The Ferrum Network With Ian Friend

The Ferrum Network With Ian Friend

By Scott Cunningham | Crypto & Things | 31 Aug 2020


I’ve seen a lot of projects partnering with the Ferrum Network to setup staking lately so I reached out to Ian Friend from Ferrum Network who is the co-founder and COO there. We discussed Ferrum, DeFi, staking, and much more. Tune in to learn what it’s all about.

Ferrum Network, designed by a distributed systems expert with over ten years experience at the world’s biggest tech companies, was built to address two fundamental problems impeding the mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies: slow transaction speeds and the lack of interoperability between networks.

Instead of building a standalone network, Ferrum Network leverages the values of existing blockchains and connects them to a high-speed transaction layer that enables peer-to-peer transactions of any digital asset.

These are some of the questions we went over:

  • Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
  • How and when did you originally get into cryptocurrency
  • Can you give us a brief introduction to Ferrum Network?
  • What problem does Ferrum Network solve?
  • How is Ferrum involved in DeFi?
  • How does Ferrum network staking work?
  • How did Ferrum Network get its name and what was the original idea or motivation to start it?
  • What are the next big updates for Ferrum Network to release soon or that are in the works?
  • Where does Ferrum Network fit in with other existing similar projects?
  • Where do you see Ferrum Network going in the next year? The next 5 years?
  • If any crypto influencer could join Ferrum Network who would you choose?
  • So where can everyone go to learn more about this?
