BitMart, a premier global digital asset trading platform, recently listed CurrentCoin (token symbol: CUR). CurrentCoin is a blockchain for marketplaces and a 'connector' coin that makes digital services fast, efficient and convenient. CurrentCoin community members will be able to use it to join organizations that enable them to complete workflows and find opportunities. They're moving towards an enterprise-grade blockchain, and working to ensure that users the world over can create value through our network.
On September 22, 2020, to better help BitMart users know more about CurrentCoin and its team, we held a Telegram AMA with the topic of “CurrentCoin: Connecting the World". We are pleased to have Julian Martinez, Founder of CurrentCoin, join the AMA and share valuable insights with our community members.

[ABOUT THE GUEST SPEAKER]
Julian Martinez has been a member of the San Francisco tech scene since 2013. He was approximately employee #50 at Ripple, where he built out and managed a small team focused on both consumer and commercial solutions. His full-time cryptocurrency education began in 2014, where he learned how to send a cryptocurrency back and forth from the command line. Today he works full-time on CurrentCoin as a project manager, and crypto+web developer. While he’s usually thinking about Ethereum, React or Hyperledger, he’s answered thousands of questions about public and private keys, wallets, and general best practices, and he’s happy to speak to the community today.
Q1. What is CurrentCoin's purpose?
Our general position is that crypto is still, in 2020, too difficult for the average user to use. Many people are interested in DeFi for example, but couldn’t tell you what a liquidity pool is, or how to use it.
CurrentCoin is looking to change that. We see ourselves as the ‘connector’ coin. We want crypto to be more accessible and user-friendly.
Many of our contributors have a background in enterprise blockchains, and our ultimate goal is to become a blockchain for marketplaces, working towards making digital services fast, efficient and convenient.
Q2. What can users of CurrentCoin use it to do?
Our community members will be able to use CurrentCoin to join organizations that pay off for completing their workflows. While we are still building out the details, that is our vision.
Q3. What is CurrentCoin's relationship to Ethereum?
We are an ERC-20 coin. It was a good choice for us, and allowed us to come to market more quickly. Many good projects are on Ethereum today, as people here have surely noticed.
However, we do find the high fees and the time it takes to send to be problematic, and for that reason we have plans for a different main net.
Q4. What is CurrentCoin's main net?
We plan to spin up our own blockchain on Hyperledger Iroha, to do away with the problem of fees in Ethereum.
We'll also have a well-defined transition process, when we're ready to make the transition.
Q5. What is CurrentCoin's history?
CurrentCoin has raised over 8700 in Ether, which amounted to over 2 million in U.S. dollars at the time it was collected.
We've also been working quietly since our debut in 2018 to build up the technologies we need to achieve our goal, while staying within our budget.
We've been in continuous operation since that time, working on expanding our name recognition and audience (of which this is a part).
Q6. Who contributed to CurrentCoin?
You can see a list of everyone who's contributed on our currentcoin.io page. We have a strong engineering talent network originally based out of Silicon Valley, particularly around San Francisco and the Bay Area.
I was an engineer at Ripple and managed a team within Client Services that assisted financial institutions. I'm now looking to bring as much of that early vision out to connecting people using crypto around the world, as much as possible.
Q7. How do you communicate with users?
We use Twitter and post to our blog, principally.
You can find us at https://twitter.com/CurrentCoin and https://www.currentcoin.io/posts, respectively.
Q8. What will CurrentCoin be doing in the next year?
We're looking to raise our profile and become more known to the crypto community in general; see, for example, our recent listing on CoinGecko.
We're definitely looking to build more, and release a high-profile project.
We'd also like to hear from you, the community: What would you like for us to concentrate on? Where would you like to see us devote more energy?
Please let us know, because we're here to listen and we value your input.
