Conference Call with Evan Kereiakes, Core Researcher at Terra Money to talk about Terra and its stablecoin vision
Our founder Joyce Yang recently spoke with Laura Shin as a guest on her Unconfirmed podcast about the crypto community in Korea, and she mentioned that one of the interesting companies based there is Terra, a stablecoin that is looking to grow its adoption in Asia through its e-commerce payment gateway.
In this conference call with core researcher Evan Kereiakes at Terra, we’ll learn about how Terra works, its recent partnership with the Mongolia government, and its plans to integrate with checkout processes of 15 e-commerce platforms across Asia collectively processing 25 billion USD in volume and 45 million monthly active users.
Terra is a price-stable cryptocurrency aiming to empower the next-generation payment network on the blockchain. 6 months ago, the Korea-based team announced that they’ve raised $32mn from global exchanges including Binance Labs, OKEx, Huobi Capital, FBG and Dunamu — the firm behind Korea’s Upbit , along with Polychain, FBG and others. The project is headed by Daniel Shin, founder and president of TicketMonster — the $1.7 billion Korean e-commerce firm that has been formerly owned by both Living Social and Groupon.

According to co-founder Do Kwon in his Medium post Scaling Seigniorage, Terra’s initial growth will be bootstrapped by an e-commerce payment gateway, TerraX, that is slated to be integrated into checkout processes of 15 e-commerce platforms across Asia collectively processing 25 billion USD in volume and 40 million monthly active users.
Evan Kereiakes worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York for over 7 years. He was most recently the Head Japanese Portfolio Manager and Trading Operations Manager for the foreign reserves portfolio.
