The Blockchain Industry Needs 3 things: pioneers, mass adoption and E&S Group

The biggest event of the year, Malta Blockchain Summit, lived up to its expectations with an incredible 8,500 turnout. The Summit was full of highlights, with interviews from Sophia the robot, to entertaining discussions from blockchain evangelist, John McAfee.

Attendees had an opportunity to visit the vivid exhibition with more than 400 companies represented, enjoyed the keynotes of the conference, witnessed the hackathon and attended workshops on investment, marketing, business development and many other topics.

The presence of media and PR agencies representatives on the exhibition and during public speeches provided the companies and individuals with the decent level of publicity. E&S Group directors were interviewed several times during the event being asked numerous questions on the DLT industry development in Malta, legal framework of the country and the firm`s tokenized services.

E&S Group successfully conducted an ICO in February 2018 and issued ESTS utility tokens, that can be exchanged on the legal services and consultancy the company provides. ESTS tokens were also given out during the Malta Blockchain Summit. On Friday afternoon, there was a draw of 500,000 ESTS tokens for those people who had signed up to the services.

The networking opportunities at the Malta Blockchain Summit were second-to-none. Every night there were a lot of dinners, parties, meet-ups and meetings organised despite the evening events scheduled in an official program of the summit.

E&S Group hosted an exclusive after-party which occurred on the last day of The Malta Blockchain Summit, 2nd of November. More than 300 partners, clients and industry influencers got the invitation and joined us that night. The high level of the event organization and the hospitable atmosphere didn’t leave the guests indifferent. The company received numerous positive feedbacks from the attendees, such as:

“Thanks for a great evening! What a great way to round out the conference” – David Doepel, Media & Blockchain Entrepreneur and Researcher, said.

“Well done Christian and Karl for your party with a touch of class. Very impressed with the high calibre of global clients and contacts you have. Keep it up!” –  commented Ralph Liu, Investment Banker and Venture Investor.

According to the opinion of Martin Glettler, Executive Director PayMagnet Technologies Ltd, “the blockchain industry needs three things: pioneers, mass adoption and E&S”.

Living in a truly transformative age, companies need to act quickly and rationally to changes, with a special focus on the areas in which its competence will stand out against strong international competition.

What is NEO and why is it gaining traction?

What is NEO and why is it gaining traction?

The Blockchain technology is overtaking the world by storm. More companies are shifting their business into the world of blockchain, most notably financial services, governments, healthcare and media.

Blockchain is a system of agreements working on encryption. A stream of computer nodes is connected to a common blockchain. They verify transactions until the last node is confirmed and completed. Once a transaction is processed it cannot be changed, deleted or manipulated.

Insight on the NEO platform.

The NEO platform was developed by a Shanghai-based blockchain R&D company called “OnChain”. They created a platform which is widely associated with Ethereum. On the NEO website, the platform is described as “non-profit community-based blockchain project that utilizes blockchain technology and digital identity to digitize assets, to automate the management of digital assets using smart contracts, and to realize a “smart economy” with a distributed network.”

The NEO platform works by smart contracts. These digital contracts follow specific-instruction which are programmed to the platform in a written code by programmers. Its role is to self-execute the contract given to it when certain conditions are made.

NEO is said to be similar to Ethereum. However, NEO’s space supports many different code bases, namely; C#, VB.Net, F#, Java, Kotlin to name a few. While on the other hand, Ethereum has its tailor-made proprietary language named Solidity. Every developer working on the Ethereum platform needs to get acquainted with this digital language before developing their projects on this platform.

The advantages that NEO has for developers is that it is easy to work on, and developers do not need to learn a totally new language to create their blockchain on the platform. NEO is easy to use in order for one to create new projects which include smart contracts.

What will the future of NEO be? Will it overtake Ethereum? Only time will tell what will happen to these two competing blockchains.

Is blockchain technology vital for ICOs to function?

Is blockchain technology vital for ICOs to function?

Every Initial Coin Offering (ICO) works by means of blockchain technology. Subsequently, blockchain is the source that issue tokens, trade cryptocurrencies and aid miners to operate the platform. This technology is combining many industries both private and public to use this advanced system of collecting data.

ICOs and Tokens

Although blockchain can function on its own, it is widely used by ICOs. Many companies and startups are moving towards a blockchain era of things. A surge of investors are spending their money on various projects and digital currencies that are exceeding the market cap by trading volume. However, most ICOs issue their cryptocurrency by means of tokens. In reality, ICOs are projects that are designed by founders offering a service to their followers. Most companies opt for a blockchain based ICO to remove any third parties. Money needed to start off the project is collected by means of crowdfunding. Tokens, another word for cryptocurrencies are issued to whoever funds and supports the initiative.

What will happen when ICOs reach their Soft cap and Hard Cap?

During the Virtual Financial Assets (VFA)  offering stage, ICOs invest in their marketing projects to attract more investors. During the VFA offering process, ICOs would need to reach their soft cap and then the estimated hard cap. When the VFA offering ends, every ICO takes a different path. Some of the currencies end up on the market cap, trading their tokens with other cryptocurrencies while others continue with their intended project.

Blockchain a decentralised platform.

Blockchain is a decentralised platform for storing data. This new technology is becoming an important platform for processing transactions. Every transaction is verified by means of computer nodes connected to each other. Besides Bitcoin, new blockchain based cryptocurrencies started to take over the market. One of the most popular blockchain platform by far is the Ethereum platform. Created by Vitalik Buterin, the Ethereum platform has become the ideal platform since it is easy to set up. The Ethereum platform works via smart contracts. These digitalised contracts work to facilitate, verify or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract. Meanwhile, these contracts eliminate the use of third parties. The majority of ICOs tend to use the Ethereum platform for smart contracts.

Legal advice to ICOs.

Despite the fact that ICOs require blockchain technology to work, legal advice is of the utmost importance. Signing up your ICO in a progressive jurisdiction such as Malta would help the project reach its final stages. An interdisciplinary firm based in Malta, E&S Group, offers an array of services assisting ICOs from their concept stage up the actual offering. Advisory service offered to prospective ICO clients are blockchain, tokenomics, taxation, and opening a Malta company, to name a few. To date, E&S Group has successfully advised over 40 ICOs, all reaching their hard cap.
