By Vladimir Nikitin (TOP ICO Advisor from the company Top ICO Advisors).
Interview with Kent Yan, the CEO of the ICO Project TraDove, which has raised $50 million so far.
Could you tell us briefly about your background?
I am an MIT graduate with a MS in EECS and an MBA in Finance. My work experience spans from IT to Investment Banking to International Trade. I used to work for Pepsico, Deutsche Bank and Bristol Meyers Squibb, so I understand technology, finance and business pretty well.
Tell us about how the idea of creating TraDove was born: what is the main idea?
In my first company, I was helping US companies source businesses in China; companies like Anderson Windows, Anheuser-Busch. I found out there are major problems in B2B. So I came up with the idea to create a business-oriented social network and bring quality business people in so they can find each other in clicks rather than weeks. They can make the B2B process more transparent by sharing their opinions, experiences and knowledge. They can do precision advertising based on people’s business profile and expressed needs. We call it B2B 2.0.
You have a very solid team of advisors, such as Nathan Christian, Ian Scarffe, Stan Milk, Greg Limon, David Drake. How did you attract them?
First of all, we are fortunate and honored to have them involved with us. I think great people like what we are doing; it’s both unique and revolutionary. They want to be part of it. The money aspect is secondary. They are willing to join within our financial constraint and are willing to share success.
Why do you think your project has become so popular and attracted so many investors?
I think it is a combination of the idea and the people we have. We are the first B2B token offering. Opening up corporate demand for cryptocurrencies for their marketing and sales needs.
Will you reach the hard cap?
In a couple of days, we will have that answer.
What is the biggest opportunity that you see for TraDove?
To change the way in which people do business.
Describe your company in one word?
‘Revolutionary’ would be the word.
I am also eager to know if you’re planning any exciting partnerships in the near future?
We have them in the pipeline and it is formulated into our strategic plan. Stay tuned.
Please explain why some current ICOs get plenty of publicity, like TraDove and Truegame, and others can’t get heard?
I think it has to do with the idea and the people. We bring in something very different and ground-breaking. Again, we are the first B2B token offering. Opening up corporate demand for cryptocurrencies for their marketing and sales needs.
In your opinion when will 1 Bitcoin cost over 100k USD?
If you don’t mind, I will let God answer that question. He knows more than I do (laughing).
Thank you for taking the time Kent, and the best of luck to you and TraDove
