What inspired you to develop BlockMesh, and how did you conceive?

My inspiration for developing BlockMesh stemmed from my firsthand experiences while bootstrapping an e-commerce automation platform. During this period, I relied heavily on proxies to scrape data, and it became evident how crucial data availability is for business success. However, I also encountered numerous proxy networks with questionable practices, often exploiting the small users who powered their networks. This realization motivated me to create a better, more ethical solution. By harnessing the power of blockchain technology and adhering to its principles of openness and fairness, I envisioned BlockMesh as a transparent and fair alternative that would revolutionize the industry.

Can you provide insight into BlockMesh’s progress by sharing any metrics or milestones indicating its traction?

Although we haven’t officially launched yet, our team is making significant strides in building the product. Winning the Renaissance hackathon is a testament to our potential and the solid progress we have made thus far.

As we continue developing and refining our platform, we are focused on laying a robust foundation to support our future growth and success.
