Peerspoint Development of Digital environment for the Swiss Rugby Union Suspended
Zurich/Lausanne, 01/02/2019 -The Swiss Rugby Union has been working with its partner company Peerspoint on the development of a full union digitalization platform, based on Blockchain technology. This includes a licence and registration system, match management, results, discipline, and e-payment platforms to follow in the near future. Both sides have invested considerable time, energy, and resources in the project.
Shortly before the final launch deadline on January 31st, 2019, Peerspoint has informed the Swiss Rugby Union that it is forced to suspend the development of this software, due to its current financial situation. As is the reality in the world of software development start-ups, Peerspoint has been unable to secure an investor for the final development of this promising software.
The Swiss Rugby Union, having thus far delivered its entire side of the partnership agreement (visibility, communication, content development, data input), is disappointed by this circumstance which now forces both sides to suspend the partnership for the time being.
At the same time, the Swiss Rugby Union continues to believe in this software and in Peerspoint's development thereof, and wishes to encourage its partner company Peerspoint, in the hopes that it can secure financing and continue the development in the near future. The Swiss Rugby Union would be delighted if Peerspoint can return to be an active and contributing member of the “Suisserugby Family”.
