AMA Recap: StrongNode x The Crypto Blade

Host: Hello Brandon Sivret welcome to The Crypto Blade community

Brandon Sivret: Hello, thank you for having me here today. Daniel is on a plane right now, so I’m helping out today.

Host: Let’s start the AMA session, Are you ready?

Brandon Sivret: Ready!

First Segment: Introduction:

Host: 1: Could you tell us something about your company & ecosystem?

Also, tell us about the team behind the StrongNode project.

Brandon Sivret: Hello, CryptoBlade community. My name is Brandon Sivret and I am the VP of Operations of StrongNode.io, speaking on behalf of our CEO Daniel Saito. StrongNode.io is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service technology company and innovation lab. We harness the power of latent and idle compute resources like the CPU / GPU cycles, network bandwidth, and storage of the everyday common digital devices. In return, you get paid in StrongNode $SNE tokens when you lend your excess compute resources to the network.

At StrongNode, we are pioneering a new paradigm in digital connectivity through our products and our incubated projects under our innovation lab. We wanted to foster a symbiotic relationship with our incubated projects like Original Gamer Life, our social impact gaming ecosystem which will help scale out the StrongNode ecosystem.

The core team of StrongNode is made up of stellar executives led by our CEO and Co-founder Daniel Saito. Daniel has assembled some of the greatest minds in the crypto space and brought onboard some true professionals that are driving his vision forward like our CTO Colin Charles, CPO Gil Bashan, CMO Carmen Campo, and more. The StrongNode core team consists of 14 (+16 back office) extremely passionate and dedicated people with 20+ years of diverse experience with some of the biggest names in various industries, establishing foundational technologies, and closing $1B+ exits

Host: 2: What is the main purpose of StrongNode?

Brandon Sivret: At StrongNode, we are on a mission to power companies globally through the next generation of edge networking by uniquely harvesting a trifecta of idle compute resources and leveraging new blockchain technologies. We wanted to address the last mile, which is the EDGE, and build a global edge network through access and monetization of idle resources.

We are working towards our goal of making “Computing with a Purpose” a reality as we are working to utilize the latent compute resources and use it for a batch processing cluster using the map/reduce method of sorting jobs and other purposes. We like the concept of democratizing your computer, commoditizing your computer resources. We wanted to create solutions for real-world problems and we plan on bringing onboard new open-source tech adapted with tokenomics. As our CEO Daniel Saito has said, we create solutions that cater to life as we know it, like how we harness untapped compute resources — decentralized, edge-based, and open source.

Host: 3: Can you please tell us more about StrongNode Edge Network and its advantages?

Host: 4: Can you share more details about the $SNE Token-omics, and what are the utilities of $SNE?

Brandon Sivret: We extend the relevance of blockchain and expand the crypto market through the utility and major use cases of our $SNE token. In a nutshell, our $SNE token can be used on our platform for our Enterprise or Retail and End User services (Node Enterprise), but it also forms the backbone of our wider ecosystem’s economy, tying all of them together, while users on these other products run StrongNode apps (Node Seeders) which also includes our innovation lab projects (Node Innovators) focused on gaming, social impact, entertainment, lifestyle platforms building on the StrongNode Edge technology.

Through each additional project we also have access to that platform’s economy, so for Original Gamer Life, for example, you’ll be able to earn and spend $SNE and $OGL. The StrongNode tech will run underneath the OGLife application, giving you more ways to earn on the platform. Expand this to our other projects being announced soon and you’ll see how the whole ecosystem works.

Host: 5: What are the main milestones on your road map, both in terms of what you’ve already accomplished and what we might expect in the future? Any partnerships or short/long-term technological achievements you’d like to discuss or draw attention to?

Brandon Sivret: The fact that we were able to successfully launch our $SNE IDO and token sale to the public is a major milestone for StrongNode. $SNE is listed on CoinGecko and CoinMarketCap and our $SNE liquidity farm on quickswap is now live. We are working on having our CEX and DEX listings in the coming weeks. The whole team is busy working behind the scenes in ensuring that we are geared up as we take our project to the next level.

Daniel previously shared, “We can anticipate the app preview at the end of the year and we plan to enable all the application-centric with crypto staking (for uptime) to be available around Q1 2022.” Our immediate releases scheduled are StrongNode ID, single staking, and the dashboard it will live in. We will soon publish our whitepaper and an updated roadmap on our website covering the next phase for our StrongNode project from 2022 and beyond. Original Gamer Life is coming up and I am heading the project. We have launched the first out of several projects under our Innovation Lab. We’re looking to introduce more Innovation Lab projects in the coming months.

2nd Segment: Questions from the Twitter announcement:

Host: 1: Written on the website that StrongNode will operate in a B2B and B2C business model. Could you share with us, what StrongNode products are suitable for B2B and which StrongNode products are suitable for B2C? as individual customers why do we need a StrongNode?

Question by LinhHong211

Brandon Sivret: Examples of B2B customers are genome labs, AI/machine learning, or anyone with a large data compute requirement. We will onboard more of this customer to provide their data to be batch processed on our network. So you as the user / B2C can keep your digital devices on and connected to receive $SNE tokens. As mentioned earlier, we like the concept of democratizing your computer, commoditizing your computer resources.

The awesome thing about the StrongNode ecosystem is that each B2B and B2C user can be a customer and a provider. This is how we create new economies and achieve significant growth.

Host: 2: What are your top priorities in 2021? Could you share some plans for the upcoming year? Which part of the project are you most focused on right now?

Question by Lalpori11

Brandon Sivret: We are now on the next phase. Right after our IDO has launched, we were working on taking the project to the next step. As mentioned earlier, our community can anticipate the app preview at the end of the year and we plan to enable all the application centric with crypto staking (for uptime) to be available around Q1 2022.

Daniel, our CEO and Co-founder, said, “Our long-term goal stays the same: having the StrongNode platform where people can realize the true potential of their idle resources at the Edge. The tech and the business side of things are top priority to have a full ecosystem with many different players working alongside each other on a common mission.” Our immediate releases scheduled are StrongNode ID, single staking, and the dashboard it will live in. We will soon publish our whitepaper and an updated roadmap on our website covering the next phase for our StrongNode project from 2022 and beyond.

Host: 3: On StrongNode there are two types of roles; “Node Partners” and “Node Clients”, can you tell us more about them? What functions does each one of these roles have within the development of StrongNode? How can someone be one or the other?

Question by AadanFaheem

Brandon Sivret: This is the earlier version of nodes within our StrongNode ecosystem. We are now using new terms in addressing such roles and its functions.

Let’s define the node categories for the StrongNode Ecosystem: (1) Node Enterprise, (2) Node Seeders, and (3) Node Innovators.

Enterprise nodes have greater or maybe smaller compute needs and can take advantage of the power our seeders provide. Node Seeders are users who get $SNE for providing their idle resources (CPU/GPU, bandwidth, storage) but an Enterprise Node that has an abundance of excess capacity at certain times can then turn around and provide access. The Node Innovators, including OGLife, reward seeders and facilitate the economy between users. They also act as a central part of our user acquisition strategy to bring more nodes into the network.

3rd Segment: Community round

Q1: -Are you planning to promote, your project in different countries where English, is not good???

-Do you have a local community, for them to better understand your project??,

Question by sibi2004

Brandon Sivret: e do have multiple local and regional communities for StrongNode including Africa, Indonesia, South Korea, and Vietnam. It has always been our goal to have multiple communities throughout the world, so I recommend joining through our main telegram chat and then connecting to your local language or to your region.

Q2: What gives you hope for the survival and long-term success of Your initiative in the near future? Do you consider community comments and needs as you develop your project?

Question by ginabori

Brandon Sivret: We’re providing a utility service with our token, so it is dependent upon the use of our technology. We’re engaged closely with our community and those who have something to contribute are included in our discussions very often. Our future projects, OGLife, and others in the ecosystem are very dependent upon community involvement and the design of Original Gamer Life itself is being tied closely to the community and their comments. We will have feature voting to help prioritize additional features outside the core roadmap based on our governance model with staking.

Q3: What is your long-term vision for the industry that StrongNode is working in? Is StrongNode afraid that one day there will be another project with more advanced technology that can replace your project?

Question by minhgiangvipp

Brandon Sivret: Our CEO Daniel Saito and CTO Colin Charles have been responsible for some of the most widely used technology in the world; MySQL and MariaDB. Daniel has launched ISPs, satellites, and worked on SEGA.NET as well as the security protocol for MPEG-4. We all use technology the team has developed every single day and may not realize it. The technology we develop with StrongNode will only continue to grow and advance on its own merits.

Q4: “Edge Networking”, “Automated Workflows”, “Leverage Resources”, “Scalability” and “Innovations Lab” are considered StrongNode’s advantages based on your website. Which one of them do you think is more important than the other? What is the level of significance here?

Question by CRYPTO_LAVER_0

Brandon Sivret: They all work together to form the ecosystem and multiple economies I’ve discussed throughout the AMA, so to put one above the other is a bit difficult. They all form the basis for how we’ve designed this ecosystem and all play a role together. Edge Networking is the method by which we deploy our nodes and provide our product. Leveraging Resources is how we utilize our nodes to execute our services at the lowest tier. Automated Workflows and Innovations Labs help us provide Scalability to our clients and our nodes by creating turn key solutions for rapid development and user acquisition/adoption.

Q5: I noted that #StrongNode is developing a product called #StrongNodeID which you have said before that will be a safer and faster KYC solution. So, can you tell us more about said product?

Question by @Angelle786

Brandon Sivret: Imagine using KYC and StrongNodeID as a Single Sign On solution similar to how you can Sign in With Google or Sign in With Facebook on a lot of other sites. Now, use that with crypto projects and you’ve got a solution that makes it easier for fully KYC’d people to quickly and easily get involved in new or existing projects. We all have had to KYC at some point or another and it can be incredibly frustrating to go through the process over and over again. We’re seeking to solve that issue with StrongNodeID. We also need to ensure that we are compliant with all KYC requirements in various countries, so that is why we want to ensure we have a robust process and system in place.
