Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Hi all, great to be here

CryptoDiffer team

Q1: Can you introduce yourself to our community ?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Im Kazim Atilla, born in 1972 in Turkey, and when I was 4 years the family moved to Holland. I grew up and studied there and since 1995 running my own businesses, which has taken me to over 60 countries. 

I was involved in many businesses and sectors, but I was always a huge sports fan and my other passion is entrepreneurship – building things for wider communities. Due that sport and entertainment was a huge influence after my terrible shopping bus accident I had when I was 6 years old, I always wanted to invent something unique in particular to combine sports & entertainment. Thus, IQONIQ was born – a unified engagement platform, which has the power to meet the needs of fans, their Idols, and their clubs, as well catering to the interest of brands.

Q2: Can you briefly tell us what is IQONIQ in 3-5 sentences?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

IQONIQ is a revolutionary all-in-one fan engagement platform for clubs, brands, idols, and, of course – fans. The IQONIQ App boasts a unique loyalty system. With fans being at the center of its activities, IQONIQ rewards its users with truly special experiences. Instead of using multiple app, websites, platforms etc the fans can get all what they need in one single app, whereby they can win amazing prizes, money can’t buy experiences, and much more. 

IQONIQ focus only on brining all sports and entertainment under one roof, which makes it easier for any fan to find exactly what they want in one single place.

Q3: Let`s now talk about the milestones you have achieved so far and about your upcoming plans

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

We got a lot of traction this year. Since we have launched our website late January 2020, we have added over 120 clubs/teams so far, and that all during the terrible covid. We also have established many great partnerships, which all of these shows a great support and believe in our project. We also have over 200 clubs/teams in the pipeline which we have advanced negotiations, or signed heads of terms, or we are in the final stage of contract negotiations.

So as anyone can see, we have all done this in one year, which we are very proud of with our entire team!

When it comes to technology, it’s important to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to tech. With the recent advancements in blockchain technology, we are eager to reward our loyal customers even more. With this in mind, we are updating our tokenomics to give our token holders even more benefits, like earning bonus tokens from holding the IQQ token and receiving unique, tradable digital assets, backed by NFTs.

We want to be the #1 place for the Fans’ needs and wishes, where they can find everything related to their favourite Idols and clubs in one single place and where they also get rewarded of being a loyal fan.

Fans are the key to our success. Our plan is simple: get as many partners on board as possible, get our users excited about this and keep building our community!

There will be more exciting news coming very soon!

CryptoDiffer team

Awesome, a lot of updates to come out!

Thank you for great answers!

I think it is time to start community questions round!

Cryptodiffer Community

Trust is very important in business. So, what makes investors, customers and users feel safe when working with Your project? And how will you get the trust of many users that have negative thoughts about Blockchain and DeFi?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

I like this question, as this doesnt only count for projects in blockchain  and DeFi as you wrote but for any project around the world. 

We have developed a product and a solution for a real problem, and these solutions are different for the 3 target groups, Clubs & Idols / Fans / Brands, as their problems, needs, wishes are different. The market is very fragmented, whereby the fans are all over the world, and on many different apps, websites and platforms, whereby they are also not rewarded being a loyal fan. We have created an All-In-One solution, which now puts the fans as the most important. 

Seperate of the above, we have already the trust of many great partners, from many different sectors. Also anyone can see what we bring to the table, and we dont start with a promise but have a ready to launch great product whereby we have already a great traction with many clubs as mentioned before. 

Many projects have only a business plan, and promise golden mountains, as from our end we are in a massive growth position with our business.

Cryptodiffer Community

I see your project have loyalits Program. How does the Loyalty Platform work ?

Can you elaborate about it?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Yes for sure, its almost like a frequent flying program. So the more you engage in the platform, the more loyalty points you can ear and with the the more chance you will have to win great prizes.

We also will have a worldwide loyalty program with merchants, which will give discounts, promotions, and many more rewards and benefits to our members/users.

Cryptodiffer Community

Do you collaborate with world famous actresses, actors and singers to combine sports, entertainment and social change? Do you have such a plan

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Yes, we are in advanced negotiations within the entertainment sector, and also with many sport idols. We will announce very soon our new partnerships related to this.,

Cryptodiffer Community

DeFi is booming.  Defi is a trend.  This has become a popular issue lately.  Is mahadao just following that trend?  Or are you ready to enter this space?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

MahaDAO is a project that is doing something much different than others 🙂 you can have a look at our website for more info mahadao.com our goal is to lead a new trend or wave in defi which is valuecoins

Cryptodiffer Community

I’m interested in upgrading to premium accounts, so I would like to know how to go about it and the advantages it has over the free one?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

The premium membership will accelerate your benefits within the ecosystem, which is similar to a frequent flying program and credit cards. It allows you to win better prizes, getting more loyalty points for your engagement, getting higher discounts, having access to exclusive OTT footage and much more.

Cryptodiffer Community

Q1 – If i upgrade my free account to premium, what extra benefits and incentives will I activate?

Q2 – How will IQONIQ get rid of the Current social media platform shortcomings for Idols & Fans?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Good questions, and the first one I have answered in my previous comment.

Ref the social media platform shortcomings, this is exactly why IQONIQ is great for the true sport and entertainment fans. The social media paltforms are not build for fan engagement, and also there is so much happening there that you dont know anymore what it exactly is.

If you want to watch online videos then majority will go to Youtube

If you want to book accomodation, majority will use booking.com

If you listen online music, then many will use Spotfiy

As you can see the above are sector based apps, and you can only do the things which are related to one thing, and in IQONIQ’s case we are 100% focusing on all whats related to sport and entertainment.

Cryptodiffer Community

Similar projects have demonstrated that fan tokens can been well received by users. Does IQONIQ plan to do a Fan toke Offering after its token sale? Do you  plan to expand your operation to include NFTs?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

We are giving a real solution to our fans, which is an All-In-One solution, and the tokens are a part of the wider fan ecosystem. You will use our app due that we giving a real solution, and then you will look what other benefits you can get from our tokens and or NFT’s. 

Yes the clubs and Idols will have NFT which the fans can win and or buy to open even more benefits and winning great prizes, more will come ref this very soon.

Cryptodiffer Community

You’re saying that the only ones who can earn the credit are having a truly special experience.  Can you describe what experience it takes to get an award from IQONIQ?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Everyone can earn the loyalty points, which you need to join a contest, but its not necessary that you have to buy tokens to win the prizes. The tokens and the premioum membership will accelerate your benefits, and the prizes which can be won are many too mention here, but it can be from winning VIP tickets, to meet and greet, to an online video game with your favourite Idol, and much more!

Cryptodiffer Community

How does IQONIQ differ from competitor Chiliz in terms of fan-to-Clubs interaction?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

We are TOTALLY different. The market like to compare us, even maybe the people at Chiliz, but we are not even close being the same. They are doing and issuing Club/Fan tokens, and we are focusing ourself on what the needs of the fans are, bringing all their needs which they use via many apps now in one single app. 

So we are totally different, and when you look at our project carefully then you will see that as well.

Cryptodiffer Community

What are the use cases of the IQQ token for football fans in the IQONIQ app? Can they vote to choose a new color for the logo or team uniform?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Again, its not just about the IQQ Token as we are a fan engagement platform for every sport and entertainment fan. Every fan is suing many apps to get what they need from their clubs and idols, and instead of now using so many different apps you only need to use one app, which is IQONIQ. Like I wrote in one of my above comments, why YouTube, Spotify, Booking.com etc works very well, as its sector based and in our case its the same. 

The IQQ tokens will accelerate many benefits inside the platform, like in frequent flying progammes as explained. And yes there might be voting for many different things for your club, which you will see the moment we have launched the app, but its not only related to that alone but much more.

Cryptodiffer Community

How are you going to convince leading sports organizations and teams to integrate into the IQONIQ app? What other companies or projects do you plan to cooperate with in the future?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Nice question, and as mentioned we have over 120 clubs so far and 200 in the pipeline whereby in the beginning we had to do a lot to get them on board whereby now many are calling and or emailing us to join IQONIQ. As mentioned we have developed a real solution for an existing real problem and they see this, which the fans and brands also will see and thats the reason why they will join IQONIQ.

Cryptodiffer Community

Why Iqoniq give bonus token to user who buy in presale?

What is the Purpose of this strategy?

Are you sure bonus token will not impact on token price dumping?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Many companies in many different sectors have done this for many years. You want to give incentive to your first supporters, and we also did this. The bonus tokens will be paid over a time, whereby the first distribution will be after 6 months, and then 6 months later to make sure that it will not impact on the token price dumping as you very well have written. By that time we will have launched our app, grown all over and have added many more partners that the token owners will see all the real benefits of our tokens and by instead of selling them that they will keep holding them

Cryptodiffer Community

How do you rate the support of the IQONIQ community? What’s your marketing and mass adoption strategy? What message would you like to send to the community through the AMA today?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Good question, we have developed a tokenomics which can be globally adopted from day one, as its based on loyatly and rewarding element with the clubs which have joined us. The product is ready, the ecosystem is developed, having over 120 clubs and more to follow. We actually didnt do a full IQONIQ community involvement, and thats what we have started since 1 month. Seperate of this, we are using of course all the channels of our clubs/teams which joined us, their website and dedicated apps, and obvioulsly you will see our brand and engagement in all the stadiums of our partners, which of course has a hughe reach. The reach via our partners is over 15 billion fans, and growing, so as you can see we will build the community with the exisitng fans of our partners who are looking for a great fan engagemnt app which has everything in one single place.

Cryptodiffer Community

What are the main differences between the IQONIQ and other similar platforms? Why is IQONIQ platform better?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

We never talk about why we are better and others are bad as we have respect for every entrepreneur and company which are working hard to build their business.

As mentioned before, we have first identified the target groups, then we have learned about their problems, needs and wishes and have build a solution package for each of them. As you can see we went out to solve an existing problem, and that makes our project very good. Its not about o let me get on board and see what happens, or let me buy this tokens, which maybe goes up etc. Here every fan can get what they need but instead of using many different apps, they only need to use one, and at the same, time they can be rewarded with many great things.

Cryptodiffer Community

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?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

As mentioned before, we have developed a real solution for an exisiting major and know problem. Once the fans are inside our platform and they get exactly what they were looking for, like on youtube, booking.com, Spotify, Uber etc then they will of course use IQONIQ more and more. 

Seperate of the above we always sign a 3 year exclusive contract with the clubs and Idols, which of course will help us to build our business in a strong way.

Cryptodiffer Community

Could you tell us a little about the development plans for IQONIQ? Do you have a finished product and when do you think the platform will run at full capacity?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Yes we have build our platform, fan ecosystem and also have over 120 clubs. As you can see, we are totaly different from many other projects which the blockchain sector related, as many of them had just a whitepaper, great presentations, and it was only talking about technology and their tokens. As from our end we have been busy for several years to build our business, product, market, clients etc and only now we are going to the market.

Cryptodiffer Community

How does IQONIQ differ from other projects in the crypto space? What are your short-term goals and what are your plans for achieving them?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

One may difference is, that we dont talk about blockchain and crypto, but instead talk about our business, solution, product, market and clients. These are the most important, as when you dont have these and you talk about only crypto, technology, tokens, etc which means you really dont have a tangible business! You have to always ask yourtself, what is it good for, who does it help, what does it solve, do they have  a real product and solution, who is their market etc instead of what are the tokens how good it will be etc. When the business is not good and doesnt really solve anything, what is the good then of tokens???

Cryptodiffer Community

NFTs have been predicted to be the future of DeFi, what plans do you have for the NFT marketplace?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Yes you are right, and we have looked at digitable products and collectibles 3 years back but it was not the right time. Now with the new technologies ready to support this, we also have changed our position in this, and we will come out with some very exciting news ref this. It will add more value and also fan engagement for our users/fans.

Of course the covid has affected us also, but fortunately we have overcome it and we will come out stronger than before.

Cryptodiffer Community

How can IQONIQ keep data secure? What are the benefits of using IQONIQ platform?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Data is a very sensitive topic for everyone involved, which is for the clubs and fans. One thing we dont do is selling data to any third party, as we only learn from data so that we give the best possible solution to our users. Also the brands will not get the data, but as mentioned before, we also have developed a solid solution package for them so that they can also reach their real customers, and which we call data driven marketing 2.0

The benefits are many, but its an All-In-One platform whereby you as a fan can find everything related to all sports and entertainment in one single place. Its not only content, or news, but much more!

Cryptodiffer Community

Why do you need a blockchain and your own IQQ token for a sports and entertainment platform? Why not use the available methods? How does blockchain solve problems in this industry, if any?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Very good question, as mentioned before we always concentrated on the business and what problems we solve. We see blockchain as another methadology, like you also wrote, and we will only use blockchain elements where it only solves something and where it adds value. We see blockchain like other technologies, why do we use that, for what do we use that etc, as almost any blockchain/crypto related company is only talking about blockchain as it’s the holy grail, but thats not the case! So we use it in merchandise, voting, loyalty points, NFT’s, tickets etc.

Cryptodiffer Community

How does IQONIQ plan to dominate the market? How easy is it to use IQONIQ platform?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

We want to of course bring every sport club/team and entertainment rightsholder in our platform, and so far we are doing an excellent job. We are signing a 3 year exclusive contract which gives us of course an edge on other fan engagement related companies. We have now over 120 clubs and 200 in the pipeline and many Idols also in the pipeline.

The platfomr is very easy to use, like Facebook, Instagram etc and you will find this out very soon. 😊

Cryptodiffer Community

IQONIQ hаs a very impressive team, advisors and shareholders. How did you manage to get all thеsе pеоple together to work on your project? How many developers are on yоur tеam nоw?

Does IQONIQ have a Coin Burn / BuyBack or Token Burn system to increase the value of the IQQ token and attract investors to IQQ for investment?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Thanks Jessica, the answer is very simple. Who doesnt love sport and entertainment and add there that we have developed a real product which has a real solution for the 3 target groups made everyone see that we have something special. Thats why it was quite easy to get these excellent people involved in IQONIQ which Im very proud of.

We have a max quantity of IQQ tokens, and due that the market is so big and the real usage of our tokens inside our ecosystem, we dont need to do a coin burn, as with the massive market we believe that once the market sees what we have build and seeing all the clubs/teams and idols in the app would want the tokens as it will accelerate their benefits inside the app and the ecosystem

Cryptodiffer Community

What is the long-term vision of IQ for its users ?

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

Good question, we want to give the fans the best possible platform and ecosystem which will fullfill all their needs related to sports and entertainment. Instead of searching many websites, using many apps and without any real advantage and rewards, they will get the best possible platform at IQONIQ, where they finally can get also rewared being a loyal fan of their club and or idol.

Founder & CEO of IQONIQ, Kazim Atilla

I want to thank Cryptodiffer with organising this AMA, and want to aslo especially thank everyone who joined and asked these great questions.
