    Founder started as a community-led blockchain meetup called Beerchain whose members included some of the best tech talent in Dublin's Silicon Docks. This meetup focused on the technical aspects of blockchain technology and undertook a number of internal projects. One such project was called project lemming, which focused on creating a blockchain enabled application used to manage digital assets. Members of the Beerchain meetup were asked to demo this project at a showcase event ahead of the European Blockchain for Finance 2017. Due to the outstanding feedback received after this event a number of Beerchain members decided to found a dedicated blockchain consultancy, aptly named The rest, is the future.
