EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH CHRIS, MARKETING GURU OF PROJECT GenesisX:
Caribro interviewed Chris (Chockblain) to learn more about his background and the project.
How did you get involved with cryptocurrency?
Through word of mouth from friends and family. The concept was foreign to me at the time but I had a keen interest in investing so was willing to give it a shot. I had a friend set me up with my first BTC wallet and he deposited my first $100 worth in November 2017 and I watched it grow over the coming weeks so I started depositing my own BTC into the wallet and started trading during the bull run.
How did you get involved with the GenesisX project?
After being an active community member in GenesisX and having a keen motivation to help others in the community by answering some questions that they had showed GenesisX that I was willing to work for the project. Tom needed help with marketing and asked if I was interested in joining the team. From that point on I was able to do marketing and support for the project and it slowly become more of a senior role in the project through continuing to provide the community and team with direction and information they needed to get their questions answered.
Have you ever had a bad experience in crypto that made you realize the importance of safety and transparency in a cryptocurrency project?
I haven’t had any personal experience with that kind of cryptocurrency issues. Starting out in cryptocurrency the way I did I was quite fortunate to not fall victim to any hacks but that’s not to say they don’t exist. Being a part of a solution to a very real problem for many drives me to help create a safe, functional system that protects it’s users. Cloud storage is heavily used and it’s biggest downfall is it security so far which is where we chime in.
Do you think privacy will be important going forward?
“I see privacy as a way to prevent signaling concerns from encompassing all of our activity, and creating spheres where we are free to optimize for our own happiness and just our own happiness, and not what other people think about us.” — Vitalik Buterin
Privacy features definitely have their place in the world of economics and in business whereby it should be up to the discretion of the person to share as much information about themselves as they are happy to release. With that transparency is still possible even with privacy by sharing all information that is needed to execute a sale on our SPS Platform for example. That way the person buying can make an informed decision about whether they feel safe enough to make that trade with the information the seller has provided. So i believe it is as important to have privacy as it is to create more flexibility in others providing a product on our platform.
What updates are coming up with your project in the next couple of months?
Referring to our roadmap and current goals our main focus at this point is the airdrop for $BGX for $XGS holders. Being critical on our path to creating the ecosystem we like getting it off the ground and rewarding those who have invested in XGS in the long-term which creates a good relationship between us and our investors. With the SPS V1.0 due in Q1 next year it will be good to see our product being used to its full capabilities. Partnerships are also weighing in with regards to both XGS and BGX to form strong alliances and good services for each project to use is a main aim of ours.
My final question is what is it about your project that makes you the most excited?
The one thing that gets me most excited about GenesisX is it’s honesty and transparency. In the bear market it is not always easy to keep investors happy however our communication about who we are and what we are doing is the cornerstone of how I view cryptocurrencies should move forward. We have a product already out in beta release at the moment and have real use cases for it. The cloud storage market alone is huge. Looking forward to getting out there with a largely reliable and functionally safe platform that companies and individuals can rely on.
