It sounds like you have a broad range of use cases indeed. So going forth into 2020 and beyond, how will Europechain make an impact in the crypto space, or on the world?
Our mission is to increase the mainstream adoption of blockchain technology, through sustainable, scalable, and compliant solutions. Therefore, we hope that in the future, as more and more companies adopt blockchain technology, processes and applications become more efficient, are better for the world, and are able to use compliance to their advantage.
Now, could you tell us about your accomplishments so far, and in the history of the project, please tell us what you are most proud of.
In the relatively short time since the start of Europechain, we have been able to do many great things. We have successfully launched our public blockchain, the Europechain Public Blockchain, and are now onboarding our first partners. In addition, we have started offering many different services, such as private blockchains, Blockchain as a Service (BaaS), consulting & advisory, and more.
And lastly, we have developed various products, such as our compliance management tool FACT, our GiftVoucher platform, and more.
All things considered, we are very proud of the progress we have been able to make so far.
You made a lot of progress, that’s nice to see! Now, give us a quick rundown of the future of Europe chain. For example, what new things are you seeking to bring to life and what will it mean for the overall project?
In the future, our main goal is to partner with major system integrators and technology providers in the European Union and to onboard them onto the Europechain Public Blockchain.
