Blockchain Myths vs. Reality

By Esprezzo Team on June 25, 2019

Blockchain is becoming mainstream. For many in the crypto community, this acceptance is long overdue. However, as with any new emerging technology or industry (e.g. artificial intelligence or marijuana legalization) there remains a fair share of skeptics; those who are comfortable with the status quo and are quick to point out flaws in the system, opportunities for misuse, and the potential for the already disenfranchised to be further taken advantage of. For those of you who are cautiously optimistic and want to learn more about blockchain, we want to debunk some of the popular myths for you.

Product Preview: STO Manager Application Template

By Esprezzo Team on April 12, 2019

One of our primary goals at Esprezzo is to create tools that make it less complex and time-consuming to create and manage modern web and decentralized apps. For developers, this often means getting common boilerplate code and services out of the way by relying on tested and proven implementations of things like authentication, user accounts, application structure, compiler/transpiler pipelines etc. There are tools attempting to solve these problems to various degrees by offering web frameworks with plugins, or completely serverless backend solutions that replace the database and server-side app layer with a REST API.

Perkle (PRKL) listing on STEX

By Esprezzo Team on April 3, 2019

Update: PRKL was listed on STEX April 4! Since then, it's also been added to portfolio trackers Blockfolio and Delta.

As we continue building out our product suite for developers and organizations, demand for Perkle is growing, as it is an important component of the Esprezzo ecosystem. As such, we want to increase the security of the platform and make it as easy as possible for developers to build on. Not every developer is able to mine the coins needed to deploy a smart contract, and miners who help secure the network need a quick and easy way to liquidate their holdings. The obvious solution to both those problems is an exchange listing. Providing liquidity to the network will attract new miners and as a result make Perkle a more robust and safe network to build and transact on. And so we’re pleased to announce an exchange listing for Perkle! Starting April 4, you will be able to trade PRKL on STEX.

Blockchain Developer Job Market Insights from a Blockchain Talent Acquisition Consultant

By Kyle Clark on March 28, 2019

This is Part 2 of a series on the blockchain developer job market.

In Part 1, we presented high level findings from our research on blockchain developer jobs as a result of surveying major U.S. recruiting sites. We were inspired to conduct our own research after seeing “Blockchain Developer” listed as the number one emerging occupation in LinkedIn’s 2018 U.S. Emerging Jobs Report. Quite a few people responded to Part 1 with insights and experience, and we’re excited to share insights from one of them here.

David Gadd consults with organizations regarding talent acquisition — specifically, helping them grow their in-house Blockchain teams. David didn’t agree with all our conclusions (it wouldn’t be very interesting if he did) so we reached out to have a conversation around what he’s been seeing, and are excited to report back to you with another perspective from an industry insider with their ear to the street.
