About BC Gateways
Building Communities of Trust
BC Gateways builds Global Communities of Trust that extend across boundaries. Harnessing the power of emerging technologies, we build inclusive trust networks to empower all business, large and small across industries, markets and national borders, so that everyone can benefit from the next wave of transformational opportunities.
What we do
The world is facing a rising global challenge where unverified information has enabled multiple versions of the truth. Confidence and trust levels are at risk as existing technology solutions often fail to adequately guarantee data integrity across complex networks.
We are dedicated to restoring trust in information with a transformational blockchain communications platform that will revolutionise global industries by democratising data and discovering its true value across an ecosystem.
BC Gateways was founded in Hong Kong in 2017 to commercialise The Gateway, its “Plug and Play” blockchain-enabled platform designed and built by a dedicated team.
The Management Team comprises people with deep experience in banking, finance, trade and technology. As a member of Blockchain Australia,BC Gateways believes blockchain presents massive opportunities for transformational change in information dependent disaggregated industries subject to high levels of commercial, financial, reputational or regulatory risk.
In 2020, BC Gateways was acquired by Iress, a market-leading financial software provider.
