A surfer wakes early, heads to the cool ocean breeze while everyone else remains sleeping. They’re in quiet solitude. The surfer swims to the edge of a peer, the sun is rising, slowly, they await the crest of the first wave. The sky is a color palette that is both unknown but familiar, almost too deep to communicate. It’s early and the current of the waves hasn’t kicked yet, but the surfer awaits examining and observing, developing and strategizing their move. The wave kicks and they’re somewhere in the great unknown, but exactly where they want to be, discovering, exploring and creating. The surfer is connected to something, connected to everything and riding their wave.

Centrys is the surfer and blockchain is the ocean. We’re ready for you.
