Meet the Boss – Exclusive Interview with e-Chat CMO Edwin Dearborn

e-chat CMO interview

Lately an application named e-Chat appeared in the center of attention of users from different corners of the world as well as reputable publishers and those who are interested in digital technologies.

Being a decentralized anonymous instant messenger with a built-in multicurrency crypto wallet, high-quality content, and opportunities of earning money, e-Chat is seen as the main contender for becoming an App of the future.

This unique tool fulfills all major social and financial needs of users. Having advanced functionality and being easy to use, e-Chat has some weighty advantages among hundreds of other apps as it offers the users:

  • Various formats of conversation (messages, voice and video calls);
  • Instant transfers of fiat and digital money and other operations (exchange, etc.);
  • Anonymity of all data;
  • User-friendly interface;
  • The highest level of security.

All of these has been combined in one tool due to the blockchain, IPFS and P2P technologies, the best encryption protocol MTProto and so on.

The e-Chat team has created a convenient and time-saving decision that is intended to change the life of millions of people to the better by solving their problems fast and fully.

We recently sat down with Edwin Dearborn, Chief Marketing Officer at e-CHAT to have a chat with him about the project as well as finding out his thoughts and insights.

Hi, Edwin. Thanks for joining us today. Can you tell us more about yourself?

Sure, right now, I’m working simultaneously on two projects, e-Chat, and Lead Systems, managing the positions of CMO and CEO accordingly. I have been in the field of traditional and digital marketing for over than two decades. Moreover, I’m the author of a couple of courses that I continue running for businessmen and entrepreneurs. The amount of people I’ve nourished in the sphere of marketing is impressive and I’m not even planning to stop over. I’m confident that my experience and professional insights could help many businesses and people.

First off, why did you decide to use the Blockchain technology in building e-Chat? What was your thought process behind it?

I’ve been working on projects based on Blockchain for quite long already and I value its transparency and the fact that the altering or tampering of any units of information is not possible, well, if you don’t have a huge amount of computing power to override the whole network. There are no possibilities for any third party or the central authority to interfere with the peer-to-peer transactions. What exactly it means for e-Chat: security, the democratization of the communication channel through its decentralization and elimination of any kind of allegations.

Tell us about how you came up with the idea of e-Chat. Did you face a problem within the industry or do you think there is a gap in the market for e-Chat to fill?

Definitely, there is a huge gap, that hasn’t been fulfilled for years because all the popular messengers we know represent the centralized infrastructure and it means that they could be easily manipulated from the side of authoritative parties. At e-Chat we decided to change that pattern, we want free and unbiased communication for everyone no matter what country the user is from. The Blockchain technology provides e-Chat with stable operation even if some countries ran out of power or lift bans on the access to the instant messaging clients, we will still work and enable the exchange of data.

What do you think is the biggest problem e-Chat will solve and why is the problem important to solve?

The other issue that e-Chat is solving is the connection of two huge spheres: social and financial. We managed to introduce the multi-currency cryptowallet in our messaging platform that facilitates all financial transactions. At e-Chat anyone can send money absolutely instantly within a text message or through the cryptolike, a unique feature e-Chat is offering to its users. I deeply believe that that’s exactly what our users need because we provide the safest way to store the assets, communicate with each other and even earn online.

Let’s talk about security. What security systems do you have in place in e-Chat; can you tell some of that to us as well as the technology behind it?

First of all, the security of communication and financial transactions are based on the Blockchain characteristics. Moreover, we have also introduced proof-of-replication and proof-of-spacetime consensus. Secondly, we guarantee the privacy by using the MTProto encryption protocol, P2P, and IPFS protocol.

What has been your happiest moment so far working on e-Chat? On the flipside, what has been the most painful, or perhaps the most regretful decision you’ve made with e-Chat?

It’s a great piece of luck to manage such an awesome project as e-Chat together with the real team of professionals. Concerning your other question, I think it’s quite early to draw any conclusions because the work on the project is still in full swing! The time will show.  

Tell us more about the e-Chat Token.

At e-Chat, we did everything to provide the stable growth of ECHT, e-Chat token. Those who are following the news of the project and the ICOs we are running since November would notice that with every new round the price is increasing. This tendency is based on the growth of users amount, content generation and the speed the memory allocated to users is filled. This will cause the growth of tokens supply, because even a symbolic number of ECHT used to increase the memory storage with the respect to the millions of users worldwide, will influence the exchange rate of ECHT significantly. The other aspect is that the tokens used to purchase the eternal memory within e-Chat are burning out. In the long-term perspective, it leads to deflation and the decrease of the token amount in turnover. Everyone knows that if something exists in the limited amount, plus, if this limited number has a slight tendency of decreasing, then the price for the goods, in our case e-Chat tokens will sooner or later grow. Guys, these are the universal laws of the economy!   

What do you think is the biggest challenge or obstacle e-Chat will face? How do you plan to tackle that challenge?

One can never gain anything great without overcoming difficulties, especially if your goal is to change the world. Anyway, if you work hand in hand with the team of professionals, you realize that anything is within your depth. Right now, the most important is to run our project successfully to provide millions of people worldwide with the opportunity to get the new and highly-effective way of communication. e-Chat evokes the creativity in our users because they know that the content produced could bring them monetary support. Anyone could take on the role of celebrity and receive thousands of cryptolikes under their posts.

Moving on to more personal stuff, what does a typical day in your life look like?

Life is too short to stay idle that’s why I’m always trying to make the best of my day and always learn something new. I’m trying to keep abreast of the times and always find some time for self-development. Every day I keep up with the latest trends and news from the world of marketing and leadership practices and methodologies. Moreover, I’m advising and consulting various digital and legacy businesses bringing my clients closer to their goals. My biggest goal in life is make marketing as creative as it could be to stand the test of time.

Can you express one personal opinion of yours about the blockchain? It doesn’t matter if it’s negative or positive, we just want to hear your thoughts on it.

Blockchain brings the alternative to the modern world. The society receives a true freedom of choice, isn’t that the most important and valuable asset?

Finally, what other personal goals (besides your career) do you have in life? Is there anything else in life you want to achieve?

The most important for me is to have dreams in my life. They are moving me forward. There is no worth being scared of changes or anything else in the world. While we are still breathing, we should be dream bold!
