Q&A

We spoke with Gladius Co-Founder Alex Godwin over Telegram. Here are his answers to our questions.

How big of an issue are DDoS attacks for websites?
DDoS attacks are an incredibly common and devastating aspect of the modern internet. As more and more of commerce and communication moves to the web, delays or downtime can mean hundreds of thousands of dollars lost.

What is the main benefit of having Gladius utilize blockchain technology? 
The main benefits are resilience, security, and scalability. What we mean by that is that we can have a combination and payment system that is secure and resilient to attack, as well as allowing us to reach more nodes and open the market to a previously untapped resource.

What role does the token play in the network?
The token allows polling ability, payment, and spam protection by requiring a stake in the ecosystem before you can list in a market or become a node.

When do you estimate the network will be fully functional?
We have plans to be functional with a small set of websites by March, however we will be incrementally releasing alpha code to the public before then.

Genaro Network [GNX]

The First Blockchain 3.0 Ecosystem Built on a Turing-Complete Public Chain with Decentralized Storage.

TOKEN SALE / ICO

Symbol:  GNX
Token Sale: November 17, 2017 – December 17, 2017

Total Tokens: 700,000,000
Allocation: 85% Public Community / 15% Internal Team
Hard Cap: 67812.5 ETH

Q&A

We conducted a brief Q&A with Jason Inch (Strategic Lead) of the Genaro Network over Telegram on November 20.

How did the idea for the Genaro Network come about?
The Genaro Network project was, like many innovations, born out of frustration and necessity.

The frustration, in this case, was that experienced by Larry Liu and Waylon Wu, two of the four Genaro co-founders, who are blockchain developers and experienced first-hand how complicated it was to store and access data using blockchain. To be sure, there are a number of ways to do this, including on-chain and off-chain solutions, traditional cloud storage providers, and so on, but each of these presented some challenges and drawbacks.

So they conceived of a blockchain that would have storage solutions built directly into it, allowing developers to create their DAPPS faster and have them operate more efficiently.

The third component, the integrated Hub and Accelerator, came through the other two co-founders, Jason Inch and Andrea Liu, who have backgrounds in social enterprise and coworking space operations. They saw how effective it was to build community when you run your own hub with a focused theme.

When do you estimate Genaro Network to have a working product out?
Genaro Network is currently running on Ethereum as a test net and has demo applications, such as Genaro Eden, in beta. In cooperation with STORJ, Genaro will be localizing and launching products for the Chinese market. All of these things are either happening already or will be well underway by the end of 2017.

In 2018, Genaro will begin incubating other DAPPs in 2018 and launching projects it calls Episilon and Romulus, and Genaro will launch its own public chain in 2019 or sooner depending on the test net results.

Where will the Genaro Accelerator be located? When do you anticipate it will launch?
The first Genaro Hub and Accelerator will be launched in Singapore in early 2018. Potential locations have already been scouted, and the decision will be finalized by the end of 2017.

The priorities for location selection will include proximity to university and innovation areas of the city, as well as being close to other blockchain ecosystems that are developing in the city.

Additional hubs, in Shanghai, San Francisco, Tokyo or Nagoya, Kiev, and elsewhere are being considered.
