Michael Stollaire, the founder, and CEO of Titanium Blockchain Infrastructure Services (TBIS) is no stranger to the enterprise infrastructure management scene. More than a decade and a half ago, in 1999, he founded EHI; a firm that provides bespoke consultancy services on all matters relating to network infrastructure management. EHI has as clients, some of the biggest global brands across diverse business segments. Some of the clients in the EHI client catalog include Boeing, Apple, IBM, Walt Disney Studios, Accenture, and Microsoft just to mention a few. In the years that EHI has been in operation, the company has garnered rave reviews from many of its clients.
In the many years of being in the forefront of the network infrastructure management service industry, Stollaire and his team have been able to monitor the market closely. Within this period it has become apparent that there exist some fundamental problems with the mainstream enterprise network configuration. For one, the hardware requirements are astounding, with the multitude of routers, server racks, load balancers, and other network components that are required for running the Internet network of an organization. This places a huge cost burden on any organization, and it isn’t even an efficient setup. Furthermore, despite the complexity of the system, there are still vulnerabilities inherent in the design that can be exploited via DDOS and other malicious attacks.
One of the founding principles behind the digital revolution which brought about the emergence of the Internet age was the need to decentralize global information processing. With interconnected networks, it became possible to transmit data and information across nodes within a network that could span the entire globe. At the onset of the Internet, there was a great deal of decentralization, but with the growth of the Internet, this decentralization has been lost due to the emergence of data centers and server farms that basically run the Internet. These establishments aren’t in the spirit of true net neutrality, and they constitute a centralization of information processing power that works in contradistinction to the democratic Internet that was envisioned by the pioneers of the Internet.
The introduction of blockchain technology has forever changed the face of the Internet. The blockchain is a working implementation of decentralization that creates the possibility for almost limitless applicability. Titanium is leveraging this potential to create a revolution in the Internet Infrastructure industry. By creating a blockchain, TBIS aims to decentralize the network infrastructure process and allow for the running of an enterprise network module straight from a tablet or smartphone. With this intuitive and elegant design, network downtimes will become a thing of the past as the TBIS framework allows for the instantaneous shifting of network load from the faulty component and diverting it onto another network.
Blockchains are by design, theoretically immutable and therefore, immune to manipulation. The TBIS blockchain runs on the Ethereum network, and as such, it offers robust security against malicious attacks. All components of the TBIS framework are embedded in the Ethereum network which means that it is impossible to overwhelm any of these components with a DDOS or other address-specific attacks.

- Instant ICO Incubator (III)
The Brains behind the Project
Supporting Mr. Michael Stollaire on this project is a group of experienced business and technical experts across all the relevant fields of Blockchain Technology, Business Management, and Internet Network Infrastructure Management. Members of the team have extensive Blockchain Technology experience in Ethereum, NEM, and Smart Contracts. There are also experts in Enterprise Management, Systems Engineering, Network Administration, and Business Marketing just to mention a few.
Apart from Michael Stollaire, other members of the team include Richard Silver and Christopher Snook who are the COO and CTO respectively. Others include Stuart Siegler, James Connolly, and Jesse Ure who are all Ethereum experts. On the Enterprise management front, you have Nilo Ampunan and Richard Whitaker. Together, the entire TBIS team boasts of more than 200 years combined experience in their respective fields.
The EHI Advantage
Vital to the success of any ICO is the ability to offer a tangible and economically viable product, and the TBIS concept excels in this regard. By partnering with EHI which is already a recognized name in the Industry, TBIS has access to top-tier clients. Investors in the TBIS ICO can rest assured that the TBIS concept isn’t one of those pump and dump ICOs that offer nothing after the ICO campaign.
The Titanium cryptocurrency is known as “BAR,” and it is the native token of the Titanium Blockchain. It is used for carrying out all transactions within the TBIS ecosystem. It is an ERC20 compliant token. The total supply of the BAR token will be capped at 35 million.
The TBIS ICO is slated for January 1, 2018, but investors who wish to be early adopters can choose to participate in the pre-ICO which is already ongoing. The number of tokens available to investors is capped at 60 percent (21 million BARs) while 20 percent (7 million BARs) will be given to the TBIS team as an incentive. From the remaining 20 percent, 10 percent (3.5 million BARs) will go towards the bounty campaign, and the final 10 percent will be held in the reserve pool.
The TBIS concept ticks many of the boxes that a reputable ICO campaign ought to tick such as offering a tangible product/service, reputable partners, and a knowledgeable development team. With the proper marketing strategies, the TBIS ICO can achieve its hard cap target and go on from there to create a service that will have a profound impact on the current network infrastructure landscape.
