About license.rocks

We are the first company to blockchainify software license management.


Our Story

On a late summer’s night in 2016, Daud and Frank, the founders of license.rocks, were discussing real use cases for the blockchain over a beer at Bar 77, Berlin’s legendary crypto drinking establishment. Suddenly it dawned on us software license management is a perfect fit as a genuine use case for the blockchain.

After a successful application for the Berlin Startup Scholarship, the license.rocks journey began. We began with the insolvency sector as this is a perfect market niche with an extreme preponderance of information asymmetry. Our solution offers great benefits to any insolvency manager or liquidator.

Who we are

We are seasoned veterans in the software management space and are able to draw on more than 25 years of experience in the sector.

How we work

We are working in a transparent way always focusing on the customer benefit. Although we love the technology, we don’t try to convince anyone to use blockchain technologies if the use case doesn’t add extra value.
