AMA Session with Koh Onozawa from Bit2Me

Guest : Koh Onozawa, Partner & CIO at Bit2Me

Host: Iris

Introduction:

Iris: Happy Thanksgiving MEXC fam!

Today, we’re honored to have Koh Onozawa, Partner & CIO at Bit2Me, in our community to give us a more intuitive introduction to their unique project.

Koh, would you like to say hello and introduce yourself?

I’m Koh Onozawa, a partner and Chief Investments Officer at Bit2me — spain’s largest crypto exchange since 2014

We’re very excited to be here 🙌 hello from Spain everyone!

Questions about the project:

Iris: You just mentioned that Bit2Me is Spain’s largest crypto exchange. Would you please tell us more about it in detail?

Koh: Our mission is to enable everybody to Discover, Access, and Operate with crypto- since 2014.

We have 2 main pillars: Education and Adoption.

Our Education division boasts of being virtually the largest crypto academy (articles, academy-format courses with certificates, audio/visual format etc.) in the Spanish speaking world.

On top of this, we have 20 different crypto adoption tools and services wherein the B2M token is at the center of everything we do, including our academy.

The team of Bit2Me has more than 100 people of 15 nationalities, more than 1B euros operated annually, 20 different solutions, more than 300 thousand customers in Bit2Me Wallet, more than 2 million students in Bit2Me Academy, partners with 4 banks, customers from more than 100 countries, annual growth of more than 1000%.

In September this year, we did an ICO on the Bit2me Launchpad and successfully raised 20M€ in 144 seconds purely from our community and user base. We’re excited to have MEXC as our 2nd CEX listing!

Iris: What triggers you to launch Bit2Me? What are some of the real-world problems/ pain points that Bit2Me aims to solve?

Koh: Back in 2014, most of the crypto educational content (not much) were predominantly in English or translated from English. To really help speed up mainstream adoption, we decided to create an academy in Spain for Spanish users here and Latin America. and on top of this, launch our exchange so newbie can have a trusted venue to buy, sell, swap, and user crypto

We believe that providing our users with an accessible and in-depth knowledge of the cryptocurrency space is crucial. Our online Academy is a learning platform that gathers knowledge from verified bibliography and trusted industry mentors where our team produces videos, articles, and step-by-step guidance. In addition, our students receive an official certificate after completing our courses along with personalized follow-up upon completion.

Bit2Me differences itself from other digital suite competitors by focusing on our

niche demographic wherein we provide customer care, telephone support, and customer

success account managers for small accounts in Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian.

Iris: What is the role of $B2M in Bit2Me? Would you tell us more about its tokenomics?

Koh: B2M is a utility token with over 50K holders right now after launching on November 1, 2021. It’s an ecosystem token that will allow access to special perks and benefits within our product suite as well as products and services offered by our current and future partners. Future campaigns such as airdrops, Bit2me Academy courses, cashbacks etc would give priority to top holders.

The token is our way to come closer to our community by allowing: knowledge regarding coins to be listed, vote on features, etc.

B2M is currently on the Ethereum blockchain, but we’re workingo on bridging to on BSC and Polygon. We have a very close relationship with Polygon.

This is our start into the DeFi ecosystem, with minimum yield in liquidity pools and the full DeFi potential.

Iris: Cool! looking forward to use it from on BSC and Polygon 🔥

Iris: Are there any exciting news or updates with regards to Bit2Me that you would like to share with the users?

Koh: Yes! Dean Thomas, Global Head of Institutional Capital at Polygon has joined our team as senior advisor https://mobile.twitter.com/bit2me/status/1454131172032712716 Alongside some true heavy hitters in the industry like:

- Zeeshan Feroz, ex-CEO of Coinbase UK & EU

- Raul Oliveira, ex-Manager or Iberia at Kraken

- Baldomera Falcones, ex-Chairman of Mastercard International

We are building a very solid team and forging partnerships very actively. We will continue to expand our market share in Spain and Portugal, and make our way to Latin America very soon…and even into the Metverse :)

You can find out more about the team and our roadmap for 2022 here: https://bit2me.com/token

Iris: If you were to summarize your project in ONE word, what would it be? Why?

Koh: is DAO a word? :P

I’d say: Community

Why? We’ve been around for since the early years trying to get the word out about crypto and blockchain. It was not the easiest task back then. But our true believers stayed, and new ones came in. Crypto became trendy too, then the ICO boom in 2018 where we had to survive the crypto winter.

Fast forward to 2020, we decided to launch B2M token 100% with our community on our launchpad, on our wallet and exchange. And they’ve demonstrated thier size and power after a 20M€ raise in 144 seconds.

We are nothing without our community, through all the good and the bad.

Now we are excited to share this with the MEXC community only 25 days after launching our token.

This is going to be a very excited journey and I invite everyone here to be a part of this ship!
