Since our pre-sale ended in May, our team has been busy finessing the Zetochain product. We received some invaluable feedback during our pre-sale from token holders and customers, but one request from a number of people stood out and has led us to make a significant pivot to our original product.
We have expanded our vision of creating a blockchain product for the cold chain to building a platform for the entire supply chain.
This Zetochain eco-system is focused firmly on putting the developer community first. We are building an open, public blockchain that will enable the rapid deployment of blockchain solutions within the supply chain industry.
Although blockchain adoption is beginning to ramp up, there are significant hurdles to its mainstream acceptance. Not least among those is the lack of dedicated blockchain developers; there are currently 14 blockchain developer positions available for every one blockchain developer and vacancies are growing by 6,000% each year.
We will be tackling this challenge head on with our open Zetochain platform. Our easy-to-use APIs and SDK are aimed specifically at helping SAP/Oracle/other ERP integrators, hardware OEMs and disruptive new entrants without blockchain coding experience to quickly and easily build a blockchain application.
In order to support promising applications that will be built on the ZetoChain platform we will be setting up an independent body whose role will include assessing proposed applications and the granting of ZetoTokens to those deemed the most promising. These grants are intended to support developers, integrators and OEM’s in their journey to launch quickly and successfully on the ZetoChain platform
It’s an ambitious goal but our experienced team is already embracing the task. We’ve been buoyed by the feedback we’ve received so far and the interest our expanded vision has generated. It’s clear there’s a real appetite for a scalable, open, standards-based blockchain platform.
What are the next steps for Zetochain?
We have just published our new white paper which gives a more detailed insight into the changes we’re making. The white paper is available to download from our new Zetochain website which is currently under construction.
As a result of this wider strategy we have pushed back the date for our ICO, which will now run from 3rdSeptember to the 28thSeptember. We will be announcing all the necessary details, including Know Your Customer sign up and discounts, in the next few weeks.
For now, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the Zetochain community for their support to date. We’re excited to hear your feedback on our expanded and ambitious vision for the Zetochain platform.
