When and why did you found your startup?

We started SciMatic in Jan 2020. Being a university faculty member, the basic software required by my students and me was either unavailable in the market or very expensive. I decided to develop all of them for myself. Then cryptocurrencies and decentralization were getting popular, so we decided to develop some applications working with Web3 (decentralized). Then when we started to develop very exciting applications, we made our target peak. We found that our company has to go long and can grow mountains. So, later we decided to use our own blockchain network for our products instead of using Ethereum or other expensive networks.

What are your key and unique features?

Our unique features are our decentralized blockchain-based products and our centralized applications for education. Thesis Manager has yet to compete. It is easier than MS Word, requires no manual formatting, and, unlike LaTeX, does not require coding. We have developed the world's first newspaper based on the blockchain ( with unique features. Thesis Manager serves in 15 languages. SciMatic Hybrid Blockchain process fees are much lower than others like Ethereum, Binance smart chain, etc.

Tell us about the numbers that matter to you.

We are planning to become a global giant in the field of blockchain-based decentralized applications (dapps). Our blockchain is not designed for just selling cryptocurrency. Our products will increase transparency and democracy and reduce cheating, fraud, and similar devaluation.

What are your plans for next year and the next 5 years?

We are based in Aydın, a small town in Turkey in the Aegean region. We plan to grow the number of our team members, heir, a big working place and increase our infrastructure. We plan to shift our company to Istanbul or any other mega city in the next 5 years to serve a large audience. SciMatic must have different departments in the next 5 years, like marketing, development, customer service, etc.
