For any business – especially a young, cutting-edge business like ours – it’s important to keep focus. With big ideas and exciting pathways seemingly everywhere, we are keen, with expert knowledge and open minds, to be seen as leaders and not followers of opportunities.
Of course, that pace comes with victories and challenges, and occasionally requires a hard look inward. 2022 was a time when so many were forced to do just that. And at Holon, we realised after our long look that it was time for a change.
As Socrates said, “The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new.”
After working closely with governments and regulators since 2019, it became all too clear to us in 2022 that the financial services industry, in terms of digital assets, was still not ready, not mature enough and, mostly, not supported by the powers that be.
Since we first invested in Filecoin back in 2017, with its potential for cost effective, secure and efficient decentralised data storage, our emerging data storage business, powered by the Filecoin Network, was going from strength to strength. Our Sydney data centre infrastructure became fully operational early last year, and our 100% green New Zealand data centre’s capacity is already spoken for in terms of client data.
So, after some tough decisions, Holon in 2023 has become a leaner, clearer, and more focussed operation. We are capitalising on our 2017 investment and providing data storage that’s more affordable, more secure, and more green. Data is growing exponentially, and we aim to be the biggest (and best) data storage provider in the Asia-Pacific region, and we’re well on our way.
So, here’s to focus – laser focus – and to building the new.
