The following content is organized according to the interview content:

Q1: Can you introduce your business model? How to make a profit through Blockstack?

Xan: The purpose of creating Blockstack is not to make money for early developers. Now we are like Ethereum, which just started in 2015. Our goal is to provide developers with a decentralized development platform. In the future, we will establish an emerging blockchain ecosystem that is self-sufficient. The value of the system lies not in business profitability and revenue, but in the entire network itself, allowing more and more developers to settle in Blockstack and develop more blockchain applications and use cases, and these blockchain applications will expand their respective Business model.

Q2: How do you attract developers to Blockstack to develop DApp?

Xan: Our development process is especially simple. DApp developers can quickly and easily learn how to develop DApp applications on our platform. They can also show their skills on the platform through our online “Hack Marathon” competition. In addition, we also have APP mining incentives, we will provide DApp developers with a $100,000 bitcoin reward every month.

Q3: How many DApp developers are currently on the Blockstack platform? What are the characteristics of the geographical distribution of developers?

Xan: At present, there are about 7,000 DApp developers on the Blockstack platform. Most of our developers come from Western countries such as the United States and Europe, but Hank and I are here today because we have seen the importance of the Chinese market. As we all know, China and Japan and other Asian countries have deep research on blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and decentralized applications. For us, China is a very important market.

Q4: Is there a lot of gaming DApps on Blockstack?

Xan: Not yet, mainly because our smart contract language is Clarity, our test network is online, but our main network is not online yet. We expect our main network to be online later this year. To develop some financial management DApps or betting DApps, we need to update our smart contract language. We are also looking forward to some of these applications on our platform in the future. Most of the devices that appear on our platform are still used in people's daily life, such as communication applications.

Q5: In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, did Ali (Blockstack founder) say that it cost $2 million to get the SEC's support? Where is this $2 million spent?

Xan: The point I need to make here is that we didn't pay the SEC a penny. We spent $2 million to draft the first SEC-approved ICO law and established the first SEC-approved law. The framework, and the pay for the staff who worked hard in the process, took up nearly 10 months. Because we are the first project to conduct ICO in accordance with Reg A+ through SEC audit, there is no precedent for any precedent, so we need to spend a long time educating the SEC to explain blockchain technology and cryptocurrency, just because we are In the first case, we have to set a good example for the blockchain and cryptocurrency industries. We can't make mistakes, so we spent a lot of time polishing and finalizing the details.

Q6: What is the current progress of ICO? Can Chinese residents participate?

Xan: I can't say too much about the details of ICO. According to the SEC, we have to wait until the end of the ICO to disclose the number of people participating in the ICO and the amount of funds raised. But what I can say now is that the current ICO is doing very well. Because I don't know much about Chinese law, and whether Chinese citizens can participate depends on local laws.

Q7: When is STX (Blockstack Token) expected to trade on the exchange?

Xan: After the end of ICO, after about 2 weeks to 1 month, we will issue tokens. After the investors get the tokens, they can trade freely. At that time, STX (Blockstack tokens) will also be traded on the exchange.

Q8: How do you evaluate EOS and DApp on Ethereum?

Xan: I am very optimistic about applications such as Defi, MakerDAO, and Compound. I think they have solved some different problems. I am also looking forward to the future. On our platform, developers can create DApps similar to the above.
