Transform your business through blockchain

We put blockchain developers and strategists by your side

BlockFirst from ArcTouch helps companies transform their business processes through blockchain decentralized apps and ledger technology. Our team of experts help businesses with blockchain strategy, architecture, design, and developing working proof-of-concept (POC) decentralized applications (DApps) for leading blockchain platforms, including Ethereum, Stellar, and Hyperledger.


“Most companies today embrace the concept of mobile first. The goal of BlockFirst is to challenge those same companies to think blockchain first — to enable new processes and offerings for their customers, partners, and employees.”
— ArcTouch CEO Eric N. Shapiro

Blockchain services tailored for your needs


From blockchain business opportunity analysis to ideation sessions and even deep-dive technology workshops, we have blockchain developers ready to explore all of your blockchain opportunities.


Starting with a proof of concept (PoC), our blockchain developers will help architect a scalable, secure production blockchain solution capable of delivering bottom-line business value.


So your blockchain proof of concept was a success, now what? The BlockFirst team is here to lead your way to implementation and operational success — from secure, scalable commercial deployments to ICOs.

Why use a blockchain?

Most centralized business applications suffer from security breaches, network downtime, and a large capital investment to host their business applications and services. Blockchain technologies use a decentralized network infrastructure that provides the functionality and scalability to handle the growing demands of data on modern business applications. The benefits of a decentralized network are an increase in security and network extensibility since data is securely stored off-chain and management of that data is done through extensible smart contracts.

Mobile apps become decentralized apps

We have a decade of experience helping companies adopt a mobile-first approach to transform their business through apps for phones and tablets, and we’ve started to help those same companies embrace the next great technological shift in software architecture – decentralized apps based on blockchain infrastructure. This shift is as significant as the move to client-server, cloud based and the mobile revolution. Forward-looking innovators need to adopt a blockchain-first mentality, and we’re here to help.

We are experts in:

  • Rapidly implementing proof-of-concept blockchain based prototypes
  • Developing end-to-end DApps on top blockchain platforms
  • Evaluating private blockchain networks for development and experimentation
  • Crafting and implementing smart contracts

Our technical experience includes working with:

  • Blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) platforms from Microsoft, AWS, and IBM
  • Leading blockchain platforms, like Ethereum, Stellar, BigChain, and Hyperledger
  • Wallet, Geth node, MetaMask, Remix, Truffle, TestRPC, to build and test highly responsive blockchain apps
  • Smart contract languages, such as Solidity and the TestRPC, Truffle/Mocha framework

It’s time to think blockchain first

Over the past decade, ArcTouch has helped companies establish a mobile-first mindset, developing apps that transform how people use mobile and connected devices, between companies and their customers, and within the enterprise for their employees.

Now it’s time to reimagine how these apps are built behind the scenes. Blockchain based decentralized apps are the future, with the billions of users and every connected device forming a mesh of computing power to do things like machine learning with unhackable and permanent data stores and ledgers. This technology shift is as significant to businesses in the next decade as the mobile revolution has been to the past decade. Forward looking business leaders should start planning their blockchain-first strategy (hence BlockFirst) now.

With our history in mobile, Internet of Things, and enterprise apps — and our expertise in the technology behind those apps that power those experiences — we’re well-equipped to leverage the unique benefits of blockchain technology as part of next-generation connected applications.
