Content of interviews
1.Please tell us your current job and what makes you choose this job?

2.And also, please introduce your current venture.
Just now I’m advising more than 60 projects, most of them are reached soft cap, other hard cap. All of them are satisfied.
3.When did you get to know blockchain and when were you engaged in blockchain?
I’m working on marketing world from a lot of time, more than 20 years and I knew more than 5 years ago blockchain and crypto world.
4.How did it attract your attention to blockchain in your opinion?
The technology and the features it offers was the main attraction. Its application and advantages as it applies to the various industries on the global market. The decentralization feature was the champion of it all as I am a strong believer in the decentralization of systems.
5.We learned that you are a famous blockchain expert and as an expert, can you share your opinions about how to identify whether an ICO project is worth investing or not?
The different blockchain based companies in most cases have great ideas that they were hoping to implement. But it still always comes down to the timing of the project and the relevance of that particular project. Other worthy features that I would consider are the future development and the business model which would be contained in the white paper, the qualification and experience of the team setup, the level of transparency, the terms and conditions which apply and most importantly the scalability.
6.You had facilitated the creation of many tech startups. How do you usually persuade them to keep calm when they make great fortunate?
I usually try to broaden the scale at which they view the project with which they are working on and point out that there is more to be done. I am oriented about the development and growth of the blockchain to be able to be useful in many areas of the different industry in an economy. So I am usually quick to point out the next project that should be embarked on and persuade the startups to remain calm and focused on the task.
7.In your opinions, which kind of CEO is more likely to be successful? Is it technology-orientated or marketing-orientated?
This is a tricky question, but I would be leaning towards the marketing oriented CEO. The technology-oriented CEO may create a great piece of tech that has market value but will not know how to market the product properly. Meanwhile, a Marketing oriented CEO with a medium tech could really do exploits with its marketing tactics.
8.Can you tell us what kind of assistance does blockchain field needs most? What is the direction of future development?
The blockchain field still needs more cutting-edge technology for the scalability of the platform. The future use of the blockchain is already manifesting right now. There are different sectors and industries that the blockchain platform has found its usefulness. Example of such industries are the real estates, financial solutions, hedge funds, and investment, etc. these industries would, however, need the blockchain to develop in term of its smart contract system and the security level that is being offered on the blockchain.
9.How to gain its original users for startups and how to promote themselves? How to attract the attention of users?
There are always people looking for the next big idea. Most of the ideas are usually great ideas while some are not that great. So to gain users, the startups have to learn creative ways of marketing their ideas, use creative marketing strategies and growth hacking tactics where applicable. I would also strongly advise the seasoned advice from professionals.
10.Is STO the future of cryptocurrency? How will it affect the market?
The Security token offering seems to be the trend recently in the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain. Last year, this same trend was recorded for the Initial Coin Offering. These externally derived value token are great investment opportunities. This particular trend is certain to shift the direction to which the cryptocurrency market was headed previously to a whole different direction. With the ICOs not gaining the same momentum it had last year, it is obvious that the investors and the general market have turned its eyes to STO.
11.The battle between Craig Wright and Bitmain resulting the slumped. May I have your opinion about it? The price of bitcoin tumbled only because of a thought of Craig Wright, in your opinion, if it means that the market of cryptocurrency is still immature?
The hard-fork of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency on November 15th that caused the split could have gone in a more consensual way. The way the split occurred was the main cause of the panic sales of the bitcoin currency which led to the sudden decline in the price. The tumble of the price does not really mean the market of cryptocurrency is still immature; it means that the market understands the volatility of the cryptocurrency market.
12.May I have your opinions about the dispute block size of bitcoin and the current situation of the development of bitcoin? If the price of bitcoin can rise again?
The block size of the bitcoin cryptocurrency could affect the time with which transactions are completed. But the block size bar is being considered to be raised in anticipation of more sophisticated CPU power, the bandwidth of operation and the storage of data it can accommodate.
On whether the price of bitcoin will rise again, I would say a big yes. This is due to the fact that the Bitcoin has weathered the test of time to be still relevant now, it is also the most famous cryptocurrency in the market right now. The extensive use of the bitcoin will be the main determining factor of the trend it will send in the periods to come.
13.In Capital in the Twenty-First Century, Thomas Piketty writes that the gap between the poor and the rich is broadening and he calls for an immediate action to solve it. But in crypto world, some big player who has a huge amount of cryptocurrency is quite common. Do you think it is necessary to solve it? If necessary, how to stop price manipulation of big players?
The crypto world has offered the whole community the chance at various forms of investment opportunity. That is one of the ways the crypto world is offering to breach these extensive gaps between the richer players and the ‘not so rich’ players.
The necessity to breach this gap is to enable the main aim of cryptocurrency to stand still. That is the decentralization from a central administrator. If the larger volume of the cryptocurrency is in the hands of a few big players, the functionality and the control of the market will essentially be up to them.
The blockchain platform has been developed so well to repel any form of price manipulation. The continuous development of the blockchain to continue to repel various methods of manipulation must be developed continually.
14.Can you tell us the development situation of blockchain in Italy? How long for practical dApps to be developed?
The blockchain is being developed all over the world. Most noticeable is the amount of development in Italy. Sometimes in September, Italy was proposing to enter into a European blockchain partnership.
The decentralized application is the application which will be run by many users on the application to operate a trustless set of instructions. The realization of dApps is almost here, and it already promises a whole lot of feature and advantages.
15.It is reported that Italy will leave EU. If Italy leaves EU, how will it affect blockchain industry in Italy? Will Italy learn from Malta, building a blockchain-friendly Italy?
Italy has had its area of conflict with the European Union. The blockchain industry hopes to be able to function on a global level. In the event that they leave the European Union, the blockchain industry will suffer some setbacks in term of trade arrangements and agreements with the European Union, but that could be properly taken care of by building and developing a blockchain friendly Italy just like Malta.
