AMA Recap Crypto Library with Idexo

                                       

On 07th June 2021, Idexo conducted an AMA in the Crypto Library Community. Our guest is Greg Marlin. Lots of questions as usual from the Community about Idexo progress. The Idexo team took part in a very interesting AMA session which included introductions, questions from twitter, and a live AMA session with the Crypto Library community. If you missed the AMA in person, read this recap for a deeper insight into Idexo.

Let’s take a look at the most interesting points of our conversation.

INTRODUCTION
Crypto Library Team : So, before we start the AMA could you please introduce yourself to our community?

Greg Marlin (Idexo) : Yes, I am the Founder of idexo. Before I got into blockchain I have had a background in founding companies. For example I founded a company in SaaS that I grew from 0 to $1M/yr in recurring revenue from customers such as Salesforce.com, UN World Food Program and many large companies that used my software to plan their content marketing. When I entered the blockchain industry I focused on being a lead developer and CTO for different blockchain projects.
FIRST SEGMENT (HOST)
Crypto Library Team : What is Idexo? and how does it work?

Greg Marlin (Idexo) : Idexo values simplicity and fun. We want to empower creative individuals to build great industry-disrupting applications by simplifying complexity in 2 key areas: 
  1. Technical: we wrap the technologies of various blockchains into a simple API that you can use to access key blockchain features in small lines of code, accessible with an API key. This allows projects to focus on building their applications right away. 
  2. Economic: our engine handles all the gas transactions with the underlying blockchains using those native tokens. Our customers only need to buy Compute Credits from us, and we give them predictable purchasing power for those transactions meaning they don’t need to worry about token currency fluctuations and can build reliable business models with those.
If you want to build an application that for example allows users to create NFTs, then you would simply need to build a front-end user interface and connect it to the idexo SDK, using your API key. More information on this can be found within https://app.idexo.io and https://idexo.gitbook.io/docs.

Crypto Library Team : Could you give us some reason why we have to choose Idexo than other projects out there?

Greg Marlin (Idexo) : A key reason to choose Idexo is the ease-of-use (see our docs on getting started) and also the availability of support - try reaching out to us on Telegram at https://t.me/idexo_io and you’ll see.

Crypto Library Team : Could you provide some information about your Roadmap, And what milestones that you have reached so far?

Greg Marlin (Idexo) : We have achieved building out the back-end engine that powers our API and integrations with key blockchains such as Arweave, Avalanche, Binance Smart Chain, Ethereum and Polygon. This has enabled innovations such as creating an NFT on Arweave and BSC with one line of code, as well as the idexobot NFT minter in Telegram. We have also built our SaaS product. If you look at what we did with allowing our users to create an NFT with a bot command inside a Telegram group t.me/idexo_io, we were the first in the world to do that.

On our roadmap, currently we are focused on a few main areas:
  1. TGE - this will take place in June. We expect to be announcing the date for this in the upcoming week. For this we are about to complete the audit of our token contract that we have already launched on a testnet. We have also completed a general staking contract and launched that to testnet and are currently completing the vesting contracts that will be completed this week. Those should be audited soon as well. We will also be integrating Vesting tracking, claiming as well as staking dashboards into our SaaS product.
  2. SaaS product interface for managing your compute credits, as well as features for our community such as validating their Early Adopter NFT and interacting with different NFT features.
  3. Early Adopter NFT, idexobot, and customer-facing idexobot programs.
  4. New integrations and functionality for the idexo-SDK
Crypto Library Team : What are the upcoming plans, and future goals of Idexo?

Greg Marlin (Idexo) : 2 big immediate ones to look for our our Polygon NFT mint happening today on our Telegram group @idexo_io (you can mint a Polygon NFT with a bot command) and one happening on Twitter tomorrow (you can mint an NFT with a tweet). The current and future goals of idexo are to continue to find new ways to empower creative individuals and teams to build the the applications that will positively disrupt every industry and ultimately realize the potential of blockchain and decentralization.
SECOND SEGMENT (TWITTER)
Crypto Library Team : Can you talk about the future plan of $Idexo ? and How can I contribute to the development of IDEXO ?

Greg Marlin (Idexo) : As mentioned, the future plan of idexo is aligned with our vision of making it as easy and simple as possible to build applications that leverage blockchain features. The best way to contribute is to join our group @idexo_io.

Crypto Library Team : As your platform strives for providing a simple and fun experience to creating great products that unlock the full potential of decentralization. How will IDEXO maintain it's scalability and functionality in the market? What priority plan for this year for IDEXO?

Greg Marlin (Idexo) : We are very fortunate that my co-founder Helder is an expert at building scalable and reliable systems, having previously worked as a Senior Reliability Engineer at a tech unicorn and having many years of experience in this. Our technology infrastructure is built with advanced automation and reliability giving us a strong foundation to build new innovations upon without sacrificing scalability and functionality. As mentioned previously, we have several key areas of priority such as TGE, providing UI for experimentation and learning, adding features to SDK, adding functionality and interfaces for Early Adopter NFTs and other community NFTs and building out products such as idexobot.
THIRD SEGMENT (LIVE QUESTIONS) 
Crypto Library Team : What is IDEXO's business model? How does the IDEXO project generate revenue for project development? And how strong is your team?

Greg Marlin (Idexo) : Idexo generates fees from sale of Compute Credits where it makes a margin between cost of Compute Credit and cost of underlying gas, and also from sale of products such as the idexobot programs. We have a strong tech team, with both founders being senior developers and having added 3 other developers already to the team.

Crypto Library Team : Too many projects promise magic but never release any working product or prove any revenue, Within a short/long time of release. Is your project also like this? If not can u tell us, What makes your project different from other projects?

Greg Marlin (Idexo) : As mentioned both founders are senior developers. As such we released our first product very quickly and we have several products in market already. We release new functionality weekly. To learn more see our announcements twice a week on our @idexo_io telegram as well as read our docs at https://idexo.gitbook.io/docs.

Crypto Library Team : Binance smart Chain blockchain is having high transaction speed and cheap gas fees, Are you planning to launch your mainet or switch to other blockchains in the future?

Greg Marlin (Idexo) : We released an integration with BSC very early for both testnet and mainnet. The topic of high transaction speed and cheaper gas fees is leading many developers to look at options such as BSC, Polygon, Avalanche, Solana and others. We have integrations with BSC, Polygon, and Avalanche and are releasing Solana and others soon.

Crypto Library Team : Telling about real world adoption. Most of the user are still not aware about Blockchainchain and Blockchainchain related products. So, how Your project can raise awareness about their project with non-crypto users too?

Greg Marlin (Idexo) : As detailed in our whitepaper https://docsend.com/view/t93c7yg2zg8xdzjs we see the problem a bit differently. The average mass-market user doesn't care about blockchain, they care about what features it offers them. The best person to make this relevant to them is someone who knows about specific problems that can be solved by blockchain features related to an area (e.g. industry) that they know about. We want to make it very easy and simple for someone like that to build the applications that will be relevant to these mass-market users.

Crypto Library Team : Does your project have plans to expand to other blockchain networks besides ethereum in the future? BSC or Polkadot for example.

Greg Marlin (Idexo) : Yes, as mentioned we released BSC very early - in fact our Early Adopter NFTs are on BSC and Arweave. In addition to Arweave, Avalanche, BSC, Ethereum and Polygon, we will soon release Solana, Tezos and others.
