Blockchain Audit Services

After 17 years of buying, building, and negotiating infrastructure; and 6 years of helping cryptocurrency operations, RampRate is uniquely qualified to audit and validate your blockchain project / ICO for:

  1. Proof of presence – validate your hosting, server, network, and software infrastructure to prove that you have in fact deployed a distributed blockchain on infrastructure capable of processing transactions at scale.
  2. Fit to purpose – that the infrastructure you have built can support (or scale to support) the design outlined in your white paper and marketing materials.

With a 2-6 week review we can present an attestation of the these elements to your investors, partners, and customers, enabling you to stand out from the crowd and ensure that operational risk is not a dominant element in your token or coin price. This attestation can be delivered in writing or an on-site presentation.

Phil Wiser, CTO Hearst, formerly of Sony and Liquid Audio


eBay“I knew I was leaving a bit on the table in our outsourced contracts. But the corporate mandate is growth and innovation, and when further contract improvement seemed to be marginal, my team’s first priorities had to move elsewhere. We can count on RampRate to be precise, timely and create millions in value.”

Dean Nelson, Vice President of Global Foundation Services, eBay


Accenture“I have had the pleasure of working with the crew at RampRate several times. Each time they have saved significant time in negotiating and closing contracts for data center space, telecom and managed services, which provided at least 20% savings over what we could have done alone and certainly cut processes in half. Tony and team are extremely knowledgeable in this space and always bring innovation and out-of-the-box thinking to the table.”
