After having spent over 25 years in the merchant services and payment industry, I experienced firsthand the need for better solutions that keep up with the expectations of both businesses and customers. This led me to enter into the Blockchain space several years back when I was able to see the clear market use-cases for distributed ledger technology (DLT) and decentralized payment systems.

Rhythm Technologies strive to help bring these solutions to the financial and trading industries in impactful and solution-focused ways using our knowledge, while offering consulting services for blockchain projects, including marketing, finance, legal, and funding advising.
Ritas Ziupsnys CEO of Rhythm Technologies

Blockchain and cryptocurrency should not be seen as buzzwords added on to technology projects to drum up interest, but rather, they are an inevitability of technology progression. Companies and products have a need to go beyond innovation for the sake of innovation and implement blockchain solutions as integral components of their products for the benefit of their customers, while simultaneously understanding that the goal is to impact the value and usability without the necessity of informing customers how the backend works.

Talented individuals and teams are building technologies that will revolutionize the world of finance and more. Crypto assets are a multi-trillion dollar sector that is only now just being imagined. 


Rhythm Technologies seeks significant opportunities that, through innovation and efficient implementation, have the potential to dislocate markets in various industries. We believe success is built by a combination of advisory support, capital, and strong working relationships.
