Q: In your opinion, what is the biggest challenge for this DogData project?
A: Getting all of our technological solutions was a big challenge. From requirement gathering to analysis, mockup design, actual design and implementation, testing, and launching was hectic and required a lot of funds. However with hard work, dedication and perseverance we got through most of them and today we have hosted a range of technological solutions including the PedigreeChian Blockchain explorer, DogExpert, Unique, sleek and elegant landing page design, a range of intuitive learning solutions, DNA Hunter, Smart Contract and so much more.
Q: Can you tell me what the main role of Blockchain technology in DogData project? And also, can you please tell me the benefits of having the ETHBN token?
A: The benefit of blockchain technology cannot be overemphasized. Everyone knows the pedigree of blockchain and the reason why it is the future of tomorrow. Over the years kennel clubs and other dog bodies have centralized and hoarded information about dogs through their databases. Some of the information is not readily available when dog owners, vets, and breeders want it and some of the information is mutilated. No one checks the information because they are governed by a central body and pet owners are at the receiving end of the inefficiencies.
It is apparent that the dog industries needs technological innovation to help with capturing information’s about dogs. Currently vaccination records of dogs are managed by individual organizations and there is no way to effectively and accurately manage and track vaccination records of our pets? With ownership records either missing or forged, vaccination and other pet records centrally stored across a multitude of on and offline sources, cannot help with the management of dogs worldwide. However, the solution to all this problem is the blockchain technology and DogData has taking the first step to utilize it in the pet industry. With Blockchain technology pet information would be properly secured, transparent, immutable and decentralized. The blockchain technology ensures maximum productivity and scalability.
One of DogData solution that runs on the Blockchain technology is the PedigreeChain International Dog Registration Blockchain. Its an International Dog owner Registration and Rabies vaccination blockchain that is easy to use for Dog breeders and Veterinary vaccination registration for all Dogs using immutable date stamped blockchain technology. Another solution that runs on the blockchain technology is the Smart contract that ensures that dog sales and agreements are facilitaled without the need of a third party or an escrow agent. It enforces contract terms and records cannot be altered
The Etherbone token is a digital currency and can be used on the dog data market place as discount vouchers or as medium of exchange for the purchase of pet products and services. It is built on an existing blockchain technology and can be mined, eared or bought and can also be used globally. With the Etherbone token all transactions are recorded on the blockchain technology which makes it immutable, traceable, and viewable by anyone from any part of the world but the transaction parties would remain anonymous
Q: Have you talked with any exchanges about their interest in enabling your ETHBN token? which exchange it is?
A: Yes we have discussed with Bitforex and the event is slated for May 2020. The objective of the Initial Exchange offer (IEO) is to increase awareness of DogData products and services, Raise funding, phase funding, provide liquidity to investors, expand the customer base and start the Etherbone Token Economy.
That’s all for this interview edition, thank you for taking this interview with me. It’s mean a lot for me and investors of course. I wish you the best for your DogData Project!
