Serial Entrepreneur and CEO Simba series (Simple Blockchain Application In short), Dr. Brian Ritchie discussed the US government’s role as a leader in the adoption of blockchain for many of its affiliates, including the US Air Force and the US Space Force.
How SIMBA Solves Barriers to Web3 Adoption
Dr. Ritchie believes that blockchain has the potential to solve real-world problems across various domains, but the technology is difficult to implement in existing systems. Since blockchain, and Web3 by extension, is an emerging technology, there are not many developers with the right skill set. So finding talent that specializes in this topic is difficult, and the cost is usually high.
This is where SIMBA Chain plays a key role—a Web3 developer platform designed primarily for experts and developers outside of the blockchain, making it an accessible solution for Web2 companies, the public and private sectors.
The company’s core product is SIMBA Blocks, a smart solution as a service (SaaS) that connects systems and applications to the blockchain, leveraging the power of this technology across supply, healthcare, information management, and more.
“There are a lot of great projects out there, but they are generally designed for blockchain developers and experts in the field. Ultimately, it is not going to help mass adoption – we want to make sure that any company, regardless of their blockchain expertise, can benefit from the technology.”
The US government as a pioneer in Blockchain adoption
SIMBA has been working with several arms of the US government since 2019. Dr. Ritchie said that the government’s strong inclination towards blockchain technology is its positive potential in multiple branches and the elimination of inefficiencies within existing systems.
“The government has the resources to explore and figure out how to implement blockchain. They build a lot of important stuff and it’s hard to know where this part is among the more than 400 resources.”
Token data is stored in the blockchain, and it is transparent, immutable and tamper-resistant, which reduces the risk of fraud and makes it easier for the government to know where each part is. “Anything the government wants to track, there is a great opportunity to use blockchain to do that.”
SIMBA Chain is currently working with the US government to code budget and cash flow and with the US Space Force (USSF) to track space debris. Furthermore, the USAF has commissioned the platform to use blockchain to track and monitor components of the USAF supply chain.
Dr. Ritchie also mentioned that Simba was awarded $250,000 from Orbital Prime to create an incentive program to remove space debris.
SIMBA is also helping the US healthcare system by decentralizing users’ health information, allowing them to have complete control and anonymity unless they agree to reveal their identity.
Fewer than 25% of health systems can share data more effectively than electronic medical records. So if you go to the hospital, and your family doctor doesn’t work at that hospital, it’s very likely that they won’t be able to get your health records without emailing or faxing them. Well, the blockchain provides real-time visibility to all parties that have permission to access it.”
Dr. Ritchie believes SIMBA Chain is leading the curve in adopting Web3 in the same way that Web2 did in the early 2000s with the boom of the Internet. To date, SIMBA has saved companies up to $1.3 million in upfront expenses, creating proven solutions not only for the US government but also for large organizations such as Boeing and CAT and software companies such as Atomic Labs and BSSI.
