Feedback summary: 

The new platform is simple to navigate, reflects current market trends, and lets investors easily deposit digital assets. Internally, the site was well received and was delivered on time and within budget. The team was easy to work with and exhibited attentiveness, organization, and good taste.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work for a digital hedge fund focused on crypto wealth optimization. We use high-frequency algorithms, arbitrage, and portfolio trading techniques to generate returns on the digital assets our clients invest.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenges were you trying to address with Ethworks?

After launching the digital hedge fund in February 2017, we needed a more user-friendly platform for our investors, including a homepage that reflects current cryptomarket alternatives.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our company’s efforts prioritize our backend and trading, rather than the user experience on our platform. Since web development is not our focus, we hired Ethworks to modernize and improve our site’s design. As our site is not yet scaled for organic web traffic, development work catered to our current clients. The team provided high-quality coding to create a more intuitive experience for our investors.

How did you come to work with Ethworks?

During our search for potential developers, we found Ethworks on Behance.net.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested around €20,000 euro ($24,088).

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Ethworks around September of 2017, and have completed the initial project. We still have new tasks to complete, as there’s always work that needs to be done. Since our partnership worked so well the first time, we plan to continue working with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Ethworks did a fantastic job on the website. It looks very professional and performs much better. Since the team completed this project, our investors have been engaging much more effectively with the platform. They’re able to efficiently locate topical information, and find it easier to deposit money. Internally, our team has been happy with the results of this engagement.

Our firm is not looking for growth at this point; we don't solicit new clients online. The site exclusively serves our private investors, who are basically inbound to our sales. The metrics we monitor are focused on our current customer base. We’ve received positive feedback from our clients, who are very satisfied with the site’s new look and feel.

How did Ethworks perform from a project management standpoint?

The team was very easy to work with. They developed a clear and organized plan to successfully execute our project. All the work we requested was done on time and within our budget.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Ethwork’s methodology and close collaboration are their greatest strengths. The team was very attentive and has excellent taste. They provided everything we needed, and their work yielded a high-quality deliverable.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The site was originally established to assist in reaching fundraising goals, which were met following the rollout. They produced high-quality code, managed the project effectively, and delivered all aspects of the project on time.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Verify. We’re a company that allows users to buy, sell, and support various products using cryptocurrency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was the scope of their involvement?

We went to EthWorks with an idea and a general description of what we wanted to accomplish. We had a relatively detailed outline of the solution and how we planned to approach it. Natalia [UI/UX, Graphic Designer, EthWorks] did an excellent job of asking all the right questions to understand the challenge we were trying to solve. She was happy to lend a hand and explain how the process would work.

The main purpose of the website was to explain the concept behind Verify to people that don’t know anything about it. We had ideas around the concept and the layout for the site, and they selected the color palette and designed the graphics/illustrations. We had the main site page, which focuses on our vision and what we’re seeking to accomplish. Then we had a more detailed page that explains how it actually works. We also had a token sale page where contributors could see progress on how much we’d raised so far and how they could contribute.

They went on to create wireframes and eventually build out the site using HTML and CSS with a bit of JavaScript. The project wasn’t heavy on the development side; a lot of it was just illustration and design. We initially engaged them for design and a little development but later engaged them to do some of our contract work, which was primarily development.

What is the team composition?

I worked with Natalia and Marek [Blockchain Developer, EthWorks]. Natalia was responsible for a lot of the design side and illustrations, while Marek took a lead on the development work.

How did you come to work with EthWorks?

I found them through Dribbble. We were looking at various profiles and I really liked a previous project that they worked on. We considered 5-6 out of 30+ agencies, and I ended up choosing EthWorks because of their expertise. They’re very specific in the sort of work that they take and primarily work on Ethereum based projects. They had a lot of experience with the exact type of project that we were looking to develop. The quality of their work is amazing. I saw a lot of examples from their Dribbble page, and they did a phenomenal job with our project.

How much have you invested with them?

$25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in October 2017 and concluded in December.

SOLUTION

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We initially set the website up for our token sale. We were looking to raise $2.5 million maximum, and we were able to achieve that.

How did EthWorks perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve done a few projects before, and there were always challenges with communication and missed deadlines. EthWorks did a stellar job in both estimation and delivery. We communicated through email, and they were very responsive.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their quality is impressive. We came into the project with very high expectations, and they delivered.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It’s a good idea to engage ahead of time because it’s just 2-3 people at the company and they need time to plan ahead. Contact them early. If you work with them, I’m sure the project will meet your expectations.

5.0
Overall Score We’ve had a fantastic experience with them. If anyone is considering EthWorks, they should definitely go ahead.
