The website contains quite lots of information about founders and advisors. Thus, there are also partners available. Roadmap contains lots of steps of platform development starting from 2014. It is outlined in the precise way. Besides, Whitepaper, there is also Light Paper. In addition, there are bonuses for investors, who participated at the early stages of the pre-ICO or ICO.
Risks and disadvantages
When entering the website, one can see that its connection is not secured. Marketing could be better managed. There is no information about Bitcointalk thread, Youtube channel or Reddit. A significant drawback is the lack of the working product.
Overall, despite the fact, that the project could look difficult for understanding, the team managed to do a huge in terms of platform development. To my mind, the MVP is the only thing it needs for now.
Main goals of ENVIENTA project?
Open Source hardware development: the main goal of ENVIENTA project is to boost open source hardware development and to propagate open source. We believe that if knowledge is a common property, everyone can have the best of it in long-term.
That’s why our slogan is: Open Source Everything.
Decentralised production: Transportation and production costs might be declined by decentralised production of open source hardwares. The cooperation with local manufacturers might occur boom in the region, increasing employment rate mediately. Beside price reduction, the ecological footprint might be decreased, too. Local economy might increase, generating significant social benefits.
Solutions for social problems and sustainability: Since its start, ENVIENTA project pays special attention to solutions of actual social challenges. We are aiming to provide solutions for everyone, via the above mentioned components (open source and decentralised production), such as low-cost and sustainable living, local food and energy production or global water shortage. We believe that solving these challenges is possible and we want to be part of it.
Why does ENVIENTA’s ecosystem provide better than a traditional startup method, protected with patents?
In case of an average startup each and every single task and problem have to be solved by the startup. The company has to develop and produce, as well as to do the marketing and the sale. ENVIENTA works project-based and with ad hoc communities. There is no fixed company structure or fixed people. There might be overlaps among projects. Our functioning and working structure is fully dynamic. Each participant concentrates on what he/she has to do and good at. The transactions are done by contracts, excluding human factors.
The ENVIENTA platform supports the implementation of the project, such as searching participants, organising production and sale of thel the products. All these make project owners’ life easier. Furthermore, due to open source philosophy we work together with the buyers from the beginning of products’ planning. They can make suggestions, tests and they can support the project via community funds or other ways.
Blurring the boundaries between the participants reduces the risk of the project. From the buyers side it ensures that the product keeps produced, as it might be continued by anyone due to open source approach.
Why do we need crypto tokens to complete our goals?
ENVIENTA is a cross-border, global project with many different participants. Using a system based on cryptocurrency makes much easier the transactions.
Another goal is to keep ENVIENTA’s inner economic system the most independent by other economic systems.
Beside economic benefits cryptocurrencies have many technological advantages, as well. Processes are automatised by smart contracts, and an automatic reputation system can be created. It is totally autonom, trustless ecosystem, owned by noone (neither any company nor anyone)
Why has ENVIENTA chosen raising capital via ICO?
ENVIENTA is an open, community project, since it has started. In case of a project, such as this one, traditional venture capital investment (VC) or going public (IPO) was not a solution for us, as having neither a company nor a closed production process (software, patent, trademark etc.) that could serve as a business share. ENVIENTA Foundation will spend all the money that comes in via ICO on establishing the ecosystem, with the ENV token as money inside the system. The created ecosystem will not be owned by ENVIENTA Foundation. The ecosystem runs and works independently from ENVIENTA Foundation, in an autonom way.
Why do we sell only 42,5% of the tokens during the ICO?
The aim of the ICO is to build the base of the ENVIENTA ecosystem: completing the platform and educational materials, finishing the maker spaces and tutorial centers, preparing collaborations with local manufacturers etc. The launch of the ecosystem is only the first step. The rest of the tokens can be taken out via token mining, through activities that serves the creation of the ecosystem. Through the functioning period of the system will be clarified which are those activities. So, with the rest of the tokens we will support promising open source projects, establishing new production places, further development of the platform, etc., according to experiences gained during functioning, and in cooperation with the community.
What kind of a blockchain will serve ENVIENTA’s ecosystem? What kind of a token is ENV?
ENVIENTA’s ecosystem will run on the Ethereum blockchain. ENV is a standard ERC20 token that can he hold in any Ethereum wallet.
