How does your company differentiate itself from the competition?
As a business, we are focused on one single thing - value to the customer.
There are a couple of parts to it - one is related to what we stand for as a business partner and the

includes not only our customers, but also our employees. This can be done only on a foundation of
About the services we provide, our top priorities are Quality and Predictable delivery. Quality should
match the expectation of the business. Predictable delivery comes from good Project Management.
We use Agile Scrum and give real-time visibility into product development.

Please share some of the services that you offer for which clients approach you the most for?

Which platform do you prefer to use when developing a blockchain application? Why?
It depends on the requirement of the client and the business need. If the requirement is specific for
public ledger such as cryptocurrencies or crypto-tokens, we prefer Ethereum like platforms. For an
enterprise level solution and confidential transaction ledgers, we will use HyperLedger Fabric. Also if
the situation arise, we will build solution incorporating both platforms.
What tech stack and tools do your developers use?
Ethereum DApps comprises of a Web Application integration with web3js. The smart contracts are
developed using Solidity. Nodejs is also used for server side communication with Ethereum network
Are open source, decentralized protocols going to be more significant than their web equivalent?
Yes. Crypto-tokens are an excellent example. ICOs can allow startups to avoid the complexity of
regulatory compliance and intermediaries such as venture capitalists, banks and stock exchanges. This
is achieved by the decentralized protocol of crypto-token. It also provides near instant liquidity for
What scalability and throughput challenges are there with blockchain? What solutions would you suggest?
Public blockchain like Ethereum can be used to store only a limited amount of data. Writing data into
it can be expensive compared to the conventional databases. So while architecting a platform, we
must incorporate databases to work along with the Blockchain ledger. Also technologies like
InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) can be used to solve theses issues.
Will the success rate of ICOs be better or worse than tech start-ups?
As mentioned above, ICOs can allow startups to avoid regulatory compliance and intermediaries such
as venture capitalists, banks and stock exchanges. Misuse and fraud usage of ICOs have made it
unpopular and untrusty. This have let down the market for crypto-token. Still crowdfunding can be
done, if enough proof or any prototype like model can be showcased or delivered to the public to gain
attention and trustiness.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a project?
This mainly depends on the features of the app(Scope), Risk Assessment (Complexity of the project),
Technology Stack and Architectural Design.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients?
Our Engagement Models:
●Time and Material(T&M)
●Dedicated Team Model
●Managed Services (We take care of the project in its full entirety)
We also follow a milestone based payment structure for our clients for fixed bid projects.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2018?
We have worked on some POC’s for startup and also build enterprise applications - range has been
from $10,000 and $200,000.
