ZirconTech Becomes A Tezos Corporate Baker

ZirconTech is a company that facilitates digital transformations for companies with custom-made web and mobile software solutions.

Based out of Uruguay, but also operating out of New York, the ZirconTech team has over 20 years of experience in developing adaptive software and solutions for businesses based on IoT, AI, big data, cloud computing and blockchain technologies.

Now, ZirconTech has announced that they have become a corporate baker.

“With the emergence of Web3, the company has recently developed a blockchain application to enable universities to dematerialise diplomas and transcripts.

The application is based on the ZirconTech Notarizer, which uses blockchain technology as a proof of authenticity for the existence of a file.

ZirconTech, has added Tezos as a new blockchain platform for the Notarizer and will also integrate it into the “Tokenizer”’, a general purpose tokenization platform to be launched this year.”

– Nomadic Labs  

“We are delighted to confirm our involvement in the Tezos ecosystem by becoming a corporate baker.

At ZirconTech, we were interested in the scalability of the Tezos blockchain and in its smart contract language conceived to facilitate formal verification.”

– Andres Zunino, Co-Founder & CEO of ZirconTech

A company that sets up a Tezos node, is playfully called a corporate baker. ZirconTech become the 27th corporate baker in the Tezos ecosystem. 

A Corporate baker 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 corporations show in the Tezos blockchain.

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 that they are running programs and applications on.
