Anything else you’d like to add/we should have asked?
Why did you start Etherparty?
From previous experiences with enterprise solutions, I’ve also experienced the difficulty for companies to create an effective system to run their business, that’s why I want to tap into the versatility of an automated smart contract creator based on Ethereum to lower that barrier for businesses and even individuals. With that, the idea for Etherparty was born.
As businesses become more familiar to the potential and ecosystem in the blockchain world, the next evolution will be driving the mass adoption of this technology. The first phase was the migration from the public blockchain to private blockchains, now, in addition to the token infrastructure every blockchain relies on, the next step will be making smart contract creation easier for businesses to execute different orders on the blockchain. This is where the industry is heading, and we started Etherparty precisely to help catalyze that change.
