What is Settlemint?
Settlemint is a low-code web3 development platform.
It's a little different to many as the low-code, in-browser focus opens the world of dApp development to the less-technical entrepreneurs who are looking to validate an MVP without bringing on a technical co-founder.
By simplifying the blockchain development process, Settlemint believes they can help far more people launch their dApp. In their documentation, they claim that their low-code development platform speeds development cycles dramatically. They claim that... .
- Deploying blockchain networks and nodes: minutes instead of 3-4 months
- Writing and deploying smart contracts: days instead of 2-4 months
- Integrating with existing applications: weeks instead of 4-18 months
For the less-technical founders, this could help them get first iterations of their product up and running to validate the idea.
What problem does Settlemint solve?
There are a lot of founders out there who have an idea that could help solve real-world problems.
With the decentralization of the web gaining more traction, the potential solutions that are available has grown massively.
The problem is that many of the ideas these entrepreneurs have never grow into anything more than an idea. Some of the best ideas never take form because the founder doesn't have the technical skills to build it.
This is especially true in Web3 where new technology and infrastructure have made it difficult even for technical entrepreneurs to understand how to build.
Settlemint is looking at levelling the playing field.
Their low-code platform that can be run directly from your browser and comes with a lot of smart contract templates to help those without the technical knowledge to ubild from scratch get off the mark.

Does Settlemint have a token?
In an interview with TechCrunch co-founder Matthew Van Nierkek said:
“Now is the period where there’s a lot of real serious work being done. Companies are not here to drive a token price but ask how we can use this technology,”
Which is something we can completely agree with.
Tokens without offering a real solution carry no tangible value.
