VIDT Datalink Awareness Team
Introduction by Joshua Jenster, chairman VIDT Datalink Awareness Team
I’d like to start this publication off with reiterating what the Board is so all the new sets of eyes have a clear understanding:
The objective of this board is to advocate for the timestamping technology, blockchain and data integrity as a whole and help the integrators to generate new business and use-cases. We are a team of experienced professionals from different industries and with different, complementary, skill sets to achieve this.
We’ve had quite the journey so far with the VIDT Datalink Tech and had some great success testing several markets. VIDT integrators, like Procentec, Navarik and Verify All Documents have certified many documents over the years. But as every business or technology evolves, new skills and different kinds of people are needed to take it to the next level. When it comes to VIDT Datalink we’ve come to this point. It is now time to bridge the chasm and scale. So for the VIDT Datalink tech, it is essentially business as usual, but better. With the expansion of the team, and with new energy — focus on the future.
The road ahead
For VIDT Datalink, the road ahead comes in three stages:
Stage 1 — Helping VIDT integrators with scaling and upselling existing customers
The easiest route to gaining more traction is by upselling and upscaling existing customers. These parties already have integrated VIDT tech and by working together with these parties we can expand technical value proposition. This in turn will help us achieve better results for step 2.
Stage 2 — Stimulating the upscaling of existing niches and markets
Step 2 is to expand in the niches and markets VIDT is already in. This does not mean we abandon efforts for step 1, this is something that we focus on in parallel. However, full effort for step 2 only starts when we are ready as a company. We are very close to this stage and are working hard behind the scenes to get it ready.
Stage 3 — Leveraging new niches and markets
When you’ve satisfied a certain niche, it is time to expand. New markets, new niches, and new industries. Reaching these new territories can be difficult and this is why companies usually take over other companies or find specific partners. The VIDT Tech currently is not yet ready to take on a full focus to expand to new markets, but innovators are already testing the waters and doing research as to which niche/market/industry is best to focus expansion on.
So to recap, we are working hard to expand and improve the foundation of all the organisations involved in VIDT Datalink. Sometimes this has the downside that it brings a lot of work which falls under an NDA and prevents us from sharing with the public. VIDT Integrators luckily are doing plenty of marketing and outreach in the ‘business world’.
With the rise of our efforts comes the need for more professionalism, which is another point I’d like to address.
I want to address something that is quite abstract but very important to us: professionalism. Customers using the VIDT Datalink tech expect to have a level of professionalism and they expect us to be able to provide certain things like trust, certainty and security. This also means that I, as the chairman, have to take this extremely seriously.
To everyone sending us love, helping us find new integrators and sharing positive insights: thank you, we appreciate it.
In the ‘business world’ professionalism is so important, that it can be a make it or break it for a deal.
Thanks everyone for understanding and if you have any questions regarding professionalism, let’s get the conversation going.
How are the other board members doing?
Jolanda has had several sessions with medium to large organizations. Diplomas and certificates use-cases were discussed, but also the increase of transparency and accountability with the help of blockchain technology. The response was very positive, but the summer is typically not the period in which such projects are quickly closed due to vacations. It’s great to see how Jolanda finds more and more support and recommends VIDT Tech with such great enthusiasm. Many thanks for that Jolanda!
Our friends of crypto buddies, Petra and Dave have not been idle either and have held several awareness sessions in which they highlight the benefits but especially the risks of investing in crypto. Digibyte, Bitcoin, Cardano and VIDT are mainly discussed, we think it would be great to take a more active role in this. The world needs education — the awareness of cryptocurrencies and blockchain has only just begun and we believe in honesty and transparency so everyone understands what it means to work with blockchain tech.
Rudy Bouwman, instead of having a well deserved relaxing summer, has been working effortlessly on a new project, hopefully he can reveal more soon. Needlessly to say that Rudy really is one of the good guys of this space, very happy to have him on board and would be great if the community could support him in any way they can.
Onwards, and upwards,
