Harsch Khandelwal
Harsch Khandelwal
In terms of background I am an engineer from the University of Waterloo (where Vitalik went) and an MBA from The Richard IVey School of Business. I sold my first startup stright out of my undergrad to the largest manufacturer of aerospace parts in the US (privately owned) and have build and managed many businesses in diverse industries since. UREEQA is the most exciting venture I've been in because of the vision. Protecting the works that bind us together as people. Music, movies, photos, books and more.
Harsch Khandelwal

My whole career has been in Biz Dev, with the last 14 years working for a Big 4 Accounting firm both in Toronto Canada and Boston, MA. This has been an amazing opportunity to work in the crypto field as it is a 180 from my time at KPMG. The great thing is that is that it has allowed me to harness my contacts and experience to help bring UREEQA to the next level with Harsch and Rob

Superb! Thank you for such informatibe introduction let's move onto the UREEQA Q2: Can you introduce UREEQA to us?
UREEQA is a platform for Creators to protect, manage and monetize their work. We are the only fully integrated platform from Creator -> Creation -> IP Protection -> Monetization (eg NFTs) Validators on our platform work for our URQA token to help answer questions about the authorship, ownership and originality of works to be Validated. This allows us to use our Responsible Minting technology to mint NFTs backed by a public and robust Package of Proof like this: https://app.ureeqa.com/package-of-proof/387c1002-89c7-4d6d-8b4f-1abc62bd81e7 That was prepared for The Trey Mancini Foundation. Not sure if you saw him hit at the Home Run Derby during All Star week last night. Our vision is to tackle both IP Protection (starting with copyright / creative work but growing to include patents, trademarks and industrial designs) and monetization (starting with NFTs but growing into DeFi like IP Collateralization)

Everyday is a milestone for us at UREEQA. Honestly, I have never in my whole career seen this much activity, especially in a startup, and I used to coach startup businesses in another career The amount of activity, awareness, interest and the statement, "...I didn't know you did that..." is incredible

Early 2020 idea was conceptualized. We then built a transparent and experienced team with the core Founding members including an engineering gold medalist from the same university Vitalik Buterin went to, the person voted Canadian Lawyer of the year (2021), an accountant with senior management experience at multiple multi-national firms and a seasoned manager with 2 decades of experience at a Global Fortune 10 company. We are also building a killer Advisory Board with top Hollywood agents, folks from the music industry and more. TGE was Mar 31, 2021 Launched Closed Beta on that same day with both famous and budding creators. We even signed up the Ministry of Education from the Republic of Cyprus Public MVP launched Jun 30 We sold our internally developed NFTs to honor our avid community members with the first Crypto Kong Qard selling for $7K. Last night we launched NFTs for Trey Mancini who missed the entire last season with the Baltimore Orioles battling stage 3 colon cancer. Not sure if you saw but he did great and ended in 2nd place overall. You can still get one of his NFTs and support cancer research here: https://ureeqa-staging-website.netlify.app/marketplace/collection/ca1762e0-44b1-4614-8962-7d74ea62eff2 Rakan is with us and has been building a healthy pipeline of business. Now that we've put the Marketplace through its paces, we are ready to load up some exciting campaigns. We are also working with Creators in our Public MVP and providing free level 1 protection for all works uploaded. With or without UREEQA they have proof on-chain that their work was uploaded on a specific date. As we continue evolving bot IP Protection and Monetization sides of our business we will get into DeFi applications like IP Collateralization. Lots ahead.

I could read that creators can choose to have UREEQA validate their creations, but does that mean that I can create the collectible on any other platform and I can validate it with UREEQA without problem? or to validate it, do I have to create it on your platform?
Our smart contract that mints the Collectibles stores information on-chain related to the proof of Validation. However, you are free to sell on an open marketplace like OpenSea like BK The Artist did: https://opensea.io/assets/0x86918d2860400226b486b365d91e489270fb1f55/3

UEEQA is a platform for Content Creators to protect, manage and monetize their work. we know this, but how can content creators benefit from this service safely and easily, what do you offer them differently?
One other way that Content Creators can benefit is that less-well known creators will be sharing our platform with very high profile creators and being part of the UREEQA community can facilitate introductions, advice etc.

I could read that they will accept the main credit cards as a means of payment, but really if they are focusing on a product that is totally DeFi, why accept as a means of payment assets of centralized finance?
Although the ethos of blockchain is woven through the fabric of our platform, our system has been designed end-to-end to be used by crypto folks and nocoiners alike. There are a LOT more people who don't know about crypto yet want their work protected and monetized and even want to own their first NFT with credit card. We cater to all users.

Hello Sir 💁🖐️ How can Creators choose to have UREEQA validate their creations??.. You say This is done using the solution "UREEQA's unique technology" and a global network of skilled Validators. Can you tell us what unique technology makes investors join your project? What makes UREEQA different from other similar platforms?
Currently no one is asking questions about the source creative work (in NFTs) like: Who Created It? Who Owns It? Is it Original? These are the questions we answer during our Validation process. You can see an example here: https://app.ureeqa.com/package-of-proof/387c1002-89c7-4d6d-8b4f-1abc62bd81e7 To our knowledge no other platform is performing such rigorous tests on the work and providing this much transparency and peace of mind for buyers

Are you planning to bring in non-crypto investors to your project? Because the project's success was based on attracting additional investors who were previously unaware of the cryptocurrency sector. What are your goals for non-crypto space awareness?
That is one of the greatest things about UREEQA - "nocoiners" are welcome, both as users AND investors. You can have an end-to-end experience on UREEQA without knowing anything about crypto. Our current investors are a mix of "traditional" and crypto-focused investors. One thing you can do is look at our Founders and Leadership team - we all have traditional Business backgrounds.

We want people who believe in what we are doing and understand the platform we have created truly is a game changer. It took Harsch 30 mins to convince me to leave a 14 year career at KPMG to come to URQA. We are not looking for people who want a quick hit, we are looking for people to become ambassadors of change and push out our message. What we have in the pipeline wrt opps and what we are looking to build in the areas such as our publishing administration practice is ground breaking. We have brought on people who are specialists in their fields we are working collectively to launch this company to new heights

I am very interested in the Trey Mancini NFTs on Ureeqa He is my favourite Baltimore Baseman and I was following up on his cancer treatment. He is a brave fighter. How do I get his NFTs ? I heard it is an auction and I wouldn't want to miss out, can I participate ? Do you have a detail/ outline of the NFTs sale process ? I also read that there are rewards for successful purchase, is this true ?
You can go to his Collection here: https://ureeqa.com/marketplace/collection/ca1762e0-44b1-4614-8962-7d74ea62eff2 The gold edition NFT will come with his game kit (hat, shirt, gloves and cleats) that he used last night during the Home Run Derby 1 in 5 silver edition items ($195 each) will be drawn for additional prizes like signed items by Mancini

Creators face a lot of issues which includes bureaucracies, third party infringement, and so on. And these issues are more existence in developing countries. How can UREEQA help to solve these issues for creators?
Bureaucracy is one of the main reasons we started UREEQA! We think that it is unacceptable that getting copyright protection through traditional channels like public agencies takes weeks to months and relies on "paper documents" for the most part. At Ureeqa, we offer superior protection and we take only a few days. One of the other core reasons we started UREEQA was to make protection accessible to EVERYON EVERYWHERE - particularly in "less developed" countries.

Trey is a stage 3 colon cancer survivor who missed the 2020 MLB season to battle his disease. He created a Foundation to raise money and awareness for colorectal cancer research and another charity feeding the needy children in the Baltimore community. We were approached to help launch his NFT campaign in conjunction with the All Star MLB HR Derby last night where all proceeds from the sales of his two NFTs will go to his foundation in support of those two charities. We had tons of media/press. Even Mark Cuban posted it on his IG page. What normally takes 3-4 weeks to pull off, UREEQA did it in 8 days. Unreal what our team was able to accomplish.

The space is very fragmented and no one knows how it'll shake out. However, we are not an NFT first company. We are an IP Protection and Monetization company. NFTs happen to be one way to monetize. There will be other ways. When you compare our Marketplace to those, we stand out in these ways: - Accept credit card and crypto as payment (so we can tap into existing fans) - All items backed by a robust and public Package of Proof for the source creative work like this: https://app.ureeqa.com/package-of-proof/387c1002-89c7-4d6d-8b4f-1abc62bd81e7 - All utility offered with the NFT hashed on-chain so you can prove your rights With these we cover the three main risks when buying NFTs: Authenticity, Copyright and Redeemability

One of these is that we operate UREEQA strictly "by the books" to comply with legal and financial regulations from bodies like the SEC in the US.

Please, can you explain briefly the difference between Validators and Protectors within the Ureeqa ecosystem in terms of the roles that each play? How does Ureeqa rate the actions of Validators to determine the most reliable as well as the least reliable validator?
Validators assess creative work for authenticity and originality. Protectors are out there ensuring creative work is not fraudulently created. Our validators go through an interview process, are tested for their capabilities to determine their ability to produce. Our validation process is tiered in that once a validator submits their results on a piece of creative work, it is assessed by a committee to ensure accuracy. If the committee gives it their stamp, the validation goes through. If it appears the validation is inaccurate, it will not go through and the validator is penalized. It could also lead to termination. This is our bread and butter and our room for error is very, very slim.

Can you explain a bit about how sponsorship works? I'm confused to learn it. For example, if I create a digital painting and I send it to the market, how will the sponsorship affect me? thank you
Great question Daisy! What we've found is that many Creators want their work Validated but can't pay the fee. Sponsorship allows UREEQA or our community to pay for the Validation in exchange for a custom item (eg NFT of the item), UREEQA Reward Points (that can be used to buy items in our Vault) and recognition on your Package of Proof that we sponsored it

We self-funded to start and then did a fully compliant "raise" that included fiat investment from traditional investors. Many of the high profile creators that we work with have little to no knowledge about crypto - that's another benefit of UREEQA - we advise and our clients as well.

🌼 Could you explain what the concept of Responsible Mining is about? Are you the first to implement it? I would also like to know how this influences the final cost of an NFT? Does it make it more valuable?
We've Trademarked the term Responsible Minting. We mint NFTs using our Responsible Minting Technology. This means that unlike any other NFTs, ours are only minted once there is a Master Validated NFT backed by a robust and public Package of Proof like this: https://app.ureeqa.com/package-of-proof/387c1002-89c7-4d6d-8b4f-1abc62bd81e7 This allows buyers to purchase with confidence and Creators, celebrities and brands to keep their fans safe.

NFTs are a great opportunity for companies & brands to engage with their customers, but security is the main threats. Most of the company can't provide enough security. So what UREEQA has that can give confidence to the companies & brands to engage with their customers without any fear?
This is a great point. One might argue that if someone really wants to steal your work, they can. However, one difference with UREEQA is that we "arm" our clients with a "compelling Package of Proof" that enables them to powerfully demonstrate their connection to the work. So, for example, if you find you work infringed upon and take the infringer to court, a UREEQA client will have that "knockout blow".

The NFT market has grown significantly over the past years since 2017 as we are currently witnessing a surge in interest focused on various aspects such as designing, trading e.t.c. However, the current state of the NFT market has limitations that hinder its use cases and market reach. And there is also a powerful opportunity in NFTs yet to be tapped. How will UREEQA work on these limitations that hinders the use cases and market reach of NFTs? And what strategies will be used to worm into the powerful opportunities in the NFT market which is yet to be tapped by other competitors?
We are working continuously to add value to this NFT craze. The FAD is the creation and selling of a digital asset. The current phase we are focusing on is the physical experience. Merging the digital with the physical, ensuring consumers are receiving a utility based NFT purchase to be able to engage with the creator. We are also looking at ways to take current archaic platforms (publishing administration organizations as an example) and building out a business model that will actually allow musical artists to see more of the royalty revenues they should be seeing. NFTs are the future as was the Internet when it was first launched. Who knew what we were capable of when the Internet first came out. There is no ceiling at this point for us in this space.

What is the purpose of the "UREEQA Supreme Council"? when is the right time to join? and how? are there certain conditions?
The UREEQA GRAND COUNCIL (or the UGC) comes with top tier benefits as the elite members are stakeholders and vital to our internal dialogue around business direction. It’s only for those holding 100,000 or more URQA tokens. The UGC will communicate with each via an exclusive Telegram group but also have direct access to the UREEQA’s Leadership team. They’ll be able to gain early access to business developments (NDAs may apply). Basically, they’ll have a platform to provide input and insight to help shape our decisions and represent the interests of Stakeholders. In the future, they’ll also have access to exclusive events and promotions. URQA is priced lower than it may be in the future. Now could be a great time to get in on the ground floor as it could never again be this cheap to access the UGC. Our entire tier system has the UGC at the top. Below them are several other tiers, each with different accesses, privileges and discounts. The higher tiers get early and exclusive access to privileges and royalties. This is all exclusive for you folks. We’ve never discussed this publicly before. It’s not even on the website yet. Our team will make announcements on our channels at the right time. You may have noticed our Community Qard release in our Marketplace. Another way to make it on the UGC is to collect a set of Qards.

Criteria are primarily based on speed and quality of work. Higher scores could give you early access to Validation opportunities or to more sensitive Validations (like for celebrities)

How long should those who want to staking with UREEQA run their URQA tokens in their staking pools, minimum and maximum? What are the APY rates we can get according to the staking period?
These were the 3 pools we ran: https://www.ureeqa.com/tokenholders Click Staking Rewards to see the APYs. These are full but we will have more soon

This is an interesting question. When most people in crypto ask about "community" they are usually referring to a Telegram group or something similar. That has been an important part of building our following and getting the right information to interested folks. They have been a HUGE support for us and a source of great ideas. We also have other "communities". Our Founders and Leadership bring with them all of our "personal networks" that we've built up over many years - that has given us access to some very powerful and influential people. We also now have a fantastic network of high profile Creators...and let's not forget about our amazing partners, the latest is crypto power house Chainlink https://chain.link/ Now - imagine bringing all those communities TOGETHER!
