I Didn’t Own Any Cryptocurrency Before Beam, Not Even Bitcoin – Beam CTO, Alex Romanov
I did not have any relation or experience with any other cryptocurrency or blockchain.
The Chief Technical Officer of Beam Alex Romanov has revealed the first cryptocurrency he ever owned. He said in the CryptoTvplus AMA Series on the 25th of November that Beam was the first cryptocurrency he owned. Not even bitcoin, he emphasized.
He said the Beam project was the first blockchain related project he undertook. Before I started, he explained, “I did not have any relation or experience with any other cryptocurrency or blockchain. In fact, I didn’t even own any other cryptocurrency before Beam. Beam was the first cryptocurrency I actually first owned.”
This is like true for most of the team I think. We were new to this space and had to learn everything from scratch very quickly, which we did and eventually we produce Beam, Alex added.
In the AMA session which was focused on the Beam Confidential DeFi Ecosystem, Alex also revealed the project did a hard fork in July and added a feature amongst others called Confidential Assets.
This feature allows anyone to create a confidential token easily without special development skills.
He also expressed his opinion on the future of the industry with emphasis on regulations as it affects privacy coins.
He said “we’ll see regulations moving forward to adapt to the new reality and understanding privacy is not something bad but something good that people need to be able to trade on blockchain”
