Project Rundown Interview with Amun

Hey guys! Happy to connect today and learn more about the Amun! Can you tell us more about the founding of Amun and what the problem is that you were addressing?

It’s no secret that most people in the stock market or crypto are in it to make money. It’s very common for people to ask “what stock/coin do I buy, what stock/coin will moon next”.

Amun has been built to provide an easier access point for those wanting to place capital into the crypto space. A commonality across crypto headlines is ‘Volatility this’ ‘Scam that’, so people are already coming into the space with a high level of apprehension. To combat that and help make the transition from Traditional Finance easier, we’re solving the problem of risk tolerance by providing crypto products similar to ETF functionality, which make investing easier and less stressful.

Could you please give us a rundown of the most important things about Amun?

Amun is the bridge between TradFi and Cryptocurrency, a bridge in which most have a difficult time navigating due to the complexity of on/off ramps in crypto, a lack of ease and accessibility, or minimal education on how to get involved. Our main mission is to eliminate and streamline these pain points for our customers by providing an easy-to-use interface, with minimal steps from turning dollars into cryptocurrency and begin earning passive income, whilst being assured of a high level of safety within the product.

We also understand this run across the cryptosphere as a whole, so expansion is also an important focus, as we aim to help the transition be as smooth and painless as possible for as many customers as we can.

So going forth into 2022 and beyond, how will Amun make an impact in the crypto space, or on the world?

We aim to be a simple, safe, automated solution for crypto holding.

Our last answer has most of our ethos and aims but to elaborate on those, Amun will become the de-facto go-to platform in the crypto space for automated crypto-wide investment. The impact will further the onboarding of ‘retail/new/traditional’ money due to providing such an easy, smooth process and that being supported by having a strong, wide array of products.

Many investors say ETFs are the safest way of investing in the stock market, so to shall ‘Amun is the easiest, safest way to invest in crypto assets. This is how Amun will impact the crypto space and thus the wider world.

Now, could you tell us about Amun’s accomplishments so far, and in the history of the project, please tell us what you are most proud of.

We are a young project, but reaching $1mil in assets under management was awesome. Also, I believe we were the first index product to do an IDO, list on Bitmart, and list on DigiFinex.

You’re only as strong as your team and we’ve been hiring at a strong rate to the point where Amun boasts 30+ amount of employees, super proud of our team so far already, and expanding that is exciting.

It’s simple but every time we launch a new product, PECO, DFI, SOLI, that in itself is an accomplishment because of the meticulous attention to detail and planning that goes into each Amun product.

Now, give us a quick rundown of the future of Amun. For example, what new things are you seeking to bring to life and what will it mean for the overall project?

The most exciting thing we have announced is our upcoming L1 and total blockchain indexes. These have never been done before mainly due to challenges with liquidity. Working with some partners and developing some custom contracts we believe we have solved it and will release it sometime in 2022.

These are our main focuses going forward but we are exploring other ideas. Without giving too much alpha right now, we’d encourage you to keep tapping in for a few more launches in the coming months.

Tell us about your team. Who’re the people behind the screens?

At the head of it all, we have Hany Rashwan and Ophelia Snyder, founders of Amun 21Shares. Both were in Forbes 30 under 30.

That level of leadership in itself is a huge asset. As it travels down from those two, we have a team of experienced developers, project managers, content creators, etc.

Which partnerships have Amun engaged so far, and which ones are the most impactful?

We don’t have crazy partnerships at the moment, but we utilize the current infrastructure to grow. Things like QuickSwap liquidity mining, StarLaunch launchpad, mSOL have all helped our tokens

For such a product, Amun partnerships must be impactful and of course, make sense. As it currently stands our partnerships are few and far between but the help we have received so far we’re grateful for, as it’s both taught us a lot and excites us going forward with them.
