Two things drive us at Optakt: building robust blockchain networks from the ground up, and putting them at the heart of a greater ecosystem. This self-imposed tunnel vision has allowed us to build software that runs core blockchain infrastructure worldwide. In essence, we exist to build impactful open source solutions for leading blockchain communities.
Modern software development is broken. There is constant pressure from non-technical stakeholders for features to be delivered quickly. We choose to remove this constraint, and treat our programmers like craftsmen who need space to create. Paradoxically, this allows them to create better software with fewer resources.
We are one-track minded about software design. Writing good code is an artform and there is a certain aesthetic when it flows effortlessly. In other words: smooth from day one, minimal technical debt, simple to maintain and easy to build upon. When these pieces come together, there’s a positive feedback loop which substantially increases development velocity.
