Mārtiņš Liberts:
Hello, everyone. My name is Mārtiņš. I’m co-founder of Debitum Network. Here with me today is Märt Lume.

Märt Lume:
Hello.

Mārtiņš Liberts:
Senior product development manager. 2018, it will be a great year for us. We will start doing our product development based on Round A that we did in last year. We raised more than 1.2 million dollars, so we are good to go for product development. And that’s exactly why I wanted to have a little chat with you, Matt, to discuss product development issues. I think first of all, before we move into more detailed issues, is, why Debitum? What do you like about Debitum Network?

Märt Lume:
I’ve been traveling quite a bit in the last two years and it really has struck me how, as well in around the world and as well as actually more developed societies where markets are supposedly more mature such as Europe, it’s really hard to still give money in a trustworthy way to get loans when you even have a very sound business plan. So it really, it’s kind of inspirational to me that Debitum is trying to create this global network with using modern technologies that’s transparent based on trust that could really be a whole new step to financing. I think that having to build a number of products for this is the most important thing or most exciting thing for me, using all the new technologies.

Mārtiņš Liberts:
Okay. But it’s a very, very large task, actually, and based on our experience in product development, what do you think, what are the main principles?

Märt Lume:
Yeah, of course. As a product manager, I think the key thing is to define the product, of course, and that is, actually, that is a large task that requires input from all the stakeholders in the system, the community, people using it, clients, your own team, all the technical specifications, roadmaps, what’s possible, what’s not, in what order are we going to do things. Defining that and then keeping this vision going, evolving it and communication it at every step is what I would say is the number one priority.

Mārtiņš Liberts:
Okay. I hope you can manage that. I hope we can manage to make product in 2018, but what do you wish, maybe for us as a team, for Debitum Network, for all cryptosociety?

Märt Lume:
Yes. Last year was really crazy with the outlandish ICOs, with all these promises that may or may not come true. I wish that this was the year where people actually started seeing the real application of some of this token-based, decentralized systems, all these ICOs, that some of these would actually come out with the practical solutions that people find real use for. I think Debitum has a real shot at being at the forefront of these companies and I’m leading the way, so to say.

Mārtiņš Liberts:
If you also believe Debitum is worth a shot, then join our crowdsale Round B starting on January 25. If you still need more information about the project, come visit our website at Debitum Network, follow us on social media, or come to our Telegram channel and ask the questions. We’ll give you the answers. Meanwhile, have a happy new year. Bye.

Märt Lume:
Bye bye.
