ULedger, a provider of blockchain solutions, today announced it will be offering universities and non-profit organizations the opportunity to utilize ULedger’s blockchain solution at no cost. With the ability to seamlessly integrate into any legacy technology infrastructure, ULedger allows any company to become blockchain-enabled, providing a reliable and immutable record of data. ULedger was built on the mission of bringing blockchain to the masses, and this new program will afford even more institutions the ability to improve their existing systems and integrate blockchain technology that they may have not had access to otherwise.
“We spend a lot of our time speaking with enterprise clients and other blockchain developers and we’ve realized that those who could benefit the most are often left out of the conversations,” ULedger CEO Josh McIver said. “Public institutions and non-profits are historically slow to adopt new technologies or upgrade their IT networks due to budgets, and can easily be priced out of the most innovative data solutions. ULedger is dedicated to staying true to our mission of introducing blockchain to the masses and we are proud to offer our solution free of charge to organizations such as universities and non-profits.”
The ULedger blockchain solution augments existing technology infrastructure, making it applicable for a wide variety of use cases. Universities will be able to leverage ULedger to connect academic departments, securely collaborate on research with other universities, and provide immutable audit trails of grades, student records, and any other digital file or transaction. Non-profits stand to benefit from the creation of donation databases to track where and how donations are spent and from data assurance for internal email communications and for regulatory compliance.
“The ULedger blockchain provides a necessary tool for a wide range of entities, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to non-profits and universities,” COO Pete Anewalt said. “Providing easy implementation for streamlining and verifying data, we are committed to democratizing access to this important new technology, and this program is an important step in getting there.”
ULedger is an API or on-premise protocol that enables any legacy software system to leverage the inherent benefits of blockchain technology. This announcement follows a recent partnership with with artificial intelligence company Kount, to react quickly to fraud. ULedger additionally services a Big 4 accounting firm, the City of Boise, a global shipping company, a big data company and many more entities across various verticals and use cases.
