to empower people. Shortly after, Douglas wrote a whitepaper that sparked a whole new community to build a network that would make the most of the eosio protocol. The Telos Blockchain is one of the first DLT networks building the backbones of Web3.0 enabling real-world use of DLT in everyday life.

We have never lost sight of the original vision. The world needs a new way for people to come together, and govern themselves. GoodBlock is bringing these together in the foundational technologies of Web3.
