The CEO of EMURGO, Ken Kodama recently sat down with CryptoSlate in a recent interview where he discussed some of the milestones the team have had as well as Cardano’s progress in the space.
For those that don’t know, EMURGO is the commercial arm of Cardano and as the chief of the subsidiary, Kodama spearheads the overall mission to further the adoption of Cardano by building, investing in, and giving advice to projects or organisations that adopt the third-generation decentralised blockchain ecosystem.
Here are some of the highlights of the interview Kodama had with CS.
To start with, the interviewer asked Kodama about the big fets the project had made over the past two years and how EMURGO can assist the rate of adoption:
“EMURGO, as the official commercial arm of Cardano & its Cardano ecosystem partners IOHK and the Cardano Foundation recently celebrated the 2nd year anniversary of Cardano’s ADA first exchange listing in September 2017. Over the past two years, EMURGO has rapidly expanded its bases in Singapore, Japan, India, Indonesia and New York.”
He continues, saying:
“From the onset, EMURGO has strategically laid out a multi-pronged approach to build a global Cardano by embracing a set of dual objectives:
- Add value to ADA holders by building, investing in, and advising projects or organizations that adopt Cardano’s decentralized blockchain ecosystem.
- Accelerate and drive the practical application of ADA and provide utility & liquidity to ADA holders. For example: getting ADA listed on exchanges, getting merchants to adopt ADA payments, developing a mobile ADA wallet, developing a Cardano Blockchain Explorer (Seiza), and so on.”
Following on from this, CS asked Kodama about the products they are working on including Yoroi Wallet, Seiza Cardano Explorer, and Tangata Manu.
“All three of these products were developed by EMURGO to drive adoption of Cardano and bring value to ADA holders. Yoroi Wallet is a light-client wallet for Cardano ADA users that is specifically designed to be simple, fast, and secure – a financial gateway to the future. Yoroi is fully functional and available for free download on iOS, Android, Chrome, & Firefox extension. To date, Yoroi Wallet has consistently enjoyed an excellent rating in all of its available app stores as it has delivered a spectacular user experience and also has a full engineering team developing updates and offering technical support on a full-time basis. Over the coming months, EMURGO will roll out new updates and features for Yoroi Wallet to make for a greater user experience.”
More of these highlights will be posted later today, so make sure you keep it with CryptoDaily!
