onepoint becomes a Tezos corporate baker

onepoint is a French company that specializes in digital transformations of companies and public agencies in a wide variety of industries such as market finance, banking, real estate, and healthcare.

onepoint was founded in 2002 and operates in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Australia, Canada, the United States, and Tunisia.

With over 2,300 employees and a revenue of €300 million in 2021, onepoint is a sizable player in the industry.

onepoint was announced to become a corporate baker for the Tezos blockchain. 

According to XTZ Watch, they are the 28th corporate baker to join the Tezos ecosystem.

“Joining the Tezos ecosystem as a Corporate Baker was an obvious choice for us and the result of several years of hard work by the teams.

Very early on, we were seduced by the powerful protocol of this blockchain and its innovative governance model.”

– Vincent Rémon, Cybersecurity & Blockchain Leader at onepoint

A “baker” is a term that is used for someone or some organization that runs a blockchain node to validate the Tezos blockchain network.

A Corporate baker is such a validator for the Tezos blockchain and while called a “corporate” baker, this is not a special type of baker with any special position within the Tezos ecosystem.

The fact that this baker will be run by a corporation simply emphasizes the amount of trust and involvement this specific corporation shows in the Tezos blockchain.

Often this move is accompanied by building applications for blockchain use cases they aspire to.

Additionally, setting up a node/ baker enables them to play an active role in the democratic Tezos protocol and have a voice in the direction of core protocol development via amendment upgrades.

It essentially gives them a stake in the blockchain when they are running programs and applications.

“It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome onepoint as a Corporate Baker, which will be able to continue its exploration of Web3-related issues and the Tezos ecosystem.

For several years, onepoint has played a major role in the digital transformation of organizations and the adoption of blockchain technology.

Their unique insight and experience will be a great asset to the community.”

– Hadrien Zerah, President of Nomadic Labs
