Hey guys! Happy to connect today and learn more about the Europechain project! Can you tell us more about the founding of the project and what the problem is that you were addressing?
Europechain was founded by a team of 5 Block Producers/Validators on the EOS blockchain in order to tackle various issues companies are currently facing when trying to adopt blockchain technology. As EOS Block Producers, we saw the potential of EOSIO, as it is very scalable and versatile, as compared to various other blockchain software. However, we also noticed the absence of ’regular’ companies using the blockchain, as a result of various issues which ultimately made the cost and difficulty of using blockchain technology higher than the potential benefit of using this exciting technology.
There’s a wide variety of issues when trying to adopt blockchain technology for these companies, ranging from a lack of compliance to insufficient scalability to complexity issues. Many companies are starting to realize the potential of blockchain technology but they often do not know where to start.
This is why we have founded Europechain. We want to provide scalable, compliant, and sustainable blockchain solutions that are capable of solving real problems and improving the continuous processes of established enterprises.
Awesome! Could you please give us a rundown of the most important things about Europechain?
Europechain brings together an ecosystem of technology providers, system integrators, and commercial partners enabling global enterprises to deploy scalable, resilient, and EU compliant applications. We focus on delivering scalable, compliant, and sustainable blockchain solutions for European enterprises, allowing them to secure their operations and improve their processes. To do this, we offer a wide range of services, including the Europechain Public Blockchain, Private Blockchains, Blockchain as a Service, Consulting & Advisory, Compliance & GDPR, Training & Workshops, and Rapid POC.
In addition to our services, we offer various products and tools, such as our identity application My.D, our workflow tool Flowbook, and many more, which have a broad range of use cases and have the ability to solve various problems that companies face when attempting to integrate blockchain technology into their business.
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.
Great. Tell us about your team as well. Who’re the people behind the screens?
We are a consortium of blockchain experts with over 40+ years of combined experience growing, scaling, and securing business technology in Europe. The team consists of 5 different block producer/validator teams from various EOSIO blockchains.
One example is our CEO, Rhett Oudkerk Pool, Rhett is an experienced entrepreneur, active in information security and compliance for more than twenty years. As a founder and shareholder of Kahuna, he is a respected managed security services provider. Rhett has extensive experience with fast-growing enterprises and is the lucky owner of a prestigious Deloitte Fast 50 Sustainable Growth award.
Another example is our CLO, Jetse Sprey, Jetse chose law over physics to become an inspiring legal advisor with blockchain law knowledge. He has twenty years of experience in all legal aspects of technology and is a partner in a reputable legal firm. Jetse specializes in contract law, tokenization of ownership, digital governance, data protection and intellectual property.
Nice, you have an impressive team, and a lot of experience. Which partnerships have you engaged so far, and which ones are the most impactful?
We currently have various interesting partnerships, with more partnerships being announced soon! Our partners come from all kinds of industries and highlight many of the possibilities of using the Europechain Public Blockchain.
Our most recent partnership with CADChain, for example, enables the recording of intellectual property (IP) on technical drawings, often referred to as CAD models. CADChain uses the Europechain Public Blockchain to securely record IP rights.
Another example is our partnership with the award-winning WordProof. WordProof is a very popular WordPress plugin which allows users to record their online content. This allows writers to protect their online content and it allows readers to verify the authenticity and origin of the content.
