How I Launched A Startup During A War

So you think your startup launch was challenging?  Try doing it during a war! 

This is not a political piece and I am not going to talk about the Middle East conflict.  This is a business article about how you can never predict the obstacles you are going to encounter when starting a new company, and about how anything can be overcome with determination, open mindedness and perseverance.

Under normal circumstances, Israel is an ideal environment for developing new technologies, with its highly evolved high-tech industry and accompanying infrastructure.  The usual backdrop to a normal working day is a healthy buzz of ambitious professionals rushing around between high-rise offices, shouting spiritedly into smartphones and queuing for overpriced caffeine hits.  However, Israel’s ongoing political conflict sometimes puts entrepreneurs in unusual and challenging situations, when Tel Aviv’s rush hour traffic is replaced with the sound of rocket sirens and businessmen fold up their shirts and don their army reserve uniforms.

I was all set for the big launch of my digital currency startup, Crypto Next, in July 2014; our press release was reaching its embargo date, we were counting down to the launch of our crowd sale, social media posts were in full hype and we expected to go off with a bang.  And then a different kind of bang went off- in the form of a rocket shower.  Just days before our launch date, a war broke out.  

Suddenly the local media, previously excited about hearing from entrepreneurs in a fresh and interesting business space, had their hands full with the conflict.  My hopes of television appearances and nationwide coverage were shattered.  Investor meetings and networking events, engagements that I was counting on to kickstart our launch and boost funding, were either cancelled or interrupted by the sound of warning sirens followed by a rushed exodus to the nearest bomb shelter.  I even got drafted to the army reserves a week after our official launch date, bringing the small amount of momentum I had managed to establish, to an abrupt and unceremonious halt. 

It became clear that my launch strategy was going to have to be modified dramatically, and my expectations lowered.  Rather than getting thoroughly downhearted, however, I saw this as a test of my determination and endurance.  This is what I did:  

I changed my PR strategy

Having achieved some coverage from the international press, I was relying on local media interest to write more detailed articles about me and my company’s development centre, which is in Israel.  Since the Israeli media was understandably disinterested in my bitcoin startup in the face of war and destruction, I focused on the local media in the Isle of Man, where my company is incorporated and where our main activities are located.  I didn’t have the same insights and media contacts as I do in my country of residence, but the Isle of Man is highly supportive of the Bitcoin movement and consists of a relatively small, accessible and - most importantly - supportive business community.  We appealed to the amazing people we work with in the IOM and managed to achieve a joint press release with the local government - something I never would have thought possible and would not have considered attempting under different circumstances.  We ended up getting coverage for our IOM presence which resulted in valuable exposure.

I insisted on having meetings

Even when the situation was at its worst, I refused to cancel meetings and insisted they go ahead, even if it meant risking all by driving amid sirens warning of falling rockets through streets eerily empty of traffic, or holding meetings in my home bomb shelter.  This insistence ended up separating the more sincere parties from the time-wasters; those who were really serious about working with me were willing to take the risk to meet, and I ended up finding better partners for it.

I changed my fundraising strategy

I had previously hoped to fund our system development by means of a crowd sale.  Since this relies on strong local community engagement and PR, the sale gained less traction than we had hoped.  Fortunately, our crowd sale strategy was not time limited and I was able to let it run whilst I spoke to friends and set meetings with new contacts about seed funding.  We ended up funding the development of our system mostly internally, and not needing the crowd sale, a decision that ended up working out well and that I would not have made unless I was forced to do so.  

I stayed professional

With all the talk of the political situation flying around, especially across social networks, I decided to remain professional and focus all social media on business, general interest and our progress, and not get into the political debate. 

I worked out of hours. A lot.  

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and I had to cram as much traveling and meetings as possible into the quiet periods when people were willing to venture outside.  I worked nights and weekends, and had to accommodate other people’s schedules, sacrificing my own.  

Yes, I didn’t sleep much for several weeks and my wife is still in process of forgiving me, but my company was launched and funded, and our first product is being unveiled next week.  I know that there will be challenges ahead but, having successfully launched a company in the middle of a war, I feel prepared for anything.

Crypto Next Interview With Ron Gross of Mastercoin Project

Ron Gross is Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Mastercoin foundation. He spoke to Crypto Next Plc in Tel Aviv, following the launch of its coin, Crypto Next Coin (CXC), which is based on the Mastercoin protocol.

Crypto Next: What drew you to Bitcoin and cryptocurrency in the first place?
Ron Gross: Digital currencies have the potential to change the world. They display solid economics and massive technological potential. I have been involved with Bitcoin since 2011 and really appreciate the people behind it. 

Crypto Next: How do you see the world of cryptocurrency developing in the future? 
Ron Gross: Cryptocurrencies are just in their infancy right now.  In time their use will become easier as regulation becomes widespread and the world will learn to deal with digital currency such as Bitcoin. We believe that there will be a three pronged adaptation process, by: users, visitors and government. We can already see Bitcoin being used in more and more places and its uses are becoming more advanced as well.  For example, Bitcoin is now being used in financial services.

Crypto Next:  How does the Israeli Bitcoin community relate to the rest of the world?
Ron Gross:  Israel is a cryptocurrency hub.  There is a big Bitcoin community here both in terms of activist and innovators.  There is a high level of consumer adoption in the country whereby shops accept Bitcoin, and the community is very active, with fortnightly Meetups and a big conference coming up in Tel Aviv being prime examples.

Crypto Next:  What is still missing from the Bitcoin market?
Ron Gross:  Two main things; adoption by larger players and regulation.  I believe that someday Bitcoin will be in the mainstream, some players will (and have been) very fast to adopt it, and some will be more conservative.  Either way, there will be a domino effect once these two barriers begin to come down.

Crypto Next: What does Mastercoin have coming up?
Ron Gross: We are soon to be launching our Mastercore platform.  This is a platform that is easy to integrate so it should facilitate more exchanges, add liquidity, facilitate crowd sales and add several helpful tools.  We plan to go live with the platform on the 1st August 2014, so really soon.

Crypto Next: How do you see Mastercoin and Crypto Next's relationship developing?
Ron Gross: I see Crypto Next becoming a part of Mastercoin's affiliates program.  As Crypto Next expands its services and defines its needs, Mastercoin will be able to accommodate its needs with our protocol and new Mastercore platform.

Press Release: The Isle of Man Is Becoming Cryptocurrency Hotspot

The Isle of Man Is Becoming Cryptocurrency Hotspot
Digital Currency Exchange, Crypto Next plc, Is The Second Digital Currency Company To Launch In The Isle of Man In Under A Month
Crypto Next plc is an Isle of Man company that wants to bring digital currencies to grassroots level by providing turn-key packages that include a company, operating and trading accountsand white label currency exchange platform, instantly overcoming regulatory and technological barriers.
Crypto Next plc is the second cryptocurrency company to launch in the Isle of Man, where the Government has openly welcomed digital currency companies; a development which is attracting cryptocurrency based businesses since the announcement on the 10th June 2014.
Taking advantage of the Isle of Man’s forward-thinking attitude towards cryptocurrency based businesses, Crypto Nextplc is able to pass on the security that comes with being registered with a financial regulator to its users and affiliates. The company launched a crowd sale yesterday, July 15th, by issuing its own coin, Crypto Next Coin (CXC), which can be used in lieu of fees for some of the company’s products and services, providing owners of CXC with considerable savings.
Peter Greenhill, the Director of E-Business in the Isle of Man Department of Economic Development said, "we welcome this announcement by Crypto Next plc and are pleased to have them join the growing number of quality Digital Currency businesses who are selecting the Isle of Man as their jurisdiction of choice. Their acceptance of our insistence to adhering to full AML/KYC regulations and then applying for formal registration by our Financial Supervision Commission will help us to ensure that the consumers are protected and that we keep crime out."
Crypto Next plc acknowledges the difficulty for some businesses to provide or integrate cryptocurrency platforms to their companies. By providing a legal and regulatory framework with its exchange, merchant and remittance platforms, Crypto Next plc enables companies to utilize digital currencies, a service that was previously unavailable to them.
Its mission is to simplify digital currencies and to make them more accessible, within the safety of a regulatory framework and conventional business practices. Crypto Next plc has appointed local company Döhle Corporate and Trust Services Ltd as Company Administrators. Paul Swindale, Director, said “We believe that Cryptocurrency is a key market for the future and are immensely enjoying working with Crypto Next plc on this exciting project”
Ron Gross, Executive Director of the Mastercoin Foundation said “With [Crypto Next plc’s] solution, we could literally see 50,000 exchanges pop up within a year. This may be one of the key drivers to push Bitcoin to the next level.”

Press Release: Can Crypto Next Actually Bring Bitcoin To The High Street?

Crypto Next Wants To Facilitate The Mainstream Use Of Crypto-Currencies By Providing White Label Exchanges and Merchant Services That Actually Work

Isle of Man - July - Crypto Next wants to make it easier for people to start using and trading digital currencies by providing turn-key packages that include a company, bank account and white label currency exchange platform, instantly overcoming regulatory and technological barriers.

They are also looking to develop a trusted, multi-currency wallet allowing for instant and recurring crypto currency payments. Because the wallet is trusted, the payments cannot be cancelled during the block chain confirmation period and would essentially work like a prepaid card. So now “brick and mortar” retail outlets will be able to join organisations that already accept payment in bitcoins.

Watch Crypto Next’s video presentation here.

Check out the official website here.

By providing a regulatory and financial framework, Crypto Next says it can help any retailer in any country accept crypto-currencies in a safe and time-efficient manner, truly bridging the gap between crypto-currency consumers and mainstream retailers. The platform will also be used for remittance services, a market which not only has the potential to help millions of people in the developing world, but was estimated to be worth 440Bn USD in 2010, according to the world bank.

Crypto Next was founded by Israeli tech professionals, Sharon Greenberg and Asaf Azulay, and incorporated in the Isle of Man where the Government has openly welcomed digital currency companies; a development which is attracting crypto-currency based businesses since the announcement on the 10th June 2014. Crypto Next is the second cryptocurrency exchange company in the Isle of Man to be announced.

The company’s products are currently in development stages and, for this reason, Crypto Next is seeking seed funding via a pre-sale of its coin (Crypto Next Coin) based on the Mastercoin protocol, by means of a crowd sale, making it the first company to launch a coin for an exchange via a crowd sale. If it achieves its funding goals, it expects to launch its first product milestone in the form of a multiple Fiat currency and multiple cryptocurrency exchange which will go live in several languages, by the end of August 2014.

Beyond this, the company has big plans, aiming to launch its white label exchange before the end of the year, followed by a turnkey platform for merchants, an international remittance system, and even wallet hardware. Not just dreamers, Crypto Next’s founders have the experience, business know-how and computing power to actualize their plans.

“The cryptocurrency world has been dominated by technology developers such as programmers and designers” says Crypto Next’s CEO Sharon Greenberg, an IT based businessman of 15 years, “the digital currency market is ripe for business minds to take it to new levels and that’s exactly what we are going to do with Crypto Next.”

Crypto Next’s core features are real-world transparency and regulatory compliance. The organization operates under strict due diligence procedures to ensure the platform is not used for unsavory practices. Crypto Next has appointed Döhle Corporate and Trust Services Limited as Company Administrators, and intends to appoint Grant Thornton as auditors, as soon as funding is secured.

If Crypto Next indeed manages to achieve its vision, the ramifications are mind-bogglingly extensive. As Ron Gross, Executive Director of the Mastercoin Foundation says in his statement about Crypto Next “With their solution, we could literally see 50,000 exchanges pop up within a year. This may be one of the key drivers to push Bitcoin to the next level.”
