● Staff Interview: 10 Questions & Answers with Ellie Gang, Blockchain Service Engineer
- Please introduce yourself.
My name is Ellie, I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley. I contemplate and research how beauty and blockchain can come together into a service.
- What is your responsibility at Cosmochain?
As a blockchain service engineer at Cosmochain, I try to research and develop a service that females — primary target users of beauty services — can use conveniently despite the fact that some may not be familiar with blockchain.
- One of the most frequently asked questions in blockchain are regarding “mainnet” selection. How is this process going?
From last year, we have been carefully examining several mainnets. We have gone through considerable internal discussion, and are planning to make an official announcement in the near future.
- Could you tell us what the standards are for selecting a mainnet?
Blockchain services are often thought to be slower than conventional services, and we are trying to break this prejudice. Thus, we prioritize 3S (speed, security, scalability).
- Are there a lot of love calls for Cosmochain? If so, why is it?
Cosmochain almost deserves the label “hot”, and we really do get a lot of love calls. Cosmochain’s top priority is building an attractive service. If the service is attractive and friendly, interests of not only users but also investors and overall industry will grow naturally. I think Cosmochain team is doing well in such aspects.
- How will blockchain be integrated into FitsMe service?
Different blockchain functions will be integrated step by step.
First, we will collect and record 3P (profile, purchase, preference)— data which can be utilized in beauty industry, then refine and process such data to provide various values and services to both consumers and companies. In this process, token rewards will be distributed to users for their contribution. It should be noted that blockchain will not be integrated at the moment of the launching, but will be gradually implemented through updates.
- Why isn’t it integrated right away?
When we launched COSMEE pilot service last year, contrary to our aim to attract female users as our service target, majority of the users were male crypto users, interested in token compensations. Our past experience demonstrated that, regardless of the service’s original purpose, people may use our service as a means to “mine”.
In order to secure true users for our main service FitsMe, we will not integrate blockchain features right away.
- What role will Blockchain play within FitsMe?
First, credibility for our service will be enhanced through fair reward for contribution of data. Second, blockchain will prevent arbitrary manipulation or loss of data created by users within the service.
Through these functions, users will be able to enjoy the service, and Cosmochain will be able to derive insights using credible data.
- How would you evaluate Cosmochain team’s engineering capability?
It may be a personal opinion, but I truly believe that our team’s capability is outstanding. Our team considers elements that previous blockchain services may have missed, and focus on developing UI so that users do not feel the shortcomings of blockchain service, which may be slow and complicated. Our team is constantly growing, and that makes me look forward to continue working with our team.
- Last words to our holders?
More than anything, I would like to express sincere appreciation for the patience in waiting for a good service. Our team will try our best to make better services. Thank you for your interests.
