The platform’s blockchain-agnostic, serverless approach makes it possible for developers of any skillset to build data-rich applications on blockchain
Esprezzo, the Boston- and San Francisco-based startup democratizing access to blockchain development, announced today the launch of its programmable middleware enabling front-end and back-end engineers to build data-rich applications interoperable with blockchain.
Today, development on blockchain is currently limited by slow data read and write times, inaccessibility for front-end engineers caused by its decentralized nature and the fact that the technology requires extensive knowledge of low-level software languages such as Go, C# and C++.
Esprezzo offers engineers of all skillsets a solution to these barriers. The blockchain-as-a-service offering doesn’t require knowledge of low-level software languages, making it usable for both front-end and back-end engineers. And, with a middleware that is 100 percent 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.
“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,” said Remy Carpinito, CEO and co-founder, Esprezzo. “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 to serve as the hallmark data-rich application built on blockchain using the Esprezzo platform.
Esprezzo is a Boston-based and San Francisco-based startup founded by Remy Carpinito and Alan Wilhelm, the founding team of CampusTap.
Esprezzo’s goal is to make it seamless for enterprises and modern product developers to build data-rich web and mobile products that are interoperable with blockchain technology. Our middleware allows for the exchange of private and public data from private enterprise applications to smart contracts on the Esprezzo MainNet and/or the Public Ethereum network.
