JAMEEL SHARIFF is the Chief Executive Officer & Council Member of P2Ps. He is a Serial Entrepreneur and Innovator with excellent track record and success stories in the technology industry. In this interview, he will be sharing with us his latest Blockchain technology and Cryptocurrecny project with his P2p Solutions Foundation team;
1) Could you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Hey, thank you for asking Angela.
I am a third generation entrepreneur, with advanced degrees from European and US educational institutions. Some people consider me to be a visionary. One of the reasons is because I co-founded a company back in 2004, focused on challenging the status quo in traditional education and migrating the education system to electronic format, which is today popularly known as eLearning (eLearning=Electronic Learning). We named our corporation Electronic Learning Inc. (ELI) back in the days when no common person would have thought of eLearning. Most people confuse eLearning to be “Online Learning” but eLearning is much more than just an online learning format. One of the other reasons is that I co-founded Innovative Solutions International Inc. (ISI), a research and development corporation incorporated in USA, through which we developed the push system in 2010. We conducted extensive research and continued to develop a secure, interference free, peer to peer, digital delivery platform that is today acknowledged as being much needed by every organization that genuinely cares to protect the privacy of their digital assets, whether the government or the various corporate sectors such as banks, hospitals and content publishers. Third party evaluations resulted in acknowledging that our platform has no comparable substitutes or alternatives on a global level.
With regards to my academic diplomas, my qualifications include, but are not limited to, four years Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management (BSBM) from USA, and Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Management, also from USA. Both BSBM and MBA were awarded to me with highest honor and distinction of “Summa Cum Laude”. I have also attended several executive management courses and have a few more diplomas to my credit from Stanford University, California, USA, that include a Diploma in IT and a Diploma in Software Security from Stanford Engineering. I took courses in cryptography and Blockchain offered by Stanford and learnt from some of the best professors in the world namely Professor Dan Boneh and Professor Neil Daswani among others of the Computer Science Department. I am currently pursuing a Doctorate in Education.
Along with other directors who are inducted on the board of directors from time to time, I sit on the board of ELI, ISI & now P2P Solutions Foundation too. I am actively monitoring the operations and also assist in guiding them to achieve corporate objectives, for the benefit and protection of all current and future stakeholders. Electronic Learning Inc. AND Innovative Solutions International Inc. are currently headed and managed by me as their co-founder & CEO.
2) What is P2p Solutions Foundation?
In short, the P2P Solutions Foundation (P2PSF) is an independent body governed by the Foundation Council. The P2P Solutions Foundation has been authorized to create a worldwide network of digital services that encompasses an alternative working model to the traditional models of peer-to-peer networks and oversee its productive growth. The alternative working models of peer-to-peer networks must be on Blockchain and compliant with Crypto technologies that are conclusively acknowledged as technologies of the future. The P2P Solutions Foundation will govern the P2PS token supply and also the P2PS Rewards. It shall provide support services and the requisite tools for the smooth operation of all digital services within the ecosystem. Eventually, the ecosystem’s comprehensive transition to an entirely autonomous and decentralized network shall be expedited by the P2P Solutions Foundation.
Moreover, the P2P Solutions Foundation will govern the development of common, dynamic, fundamental components like the crypto-token wallets, among other feasible solutions within the ecosystem. P2P Solutions Foundation will also extend its support to all stakeholders interested in developing, enhancing or embracing the solutions offered periodically by the foundation that would be aimed at integrating transaction economies for the benefit of all stakeholders globally.
3) What inspired you to launch a Blockchain and Cryptocurrency business with P2P Solutions Foundation?
That’s an interesting question Angela. Looking back over the last century, you cannot miss noticing the consistency with which communication technologies have evolved and rapidly advanced. The invention and advent of each one of the new communication technologies, starting from telegraph, telephone and to the present day wireless internet, witnessed every innovation bringing commercially viable opportunities to the world; thereby making life easier than before for anyone willing to move forward in embracing the innovative solutions.
However, along with making life easier, such opportunities bring a huge security risk. Look around you. Has it not become common news in recent times that crypto exchanges and even your crypto wallets are being hacked on a daily basis and your savings stored in them simply vanish in the blink of an eye? Is anything that you exchange digitally with anyone, anywhere, private by any privacy standards; including information exchanged on your so called “private” intranet corporate networks?
Therefore, P2P Solutions Foundation endeavored to bring you the world’s first blockchain-powered, secure, pure peer-to-peer, interference-free digital communication platform designed for everyone with a need to securely store and exchange digital data such as private data, medical records, banking data and government classified data, among other sensitive digital exchanges. Such platforms today are simply nonexistent.
4) What makes P2P Solutions Foundation crypto ICO different from the others?
P2P Solutions Foundation has been acknowledged as the top 1% of ICOs due to its unique platform. The entire world wants to embrace digital technology in all walks of life without first solving the problem of prying eyes that are watching your every digital exchange. Most of the time, in fact all the time, everything that you exchange digitally has always already been seen by others before the final recipient. We are solving the worlds biggest problem by offering second to none, state of the art, easy to use secure, pure peer-to-peer, interference-free digital communication platform that is intuitive to the habits of end users.
5) How much do you intend to raise in the P2PS Token Sale?
We will accept up to 136,000 ETH or equivalent in BTC, BCH or LTC from our token contributors and participants. We shall stop accepting contributions when 136,000 ETH or its equivalent in BTC, BCH or LTC hard cap has been reached.
6) Why would P2P Solutions Foundation increase in Equity and Value and how can P2PS Token holders Profit if they invest now?
P2P Solutions Foundation will be assisted by ELI and ISI to build fundamental value for the new P2PS token by integrating P2PS token into their respective digital educational and peer-to-peer Push System platforms. P2PS will then become the primary transaction token for ELI and ISI. Hence, the first companies to start using the P2PS tokens are ELI and ISI; and the Push System platform will be the primary service. Moreover, users can conveniently initiate transactions using the common P2PS tokens instead of having to buy various licenses from their local distributors of their respective countries. Thus, P2PS token shall provide great value to different members of the growing ELI and ISI digital community. ELI and ISI users can also, in due course of time, transact with their P2PS tokens outside of the education and Push System network to eventually procure various goods and services offered by vendors accepting P2PS tokens in the global arena. End users, rather than depending on their localized online and retail distribution channels, would be able to conveniently source goods and services not available to them normally; possibly at a much better price point.
During the ICO stage the early contributors would considerably benefit from the BONUS offered in addition to a low P2PS token standard price of 0.0034 ETH per token that equates to 300 P2PS tokens for 1 ETH. The acquisition price would be much lower depending on the BONUS obtained.
Subsequent to the launch of the P2PS communication & payment platform, the P2PS tokens would command a much higher price of about 100 P2PS for the same ETH, an appreciation of about 300% making it a potential multi-bagger. However, the possibility of a much higher value appreciation must be factored in after the revenues start kicking in from the expansion into the targeted 49 countries over the next couple of years.
7) What are the steps for acquiring the P2PS Token ?
The P2PS tokens can be procured during ICO directly from P2P Solutions Foundation. Simply visit www.p2psf.org and you will find the maneuver very simple and easy to buy the tokens.
After buying the P2PS tokens, you can deposit them into an ERC20 standard token wallet such as MyEtherWallet, Meta Mask, Mist, Parity, Imtoken, etc. One of the many reasons you may want to acquire and hold the P2PS tokens is for use on the secure peer-to-peer proprietary network platforms other than to trade on crypto-exchanges.
8) Would you like to share the exchanges where P2PS Token will be traded?
Sure. The P2PS tokens will soon list on Bittrex, Poloniex, Coinone, Yobit, Liqui, Waves Dex exchange, EtherDelta and Cryptopia among other prominent global crypto-exchanges.
9) What were some of the biggest challenges you encountered while working to launch your ICO?
We are work in progress since 2010. The secure, interference free, Peer-to-Peer Communication System platform’s venture started in early 2010 and has been self-funded to completion. In November 2017, we launched P2PS token and released the token in pre-ICO that is now an ongoing ICO so that we could bring you a secure system through which you can exchange confidential digital assets or files with absolutely no interference from any third party; not even a network or systems administrator. The only challenge we seemed to have faced is not being prepared for big expenditure allocations towards digital marketing. Other then that, we have been smooth sailing so far with huge interest generated from large institutional participants and contributors.
10) Where do you see P2P Solutions Foundation after ICO and in the next 5 years?
P2P Solutions Foundation anticipates that over the next 5 years, the Serviceable Obtainable Market (SOM) for users in the top 49 high potential countries globally that are known to quickly adapt and embrace secure digital transaction systems, is about 725 million users off the Serviceable Available Market (SAM) of 1.1 Billion and TAM of 1.5 Billion users.
Therefore, I reiterate that the possibility of a much higher value appreciation must be factored in after the revenues start kicking in from the expansion into some of the targeted 49 countries over the next couple of years.
11) What are your marketing and sales strategies to achieve that?
We are going to have an experienced marketing and sales team headed by a Chief Marketing & Sales Officer once we have completed this phase of the ICO. We do not want to spend monies on something that is not needed at this point. We would prefer to cross the bridge when we reach it, but plan ahead of time and consider every major and minor challenge that we may encounter down the road.
12) Could you tell us a little about your team and customer support?
Sure Angela. We have a highly motivated diverse team with a strong background, whose goal is to make a difference in global decentralized, secure and interference free, Peer-to-Peer Communication Systems platform.
First, we have our COO Dr. Waleed AlOriny who is a technologist with BS, MS and PhD all in Computer Science and Computer Systems Engineering.
Next we have Mr. Sean Kirtz. Sean holds BS Software Engineering, Magna Cum Laude Degree from Florida Atlantic with major focus on software engineering, Plutus, Casper and Blockchain technology. By the end of his course Blockchain Technology started; since then he has dedicated everything for it.
Then we have Mr. Amos Henry whose endeavors have taken him to several continents and countries. Some of them include North America, Europe, South America, Africa, Australia, Japan, Philippines, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and several other countries that Mr. Henry has been conducting business in, during his last few decades of business activities.
Furthermore, we have Ben who is a serial Entrepreneur and Inventor of several Technology Solutions on various platforms.
Then we have our project managers Mr. Faris Azam and Mr. Manikfan. Faris is a strong finance professional with a Bachelor of Business Management (BBM), major in financial markets. Faris was exposed to people from the investment banking industry when he was just 14, and has been ever since associated with hedge funds and investment banking space. Manikfan has grown from a network engineer to a technical support engineer and all the way to a consultant. He has been involved with large financial institutions such as HSBC and Citibank managing their IT infrastructure, etc. for the last couple of decades.
Finally, we have Shino Thomas with hands on extensive work experience of over 10 years in both Telecommunications and IT projects in multi-national, multi-cultural environments who has been a great help. Other than the core members I just named we also have some support services staff in few countries who are doing a great job.
As far as customer support is concerned I strongly believe that “customer is the king in our business”. Therefore, we endeavor to keep all our stake holders comfortable and satisfied so that we can all together, as one team, work toward customers delight.
13) Would you like to talk about your legal and security measures?
One word. Excellent. If there is anything we have learnt in the last eight years, it is to have strong multiple legal teams and a system that no one can hack into using the tools available today. I have no idea of the tools that may come up in the future but we shall take adequate precautions through conducting stringent audits from time to time.
14) Do you have more information for our readers?
All the information that we have is transparently put out there in the public domain through our website and the Bitcointalk ANN thread with absolutely nothing to hide.
Thank you so much for inviting me for this interview Angela. It was great exchanging information with you.
