Token News conducted an interview with Tezos engineer, Vincent Bernardoff.

TN
What are some of the benefits of Tezos?

Tezos
It safer to use because the exchanges can be mathematically proven, so there is less risk when using the blockchain platform compared to others. It’s also easier to write correct smart contracts. it can also self upgrade, so if there are good ideas floating around stakeholders can vote to implement these ideas. So if there is a good idea and use on another project, users can vote to integrate that idea into Tezos. We think this is necessary for the future of the project.

TN
What do you think are the prospects for Tezos for the next 3 years? Five years? Do you have any forecast?

Tezos
We want to advance in many areas. For example we want to fund a research grant to promote education to help teach student developer skills. Of course our first goal is to release a functional blockchain and ensure everything goes well. We want to implement privacy like Zcash in order to transfer money completely anonymously. we want to improve verification speed using that same technology. We also want to spread Tezos many users, especially those users with many assets, we want them to use Tezos instead of some other smart contract program.

TN
Will you be promoting in any specific market?

Tezos
I think it will be the financial market. Banks – maybe even central banks, the financial industry, or any industry that has a lot of stakes or a lot of money to put in smart contracts. I think we might target the financial markets.

TN
What kind of features or benefits will users get from using Tezos? Any special services or benefits?

Tezos
We want Tezos to be a payment network. It’s not like Bitcoin where transactions are expensive; we wanted to make it really easy to use Tezos as a currency and spend it. There are lite wallets for mobile phones, so it should be very easy to use. We also want to promote the use of Tezos for recurring payments. Tezos is a platform where you can spend currency but also use Smart contracts. We want to be good at payments and also smart contracts.

TN
Do you have any target year to take over Bitcoin and Ethereum?

Tezos
In a year or two, it will be much clearer how the platform will develop. I’d say 1 or 2 years after the launch, it will be very clear if Tezos develops as planned. I’m confident will be very widespread at that time. I’m also confident that lots of technology, like Zcash technology, will really explode. It’s just the beginning.

TN
So later this year and several years following that?

Tezos
Yes I’m sure blockchain technology in a few years will look really different. what we have now is just the basic beginning of blockchain.

TN
I’m looking forward to that.

Tezos
Me too.

TN
Thank you so much for your time.

Tezos
Thank you so much.
