“Casper Labs was founded in 2018 to build an enterprise-grade blockchain for businesses and governments, whom we believe will ultimately be the highest-volume users of the technology,” said Mrinal Manohar, CEO and co-founder at Casper Labs. “It’s clear that the market has reached a tipping point:organizations are utilizing blockchain technology at historically high rates. We are well positioned to serve this surging demand for a truly enterprise-grade solution;our listing with INX is a major milestone that will open the door to individuals and organizations seeking greater exposure to this industry at an exciting juncture.”
