Vote for Crypto Embassy
Crypto Embassy makes a breakthrough in the Blockchain world, guiding new commers to collaborate and learn together with end-to-end blockchain educational courses.
Our interest for Lisk
Our mission: By participating in Lisk and continuing our teaching endeavors, we believe that we can contribute to help try and shift the perception of cryptocurrencies online and in our local area towards a more « Professional » mindset. There is less awareness concerning the reality of crypto (development tool, not only financial speculation) in the E.U. and specifically in France.
Our Situation: We have been and still are the devs behind Byzantine™ which is now a trusted partner of various established work groups and companies focused on developing the core technology of blockchain solutions and maintaining high security standards for distributed system. From now on we will be separating our services between Byzantine and crypto_embassy as they will be providing different services in the future.
Our Vision: We hope to bring Lisk and Cryptocurrencies to a much larger scale by continuing our meetups, workshops and consultancy. Additionally, we have ties with various groups and companies conducting ICO’s on the Lisk® platform. We have many ideas that you can read below on how we will push Lisk to become a standard.
We have been named lisk Ambassadors in 2018 by LiskHQ (First and only in France).
We have been in OpenSource web dev for more than 10 years, and have a few full Stack dev’s in house transitioning from client work to Lisk work in order to bring to you some great new tools.
Our plan as a Delegate
Here is a list of projects and ideas that we will be pushing as a delegate. Being in forging position will help us accelerate and concretise the process.
Thanks to our partnerships with different schools, we would like to develop an Academic sidechain where each school would be a node of the network. Students will be able to develop their own sidechain and each node (i.e. school) will be rewarded by the work of its students. This provides an incentive for schools to be part of the network and develop tools for the Lisk community.
As our Meetup group is growing every day and being asked to talk at other Meetups that we do not organise, we think there is a real need for French people to know more about Blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Our aim is to create a big event « Consensus like » in France. This would be a great occasion for French leading industry startups, investors, financial institutions, enterprise tech leaders, ….to share their vision of blockchain and digital currency economy.
Easy access to Crypto in France/Europe
We are currently building our own Crypto ATM that will have a Bitcoin and Lisk Fiat gateway. On top of that we are negotiating with bars and restaurants to upgrade their checkout process to accept cryptocurrencies. Our goal will then be to distribute our ATMs throughout France (country with the least crypto ATM) and convince a maximum of merchants to accept cryptocurrencies as an alternative with a pre-packaged tool.
Being one of the first actors in Brittany enables us to have an impact on our entrepreneurial environment. Therefore, we are attempting (in discussions) to open a 3000 square meter start-up incubator with major financial and state backed companies. Our role would be in finding and accelerating crypto startups and act as technical and commercial consultants. This would be a major opportunity to help push the crypto industry in Brittany and in general.
If and when we get to a forging position we aim to create a community fund. Our aim is to help young and innovative projects as many startups lack resources. In a second phase, we will try and automate/open the decision process for fund allocation, making it as decentralised as possible.
The big picture
- Create one of the biggest French Lisk Hackathons
- In cooperation with our town/region, we are collaborating on the creation of tools making the most of the available open-data initiatives, to improve costs and efficiencies.
- Sponsor events and concerts in our vicinity, develop a ticketing app.
- Take part in a hot air balloon festival with a giant Lisk balloon.
