Hello, everyone!

We are glad to meet here 

CMO at NDN Link  (@mark_nezvisky)

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

Hey everyone!!

Thanks for hosting me today. I am looking forward to an amazing questions from the community today.

CryptoDiffer team

Let`s start with introduction questions

Q1. What is NDN Link?

 

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

NDN Link is Named Data Networking + Blockchain. Named Data Networking is an Internet protocol that is used to fetch data over the Internet and it  works differently than the TCP/IP protocol that is currently being used worldwide. 

It fetches data on the network by Name instead of the IP address so if you want to fetch a piece of content on the network, all you need to know is the NAME of that content and NDN Link will bring it to you.

Q2. Why do we need NDN Link?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

Because data of tcp/ip is centralized, meaning it resides on central servers, from the business perspective you get lots of overhead on maintenance and operations from the consumer perspective you get your data hacked, instability in connection, interruptions and freezes.

TCP/IP is the way the current Internet functions, it’s location based and is limited to endpoint communication we want to decentralize the Internet at the NETWORK layer.

Q3. For whom NDN Link is intended for?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

Initially, we want to create an infastructure for business to improve their applications or create new ones, but then once it adopts, any user of the internet would become the user of NDN Link and of course investors, who would find value in NDN Link as their portfolio of choice.

CryptoDiffer team

Ok, thanks for such detailed and interesting answers!

Let’s move to the Telegram community questions part.

Cryptodiffer Community

What are some of the Existing Problems of TCP/IP that made NDN Link to replace it with Named Data Networking (NDN) in building a new underlying infrastructure of the Internet?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

TCP/Ip works from server to client. Everytime you need a piece of content it makes the call to the server, if millions of people do that, the server can’t handle it and thus the user start experiencing problems with the connection. Interruptions, glitches freezes, especially for video. And the companies that maintain the server need to expand their storage space. Which drives the cost up. That’s why we need NDN Link to cache all of that data on the routers of the network so that users wouldn’t have to make calls to the server each time, but would be able to get it from the router that is nearest to them. Hope this makes sense

Cryptodiffer Community

Its one of those projects which Can attract lot of Users, Even Non-Crypto people can be benefitted from it.

As I understood that NDN netwrok will verify all the data that will come from Network

But My question is How does the data that we are going to receive will be Counterfieted? Who does that?

On what Basis Do you Verify all the data?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

Each data packet that is produced on the network will have a cryptographic signature, much like the cryptography that is used in the blockchain only it’s going to be used at the network layer, where we have the tcp/ip protocol now. Right now, if the server or client gets hacked your data is exposed, tcp/ip does not encrypt it, but with NDN even if endpoints of communications are hacked the data itself is cryptographically signed. Plus the data is immutable, meaning you cannot have 2 identical pieces of data on the network and this will protect against counterfiet data.

Cryptodiffer Community

Is there a road map for internalization or the app and website and more targeted events on certain countries or continents?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

yes, the roadmap, could be found at our website https://www.ndn.link/#roadmap we are at stage 1 at the moment

Cryptodiffer Community

How much world wide is NDN Link? Basically can be used in all scenarios to replace the typical TCP/IP? 

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

Yes anywhere where the internet is used NDN Link can be used. We are going to be an overlay for the tcp/ip protocol, just like tcp/ip was once an overlay for the telephone lines. This would allows us to deploy the technology on the current infrastructure without introducing drastic changes to the hardware worldwide.

Cryptodiffer Community

What did NDN Link do to minimize the possibility of information theft but also encrypt all user data packets sent over the Internet?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

By cryptographically signing each data packet that is produced on the network.

Cryptodiffer Community

Do you have any plans to attract non-crypto investors to #Ndnlink and how? What are the measures to increase awareness of #ndnlink in non-crypto space?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

We believe that if we efficiently replace the underlying protocol of today’s internet then regular non-crypto folks would feel the difference in their online communication. For example, let’s say you’re watching a video from YouTube, each second of that video is fetched from Google’s server, if you want to watch the same video on the next day with tcp/ip you need to fetch the video again, instead with NDN Link, that video will be cached on your router and you can just fetch it from there without overloading google’s server, better stability and speed for you and better for the google server.

Moreover, other users of the network would also be able to fetch that video from your router if it’s within their proximity, if not then it will find the nearest router to them. So NDN Link doesn’t care where that video is as long as it knows the name of the video IP cares for the location of the video and it only can get it from the server.

Cryptodiffer Community

What is the difference between NDN Link and WhatsApp, Viber, Messenger, Telegram, WeChat?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

NDN Link can server as a Network Layer of communication for all those messengers, right now all of them use TCP/IP plus the benefit of using NDN for them would also be in the data encryption that I’ve mentioned earlier, so let’s say Viber’s or any other IM server gets hacked your data is safe because it can only be accessed by a cryptographic key right now with TCP/IP if it’s hacked then your communication is compromised because it’s not encrypted.

Cryptodiffer Community

Saw your website you have discussed about NDN and P2P systems…

Can you please tell here in short about what is actual different between NDN and p2p system??

Is it same or having some difference??

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

Good question, at a first glance, they make look alike and there is some similarity in the data distribution concept, because with P2P the data is also not stored in 1 single location, but here’s the thing it’s still tcp/ip based meaning that it needs the IP address of devices to fetch data and bring it to you and there’s no encryption of data traveling through the network with NDN you don’t need to know the IP addresses of x amount of computers on a P2P network to download a movie you just need the name of movie, that’s it. 

Where it’s located is irrelevant and NDN LInk will always take the shortest path to it, either with Wi-fi, bluetooth, nfc, 4g, you name it. And if the connection on one interface breaks, no problem it will switch to another interface to deliver the packet right now, if you’re on mobile internet watching a Youtube video and you need to switch to wi-fi, your connection will break, because a request to the server needs to be sent to reestablish the connection with NDN link, it doesn’t break, because we don’t care where the data is or how it gets to us.

Cryptodiffer Community

Can you tell us a little bit about how you got into crypto and what was the motivation for you behind NDN Link?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

I got into crypto accidentally to be honest, I know everyone wants to hear a great story of how I was the early pioneer of bitcion, but that was not the case.  I was doing YouTube before and was approached by CryptoDaily to run their YouTube channel, and then after that project was finished I was contacted by NDN Link. I was sold instantly on the idea of NDN Link, because I understand of how much global value it could bring to all of us.

Cryptodiffer Community

“Reusable Proofs of Work”, is this new consensus mechanism your own? own NDN Link?

How to ensure that your token will not drop in price as a death spiral? What fundamentals are present for a hodl?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

There is no guarantee for price movements on the market, not a singal project can give you that. The market is the market. Only it will define if the price goes up or down. But I believe that the technology behind the project is solid, even at it’s early stages and has great  potential to create a global impact.

Cryptodiffer Community

After the listing in OKEx

What exchanges would you like NDN token will be listed?

What are your next activities that will make NDN Link Famous?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

We are going continue improving the technology behind it, the project is only as good as long as it can produce results. In terms of being famous, that’s up to community. If you guys think it’s good then it will skyrocket 🙂

Cryptodiffer Community

In the scope of governmental and institutional partnerships, which of the existing partnerships (between NDN & a government) is the most impactful and why?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

There are now very few governments in the world that can actually support the crypto community, so in those terms we probably need to do a better job as a crypto community to establish a solid working relationship with the government and get more support for all of the projects, not just NDN Link.

Cryptodiffer Community

All current projects are concerned with the speed and quantity of transactions. Old projects have also improved their network. So what else does #NDNLink need to bring to Customers?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

Besides speed and quantity of transactions, we are concerned about security, stability of the network, neutrality for all parties involved. we achieve security by cryptographically signing each data packet at the network level. cryptography is used in blockchain, but it’s not being addressed at the network layer. more speed and more decentralization than we currently have comes from the fact that we move away from data being stored in one place. So it’s not just about improving speed, decentralization and security, it’s also getting rid of dependencies from data being stored only on specific servers.

Cryptodiffer Community

What is the current demand of the market? How can NDN Link address that need?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

I think everyone with no exception has experienced their own disapointment with the Internet. You watch a live stream, and bam: froze picture, sound is distorted, or the server is down. Can’t  access  email,  file is downloading slowly, etc. etc. That is the need of the market and we are going to satisfy it.

And of course hacks, those are the killers. With the blockchain we shouldn’t be even hearing that word “hacks”, but then we get this exchanged hacked, that exchanged hacked. Even the big players in the industry, tech giants, Amazon, Nasa, Apple, you name it. All got hacked at some point.

In TCP/IP only the end points are secure, server and the Client(laptop, mobile, tablet, computer, etc) if either of those endpoints gets hacked, you’re screwed, also, no disrespect to the creators of TCP/Ip that was an awesome piece of technology 40 years ago, salute to Paul Baran! but now, it just doesn’t server the needs of the modern market.

Cryptodiffer Community

Your project is getting very good supports from big names like Huawei, Intel or Cisco. How are they helping NDN in terms of technical?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

Mostly technical consultations for now on best course of actions and development strategies.

Cryptodiffer Community

Why You choose Ethereum blockchain for Your project?. The Ethereum you use presently has the problem of scalability, how would you solve this?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

This is a temporary move in order for the community to benefit from the token investment at the yearly stages and for us to support the project. Later on we will be having our own native token and will address the scalability issue then. It’s just easier to get things started this way.

Cryptodiffer Community

NDN is one of the projects of OKEx jumpstart, what are the benefits for the project for being in this association? What can we expect from it short term?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

We are glad to be able to partner up with OKex and are thankful for their support, hopefully this will create a positive impact on all parties involved: the community, investors, OkEx and NDN Link

Cryptodiffer Community

What are the main differences between TCP / IP and NDN?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

Tcp/ip needs to know the IP address of the server from where it can get the data from, NDN only needs to know the name of the data and doesn’t care if it’s on the server or some node on the network, or the router nearest to you.

Cryptodiffer Community

If NDN Protocol tries to replace the TCP / IP Protocol, what marketing plan will be used to publicize the platform?

NDN has a strategy to avoid scams in bad producer?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

We believe the most in the word of mouth from the community, if people find value, like it, share on their social media that essentially brings the impact.

Cryptodiffer Community

The data sended to NDN Link always will chose the most near router, node or Network available. So than mean  NDN Link have a better flow and can be considered a data agglomeration solutions?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

Our primary focus is on data transmissions, mainly live streams, online video conferences, video chats, etc. but NDN Link might find it’s place with data agglomeration in the future. We just haven’t explored that yet.

Cryptodiffer Community

An average Internet user believes everything is fine with the way it currently works. How would you explain to them the necessity for NDN Link, and the problems inherent in the present IP address model that warranted the creation of NDN Link?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

We will start with businesses and convey the concept to them with numbers and show how much money they can save, once that is in place then the average user will feel their online experience with NDN Link in a better way, there won’t be a need for convincing anymore.

Cryptodiffer Community

Is there any future plan that ndn can be mined through your games, connecting the blockchain to the web and that it be totally decentralized?

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

I don’t completely understand the question, but it’s good that you’ve mentioned games, because live streaming in games is 100% an are of improvement where the tcp/ip protocol struggles.

Cryptodiffer Community

why have you chosen OKEX for your IEO over other top exchanges like kucoin, Binance ?

And give us top reasons why I should invest NDNLink.

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

You gotta start with someone right? so OKEx like us too and the feeling was mutual 🙂 Why you should invest in NDN Link is up to you, I’ll just say that we are doing something that has never been done before not only in the blockchain industry but with the Internet as a whole. So if you’d like to be a part of this amazing change, then welcome aboard 🙂

Mark Nezvinsky CMO at NDN Link

I think that’s going to be pretty much it on my side guys, sorry to the ones of which questions I didn’t answer.
