Host: Elvin, CryptoIA Co-Founder

Guest: Bob Chien, Ph.D., Head of Community & Marketing of NAOS

Elvin

Hello, everyone. We are so excited to have you here today. Let’s invite Bob Chien, Ph.D, Head of Community & Marketing of NAOS to introduce “Bringing Real World Assets into DeFi at Scale” to us.

Thanks for taking your time with us today! Could you introduce yourself to our community firstly?

Bob Chien

Yes. This is Bob Chien, I’m now the Head of Marketing and community to NAOS finance. Before NAOS, I’m a supply chain/ e-commerce owner and cofounded several companies as well.

I saw the great value in NAOS and I deeply understand the value that NAOS can bring on the table for SMBs so I decided to join NAOS.

Thanks.

Elvin

We have prepared 12 questions for you to give us a deeper understanding of NAOS Finance today.

Bob Chien

12 questions! Wow, that’s a lot, haha.

Elvin

Hope our members can understand NAOS deeper after the AMA. Let’s begin.

Q1 What are the goals that you are aimed to achieve?

Bob Chien

We are creating a decentralized financial network

1. Enables the origination and funding of loans without traditional intermediaries
2. Instills full transparency in the previously opaque risk assessment and loan application process
3. Breaks the geographic boundaries for lenders and borrowers to transact in a borderless fashion
4. Transfers financial value (interest spreads, service fees) from financial institutions to lenders and borrowers
5. Offers the best interest rate on any comparable loan of the same risk profile and terms
6. Transfers custodial ownership of accounts from financial institutions to individuals
7. Democratizes irrefutable and immutable loan performance data that was held closely by centralized institutions
8. Solve the issue of overcollateralization in the DeFi space by leveraging safe, stable and insured assets off-chain to back our investor’s on-chain activities.
9. Accelerates the growth of the overall DeFi ecosystem with real world applications

To accomplish these ambitious goals, we need more than participation from the DeFi community.

We need you!

Thank you :)

Elvin

Q2 Could you share the recent progress and your future plan about NAOS Finance with us, such as token sale, airdrop plan, staking and so on?

Bob Chien

Great great question.
IDO is coming, it’s on 4/30;

After that we will have competition for airdrops, and then testnet will be online in Q2;

Staking protocol will be online in Q2 as well;

Q3 we will have our mainnet online;

Q4 will be integrating with other “chains” and ecosystems.

Thanks!

Elvin

Q3 When is your public sale?

Bob Chien

4/30 IDO

we do have plan to get listed in CEX very soon

so please follow us :)

Thanks.

Elvin

Q4 Does NAOS own their own real world assets?

Bob Chien

NAOS works directly with fintech partners based all around the world. These partners are fully licensed in their respective and help NAOS evaluate corporate assets based upon their risk profile, balance sheet health and loan requests. We understand some projects might look to “own” the assets, but they run the risk of running into regulatory red tape as things aren’t as cut and dry in the real world. Therefore, we believe that working with origination partners who are not only licensed, but also insured, provides a safety net that other protocols can’t match. Ultimately this is our competitive differentiator.

Thanks.

Elvin

Q5 Where do the assets come from?

Bob Chien

Assets are provided by our asset origination partners situated all around the world. These assets comprise of corporate and institutional debt similar to accounts receivables and purchase orders but may also include supply chain and inventory financing. Our team is actively working with other asset originators in order to bring a diverse set of assets onto the chain. We think this is just the start. As more and more traditional real world companies begin seeing the value that the blockchain can unlock, we think its only a matter of time before we start seeing the flood of businesses. The assets will have different contract terms, and the asset portfolio will be managed so that we are onboarding assets continuously to generate returns for the investors.

Thanks.

Elvin

Q6 What happens to the holders of NAOS tokens when real world assets default?

Bob Chien

Good question!

The biggest difference between NAOS and other projects are the real world asset volume and how do we do your compliance work. NAOS has financial licenses in 4 countries and can directly connect with traditional companies and borrowers off the chain. On the asset side, we havenearly 600M USD asset originated, that makes NAOS the largest project of RWA on-chain. In addition, the core team all have traditional finance and Internet finance backgrounds, and can evaluate company assets and credit ratings based on their risk status, balance sheet status, and loan requests.

Thanks.

Elvin

Q10 Who are your investors?

Bob Chien

We are lucky to have the supports from the top DeFi funds include Mechanism Capital, Maven 11, SNZ, DeFi Alliance, and funds with trading backgrounds include CMS, Genesis Block, and overseas funds include Spartan Group, Sora Ventures, and domestic Early-stage funds include Youbi Capital and Incuba Alpha. At present, three of the five largest exchanges in trading volume are our investors.
