[Subash Gautam]

Thank you.

A pleasure to be here.

[May]

How’s your day going?

[Subash Gautam]

Going good. What about you?

[May]

Great great.

Looking forward to an amazing session!

For starters, can you please tell us about yourself and your role at Zebec?

[Subash Gautam]

Sure. I am Subash Gautam, cofounder and head of growth at Zebec Protocol.

I've been in Blockchain for 4 years now. I've also published a research paper on Blockchain & Remittance as a part of my undergrad thesis.

[May]

A pleasure to have you over!

An impressive introduction by you as well!

Let’s get right into the session.

[Subash Gautam]

thank you

sounds good

[May]

Can you briefly tell what Zebec is about? We would like to know more about it and the inspiration that birthed the project.

[Subash Gautam]

Sure

Zebec is a Solana-based DeFi protocol that aims to redefine how people perceive money through the continuous settlement of money.

We were amazed by the fact that you could transfer tokens on a per-second basis from one wallet to another. Our journey started from there and we went to build Zebec Pay, a crypto payroll solution that allows employers to send money to their employees on a per-second basis on stablecoins. After Zebec Pay, we introduced Zebec Multisig to help crypto companies on Solana Blockchain manage crypto treasury effectively.

[May]

Impressive!

What are the innovative solutions that distinguish Zebec from similar protocols on other blockchains and what competitive advantages do you have?

[Subash Gautam]

Zebec is different from others in a lot of ways. First, Zebec has a pause and resume option that allows users to pause & resume streams whereas other protocols don't have pause and resume functions. Second, on top of payment streaming, Zebec has a payroll solution like that of Gusto, that enables receiving salary in crypto and filing taxes whereas other protocols only allow streaming of payment and nothing else. Third, since Zebec is based in Solana Blockchain, Zebec has the fastest transaction speed and lower transaction fees.

[May]

Why did you choose the Solana blockchain and are you working on multichain compatibility?

[Subash Gautam]

We choose Solana Blockchain because of its amazingly high transaction speed and very low transaction cost, which we believe can help us scale to a large mass. Currently, we're not working on multi-chain compatibility but we plan to do that in the future/.

[May]

Looking forward to it!

How do we acquire your native project token and why is it important to hold it from an investment point of view?

[Subash Gautam]

You can acquire ZBC token by participating in our public sale, which is happening very soon, in fact from March 03, 2022. From an investment point of view, it's important to hold the ZBC token because it is a deflationary token that will have utility as well as can be used for governance in the future of Zebec DAO.

[May]

What are the 2021 highlights from Zebec and what should we look forward to this year?

[Subash Gautam]

Last year we were focused on getting our product lines on the mainnet and raising funds to support the ecosystem. We were able to raise $21m in funds with support from top investment firms such as Solana Ventures, DST, and Circle.

This year, we'll be focusing on growth; users; partnerships, and launching all of our products on mainnet.

[May]

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Congratulations on your fundraiser

[Subash Gautam]

thank you

[May]

You’re welcome

It’s now time to take Twitter questions from our inquisitive community

Ready?

[Subash Gautam]

yes

Segment 2 - Twitter Questions

[May]

Zebec says this expansion follows the company's launch and its $6 million funding injection from investors including Republic Capital, Shima Capital, and Breyer Capital. How promising is Zebec, so that these important firms, not only, put their trust, but also their investments?

Twitter Username: @y1sus_afp

[Subash Gautam]

So far we have received amazing responses from investors. One of the reasons such big names are trusting us is because Zebec aims to take blockchain technology to the masses through products such as crypto payroll. Now we have the support, we're very much committed to fulfilling our promises.

[May]

Nice!

I understand that Zebec is a continuous settlement protocol in Solana, but do you really only plan to stay in this network because of its great speed and speed? Or do you also have in mind to expand to EVM networks to have a greater reach?

Twitter Username: @AugustK95

[Subash Gautam]

Yes, we have plans to expand to EVM networks as well.

[May]

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Hi Zebec Team! Heard about your private fundraising round and then your whitelist announcement! Can you please share details with us on how to participate? And do we in the DC community count as early members? Haha

Twitter Username: @theyasflower

[Subash Gautam]

Thank you. You can join the whitelist through our website zebec.io. Yes, you'll be counted as early members.

[May]

That’s good to know!

I read on their website the following: "withdraw balance

Convert your Zebec balance into real-world cash", honestly I think this is great because they shorten annoying processes with intermediaries, but they charge some considerable fee for doing it or not at all?

Twitter Username: @Pirry05Universe

[Subash Gautam]

Yeah. We've fees but the fees are very minimal, 0.25% of every transaction. That is 25 cents ($0.25) for a transaction of $100.

[May]

This is a good figure!

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Treasury management is a very important feature, especially for DAOs. We know how it almost crashed Ethereum. What is Zebec creating to provide an extra layer of security for Treasury Management on Solana?

Twitter Username: @TadesCorner

[Subash Gautam]

Indeed. Firstly, we have increased the security of our programs and have them audited by two top security firms. Second, one of the exciting things we're doing with treasury is that through Zebec, companies can transfer funds from treasury on a per-second basis, enabling liquidity all the time.

[May]

Great answers!

Let’s quickly move to the next segment where we take questions from our live audience.

In this 3rd segment, I will open the group for some seconds for the live community to shoot you some pressing questions.

Please pick five original questions to answer.

Try to ignore generic, vague, and copy-paste questions 😊

Dear community, as a measure to deter bots and reward hunters, please include the word SOLANA in your questions so the guest can tell original questions apart!

😌

The group will be unmuted now.

Let’s go!

---Chat was then opened for the live community to send in their questions---

Segment 3 - Live Questions

[May]

Dear guest, as a measure to deter bots and reward hunters, the word SOLANA has been included in the questions so you can tell original questions apart!

Please prioritize such questions 🙂

You can go ahead to pick good questions now.

[Subash Gautam]

Great

[Topind]

SOLANA

1. What impact does Zebec Pay have on token productivity?

2. What's your plan to revolutionize the financial system?

[Subash Gautam]

We'll be introducing inflationary rewards for users using Zebec Pay. That's one way how ZBC tokens will be circulated in the market. This is Zebec Pay's relation to token productivity.

We plan to revolutionize the financial system by introducing borderless payment and direct exchange of crypto into cash through our debit cards at a very low rate.

[hmmmm🍷🍷🍷]

SOLANA

I saw in Zebec that there was a custom debit card. Can this custom debit card be used in all countries? And is this custom debit card suitable for a new cryptocurrency user like me?

[Subash Gautam]

Yes, our custom debit card can be used in most countries in the world.

[May]

Dear guest, please keep the answers coming 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

[ELizabeth]

SOLANA

I want to. discuss streaming on zebec. whether all platforms like YouTube. Can Instagram or TikTok be used for streaming? or is there a special platform? If no one watches the stream, will the person who streams still earn money?

[Subash Gautam]

Please don't be confused. Zebec is not enabling video streaming. Zebec is enabling the streaming of payments.

[Feray furnense]

SOLANA

Are developers permitted to apply and if yes where can one reach out to??

What would also be the APY for your yield farming??

[Subash Gautam]

Yes, we welcome developers from all around the world to contribute and to develop products on top of the Zebec Protocol.

[Titanium]

You have rightly mentioned that Zebec is more than just sending and receiving money. , Can You please tell me what great stuff you guys are Building here and what makes you superior?

Solana

[Subash Gautam]

On top of streaming payments, we are also building products such as Zebec Multisig, Zebec Payroll, and Zebec Automated Dollar Cost Averaging.

[May]

Can you please take one more? :)

[Subash Gautam]

Sure

[May]

[Vicky Jones]

When you start transmitting the money to the recipient's wallet. How long does the transfer process take? Is there any chance that the money will not reach the account? How secure can people feel about transferring their digital assets from Zebec?

SOLANA

[Subash Gautam]

It depends on the length of streaming, but transactions happen every second. There is no chance that the money won't reach the recipient account because our smart contract automatically executes transactions on the blockchain.

[May]

Aaaannddd it’s a wrap!

Such a concise yet detailed interview! Too impressive!
