“Without blockchain, everything would seem like one endless Groundhog Day. I was not prepared to submit to this regime, so I decided to do something about it.
Don Tapscott made a big influence on me when talking about the blockchain universe and how it inspiring it can be. But so did Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden.”
To introduce Teuta to our community, we conducted a short interview with her. Please enjoy!
What excites you about Unido?
Unido represents exactly what I love about blockchain itself, being the innovative technology that allows businesses to operate faster and cheaper with greater transparency and security.
What excites me the most is that I believe Unido can solve the problem of trust and provide transparency, immutability and security. Also, Unido seems to be changing the way people interact with each other and I am excited to see what the future holds for the SME crypto sector.
What are some of the milestones you look forward to?
As Unido is constantly working on accelerating enterprise Defi adoption, in the near term I expect even more neo banks and Fintech companies to expand their product offerings to include cryptocurrency and standardized Defi products.
I also expect Unido to help bridge the digital and physical worlds by making alternative asset classes much more liquid and interchangeable.
The truth is, Defi won’t replace our financial infrastructure entirely. The two will coexist but traditional institutions will eventually have to navigate this complex landscape and that’s where Unido will shine.
What are some of the challenges you are looking to tackle?
There are a few questions one should ask when considering blockchain solutions for an enterprise. The main challenge is to find the right problem before you can build the right solution. I believe Unido can help businesses solve a few scenarios such as efficient data processing, offering of trusted transactions and secure business networks and successful creation, issuance, and managing of digital assets.
Many entrepreneurs have been overwhelmed with new expectations regarding the technological innovations within their businesses. Unido EP is definitely unique because it simplifies that process by creating a bridge between enterprises and DeFi markets allowing secure digital asset custody, featuring corporate governance mapping at the blockchain level, augmented with a ‘point and click’ DeFi investing dashboard and real-time analytics.
What I tend to do through my work is to represent blockchain technology to ‘ordinary people’ who are not necessarily into Fintech per se. It is important to realize that the blockchain revolution is inevitable but that it’s also a great thing to be a part of. The only thing our clients have to do is to say ‘Yes’. Unido can do the rest, I’m sure.
Where do you see Unido in 5 years and how will it get there?
Blockchain technology has become an essential part of the enterprise software stack for most organizations that want to streamline business processes and issue digital assets. The brain drain from legacy technology and the finance industry will continue. Young people, and increasingly the most skilled people, want to focus their talents on the industry where they can have the greatest impact. This evolution has only begun and will likely accelerate in the next five years. With the $UDO token being recognized by all big exchanges, and with a constantly growing ecosystem, for Unido, only sky is the limit.
Any last thoughts or words for Unido community?
Grab your tickets on time cause this will be one hell of a ride.
