As an EEA member, Quantstamp is part of the EEA community of organizations working to advance Ethereum and drive industry adoption. In the Q&A below, the EEA interviewed Richard Ma on the ways Quantstamp works with the ecosystem to help Ethereum reach its full potential.
Please introduce your company and yourself briefly.
I am the CEO of Quantstamp, the leader in blockchain security, and a strategic thinker who cares for the wellbeing of those around me. Quantstamp’s mission is to drive the mainstream adoption of blockchain technology through our security services. To date, Quantstamp has performed over 200 audits for our clients and protected more than $100 billion worth of digital assets from hackers.
What first brought you to the EEA, and why did you decide to become a member?
We became a member of the EEA’s broad community and membership base in order to work with other companies around best practices for assisting NGOs, governments, and private industry in implementing Ethereum technology safely. We are excited to bring our experiences to the table including working with the World Economic Forum to help governments and other stakeholders understand the technological choices and trade-offs associated with developing CBDCs, and securing cutting-edge projects like Ethereum 2.0 (Prysm and Teku clients), Maker, Compound, Curve, and Beeple B.20
The infrastructure of tomorrow is being built today, and the EEA is a great place to work on this infrastructure with our peers. We are excited to leverage our security expertise to help other EEA members and the broader private industry make this transition safely.
What are you currently working on with regards to Ethereum? How will end-users benefit from your work?
We are consistently auditing several DeFi and NFT projects at any given time. End-users benefit from our work because they can participate in the digital economy with a higher degree of safety. When someone is interested in using a DeFi protocol or purchasing an NFT-powered asset, they get excited when they hear it was secured by Quantstamp. We are honored to have earned this level of trust and we intend to keep earning it.
What EEA programs are you most excited about?
We are excited about working with the EEA members, community, and team around developing secure technical specifications for enterprise-ready Ethereum implementations. Interoperability is one of Ethereum’s strengths, but each piece needs to be secure to make it work. We are thrilled to be part of the EEA to help make that happen.
