Host: Amazing 😊💯
Q4) Please give us a sneak peak of your Roadmap?
Lokesh Rao: Trace’s journey is divided in 3 main segments, firstly getting brands to issue goods using NFTs for the purpose of digital ownership and originality, which will be released in 1st quarter of 2021..
This NFT module further shall enable further strengthening the Brand and Customer relationship by enabling warranty management and loyalty management using the NFTs for these services
In next phase , we will enable business networks to share their data in a secured and anonymous manner with their chosen business partners, hence simplifying the process of data capturing at businesses. This will reduce the cost of duplicate data entry, and will also bring more transparency and efficiency to the whole process. This phase, will enable end to end traceability of the products on chain, being verified via Trace wallet..
And the final phase is where using this data to use act as proof of business, we will open financing options for businesses, where they can either take early payment or loan against their invoices or seek working capital financing from the protocol.
Host: I must say the insights you are giving is worth reading ! 🔥💯
Q5) What makes Trace Network better than its competitors?
Lokesh Rao: You know, building consumer tech product and building enterprise tech product these two are completely different ball game altogether. It requires an indept understanding of whole ecosystem, finding avenues for product adoption and then finally delivering a product which generates value to the businesses.. We are two co-founders and have an able team of professionals as part of the main teams with experience in Blockchain, enterprise tech and global Solution foot print. This combination is must and rare as well in the space where Trace Network would be putting its foot😊.
Host: With this we come to the end of very first segment . 😊
Now let’s move forward to the segment-2 ( questions from Twitter )
First question from Twitter
As it is known that Trace uses a white label algorithm for stable coins. And how effective is this model in preventing a token or digital coin from depreciating over time?
Lokesh Rao: The volatility and appreciation in trace token price reduces the continuous injection for funds to be used as collateral for underlying stable coins being issued.
Host: Amazing 🔥
Second question from Twitter
How do you plan to spread awareness about your project in different countries, where English is not spoken well? Do you have local communities for them to let them better understand about this project?
Lokesh Rao: We are working with our able advisors to enable reach into various different geographies and building solid regional communities..
Host: Third question from Twitter
Do you have any plans to attract non-crypto investors to your project Because it is the success of a project to get more investors who are still not in the crypto world. What are the plans to increase awareness around your in non-crypto space?
Lokesh Rao: Absolutely , non-crypto population is huge and are definitely are on our focus.
However, attracting the non crypto investors would be a gradual process and shall be done strategically . Once the businesses would start onboarding and start interacting with the utilities of trace network , this would help them understand the real values they would get by investing in Trace. For ex, everyone like to use the gift coupons, discount coupons, and Trace would enable minting of such brand coupon NFTs by staking Trace Tokens. More and more such provisions would be enabled for community to get real benefits of having hold of Trace tokens.
Host: Alright 😊✨ 👍
Fourth question from Twitter
Only getting users, holders etc is not everything. In my opinion, a project needs to deal with solving a real world issue or problem What is the problem that your project primarily focuses on?
Lokesh Rao: Trace Network primarily stands to bring brands and its loyal customers closer with its NFT based community programs and solving the liquidity problem for businesses with DEFI .
Host: Fifth question from Twitter
Q:Nowdays So many Rug Pulls and exit scam happening . How Users can trust your project and how you are different from others?
Lokesh Rao: First and foremost.. we are an enterprise focused business having real customers hence disappearing with user’s money is a big risk for us and the reputation. Secondly, we the founders have legit long standing industry reputation with more than 200+ companies world wide (not yet for trace, but as a result of previous work in the industry) no sensible person will ever do risk that for a simple money grab. Now last but not the least, Trace network is not starting with defi as a module, instead community modules based on NFTs. hence there will be enough test of time for the protocol and the team.
Host: With this we come to the successful end of segment -2 as well . 😊
And I must say @traceraolokesh you are very prompt and clear in giving your answers and that’s so commendable of you .
Now moving ahead towards segment-3
Lokesh Rao: Sure.
Host: Segment -3 ( live session ) in which I will be unmuting chat for 100 seconds and all the members can raise their questions between that .
After completion of 100 seconds , chat will be muted and @traceraolokesh will select best 5 questions followed by his answers .
Shall we begin sir ?
Lokesh Rao: Yes, we can.

How does Trace Network understand the evolution of NFTs in the modern world and crypto space? What’s the difference of Trace Network NFTs than to other platforms?
What are the uses-case of the NFTs of Trace Network?
[In reply to Demvrick]
The key differentiator is that NFTs of trace network for brands are digital ownership transfer of goods, linked to this brands will be able to offer various value added services to their customers like warranty, better incentives for upgrades. Rewards for loyal users etc. Many more use cases, which actually these businesses will discover more than us as we go along the journey with them as a technology protocol built with a vision to redefine the consumer connect for brands with the help of NFTs , DLT and Defi.
Melissa Zieme, [08.04.21 15:55]
How does Trace Network provide transparency and safety for their users and what sort of a reward structure is there for the token holders?
[In reply to Melissa Zieme]
Trace token holders will be able to get various incentives from the brands onboarding trace network including trace project itself. In fact this community project is going to be the first module going LIVE, right after the token launch. Further, as we go along there are many stand alone products of trace network which will require trace to be locked for minting various NFTs at consumer level. Further, imagine trace holders funding the financial needs of global brands and participating in the manufacturing of some international products. as a result being rewarded with real returns or brand specific programs
HOÀNG TOÁN, [08.04.21 15:55]
