TEAMTALKS #10: KEPL — THE WORLDS FIRST FULLY OPEN DATA INFRASTRUCTURE FOCUSED BLOCKCHAIN
TEAMTALKS PROVIDES A SOAP BOX FOR THE CRYPTO TEAMS THROUGH RAW UNEDITED Q&A — THIS TIME I MET WITH CORE DEVELOPER LAURENT D. FROM KEPL
Who are you?
My name is Laurent D., I’m one of the core developers of the KEPL project. I’ve worked as software engineer specializing in data infrastructures in London and New York. I took an interest in the blockchain last year and, along with a few colleagues, we saw an opportunity to leverage it in our work. That’s how KEPL got started.
What are KEPL’s key features?
KEPL is a data infrastructure blockchain. Building large, scalable, and secure data infrastructures is a complex and very costly problem. We think the blockchain in a natural fit for it and the next logical innovation in that space.
Our first product is the KEPL Keyspace, a built-in data virtualization layer that connects the KEPL blockchain to third-party storage solutions, APIs, and services. Our mission is to make the KEPL Keyspace a core component of next-generation data-infrastructure pipelines.
Why does the world need KEPL?
KEPL solves a real problem.
The market for data infrastructures is worth hundreds of billions of dollar and leveraging the blockchain to improve its efficiency by allowing developers to save time and money is a no-brainer.
This is what we’re all about.
Who are KEPL’s competitors?
There are a few developments being made in our space, most of which are happening privately at the enterprise level. But we think KEPL will be the first fully open data infrastructure focused blockchain.
What role does the KEPL token have, and how can investors be sure that it holds any value?
The KEPL token serves as a way to pay for all operations performed on the KEPL Keyspace. Its value will be ensured by the popularity of the Keyspace. As more and more content and apps are developed on the Keyspace, the more valuable the coin will be. We think there is tremendous potential in investing in the KEPL Keyspace economy.
To kick it off, we are going to be building apps of the our own blockchain. We already are working on a distributed storage solution built on the KEPL Keyspace. We will also try to make it very easy for anyone to experiment with the KEPL Keyspace, starting with a web portal. I can’t reveal much right now, but it’ll be awesome.
What partnerships do you have and what partnerships are you looking to secure?
The core team has a wide network of developers and enterprise relations. Once we release our Keyspace, we will work hard towards building a sustained ecosystem of developers. We already have a healthy core mining community which we like to listen to. And right now, they would like us to add more exchanges, so we’re looking to partner up with additional ones.
Who and how many are in the core team right now?
We are a team of three core engineers. Each of us specializes in different areas, but we’re looking to expand the team in the upcoming months.
How will the average person experience or use KEPL?
The average person will be interacting with data and applications hosted on our blockchain. We think that one of the direct benefits to the end user is a more secure digital experience, since the data and apps developed in our keyspace will have been vetted by the network.
How will government bodies and large corporations benefit from KEPL?
Governments and corporations will save lots of money.
Leveraging the blockchain for data means less servers, less developers, less maintenance, less complexity.
What is the next big thing for KEPL?
The next milestone is releasing our first core product the, KEPL Keyspace, and seeing it develop into a platform. We expect to deliver on that starting Q4 of this year.
Where do you see KEPL in 10 years?
We have many ideas for KEPL, there’s lots to do in the infrastructure world and we hope to see our platform become as influential as the biggest data technologies out there.
We hope to see governments, businesses, universities, and many more players use and develop our blockchain.
In our space, sky is the limit.
We just need to roll our sleeves and work hard at it.
I’m super excited.
THANKS TO LAURENT D. & KEPL FOR WANTING TO PARTICIPATE & PROVIDING SUCH INFORMATIVE & TO-THE-POINT ANSWERS! GOOD LUCK WITH THE PROJECT — I, FOR ONE, WILL DEFINITELY BE FOLLOWING CLOSELY!
MUCH OBLIGED, FLASHY GORDY
