As an EEA member, Bitwave is part of the EEA community of organizations working to advance Ethereum and drive industry adoption. In the Q&A below, the EEA interviewed Kunz Mainali, Senior Solution Architect, about how the organization contributes to the Ethereum business ecosystem.

Please introduce your company and yourself.

My name is Kunz Mainali and I am a Senior Solution Architect at Bitwave. We design back and middle office software for companies that deal with crypto and/or digital assets. Our platform allows companies to handle things like crypto and DeFi tax, accounting, bookkeeping and reporting. A lot of companies who are using crypto or DeFi are realizing that they don’t have good processes in place to handle these kinds of things. They want solutions that can automate this, without having to hire people. Our platform provides this in ways that internal finance teams can understand and easily use. 

What first brought you to the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, and why did you decide to become a member?

We heard about the EEA through another company and became interested. We are here above all for the discussion, the opportunity to meet other people in the space who are building critical infrastructure and tooling. 

What are you currently working on with regards to Ethereum? How will end-users benefit from your work? 

One of the things we are building is a payments system to provide an easy way for companies to do on-chain payments using stablecoins for things like invoicing, bill paying or even payroll. We categorize everything before it is sent so the payments can easily feed into the company’s own systems. Some people are scared to get payments in crypto, and we have seen that using stable coins is probably the easiest way to onboard new companies. If everything is dollar denominated it makes more sense in people’s heads.  

How will the EEA enhance your organization’s current efforts? 

The EEA will help us in understanding the use cases that new enterprises are taking on in crypto. We want to keep on top of what is cutting edge so we can help current enterprises solve for these cutting edge issues. We are also interested in thought leadership, understanding how EEA members think about things like staking or regulation.

What EEA programs are you most excited about?

I am in the DRAMA working group, which is great. It is super nice talking to the likes of EY, or C4 and all these other companies across the space about DeFi and how we think about it.
