Dakai is a development consultancy with focus on the distributed ledger technology (DLT).


We are a team of engineers sharing a passion for writing code and creating products.
Our office is located in the heart of Budapest, Hungary, in the very building where scientists Nikola Tesla and Miksa Deri changed the world with their inventions. Below is a glimpse on how we do our work and approach technology.

We believe the best talent is not tied to location. We work asynchronously in multiple time zones; everyone can pick their preferred schedule and location.
Latest tools of trade
Some of our favorite technologies are Cosmos, Rails and React/React Native. We use containerized infrastructure.
We strive to remove any barriers between you and our team. There are no managers or anyone whose main job is to oversee others’ work. We believe in managing by doing.
Iterations that work
We work in five-week cycles, separated by one week of optimization & planning. This allows us to break even the most complex tasks into reasonable chunks.
There are no ‘sprints’.
Always evolving
After each cycle, we review time tracking, internal metrics and team feedback to improve our workflows and processes for maximum efficiency.
We aspire to create a culture of humility and first principles thinking. We’ve named our company after the Chinese word 打开 meaning ‘open’.
The status quo was made to be challenged
Our clients raised over $130M

With our extensive experience in the ever-evolving startup environment, we understand what it means to create and scale a great product.

We architect and build mobile/web apps, backend services, payment protocols, tokenized systems and general software as well as optimize existing systems. We’re also happy to help with technical consulting and take pride in the successes of the teams we’ve worked with.
