BlockCAT: smart contracts for everyone

An overview of BlockCAT platform and how it will bring smart contracts to the masses 
24 August 2017   2419

A big problem with Ethereum smart contracts is that they hold all of this power, but it's completely inaccessible to an everyday user: you have to have both the programming know-how and the skills in order to actually make anything happen.

That's why there's BlockCAT - a platform aiming to bring smart contracts to the masses.

What we're trying to do essentially is to try and put this power in the hands of the everyday user, where we will write the contracts on their behalf and then they will be able to use it just with a few clicks of like a web interface instead.

Eric Huang
CEO of BlockCAT

As reported, BlockCAT lets anyone "create, manage, and deploy smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain with just a few clicks. No programming required".

The team has just successfully finished its ICO and now there're preparations being made in order to add BlockCAT tokens to the exchanges' lists. For now, CAT tokens are listed on EtherDelta.

As for the others exchanges, the company prefers not to disclose the details before the deal is made:

As for the future plans, one of the most requested feature is the possibility to use BlockCAT to run your own ICO. Thus, according to the company, it’s something they’re looking into regarding legality and technicality. The feature is possible, but not yet confirmed.

Following the trial court of the city of Thessaloniki, the Greek Areopagus decided to extradite Alexander Vinnik, suspected of laundering $ 4 billion through the BTC-e cryptocurrency exchange, to France. Thus, the appeal of Russian lawyers was rejected, reports TASS referring to the chairman of the court Angelique Aliferopoul.

After the announcement of the verdict, Alexander Vinnik declared that he would continue the hunger strike against the arbitrary rule of the Greek authorities, which began in mid-November.

I have been starving for 24 days. Yesterday I was weighed; according to the documents, I lost 8 kg. But they did not immediately begin to weigh me, only on the third day. So I lost 9 kg. If I'll be extradited to Moscow, I will stop starving.

Alexander Vinnik was detained in Greece at the request of the American authorities on July 25, 2017. In June 2018, Vinnik was arrested in absentia in Russia on charges of cyber fraud on a large scale.

At the moment, there have been several court decisions on the extradition of Vinnik - at the request of the United States, at the request of France and two decisions at the request of Russia. The final decision on the case will take the Minister of Justice of Greece.
