BASE.INFO team has interviewed Tyreka Shepard the Senior Vice President of Marketing at KWHCoin project. We have asked the most topical questions to get acquainted with the project and to learn the future plans of the KWHCoin team.
Please welcome, Tyreka Shepard.
Do you remember the day, when you and your team decided to launch this project? Can you tell us about it?
The brains behind this immaculate idea would be Girard Newkirk, Founder and CEO of KWHCoin. Mr. Newkirk got involved with cryptocurrency back in 2015 and with his interest in renewable energy and his passion for making a difference in the world sprung the idea of using blockchain technology to not only lower the barriers of energy access, but to also provide sustainable energy solutions for the better benefit of humanity.
Could you briefly describe your project?
Our mission is to provide access to clean, renewable energy to the over 500 billion households through the use of blockchain technology. We're creating an application that will allow peer to peer transfer of renewable energy making energy more accessible and affordable.
Why it differs among the other cryptocurrency ideas? What main feature can be the significant one?
KWHCoin is a very unique project as we are not just a cryptocurrency idea. Our projects and business models are creating sustainable energy solutions globally through manufacturing and delivering our own branded solar home systems, building out energy infrastructures, creating a new means of exchange through the use of the KWHCoin and developing a decentralized energy economy to give power back to the people.
What are 3 main difficulties in running the cryptocurrency project?
As with any startup or growing business there are numerous amounts of growing pains, but we have managed to stay focused and knowing that all goals will not be completed in one day helps us to stay grounded and well-rounded as a growing team.
What about the legal restrictions? What are your thoughts on the subject?
In regards to legal restrictions we see those are rules and regulations which is expected when establishing and building a company. We adhere to all regulations in order to remain in accordance and to avoid any penalties that will hinder the growth of our company.
Describe your team in a few sentences? What do you value in your colleagues?
We have a very diverse and motivated team. We value the time and skills that our team members dedicate to this company and all of it's projects. This team has overcome many obstacles and friction points designed to set us back, but we've conquered them all together and continue to grow as a decentralized, but structured organization.
Could you tell us about one error in project’s development that provided a great lesson to your team?
We are all very passionate about this company's mission and we sometimes feel as though we can change the world in a day. We've learned that all great things take time and in order to succeed we must strategically and logically consider each decision made as it will have lasting effects on the company as a whole.
What are your thoughts about the future of the blockchain in the world? What industries will be influenced most of all?
My thoughts on the future of blockchain in the world is simple..Learn all you can while you can to prepare yourself for, what I like to call, "The Fourth Revolution." This technology is new, but intriguing. More and more businesses are taking interest in this technology and how it can benefit their daily tasks and responsibilities including, but not limited to: Banking, Healthcare, Finance, Insurance etc.
Can you give a piece of advice to our readers?
My advice to readers is to Be a leader! Challenge yourself! Invest the time to learn and understand the real truth behind blockchain technology and cryptocurrency and what it's purpose serves. We must surpass this theory of blockchain technology just being an idea and educate others on the true benefits of this new emerging technology!
