4. Crypto Africa: What is the biggest challenge, you faced putting up such a great project in the African market which is still young and growing?
KODEPAY: There’s a lot of challenges, like explaining what’s blockchain is about, and ICO and it’s all about lack of exchanges for example in africa to list our token, and people rare that know about blockchain and blockchains and understand how it works.
5. Did you meet media or investors that don’t understand anything about cryptocurrencies? If yes, share one or two experience(s).
KODEPAY : Yes ! but mainstream media, I did interviews with Bloomberg and TechCrunch which are qualified news outlets and know blockchain and ethereum blockchain, but talking to two newspapers here about our project without explaining what’s blockchain and what’s bitcoin, and what’s open ledger, so I explained all this, next day we cancelled the interview they wanted to do with me because they forgot what’s blockchain is, that’s funny anecdote
Investors, old school investors till now it’s fine, they believe and follow the trend
6. Crypto Africa: Do you have any ideal cryptocurrencies that you intend to be like or your idea is fresh?
KODEPAY: I don’t know anybody has done what we do exactly in every aspect, but I like recently Bankera, NEO and OmiseGo in addition to ZCash and TenX
#Crypto Africa: What are some key partners that you are working with?
KODEPAY: Mostly blockchain start ups like EthLend.io and Descrow.org , some banks in Kenya and financial start-ups and companies but sorry I can’t give names until ICO and press release and joint announcement.
7. Crypto Africa: Do you have any community that you will use to promote your cryptocurrency?
KODEPAY: I think success of any crypto currency is the community just how it’s done in linux community, so we focus a lot on our community mainly African community with social media pages, groups and forums, in addition to university and club events to give KDX vibe of community, african community.
8. Crypto Africa: How will you make your cryptocyrrecny be like bitcoin?
KODEPAY: No, absolutely we don’t want to be bitcoin, as we use Ethereum blockchain, we just want to be fresh and useful african crypto currency & digital asset, we don’t look to compete with bitcoin or pretend to kill bitcoin we’re totally different!
9. Crypto Africa: : How do you intend to work in collaboration with the thousands of digital start ups that had evolve in Africa since 2013?
KODEPAY: We’re in contact with a lot of them, collaboration is Fintech and payments, so they’ll be able to sell and do e commerce or whatever that require payments abroad, our virtual bank will solve problem of Foreign currency & exchange and other things;
10. Crypto Africa: How do you think you can work with Crypto Africa?
Given we are in the crypto Industry, do you consider us as a competitor or a partner? Why?
KODEPAY: Founder of Crypto Africa is my friend, and I like Crypto africa platform especially the exchange, so we’ll work together to list KDX on Crypto africa exchange. And about other competetors, no we don’t see direct competition, maybe except western union, and BitPesa *smile*. But partners in africa will be exchanges and other blockchain start ups that will need to use our APIs.
11 –What else do you want to tell the Africa and the world at large?
KODEPAY: I just want to tell them especially media, business people in africa and abroad,
“The Party is about to start, don’t be late”
