We talked to Alex Klark of CryptoTotem about the blockchain industry, and this is what he had to say:-
First of all, how are you and your family doing in these COVID-19 times?
Alex Klark: Covid-19 made serious adjustments to our lifestyle. But we were able to adapt and benefit from them. We started to spend more time together, paying attention to health and safety.
Tell us about you, your career, how you founded CryptoTotem.
Alex Klark: I started my career in banking, helping people solve financial issues. I’m an expert in this field. I also have been developing online projects since 2014. CryptoTotem appeared in the 4Q of 2017, at the peak of the popularity of cryptocurrencies. I realized that the blockchain is a useful and unique technology, and the crypto world is our future.
How does CryptoTotem innovate?
Alex Klark: We have a young and ambitious team. We attend crypto conferences and follow the latest news in the blockchain industry. It helps us to keep abreast of trends and set a new vision for our company’s development.
How the coronavirus pandemic affects your business, and how are you coping?
Alex Klark: The coronavirus pandemic has shown the world that the businesses most exposed to the crisis are those that exclude their online presence. As our business is completely online, we didn’t feel the negative consequences. On the contrary, cryptocurrency is becoming more popular, and our company’s income is growing.
Did you have to make difficult choices, and what are the lessons learned?
Alex Klark: We are always faced with a choice between what we want to do and what we need to do. Every decision we make changes our life. There was a time when the question arose as to whether to proceed with the CryptoTotem project or not. The business required large financial investments and took up all my free time. But I’m sure that if I don’t give up, everything will definitely work out. That is exactly what is happening now.
What specific tools, software, and management skills are you using to navigate this crisis?
Alex Klark: We use planning and daily market analysis in our work. Our business is conducted completely remotely, so we haven’t felt the negative effects of the crisis.
Who are your competitors? And how do you plan to stay in the game?
Alex Klark: We respect our competitors; they help us become better. The cryptocurrency market is on the rise and will get a tasty piece of the pie for everyone.
Your final thoughts?
Alex Klark: It is important to do any business with love and full dedication, then you will have great success! Be open to everything new, don’t be afraid of difficulties and failure, because this is real life. After all, whatever our life is now, it is still beautiful.
