BlockCAT: smart contracts for everyone

An overview of BlockCAT platform and how it will bring smart contracts to the masses 
24 August 2017   1170

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.
