Frequently asked questions

What clients usually engage your Ethereum Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of Ethereum talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

Fintalent is not a staffing agency. We are a community of best-in-class Ethereum professionals, highly specialized within their domains. We have streamlined the process of engaging the best Ethereum talent and are able to provide clients with Ethereum professionals within 48 hours of first engaging them. We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Which skills and expertise do your Fintalents have?

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted Ethereum professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Ethereum consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives. The average working experience is 6.9 years and 80% of all Fintalents range from 3-12 years into their careers.

Our Ethereum consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Ethereum talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Ethereum talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Ethereum consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your hire for any reason then we are able to find a replacement at short notice. There is no minimum commitment per project, but generally projects last at least 5 days and can last 12+ months.

Everything you need to know about Ethereum

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is a public blockchain platform that can run smart contracts. It is a decentralized virtual machine that executes peer-to-peer contracts without the need of a third party. Ethereum was proposed by an anonymous individual or group in late 2013 and its first live version was released in 2015. Ethereum as observed by Fintalent’s Ethereum Consultants, has gone on to be one of the strongest cryptocurrencies alongside Bitcoin.

Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference. These apps run on a custom built blockchain. The first successful implementation of smart contracts was the Ethereum Virtual Machine in 2000. It allowed anyone to create and execute programs using their own language (code) and storage media (memory). Ethereum has now become the most popular cryptocurrency in the world because it has successfully implemented these revolutionary technologies with its own currency, Ether, which is also used by other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin

Issues with Ethereum
The main issue with cryptocurrencies is their volatility. They can change in value from one minute to another due to supply and demand fluctuations. For example, on January 1st 2017, the price of a bitcoin was around $1,000 USD but on January 1st 2018 it was around $13,000 USD and further fluctuations have been observed to date. This can be risky for investors and buyers. Therefore, the Ethereum development team created a way to reduce this volatility by using the Ethereum blockchain. As explained before, the Ethereum blockchain uses smart contracts which have no human interference and are able to execute themselves without interruption. The Ethereum Foundation is a non-profit foundation that is the developers’ and backers’ behind the Ethereum blockchain. The main purpose of its existence is to promote the development of smart contracts technology.

In order to create an economy based on Ethereum, you need to first create your own cryptocurrency. This might look like a complicated task but it’s actually very easy. All you need to do is install the free client for your preferred client platform (Linux, Windows, macOS, or even mobile phone) and follow some simple instructions. You can choose from different mining software like CGMiner & BFGMiner among many others. Like Bitcoin, everything that happens inside these networks is saved on a transparent distributed ledger called ‘the blockchain’. This means that there are no third parties involved, this is the most popular benefit of the blockchain technology.

Once you have your own cryptocurrency and a mining software installed, you can start mining by choosing a pool from mining pools list. One of these pools is F2Pool, one of the biggest mining pools in the world that supports many cryptocurrencies including Ethereum. You can mine for your own currencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum but it might be worth to switch over to other coins like Dogecoin if you have some spare processing power available. Some miners might also prefer to mine altcoins such as Litecoin or Vertcoin instead of Bitcoin because they can make more money with this alternative crypto-coins.

Mining might sound complicated but it is actually very easy to do. It’s a way of generating new cryptocurrencies while helping the networks and platforms grow. The more people mine, the stronger the networks become with higher hash rates and better security. Mining is crucial for these platforms to work properly. The currencies are all built on code which means that a program defines how coins are created and distributed. When you mine for a cryptocurrency, you can either choose one of the already established coins like Bitcoin or Ethereum or you can create your own coin by forking an existing one like in the case of Litecoin which is based on Bitcoin’s code but with some variations to it.

Security:

Ethereum’s code is immutable and cannot be manipulated or hacked by any outside party because its decentralized network serves as a trustless consensus mechanism allowing it to run forever. Once programmed into the blockchain, there is no way for anyone to change or remove this code, so this ensures its immutability and security. It’s a trustless network because no one controls it, meaning that you don’t have to trust anyone with your assets.

As a founder CEO, I’ve been evaluating our exit readiness and other options. Fintalent.io provided me with an expert who helped me to understand the value of our business. He took a closer look at our internal KPI and structures, to make sure we’re set up in the most professional way possible.
