Feedback summary: 

Because the company is in stealth mode, metrics can’t be shared. However, the company’s success over the years wouldn’t be possible without PixelPlex’s involvement, efficiency, and talent.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm founder and CEO of a stealth VR company that produces tools for VR developers and lovers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PixelPlex?

We needed development support that went beyond full-stack development. We required knowledge of a full spectrum of programming languages and skillsets.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

PixelPlex applied for work through AngelList. Out of over 100 applicants, we chose them for their experience and wide range of development and design skillsets.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Our company is in stealth mode, so I can't elaborate beyond saying that PixelPlex got their hands dirty all over the place. They have strong knowledge of web stacks and 3D game engines like Unity and Unreal.

What was the team composition?

They assigned a project manager and three developers.

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Our company is the market leader in our niche and we take pride in being highly efficient. PixelPlex fit well into our culture and work ethic.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Overall, it has been a positive experience and deadlines have been met 98% of the time. The hardest part was the time zone difference, but there isn't much that can be done about that. I'd still chose PixelPlex over other options given this information.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They have hard-working and brilliant people, as well as good prices.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The time zone difference is not ideal, but we make it work.

The platform successfully launched to a public test network. PixelPlex impressed with their prompt turnarounds, frequent progress updates, and deep understanding of project requirements. Their extensive knowledge of blockchain systems made them a valuable partner. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm a founder of Obito, an asset tokenization platform based on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PixelPlex?

We hired PixelPlex to create the proof of concept (POC) for our platform. The work included backend and blockchain communication mechanics, UI design, and integration with the backend.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to produce a POC in accordance with our data, parameters, and requirements.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We chose PixelPlex based on references, recommendations, and their expertise with similar projects.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They developed functionalities for issuing blockchain “tokens” that represent financial assets. The tokens are records of the asset parameters and standard Bitcoin Cash transactions, rather than standard Ethereum smart contract tokens.

What was the team composition?

The team included two backend developers, one frontend developer, one blockchain development consultant, and one project manager and business analyst.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

They delivered the POC in several iterations, depending on the functionalities we required. We launched and presented a working model of the system running on a public Bitcoin Cash test network.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Our team and PixelPlex maintained constant, close communication. They regularly explained the state of the project, and made timely changes according to our requirements.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were most impressed by their understanding of blockchain and blockchain-based systems, as well as their ability to apply this knowledge while creating user-friendly software.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The requirements gathering process felt a bit impromptu, but that was partially caused by the tight timeframe.

Feedback summary: 

PixelPlay was organized and efficient, effectively mobilizing a diverse team. End users love their work, giving it highly positive reviews. Although transparency could've been better, the entire team was incredibly skilled and knowledgeable.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the founder and president of Peerplays Blockchain Standards Association (PBSA), a nonprofit organization that supports the development of provably fair gaming on the Peerplays blockchain.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PixelPlex?

We originally hired them to develop the Core wallet application for Peerplays, as well as minor blockchain protocol updates. They eventually started working on other projects.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal with Peerplays is to create a Graphene-based blockchain ecosystem of wagering and tournament products and apps, offering online bettors a real alternative to secretive and unfair third-party betting operators and greater transparency. The technical solution to that is generation of truly random, unpredictable values to be used as seed for RNG to determine outcomes of bets and games as it relates to 5050.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found them on Upwork. We were looking at other candidates, but we chose PixelPlex based on their expertise and as a result of our interviews.

Describe the project in detail.

PixelPlex has worked on a few different projects, including our wallet development and various games. A few of the games they designed are a P2P tournament style game of rock, paper, scissors and a blockchain-based app for 50-50 raffles. They did minor updates to our blockchain protocol, implementing the mechanics for asset/raffle ticket generation as well as random winner selection on blockchain levels. The did design and dev (including frontend and backend) for our web app and wallet, providing GUI representation and a Bitcoin sidechain running on our platform.

What was the team composition?

Our primary point of contact was a project manager, who had a team of around 12 blockchain developers, as well as a frontend developer and a graphic designer. The team composition changed depending on the project requirements.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We've had extremely positive reviews on Pixelplex's technical accomplishments.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their project manager is dedicated and effectively leads the team. They're capable of handling their work and delivering results.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The most impressive part about PixelPlex is their expertise, capability, and skills in C++ blockchain protocol development, along with the ability to find elegant solutions to complex issues and limitations of blockchain technology.

Are there any areas for improvement?

PixelPlex has a policy of restricting contact between their developers and the outside public. This is partially covered by their project management and business analysis staff.

Feedback summary: 

PixelPlex is unafraid to experiment with the latest blockchain technologies, and their dedication is evident as they strive to create the greatest product possible. They work efficiently and are readily accessible, making a remote development project hassle-free.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder and CEO or MiniWager, a blockchain-based platform that provides e-sports competitions with money rewards using various cryptocurrency payment methods.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PixelPlex?

Our in-house team has limited experience with blockchain, so we hired PixelPlex to help us navigate this emerging technology for our site.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

My internal team handled the initial brainstorming, and we collaborated with PixelPlex to determine what was feasible. The design and UI/UX were both prepared by my in-house team, while PixelPlex managed the backend. Once we handed off our work, they had some freedom to make modifications to clean up the visuals and make the site responsive.

To build the site, they utilized the core web technologies—HTML, CSS, JavaScript—as well as a few different frameworks but primarily React. They have the smart contracts that they publish to the blockchain, and they implemented a cryptowallet specifically for our platform. They are clearly well-versed in blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies. They are able to make strong suggestions for which to use and which to avoid.

What is the team composition?

I work with two project managers and two developers.

How did you come to work with PixelPlex?

I originally found them through their portfolio website. I had worked with them in the past, and I was willing to give them a bigger project this time because they have proven to be reliable.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent more than $20,000 for this project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in September 2017, and we’re in the final stages of QA. We are preparing for an upcoming launch.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have hit our goals for production time and quality. I’ve worked with a number of freelance developers and other digital studios, but I’ve never worked with a team like this that goes beyond the requirements and my goals. In projects like this, everything is black and white, and if you don’t define it in the scope, it might not get developed. What I appreciate about PixelPlex is that they’ll notice the gaps in my documentation and they fulfill them even if they weren’t required to by the contract. They have the passion to make it perfect as opposed to simply meeting requirements in order to get paid. I know they’re excited about the project, and I know they’ll make it the way it should be.

How did PixelPlex perform from a project management standpoint?

I have two overlapping projects with them, and I conveniently have separate project managers. The lines of communication are clear and defined through Skype and email. I have confidence that I can access them at almost any hour, which is comforting when working with a remote team. They provide detailed updates and map out the information for me.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re actively growing as a company. They don’t operate like somebody hired from a freelance site where you would be unsure of the quality you’re receiving. PixelPlex is legitimate, and they experiment with new technologies. Their projects aren’t cookie-cutter. They’re taking on innovative ideas and making them dynamic.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’re a talented and growing company that has done a good job of scaling. It’s hard to say where they could improve.

Any advice for potential customers?

It would be easy to get caught up in scope creep during most projects. In order to succeed, it’s best to map out the most critical elements and stick to that plan. Keep an organized document of what you want.

Feedback summary: 

PixelPlex’s efforts contributed to a successful crowdsale campaign and helped grow the business. While a direct line of communication between internal stakeholders and developers would be beneficial, strong project management helped ensure a smooth delivery. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CTO at KICKICO, a next-generation blockchain-based crowdfunding platform. Our tool allows entrepreneurs, investors, and services to interact in one place while providing all the advantages of blockchain technology. With KICKCO, community members maintain a required level of transparency and integrity.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PixelPlex?

PixelPlex originally provided us with advice and expertise in Solidity smart contract development. We would later expand their role to develop server-based applications that facilitated GUI-to-blockchain communication.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to launch a successful crowdsale campaign, distribute ERC20 tokens via Solidity smart contracts (for later use on our platform), and provide potential users with information about the crowdsale campaign.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Another company had worked with PixelPlex in the past and recommended them to us. We interviewed them, and they seemed to know what they were doing, so we went forward with the project.

Describe the project in detail.

The scope of the project followed the typical project outline: an assessment and planning stage, project initiation, development, QA and stabilization, and project release. During these stages, PixelPlex mapped out the initial coin offering (ICO) smart contract development process and helped us formulate them correctly. They then developed a set of Solidity smart contracts. Afterward, we expanded their scope to build the required backend services that would help us connect contracts to the GUI. Following the final QA and stabilization, they supported us with the project delivery.

What was the team composition?

They assigned a project manager who served as our primary point of contact. Additionally, they provided two Solidity developers, a Node.js backend developer, and a QA engineer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

This project has helped our business go live. We held a successful ICO campaign and even managed to attract enough attention to be targeted by hackers—we survived their attack. They contributed to the start of our ever-growing business.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They had a dedicated project manager who was responsible for leveraging our business requirements with the technology constraints. The manager also reported updates on the team’s work. As for their effectiveness, PixelPlex delivered everything we asked of them on time with no major issues.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their expertise in both Solidity smart contract and C++ blockchain protocol development was impressive.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We didn’t have any means of direct communications with the actual specialists working on the project. While their business administrator and project manager partially made up for that, we would have liked the ability to speak with other team members.

The platform has grown from a small enterprise to a $1.8 million venture thanks to PixelPlex's outstanding contributions.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CEO and executive creative director of Darkrose Studios, an original IP incubator and transmedia content studio. We create fully immersive multimedia stories. I direct and oversee all aspects of the content creation and platform building process.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PixelPlex?

PixelPlex not only helped us execute a specific vision, but also brought creative, out-of-the-box problem solving skills to the table. Ultimately, they helped us build our entire platform. 

What were your goals for this project?

We aimed to create a synergistic platform that showcased all our content as a unique, user-friendly experience.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found them on Upwork. Several other companies bid on our project, but we were thoroughly impressed with PixelPlex. 

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

They helped us build our award-winning interactive website, our groundbreaking augmented reality app, and our video game demo. My other company also hired them for something similar. 

My team of creatives designed the wireframes and aesthetic for each platform. Then we gave them to PixelPlex and asked, "Can you make this work exactly like this?"

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

A $150,000 passion project turned into a $1.8 million content studio, thanks in large part to platforms that PixelPlex helped us build.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They told us how long they expected each task to take, set up milestones so we remained on track, and maintained touchpoints throughout the process to ensure they fulfilled our our hopes and expectations. Their communication was fantastic, and their process worked as well we could ask for.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They blow us away with their ability to actualize anything you conjure up in your imagination. It's incredible. Other developers say "It can't be done," but PixelPlex says they can, and backs up their words by delivering exactly what they promised. They do that every time.

They don't say the word "can't." They always find a way to make something work in the way you imagined it. If you provide a clear vision, they can execute it. Hiring PixelPlex was one of the best business decisions I've ever made. They are still a valuable asset to our company and support to its success.
