Critical Future Global® Blockchain Development Services

Custom Development

Whether through the creation of decentralized applications or support of a private blockchain, Toptal’s experienced blockchain developers help clients take advantage of the numerous opportunities that the emerging technology has to offer.

Blockchain Security

Blockchain provides alternative options for digital security, using familiar cryptography but with unchangeable data. Work with Toptal developers to understand how your company can use blockchain as a means to secure data and enhance the trust verification processes.

Smart Contracts

Smart contracts are programmed contracts that utilize execution in a distributed environment for enforceability. These can variously be used to support crowdfunding, blind auctions, multi-signature wallets, and more.


Companies are turning to Ethereum, a blockchain-based platform, for broader applications of trust verification beyond just cryptocurrency including smart contracts (powered by the programming language Solidity).


The most popular cryptocurrency in the world, Bitcoin was also the first distributed blockchain. Toptal developers have experience with Bitcoin Core, the underlying reference client for the currency, as well as with the digital currency itself.


Created by the Linux Foundation, Hyperledger is a project of open-source blockchains and related tools. Toptal Hyperledger developers have experience in Hyperledger blockchain platforms like Fabric and Sawtooth, and tools such as Cello.

Local insight - reward varies significantly by international markets. Benchmarking data ensures you have the right offer for each local market.
