Pandora with Pushkar Vohra
Pandora envisions the transaction of real-world assets on the trustless platform in a borderless economy. Their scalable, interoperable, and high throughput infrastructure allows asset owners to convert their real-world illiquid assets to a liquid state.
Patrice: Hi @pushkarrvohra 👋🏼 WELCOME TO THE ROOM!! How are you?
Pushkar: Hi @cryptopatsu ! Nice to be here. thanks for inviting. I am good.
Patrice: We’re thrilled to have you! 🙂
Pushkar: Pleasure is all mine.
Patrice: Please introduce yourself, your background and how you got into the crypto space 🙂
Pushkar: Hi everyone, Pushkar Vohra here. I am the CEO and Founder of Pandora Finance. In the past, I have worked vastly on DeFi projects with various organisations like EthLend, BlocksLab, zTips etc.
Patrice: Nice! may I know the first coin you ever bought?
Pushkar: I got into the crypto space in 2017 and co founded Blockslab. Later, I worked with EthLend (now AAVE), which gave me wide exposure to the crypto industry. I helped many different defi projects to get their product launch through Blockslab. I has to be Bitcoin, right.
It is 😃
Patrice: Hahaha has to be everyone’s. Very in-depth defi background there! Can you tell us what Pandora is and what it aims to contribute in the ecosystem?
Pushkar: Ok. There are more than 300 trillion dollars of illiquid assets. Including digital art work NFTs.
Our goal is to provide the bridge for them to get on-chain and make it liquid via DeFi. In short, we at Pandora, our goal is to bring liquidity in the illiquid market through Open Finance.
Technically, Pandora is a middle-layer solution for the NFT market, which sits on top of the base layer. And different dapps can be built by using this middle layer solution. Yeah
Patrice: Why did you name it Pandora btw before I get to my other questions 😃
Pushkar: Good one. We named it ,Pandora because this product is unique and revolutionary in the DeFi Space. What we are doing in the NFT ecosystem is also unique, i.e bringing liquidity in the NFT ecosystem, which will give the best price of any assets.
And just like Pandora’s box, it will amaze all of us I am sure.
Patrice: I can see it now 😉 the product is pretty unique. are you a cross-chain solution? and what chains do you support right now?
Pushkar: Yes, our solution is the cross-chain. We are going to release our product on BSC as of now but in longer term we will be on Polkadot via parachain as well.
