Our team has prepared 3 questions for you to start with: Let`s start with the introduction ! Q1: Can you introduce yourself to our community?
Of course, I am the CEO and Chief Architect of StackOS, and have a background in engineering and have a patent in cryogenic engines. Have 2 masters degree, one in International Business and second one in Finance from Harvard University. My background experience has been focussed in could engineering (DevSecOps) and have build products and services which are cloud native and migrated really large organizations from datacentres to cloud.... We have been building a product called Integro which was a decentralized learning management system which used blockchain to provide micro scholarships... but the infrastructure was centralized so we were building a product to solve our own problem of centralized infrastructure, and this solution is now called StackOS.

thank you Vishnu Q2: Can you introduce StackOS to us?
StackOS is a cross chain open infrastructure protocol that allows individuals to collectively offer a decentralized cloud where you can deploy any full-stack application, decentralized app, blockchain privatenets and mainnet nodes. The main objective of StackOS is to have a decentralized infrastructure for any application in the world. As a byproduct, we have created a system to have the revenue earned by these giant organizations like (AWS, Azure, GCP) spread out to the community as a whole. To make this successful, we have invested in making a blockchain project...not like a blockchain! UX has been the key focus.

👍👍👍👍 Q3: Let`s now talk about the milestones you have achieved so far and about your upcoming plans?
Yeah absolutely! So what really distinguishes us from anyone else is, we have been working for over 3 years on StackOS, and its a very difficult problem to solve. After years of sleepless nights we have been able to crack the solution to this. Mid last year, we built out the solution for the Infra Mesh, the infrastructure that is used to run any application in the world (any traditional, or blockchain nodes) In the december last year, we proved the functioning of the Becaon Node --> the protection mecanism for the infra mesh 2 months back we partnered with Chainlink, and are one of the few partners who have opend the solution of Decentralized DNS orcle service, which now Chainlink offers to the entire blockchain community. last month we opened the soft lauch of the StackOS on testnet, and we had over 1000 application deployed in just few hours. 🙂 Its only after we were conviced that we can actually get to mainnet we started to raise funds.... we did not want to raise money based on an idea or just on a whitepaper. We are a responsible and a seasoned team... 🙂 We are currently over subscribed, and have some very high value investors backing us! Hope this gives a basic idea 🙂 but there is a lot more....

Kudos to the StackOS team for providing us with such a wonderful and novel solution. Three years working on the decentralized cloud protocol isn't an easy task I must say. Could you tell us some of the problems/difficulties you encountered while working on StackOS? Did you guys think of giving up at a time due to the challenges you encountered or you were very optimistic right from the start? Kindly share your thoughts and experiences with us
Thank you very much, @Abisola1 ! Life is tough, and we learn along the way... we made mistakes, and we learnt from them. One thing that we have learnt is that user experience is the key to success, we didnt focus on it initially... we were writing APIs, its only when we learnt from our community that if we cant provide a great user experience we cant get adoption. and we have tried to solve this 🙂 We as an origanization solve problems that dont have solutions, unlike many teams that build a solution and them try to fit them in a use case. So we have made several technical decisions and revised them, with the focus on problem. so while we were optimistic that one way or the other wee will get there 🙂 we are a positive team!

on the website written StackOS provides Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI / CD) circuits, what are these circuits like? What are the advantages of having this chain for blockchain developers? give us some of the advantages of the series.
Hi @agathabri ! Any developer experince needs a CI/CD taken care of by default, its only then, developers stop focussing on infrastructure and focus on product development.

I think in order for you to grow, your decentralized cloud needs both compute resource providers and those that will deploying nodes. What mechanism has the team put in place to help reward the various parties involved in the StackOS protocol? I'm aware that the $STACK tokens are intertwined in the StackOS ecosystem, if you don't mind telling us the role it plays and benefits of having it as a holder?
Great question @kunlefighter ! Yes StackOS ecosystem is a 2 sided marketplace, one from developrs and other from the infrastructure providers. There are honestly a lot of utilities of using the $STACK token, but to give a one or two sentences. 1) you need to stake STACK tokens to be able to launch a node (and running these nodes generate revenue) 2) It is needed to genetrate NFTs for the application marketplace 3) We have built an ecosytem where any user in the community can draw the compute from the cloud providers (like AWS, GCP) and add that to the StackOS ecosystem. This is going to be as easy as a click on a button. 🙂

There are other competitors like IBM Cloud, Azure, and others in the field of decentralized cloud and they have really done their best for the space. What has StackOS innovated to contribute and complement what they have done? And as a decentralized cloud network, what really differentiates you from a centralized cloud network?
Hey @K2ice , do you remeber just 2 years back, no matter which reagion you deployed to, and anyone who used AWS S3 was shut down? Its centralized if its a single entity running it... Also any one of these entities can block their cloud service to their customers (its not censorship resistant) .., this again happned in January this year midst the US politics. Again its centralized 🙂

Can users run their private testnet on StackOS if they want to test their DApp privately? What are the advantages of StackOS in supporting multiple blockchain protocols?
Yes they can, we also provide them now in our own testnet.... did I mention that our entire StackOS platform is deployed on itself? we are using our own protocol to provide the protocol 🙂 You cant tie yourself to one blockchain and hope that you will get adoption, hence cross chain. the future is in interoperability...

What is StackOS long-term vision about the industry which you are working on? Are you afraid some day there will be another project with more innovative technology can replace your project?
No we are not afraid 🙂 we have been working on it for 3 years... but whats unique is, we are a protocol, not a cloud privider, anyone can build on our protocol.... their own nodes and earn revenue from it. while cloud providers have something to worry about not the oes who are building a protocol..

What can StackOS offer to solve the scaling problem? And how does StackOS deal with the threat of centralization?
we leverage the centralized services to decentralize the deployments.... Also, I mentined on an earlier response, anyone in the community can click a button to deploy a node on the AWS, GCP etc.... so it in not possible to centralize. 🙂 there is an arbitrage opportunity, and no one has to be tech savy to do it....

What is your strongest advantage that you think will make your team leading the market? In contrast, what is your weakness? How do you plan to overcome it?
we are inherently protected with the Beacon Nodes, and we dont compete with AWS, GCP or Azure 🙂 we use them to become more decentralized.... and ofcourse we are a protcol, not a product that needs to defend. In the future we see all these cloud providers to support our opensource solution to make deployments easier and censirship resistent. We value our partners and their partnership, we were originally going to build our own decentralized DNS oracle service, and then decided to use Chainlink instead (contibute to them) and open their ecosystem to the larger audiance while also solving our use case.

Stack os is an open source that was designed to be deployed on Decentralized clouds, but apart of it, , the stack os can the deployed in other ways ?
yes it is being designed to deploy on Datacentres and local hardwares. We are doing AMAs here 🙂 just as an example.... I invite you to join us and see our demonstration video, and I assure you in no time you will be running wordpress apps on StackOS and refering us to other developers. But unlike the central cloud providers the value generated in the StackOS ecosystem goes to the community instead of the shareholders of the community !!

Q1. In one of your recent publish medium ama_articles, i saw that Andrey Shirben, which is one of your seed investor is joining you as an advisor. What makes you think Andrey is the best man for the job? Q2. Are you optimistic that he will use his vast experience to help StackOS in disrupting the traditional cloud provider’s space with StackOS’s decentralized cloud protocol?
The only reason we have him onboard is becuase he is going to add value, and likewise, the only reason he decided to join us is beucase he knows he can add value... its a two way relationship 🙂 i encourage you to see his profile, and that will tell you why he is the best one to be on our advisory board.

🍀Applications in StackOS seems really great, Does we need to pay to user your services? is there any requerement to develop apps at StackOs?
Thank you! it appers that you have either deployed application on StackOS or have seen the demonstration video 🙂 Developers can pay for the resources by staking and commiting any crypto currency, but the transactions within the network happen with $STACK tokens... There are no special requirements, any application in the world can be packaged into a docker imnage and run on StackOS... thats what makes StackOS so powerful... its not just a solution for blockchain companies but its StackOS will see adoption from the whole wide world 🙂

On Twitter StackOS talks about DDos attacks, can you explain what a DDoS attack is? and the StackOS application is protected by Beacon Nodes, can you explain about this protection system?
DDos is distributed denial of service attacks... which means that people can bring the service down by making garbage requests..... Beacon nodes are a layer that is designed to handle those issues without affecting the infra mesh (where actual applications run) We will not be releasing any contract or our token without it being audited.... we are partnered with a very reputed audit firm 🙂 please wait for the announcement to happen !

What other benefits does StackOS offers blockchain developers asides anonymity, What about speed, cost effectiveness, security and the rest, Can you guarantee that as well?
There is a wonderful medium post that we have made around the problems StackOS solves when compared with the centralized cloud providers. If you ping me afterwards, I can point you to it....
