About Richard Boevé
Blockchain Quality Specialist

Traditional testing approaches fall short when it comes to building Blockchain applications.  The immutable nature of this technology means you can’t just rely on last minute smoke testing since production hotfixes simply aren’t possible.

When involved in the early stages of a Blockchain project, my extensive testing background and cutting-edge understanding of Blockchain technology enable me to see potential issues coming from miles away allowing them to be mitigated early on, saving you time and money.

"It is a sad fact that many blockchain projects have gone live with little or no formal testing by anyone other than the project developer.  The consequence of working with bleeding-edge technology combined with a lack of formal quality assurance is a Pandora's box of bugs. While some have been minor, others have resulted in the loss of millions of dollars."
– Elias Haase, Founder B9lab

On a more personal note

Richard Boevé Travel Adventures

I'm originally from the Netherlands but have called New Zealand home for the past 10 years.  I enjoy tramping  and cycling and when I can't get outdoors, I stay in shape with CrossFit.

I'm an avid traveler and have had numerous global adventures including a road trip through South America in 2013 and a road trip from the North Pole to Panama from 2005-2007.

Omar and Oliver

Some of my more sedentary hobbies include learning about and experimenting with new tech innovations such as Blockchain and cryptocurrencies and trying to keep track of my cats, Omar and Oliver.
