INTERNXT: I am Fran Villalba Segarra, Founder & CEO at Internxt. I’m 20 years old, and love new-tech and entrepreneurship, amongst others. I started with smaller online projects at the age of 14 and have also worked at a big internet company. I gave my next step and started Internxt with my experience and funds.
BitcoinX: Tell us – what is INTERNXT? What is the main idea behind the project and why did you decide to start it?
INTERNXT: Internxt is a decentralized cloud infrastructure that strives to help shape a new, more private and secure internet. We believe that companies and governments have too much control over people. Although we believe there still needs to be some regulation, we also think that this needs to be limited more than what’s now. Additionally, from a security point of view our technology will be more secure than traditional cloud services thanks to decentralization and blockchain.
BitcoinX: Blockchain technology is expected to alter the landscape and/or create efficiencies in almost every industry. In what ways does your technology address these?
INTERNXT: We will be making use of blockchain technology in abundance throughout our whole technology. In general terms, I believe that blockchain will successfully be applied to many different industries. However, I also think that there are being created many projects using blockchain technology which make little or no sense at all, following the blockchain hype. I think these will end up disappearing.
BitcoinX: When and why did you first decide to do an ICO?
INTERNXT: We needed funds to develop the technology we think will revolutionize the way we use the internet and the cloud, thus we decided that an ICO was the best idea to do so. Our ICO will take place on Sept 7th. Min cap is set to 500ETH and we expect to raise a maximum of 150,000ETH. If we don’t reach the 500ETH we’ll refund the sent ETH.
BitcoinX: Tell us about what preparation was required to get the project to this point?
INTERNXT: We have been working on Internxt the whole 2017, and released the whitepaper 3 weeks ago. We are all Ethereum developers, with broad knowledge in the blockchain/decentralized industry.
BitcoinX: What makes this project especially exciting for ICO participants? What makes them want to join?
INTERNXT: We are a company that’s taking blockchain seriously and using it to disrupt an industry that makes sense to change. We have a min cap we need to start developing our technology. We believe that Internxt can truly become the next big cloud infrastructure. We are bringing a superior, decentralized technology into the mass market, by making it intuitive and price-competitive.
BitcoinX: Where are you in the actual development phase of the project?
INTERNXT: We have developed an in-depth draft of what we want to develop to know exactly how to proceed and how much time and money it’d cost us to bring our idea to the market.
BitcoinX: After a successful ICO, what is the timeline for coming to market?
INTERNXT: We want to bring a beta to the market in early/mid 2018 and have a final product in end 2018/early 2019.
BitcoinX: Are you focused in any specific geographic areas?
INTERNXT: We are a global technology 🙂
BitcoinX: For those who have read your whitepaper and other info, is there anything else you want to add to convince them to participate?
INTERNXT: We encourage everyone to join us in this exciting challenge. We’ll definitely try as hard as we can to disrupt the cloud industry.
