Yesterday was the day the community had been waiting for. A Youtube livestream with the Quantstamp team followed by an AMA hosted on Reddit.
Richard Ma, CEO and co-founder of Quantstamp kicked things of with his throughts and experiences from the YCombinator experience followed by a tehcnical walktrough of the network and subsequent demo of the automated auditing tool that is live on site today.
Richard also spoke about securing the intellectual property that has been developed during these hectic months. By filing patents and securing their findings Quantstamp will take advantage of their first-mover-advantage and ensure that Quantstamp becomes the true “VeriSign of the blockchain”
Richard also announced that Quantstamp will be auditing the Interactive Initial Coin Offering that has been proposed by Ethereum Creator Vitalik Buterin together with Jason Teutsch from TrueBit Protocol and Christopher Brow from Modular Network.

The live stream was also followed by a Reddit hosted AMA where the Quantstamp team answered the community’s questions.
The whole thread can be read here but some interesting answers to highlight.
With larger corporations like fujitsu and PWC stepping into the blockchain auditing space, how do you plan to stay ahead of the curve?
I don’t believe we’re directly competing with organisations with Fujitsu and PWC in this market. Right now smart contracts are growing at an exponential rate, so there is room for lots of companies to play in the space. We want to work together hand-in-hand with these people to advance the ecosystem together.
It was mentioned that marketing would be put on the back burner until after Y Combinator Demo Day. Besides for appearing on various Crypto Podcasts/Youtube interviews, what avenues are you interested in advertising?

We’ll look for other opportunities which make sense to promote the platform and the auditing services we provide.
