When evaluating a blockchain team, it is crucial to consider their skills and experience. Not all teams that have developed stores or platforms can deliver high-quality blockchain projects. Look for teams with proven experience in successfully launching projects, such as functioning exchanges and tokens with a substantial user base and large capitalization. The team should have a comprehensive understanding of blockchain and cryptocurrencies from both technical and user perspectives. It is important to assess how the team plans to ensure liquidity, profitability, scalability, and security measures to prevent hacking.
Reviews and reputation are important factors to consider. Since many companies are new to the blockchain industry, it is essential to verify the legitimacy and customer base of the company. Rating sites and platforms can provide valuable insights:
Verify if the team is PCI DSS certified by visiting https://getpci.com/. Additionally, check if their smart contracts have been verified by reputable firms such as Certik (https://www.certik.com/).
Pay attention to the types of products the team has successfully worked on and launched, including crypto exchanges, DeFi platforms compatible with various networks and standards (EVM-compatible, Bitcoin, Solana, etc.), NFT marketplaces, on/off-ramp services, and custodial/non-custodial wallets.
The quality of communication and cooperation is crucial. Even prominent teams can make the mistake of taking on additional clients when already overloaded, resulting in project delays or even complete stoppages. A reliable team should have an account manager available 24/7, well-versed in the technical aspects of projects. Regular progress reports, such as bi-weekly demos, help ensure transparency and keep the client confident in the team's progress and direction.
