Jorge Cabrera: Please kindly tell us about your smart contracts? Have you done any audits? How secure are the smart contracts and how about safety from vulnerabilities?
Shane Benjamin: The token smart contract we used is the same as Uniswap and Compound for the UNI and COMP token, we believe these are stable smart contract structures.
Jorge Cabrera: What is your opinion on NFTs? How can Porta take advantage of this trend?
Shane Benjamin: We believe NFTs are not just a trend, they are a way for creators to share their art and collectors to curate pieces of culture to their own tastes. It is still very early for NFTs and we want to lead on bringing them to everyone.
We do have plans for NFTs to be built out on the Porta platform as we feel there is plenty of room for innovation in this space.
