This is a special community spotlight because we are celebrating a milestone achievement on YEN. Waqar (icoNeo on YEN) is the first Yenizen to reach $1,000,000 in trades on YEN! At this rate, he may even hit $10,000,000 soon (#whale). I sat down with Waqar earlier this week to learn more about his story. Here is what he had to say…
We now have 659 Yenizens in the Yeniverse (as I am writing this blog post), which means our community has grown more than 50% since May 1st! I have only been working on this project for two months, and yet, it feels like we have already grown so much since I have started and I couldn’t be more excited for the future.
Brand development can be a nightmare for companies, especially startups. Where do you start? How do you know your brand identity is good? Does our brand properly reflect who we are as a company? These questions can cause headaches for anyone and they certainly have for us at YEN.
The team working on YEN is completely distributed, but that doesn’t mean that we do not like getting together in person every once and awhile, and we believe that our community would like more opportunities to do the same.
