Through strong smart contracts, decentralized escrow, and innovative knowledge-sharing and lead-generation systems, Opporty gives smaller businesses a supportive platform, helping them to survive in a competitive environment.

Opporty Ecosystem
Opporty

The Opporty team is eager to revolutionize the way small and medium companies do business, by creating a business-focused, decentralized, self-governed community which follows digital democracy principles. The Opporty community establishes specific standards and educates other members of the community. These functions are within the realm of possibility due to the Ethereum blockchain.

Why Do You Need Opporty?

Imagine that you have a small law office in Brooklyn. You may have enough clients to support your business, but you want to attract more customers. How are you going to do that?

Digital marketing can be the best solution, but it is complex and expensive. Moreover, you will never be able to compete with bigger law firms, simply because they have bigger marketing budgets.

Another problem is that your competitors may be much more efficient at what they do, simply because they have established standards. You may have tried to implement standards in your own firm, but failed because nobody followed them, and you did not have time to control and oversee every step taken by your employees.

In order to build a successful business, regardless of your field of interest, you will need great marketing and new ways of establishing and controlling the standards of your company’s day-to-day operations. This is exactly what Opporty offers.

How Opporty works

Opporty gives small businesses the ability to increase awareness, improve exposure, and build trust, all for free. Moreover, Opporty rewards users with OPP tokens for contributing their knowledge and expertise to the community. Opporty’s ecosystem of requests, offers, and responses helps companies appeal directly to targeted audiences, to increase conversions.

Opporty solves the problem of implementing standards through blockchain, with its smart contracts, oracles, and decentralized escrow. Experts who standardize rules and regulations are selected by individual communities, based on their knowledge and expertise in the corresponding industry. Experts participate in drawing up smart contracts and resolving issues by acting as escrow arbitrators.

Standards are built into Opporty’s marketplace by default. Smart contracts guarantee that all parties follow the same rules, while decentralized escrow makes sure that all arising issues are resolved in an efficient, unbiased manner.

OCamlPro May Implement Unplanned Tezos Hardfork

Anyone can fork Tezos' blockchain but Foundation says "OCamlPro management does not have the best interests of the Tezos community in mind"
18 June 2019   304

The non-profit organization Tezos Commons Foundation has published an official statement about a potential hardfork, which may be initiated by the French development team OCamlPro, the company's grantee.

As evidence, the organization published the text of an e-mail allegedly sent by Starchain Capital, a recently registered cryptocurrency fund.

According to the document, the management of OCamlPro and Starchain Capital announced a collaboration to develop and implement a fork of the Tezos blockchain called Dune Protocol in September 2019. The letter also says that Starchain Capital is attracting “investments to finance a separate project.”

Representatives of Tezos recalled that the blockchain can hold forks anyone. The problem, according to them, is the “OCamlPro management does not have the best interests of the Tezos community in mind".

We found the text also includes a number of inaccurate (to put it mildly) statements that are intended to exaggerate the position of OCamlPro leadership. They did not create OCaml, Fabrice was not the ‘teacher’ of Tezos co-founder Arthur Breitman, and the main Tezos engineers who were originally at OCamlPro are now working at Nomadic Labs, not OCamlPro.

Executive Director, Tezos Commons Foundation

However, confirmation of whether the letter is an original or a fake has not yet been submitted.

OCamlPro participated in the Tezos grants program and worked on projects, Liquidity and TzScan. However, OCamlPro refused to fully disclose the code of their products, which is one of the conditions for receiving grants. Tezos Foundation announced the termination of funding OCamlPro in case of non-compliance in the second quarter of this year.

In March, the Tezos blockchain project completed the first round of voting for proposals for updating the protocol. The winning bid was ‘Athens A’, which received 18,181 votes.
