Monax Industries was co-founded in 2014 by Casey Kuhlman. Incorporated as “Eris Industries” and previously known as “Eris”, the company changed its name to Monax in October 2016. The firm built a market-leading, free and open-source universal blockchain platform on which anyone can construct their own secure, low-cost, run-anywhere applications using blockchain and smart contract technology. In April 2018, Monax became one of the founding companies behind the Agreements Network, a decentralized blockchain-powered contract management platform for small and medium enterprises. The Network allows anyone to develop, customize, sell and reproduce legal products. Monax is headquartered in London and has offices in Edinburgh and New York.
