Why you should join Spruce Systems, Inc.

Today, the dominant use case for user keys is the signing of blockchain transactions, but we think this barely scratches the surface of what is possible. Soon, the entirety of a user’s digital interactions will be based on their keypairs, and we’re unlocking this transition with our constellation of products.
