Our service offerings enable BlockTec to maintain advantages in Flexible Delivery Models and Competitive Pricing while utilizing our established channel partners for a one-stop shop for all Blockchain and IT-related solutions.

In addition to training, we plan to grow our channel partnerships to ensure we can provide Traditional IT support for more customers, no matter the scope or volume.
Q: What is the best thing about your Company that people might not know about?
A: While still an infant technology in the broader world of innovation, Blockchain is often viewed as a skeptical concept. The core excitement of digital currencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum has swarmed the minds of investors, critics, and enthusiasts, alike. But what if I told you that digital assets are less than 10% of the Blockchain story? The foundation of blockchain technology enables the digitization of real property and assets, and the use cases five-ten years in the future are limitless. Establishing Blocktec as an MBE was no random action, considering 23% of African & Hispanic Americans utilize cryptocurrency as another form of wealth storage. Blocktec is proud to be one of the first, Blockchain-enabled minority businesses in the NMSDC.
So what is the best thing about our Company? Innovation and Diversity. No matter the technology or pain points, BlockTec can provide innovative solutions due to our diverse backgrounds and expertise.
