2020 has been so far tumultuous for the world, to say the least. The COVID-19 pandemic halted business as usual and wiped out a significant portion of the global economy, setting countries and households on a long way to recovery. The crisis can be however also an opportunity for the digital-first companies, as social distancing enforced digital acceleration in nearly all parts of life: from work to e-commerce to music festivals.
Billon as a company with digital offerings and operations is in the lucky position to weather the storm. While we are aware that the next 12-18 months will still be very difficult for the economy, we believe that with the great digital skills of our staff and our enterprise DLT technology offering, suited to the very real needs of businesses, will let us ride on top of the wave of change.
In 2020 we were also active in the thought leadership space, providing insight into the latest trends and challenges in commercial use of blockchain technologies. Articles published by Billon staff cover the concept of distributed digital cash and its advantage over stablecoins, the compliance of blockchain technologies with GDPR, the use case of tamper proof digital diplomas on chain and more.
As for the implications of the pandemic on our daily lives, Billon switched to 100% remote work and we will continue to work like this through the summer season. We were already quite flexible when it came to working from the office or remotely, so we adjusted to the new conditions without big difficulties. Still, this is a situation we have never encountered before and which is certainly challenging not only for Billon but for any company which must function in the new reality. With that in mind we share some tips by our co-founder and COO Robert Kałuża on how to keep productivity and projects on track despite this turbulent situation.
Let’s hope the second half of 2020 will be better and in the meantime - enjoy the holiday season!
