Wolfonaire Chatbox : AMA With Cere Network (1st February, 2022)

Hello! Wolfonaire Family & Crypto Enthusiasts

We recently hosted an AMA With Cere Network 1st February, 2022 at 02.00 PM UTC. This session was phenomenal. If you have missed then here is the precious AMA transcript, for those who missed the live session this will enlighten you for sure…

Guest Speaker :

Mr. Martijn Broersma| CMO, Cere Network

(Note: This is the transcription of the event. Please note that the transcript was edited for comprehensibility and coherency, while the content was not changed.)

INTRODUCTION

Martijn : Fred previously co-founded 50cubes, a Tencent-backed gaming platform company that served millions of concurrent users from first to third party games. Fred also led the media initiative at Bebo, an early social network that was acquired by AOL for $1B.

Ian (CTO) and Fred have been working together since 2008 at Bebo, he then led the search & discovery team at Twitch/Amazon for years. Kenzi and Fred have been working closely together for 5 years. Fred knows our head of engineering, Prasanna for 25+ years since he was running a Sequoia-backed enterprise startup with his brother.

I’m the CMO of Cere Network. I’ve been with the team for the past 18 months. Before that I was the COO of LTO network, a Dutch blockchain project, with whom I went through the whole cycle of token minting, listing, adoption, and eventual Binance listing, which has been a great experience, and eventually got me introduced to Cere

All in all we have a very balanced and experienced team of 65 people from all over the world!Fred previously co-founded 50cubes, a Tencent-backed gaming platform company that served millions of concurrent users from first to third party games.

Wolf : Really Good To Hear That ❤️, For our members who are not already familiar with the project, can you give us a very high-level overview of what #CERE Network is and what competitive edge it brings to the Crypto Universe?

Martijn : Sure! Cere Network’s key innovation is the Decentralized Data Cloud (DDC). The DDC is the world’s first blockchain-based storage solution that is optimized to capture interactions between users, (NFT) assets, and applications which are individually signed and encrypted, along with potential value transfers, to be stored in a tamper-proof and time-capsuled data scheme. (For comparisons with for instance Arweave and Filecoin, see: www.cere.network/freeport)

The DDC and Cere Freeport also power the DaVinci NFT Experience Platform that is currently soft launching and will be exclusively available in February. We have a great list of Creators lined up who will provide fans with exclusive NFT experiences, only accessible to NFT ticket holders. During this exhibit, you can bid on auction NFTs and purchase limited-edition NFTs. It’s applicable to all forms of visual art, music, sports, films, etc.

The big difference here is that DDC is powering the individual streaming and ownership of content, as well it’s going where no NFT platforms have gone before in terms of value and experience to the NFT holders, further it will be as a next-generation marketplace with a bunch of tools such as ERC1155 smart contract extensions that can support artist royalty policies and guarantees, automate proceeds, and connect with Cere DDC and Cere Freeport to power trustless asset transfers.

Wolf : No doubt Cere is Amazing …I still remember when my team shared about this gem & I was surprise that how undervalued this is lmao

Let’s talk more about cere
How do holders of the #CERE Tokens benefit in the ecosystem? What power within your model do individuals hold? Why is it so attractive and what are the basic requirements to participate?

Martijn : The CERE token plays a critical role in incentivizing and regulating the flow of decentralized data, as well as the overall incentive structure of the Cere Network.

CERE token will serve as a key catalyst for the growth of the Cere ecosystem in many ways.

1) Staking and Governance;

2) Powering the Cere DDC smart contracts, such that an application stakes it to get cloud services from DDC nodes with SLAs in the smart contracts; while DDC node operators receive it for fulfilling these SLA’s.

3) Consumers can also use it directly with soon-to-be-launched Cere wallet (and 3rd party ones) to access their data/content directly from DDC.

A great example use case is that Cere Freeport uses it to allow any application to store/transfer NFT backed assets on Cere DDC, e.g. right now the moment that a user buys an NFT on Davinci, its smart contract on Polygon not only transfers the NFT to the user, but also stakes CERE token on Cere mainnet to re-encrypt and transfer the NFT asset (a video, an image, etc.) to the public key of the new owner in one atomic transaction. Really powerful stuff!

Wolf : Interesting ❤️… Have you met all your goals in the roadmap till now? And were there any difficulties that you didn’t expect and were not prepared for?

Martijn : Pretty much! The only delay we run into was the DaVinci release, but thats for the better, given that we are using this time to extensively user test our app

Wolf : Amazing Any plan for updated roadmap

Martijn : Yes, but not on short notice. Probably in Q2 or Q3

Wolf : Cool…Can you please give us a short tutorial on how even a nontech guy can easily use and enjoy your platform?

Martijn : The DDC is already live, after thorough testing by the Cere Extended Developer Program. You can try the ddc here: ddc.cere.network

Regarding the DaVinci NFT Experience Platform, people will be able to purchase NFTs and their experiences directly from through their preferred social media channels without the hassle of needing crypto in order to make an NFT purchase, this is currently revolutionary, and this feature makes it that NFTs will become accessible and manageable for everyone.

Regarding Freeport, you can submit your interest as beta-user to:

- Configure NFT sales, auctions, royalties & fiat gateways.
- Associate NFTs with assets on Cere DDC
- Deliver in-game/app experiences via Cere SDK
- Facilitating verified asset ownership & secure delivery of (in-game/app) assets

Lets go for the Twitter Questions

Q1. I Understand That, CERENetwork is a polkadot inspired, Next gen distributed network that consists of several modular inter connected layer; you mentioned Cere layer-1 core, Cere Layer-2, and the distributed ecosystem.Can you elaborate more on these modular inter connected layers?

Ans. Cere’s scalability is required for the magnitude of the enterprise/DaVinci operations that will be running on our network. Cere’s layer-1 will eventually become a Polkadot Parachain, allowing it to fully leverage Polkadots scalability, interoperability, and ecosystem.

Our scalable layer-2 enterprise private networks are substrate-based, and therefore compatible with any other Polkadot/Substrate based chain. We won a Web3 grant for this innovation, which is currently already operational! https://cere-network.medium.com/cere-network-awarded-grant-to-develop-turn-key-private-blockchain-network-c0c45c8d968c

Q2. At the moment, all tokens go down in price even with great partnerships, hype, marketing, and working products, etc. So, what the challenges do you have and the plan to make your project strong popular? Are you see it as an opportunity while the current market decline?

Ans. We’re here for the long run and trust the vision we drive, long-term or short-term, Cere Network will offer unique products that will be recognized by the market when the moment is there. We have been growing and innovating so fast.. While it’s truly exciting, we are also going through some growing pains. A lot of team optimization and onboarding has been going on, and it will show off in the near future!

Q3. Many projects look great only on their whitepaper & Roadmap but facing a lot of difficulties when trying to implement the project mission and end with failed. How does Cerenetwork overcome every obstacle in its project development?

Ans. We’re lucky enough to have a very large and experienced team already, in which the 60 people Cere Team is constantly building, working, and going all out time to realize the project’s goals. Furthermore, we make use of effective working methods implemented by one of our Strategy Advisors, Rajani Ramanathan, who advised us on various methods that she established during her time at Salesforce as COO.

Q4. What methods is the #cerenetwork team designing and/or adopting to raise the value of the token or does the mechanism they already have already enhance the value of the token if we make a profit just by retaining #cerenetwork token in our wallet?

Ans. We have a number of token lock-drop intitiatives coming up for Cere token HODLers. More information on this very soon!
