Describe the company – the elevator pitch…

We are a company called DeNet. This is a brand that unites skilled and ambitious developers, headed by Denis Shelestov. DeNet is a first in the world marketplace platform based on blockchain technology, providing decentralized web hosting service and power sharing hub. A startup is a serious enterprise that cannot operate without experienced financial planners, project leaders and a sales team. All of these crucial positions are covered by people with the appropriate background sharing a common passion for what we are doing together.

How are you different?

We are different because we invest our money directly into R&D and we already have an MVP and an alpha-version that you can test right now! We stand apart because we did not leave any margin for our personal or company profit within the decentralized web hosting ecosystem we are building. We, as the creators, don’t lay claim to a single penny from commissions or any other internal system fees. Our profit is the experience and reputation that proves to everyone that our team is capable to execute difficult infrastructure tasks.

Why will you do well?

Our passion is the fuel that drives us. We will do well without a doubt because we have a clear vision of our goals and aims, nothing can divert us from the path we are already on.

Who are you trying to attract to your product?
