Asaf Naim, CEO: The Liquid Vault is more than just a crypto wallet - it's a complete suite of solutions for DeFi. The crypto industry was lacking many of the services that are nowadays taken for granted in the fiat world, and crypto users were going to centralized exchanges to fill the gap. Now they’ll have a decentralized way to do all these things.
Asaf Naim, CEO: We have a really long roadmap and we're going to be integrating a wide range of tools into the Liquid Vault. But to begin with, the Backup feature protects users from losing access to the vault, and Inheritance enables people to leave money to their loved ones in case the worst happens. The vault is also connected to popular dapps like Uniswap and Opensea, so that users can trade crypto and NFTs from one platform.
Later, we'll be adding trading capabilities that are currently only available at centralized exchanges. The most interesting thing about all these mechanisms is that they are powered by the community, using a smart contract so that you don't have to trust anyone. That means that the network will eventually operate independently of Kirobo - we’ve created something bigger than us! We're also in the process of setting up a DAO so as to remove ourselves from the governance process entirely.
Asaf Naim, CEO: Features like Backup are based on smart contracts and require an activation trigger, and that trigger is our community members. This process is powered by our utility token, KIRO, that serves as the reward for community members that activate features for the benefit of other users. We've invented a system for future blockchain transactions, based on conditions that the users themselves set. It's a real game-changer for cryptocurrency.
Asaf Naim, CEO: Firstly, the system is open source and viewable to everyone. Secondly, all of our solutions are non-custodial - that means that we can’t touch our users’ money. The Liquid Vault provides users with an access interface to assets held on the public blockchain. Third, the network has been audited by several different leading external companies, and of course we’ve published the results.
Asaf Naim, CEO: Yes. Currently it's offered as a separate service, but our roadmap includes integrating it into the vault, which will make for a smoother user experience. It’s a proven system, having processed more than $1.7 billion worth of crypto transactions, and it will give an extra layer of protection to inheritance transfers.
Asaf Naim, CEO: 2021 was really busy - apart from product launches, KIRO was just listed on its first two centralized exchanges - and 2022 will be even busier. One thing I can reveal is an amazing new NFT project. Kirobo Collectibles are more than just unique pieces of art - they have a very unique utility. You'll have to wait to see what they can do though.
Where do you see Kirobo in the next 5 years?
Asaf Naim, CEO: I'm not going to talk about Kirobo the company, but the ecosystem that we're setting up. We’re bridging the gap between DeFi and CeFi, and as our network effect grows, people will learn that they don’t need centralized solutions for decentralized assets. I expect the word ‘Kirobo’ to become synonymous with DeFi.
