Chainzilla is providing businesses the most efficient bespoke blockchain solutions, decentralized applications, and blockchain deployment. The CEO Charles Gonzales will be discussing Chainzilla with us in this Interview.
1) Please tell us your name and about yourself?
My name is Charles and I am the CEO of ChainZilla. I previously worked for Komodo Platform and have been part of the crypto space for the past 4 years. During my time at Komodo the team developed atomic swap technology, native tokenization, HyperDEX, Agama Multiwallet, and integrated crypto conditions.
2) What is Chainzilla?
It’s an end-to-end blockchain provider. The main goal of the company is to streamline blockchain deployment and onboarding.
3) What is the technology behind Chainzilla?
ChainZilla uses multiple technologies. We offer our clients the option of launching on 4 different networks and we are adding more as we test different blockchains. Currently we offer our clients services for NEM, Komodo, Qtum, and Ethereum.
4) What are the Major Services you provide at Chainzilla?
Our focus is on project onboarding. That means we make the process of launching a blockchain as easy as possible. Additionally we are reinventing different blockchain apps to streamline their deployment. Our clients are able to launch a blockchain with a wallet, DEX integration, spv, explorer, and paper wallet tool in 4 weeks.
5) What is Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) and what are the advantages?
Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) is an offering that allows customers to leverage solutions to build, host and use their own apps, smart contracts on the blockchain while a provider like ChainZilla manages all the necessary tasks and activities to keep the infrastructure agile and operational. BaaS makes it easy to launch and maintain your blockchain.
6) What is the market size of Blockchain Technology in Central America and what benefits will Chainzilla bring to this market?
The fintech sector is still in its infancy in Central America. There are no Paypal-like services, no p2p payment apps like Venmo, and banking services are years behind when compared to the European markets. These inefficiencies create huge opportunities for technology providers like ChainZilla.
ChainZilla is the first company in the entire region to offer end-to-end BaaS for several platforms. Our timing is just right and we plan to make the most of it.
7) On what stage of development is the Chainzilla project and what are your business targets from now till 2020?
ChainZilla is fully operational. We already are working with 3 clients and more are in the pipeline. Some of those projects will launch later this year. Our team is developing the Chameleon wallet for all Komodo assets which will help the ecosystem. All of these tools are available to our clients. By 2020 we expect to have launched over 100 blockchains and seeded at least 5 successful partner projects.
8) Could you tell us about your team and customer support?
If we count the external developers we are about 45 strong. Our core team is composed of 10 people but that doesn’t include customer support. We are in the process of setting up our knowledge base and setup a call line for our clients. The helpdesk is already live and that’s where most of our clients are contacting us.
Our business model offers two types of packages. Do-it-yourself and managed services. As the name implies, companies that choose a DIY package will be in charge of their infrastructure after we deliver the software. They won’t get constant support from us. Managed services on the other hand will get more of a hands on approach from our team.
9) How Safe is Chainzilla, would you like to talk about your legal and security measures?
Safe is a relative term. We utilize the latest technology available. When we launch native blockchains there are less things to worry about than with smart contracts. However, we have specialists that review all of the code for quality assurance.
Another reason why we use networks like NEM, Komodo, and Ethereum is because their codebase is constantly updated. We advise against launching a standalone network due to security concerns. However, with a proof-of-stake blockchains it’s sufficiently secure.
Our legal advisors are Aroc Panama. They are known to have launched over 500 of the most important brands in Panama. There currently is no blockchain-specific laws in the Panama but they are on the way. They are helping us comply with local law and we are also working with external teams to assist our clients in other jurisdictions like Curacao, Singapore, and Malta.
10) Do you have more information for our readers?
We will release more information on the projects we are working with when they are closer to launch. Join our discord and participate in our giveaways, airdrops, and early access to applications.
