To begin with it would be great if you could give us a few details of your history and your role in the social rocket team?
My name is Felix Aubert, I am the founder and CEO of Social Rocket. My background is both technical and functional, I am a former engineer and I now have a bit more than 10 years of experience in tech, product management & strategy. I held a position of CTO in a large European agency specializing in new technologies for years, and I got a foothold in the crypto world in 2015 (and have stayed there ever since).
However, it is only since 1 year that I decided to devote myself 100% professionally to it, thanks to Social Rocket!

What is you project methodology to handle the complexity of this project?
Regarding the stage of development, we are currently in the product design phase. We are working with the SCRUM methodology, working in short iterations to avoid any potential tunnel effect. User-stories are written on the basis of the specifications previously established, and the complexity of each task is assessed and will result in the definition of 2-week sprints. Various velocity indicators as well as KPIs are currently defined, making it possible to monitor the progress of the project implementation.
Could you share the main next milestones of your roadmap?
We will first release a brand new 2.0 version of the whitepaper, then share the main designs of the platform within the next week! Then, a full interactive front-end demo of the platform will be released before the end of the year, allowing our community to become more familiar with the end product. Finally, we aim to release the beta version of the platform for Q1 2021!
To finish, what motivated you to set up this project of combining Blockchain with social media? What was the vision when it was first emerged as an idea?
Well, as we all know we live in a world in which big companies have the inertia to accumulate and centralize users, data and money. Blockchain is a technology, as we all know, that has the main value of offering a perspective of decentralization of those services. We have seen incredible blockchain-based projects over the years to deliver services through a new lens, but none have truly combined social media and blockchain so I felt like we needed to do it, and in the best timing. And here we are!
