Let’s Chat With Yash Now

Jereme/Will: What are you building at Shardeum?

Yash: When Shardeum was first announced, we were a small team, and I was responsible for building our community through all the channels possible. I focused on connecting with people and making sure Shardeum’s message was clear to everyone. As the team and the community grew, my role shifted mainly to growing our online presence. With the support of my team, contributors & community members, Shardeum’s communities have now become some of the biggest and most active ones out there. Whether it’s the Shardeum’s community channels, or the Leagues building on Shardeum, our community has come a long way, and we continue to grow and strengthen it.

Jereme/Will: What sets Shardeum and its Community apart?

Yash: Beyond the tech, what I really love about Shardeum is the strong culture we’ve built in the last 20 months. Our community is always ready to help and support each other. We wanted Shardeum to have a natural community feel without any official control, and I think the friendly and helpful culture we have now makes us stand out.

Jereme/Will: How can our community members uplift Shardeum?

Yash: The community has been a big part of Shardeum from the start. At Shardeum, we say “the community is the CEO,” and we really mean it. They’ve helped in many ways, like making the logo, starting community channels, organizing events in different countries, and giving feedback on our tech. Now that we’re getting ready to launch the mainnet for Shardeum’s network, I think the community should come together to make sure it’s a big success and prepare for more big things ahead.

Jereme/Will: What was your journey into Web3?

Yash: I read about Bitcoin in 2019 and put a lot of money into it. But the value went down, and I lost money. This made me want to learn more about this industry. I got really interested in Web3 and felt it was going to be big. So, I left my studies to work full-time in this area.

At first, I joined some projects that didn’t turn out well, and I made some mistakes. 🙏

But when Nischal announced Shardeum, I knew what was coming . I’ve been here for 18 months now and things have been just growing ever since.
