1. Do you have a token?
No, we have chosen to fund ourselves the old classic way! Maybe one day though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
2. Do you have a product?
Yes! Check out lab.superblocks.com, it is the first of several products that makes dApp building easier.
3. When will we be able to read your Whitepaper?
We currently do not have a whitepaper planned. We are spending all of our resources developing great products and staying flexible to demands in a changing environment.
4. Why are you called Superblocks?
The name Superblocks was inspired by the movement in Barcelona where people took back the power of the streets from the cars.
5. Does the Superblocks logo have any significance ?
The characters that are replaced with blocks represent our own language. We have a full alphabet of the Superblocks language!
6. How did Superblocks come into being ?
In May 2013, after giving up on almost everything he owned, Thomas moved out into the forest to live in a tent in the region south of Stockholm. The goal has always been to plan and execute his vision of democratizing coding. The full story can be read in his series:

7. How does Superblocks compare to Ethereum?
Superblocks builds tools for smart contracts that are deployed on Ethereum. We also plan to integrate to more blockchains in the future if they prove popular.
8. Can I contribute to Superblocks open source efforts in any way?
Absolutely! Contributing with documentation, tutorials, code, issues and suggestions are all welcome. You can find everything at https://github.com/SuperblocksHQ
9. Where do you see Superblocks projects 5 years from now?
In five years the need for these types of solutions Superblocks is providing will be very important, under the assumption that blockchain (or any successor) and smart contracts will become more mainstream and important for people. In five years Superblocks will very likely have reached the vision about making it possible for everybody with a computer to deploy their own Super powered DAOs.
10. Where can we find more about Superblocks?
11. Will Superblocks go to the moon ?
Which moon are you talking about? Be more specific.
1. Where can I download Superblocks?
You don't need to download our product! Find Superblocks Lab here lab.superblocks.com
2. What is Superblocks main value proposition?
Everything you need to build your dApp. Go decentralize the world!
3. Is anybody using Superblocks products right now?
Yes! Even Ivan on Tech has a smart contract course that uses Superblocks for the Ethereum section of their smart contract coding course. We also use our own tools to build dApps for companies like Björn Borg.
4. I can’t code. Can I use Superblocks Lab?
We are getting there. That has always been part of our mission, to enable more people to create their own software and services. It will take a few years though.
5. How are you going to get people to use Superblocks Lab?
A lot of the tech is getting mature, so it will be possible to finally focus on making tutorials, videos and additional materials to show what people can do with our open source technology.
We also help courses create great material on Superblocks, if you are making a course and you need extra support just contact us!
Finally we organize and visit hackathons where we help people build dApps. We really love hackathons, so hit us up if you have one :)
1. What is a Decentralized Application (DApp) ?
A Dapp runs its backend, meaning, the base business logic and data, on a decentralized network e.g. Ethereum. The "heart" of the application doesn't live on a central server or authority and it is part of a greater, potentially public, infrastructure that is persistent.
2. What are Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) ?
DAOs are organizations in which the rules are stated in smart contracts on the blockchain enabling transactions in a trustless way. They are one type of dApp.
You can read how our COO explained this in our medium chanel:
1. What is this ?
It is a Meetup group that gathers people to talk about distributed systems, applications, blockchain-based technology and Ethereum. The website is: https://www.meetup.com/decentralized-camp/
2. Wasn’t it named differently ?
Yes, it was previously called Decentralized Self. The change in name represents how we come together to collaborate and learn.
3. Where is it based ?
Decentralized Camp happens in Stockholm, Sweden.
4. What are the plans for the meetup group going forward?
In the short term, there will be weekend hackathons and regular events with guest speakers. The overarching goal is to accelerate the adoption of blockchain related technologies.
