Hi, on behalf of BerChain, we are glad to have you onboard! What is the work you bring forward with Keyko?
Keyko is a Web3.0 powerhouse with a passion for openness and change. We are focused on promoting the growth of Digital Ecosystems by offering unparalleled expertise in the creation and application of large scale data sharing technologies, and we are leaders in leveraging decentralised open source platforms.
We solve the most complex problems with the most innovative and high-quality solutions, and we build the layer technology for it.
Why did you join BerChain?
We joined BerChain to connect to the network of partners members, to remain up to date to the latest events in Berlin. Since a big part of our team is based in Berlin, it is also a great growth network opportunity.
In your opinion, what are the biggest obstacles to widespread mainstream adoption of blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) and what can be done to overcome these obstacles?
The biggest obstacle is education, followed by user experience. Education is a time issue, the longer around, the more people will be educated, therefore more education will take place with the user stuff, it is a function of time, but there are dif approaches that are now manifesting that will make user experience better.
Where do you see the Blockchain industry in 10 years?
I wouldn’t consider or call Blockchain an industry. I see Web3.0 as an industry, using the mentioned terminology, we see both adoption and more Web3.0 solutions. Mass market adoption of Web.3 in 10 years or at least the signs of mass adoption of Web.3 and lots of companies adopting the process.
What are your latest projects in the space as Keyko?
Keyko as a service organisation is a long-term partner of CELO, and has contributed to the development of other core open source platforms. Keyko has its own Venture track where it spun out 4 ventures in the last year: Nevermined, Humanity Cash, Chikai, DeFi Marketplace. We also run an R&D department that has launched the first NFT Festival in Europe (Rare Effect) and contributed to the NFT space through communities focused on art and independent music producers.
What do you find exciting about the Berlin Blockchain Ecosystem?
The nicest part is the level of acceptance that Berlin has for this type of technology, it is widely accepted within the tech community and that helps moving things forward. Also the fact that we are not in square 1 anymore, most people already wrap the fundamentals so we can move forward quite fast.
