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.
