Esprezzo Simplifies Blockchain Development for Companies and Developers
Boston- and San Francisco-based start-up Esprezzo is aiming to democratise access to blockchain development and has announced the launch of its programmable middleware, enabling front-end and back-end engineers to build data-rich applications interoperable with blockchain. Esprezzo’s hopes to make it significantly simpler for enterprises and modern product developers to build data-rich web and mobile products that are interoperable with blockchain technology.
Development on blockchain can be limited by slow data read and write times, inaccessibility for front-end engineers caused by its decentralized nature, and the need for extensive knowledge of low-level software languages such as Go, C# and C++.
To ameliorate this, Esprezzo intends to offer engineers of all skillsets a solution to these barriers. The blockchain-as-a-service doesn’t require knowledge of low-level software languages, and, with a middleware that is 1 integrated with the Ethereum Protocol and GraphQL, Esprezzo’s MainNet will allow developers to control their applications’ data across a variety of blockchains and networks.
Remy Carpinito, CEO and co-founder of Esprezzo, remarked: “As blockchain continues to rise as the next major foundational technology, the demand for blockchain developers is increasing rapidly – yet the supply is not keeping up. We are building Esprezzo to activate a larger pool of developers, empower them and provide the tools needed to focus on front-end applications rather than the underlying architecture.”
The Esprezzo team previously built CampusTap, a private career networking platform launched in 2013 that currently serves 60 organizations and manages over 1 million user accounts in education institutions and corporations worldwide. In 2018, CampusTap’s entire backend infrastructure will be migrated to blockchain.
