based on geography.
Currently I am working on big Metaverse Project.
I believe in innovation and leading others to provide value to the community, my curiosity is my super power, because that is the only thing that keeps me alive and force me to work until expected result is achieved.
31. What’s your aspiration for blockchain technology? I believe Blockchain Technology is something which is totally changing the concept of open source, finances and how things operate in current scenario. Blockchain reward contributors to the fullest for their time, finances/transaction are 100% transparent: the day is not very far when DAOs will take over on all Tech Giants.
Blockchain space is totally free to innovate and with grants such as (AKASH DEVELOPER GRANTS) , mental barrier of funds for innovators is also solved by blockchain companies. I really believe Blockchain is the future and no one can ban or force it to stop, it will keep evolving.
32. If you had $1 million in grant funding what would you do? I would make a very strong team of innovators with different skills and expertise, and would lead towards a process of unlimited innovation with some amazing digital as well as physical products which benefits humanity and this world, some products could be launched to maintain the flow of funds to keep this process rolling.
Basically a strong team which together grows, launch and experiment to impact on this world… Will also note down the concerns of everyone of whats stopping them to do what they want in their life and will try my best to solve the issue: it maybe related to idea/projects on which they are working or in their life… and
33. Who will benefit most from your project? Large entities with big community, individuals , Everyone who wants to manage their social media community (ex- discord)
34. How will you help grow the Akash community? All discord bots will be configured to be deployed on akash in few clicks and well written guide will be maintained to use bots: everyone will be able to deploy their own dedicated bots on akash network with docker image we will provide
35. How will you make Akash approachable to developers? We will configure bots in a very seamless way so they can be deployed on akash in few clicks and also well written guide will be maintained to use bots on akash: all bots will be open source
36. How do you think Akash should improve? Akash should promote itself amongs non-blockchain users so non-blockchain community also understands that akash is all-rounder. Promotion amongst engineering students is also important, akash could tie up with colleges to give free support to students small semester projects.
37. How would you utilize the grant funding? Funding will be utilized to maintain some tools and testing deploy on akash network. Some part of funds will be utilize to compensate team members/ engineers developing bots.
