The business world has a lot to keep up with as a result of the introduction of new technologies and amazing breakthroughs. Despite the paradigm shift, businesspeople are banding together to compete for the top rank in today’s fast-paced, constantly-evolving economy.
We encountered many fearsome warriors in our conflict, among them a business by the name of ChromaWay. ChromaWay offers a platform for blockchain-based asset issuance and transfer as well as smart contracts. ChromaWay has been developing smart contract solutions for the real estate industry in collaboration with the Swedish Land Registry and other organizations and financial firms.
Zara Zamani is ChromaWay’s Chief Solutions Officer. She is a wonderful illustration of an exquisite and charismatic leader, encouraging many aspiring businesspeople and enthralling the business community with her firm’s cutting-edge and exceptional services.
In a discussion with ChromaWay Chief Solutions Officer Zara Zamani. Let’s learn more about her business, its offerings, and her career path.
Brief us about the company, what inspired us to start the company?
With our relational blockchain technology, termed Postchain, ChromaWay was established in 2014. Postchain has shown to be a great platform for private corporate blockchain applications.
The company’s personnel and overall vision have expanded dramatically since then. In addition to our work with ChromaWay, a private firm, we have also introduced Chromia, a public platform with a rapidly growing ecosystem.
By offering transparent solutions that increase efficiency and decrease exploitation, we work to provide blockchain applications that are simple to use and add genuine value to society.
What are the products or services ChromaWay focuses on? How are your services different from those in the market?
Chromia is our public blockchain protocol. The defining feature of our platform is that it combines the security of a blockchain with the data handling power and flexibility of a relational database. Most blockchains in use today are very inefficient in the way they store and handle data, making them incompatible with the majority of large-scale applications (online banking, social media, etc.) that all make extensive use of databases in their design.
In addition, we use an innovative consensus model that removes the need for mining and greatly reduces the energy consumption and carbon footprint of our blockchain.
We will soon also launch Originals, our NFT protocol which differs from many existing ones by being dynamic, evolvability, mutability, attachability, and almost free of gas fee features.
Please tell us about your team.
Over 150 people from all over the world make up the global and diverse ChromaWay team, which was founded by a small group of individuals. On the team, we represent more than 20 different countries and speak more than 30 different languages.
Please brief us about your professional experience.
Well, my professional experience is not a whole different story to many more who made it right in their career. It is a lot about focus, hard work, learning to do smart work, and then working smart but hard. I am an engineer turned a leader. I started my career in the oil and gas industry as a hardcore field engineer.
My experience in the Oil and gas industry taught me to communicate effectively with a very diverse group of people in terms of profession, skills, education, culture, gender, language, and many more. It also toughened me up since it was a very male dominant industry.
However, after a few years, I felt isolated and not able to relate to where I wanted to head in my life which was to make a change in making the world a better place. That is when I shifted to the tech industry and founded a travel tech later turned into a fintech company and got myself into the whole finance world and eventually blockchain in 2015.
Today, I am a blockchain solution architect and work as Chief Solutions Officer at ChromaWay. I have had the privilege to design blockchain solutions in various industries and work with the most brilliant people. I am also a lecturer and a researcher in blockchain adoption at Halmstad University, South Sweden.
What are the key achievements of your business journey?
My greatest accomplishment is the self-assurance and faith I now have that I am on the correct road. In addition, I am a strong, independent, and empowered mother who is raising such a daughter.
In addition, I was named one of the top 10 significant women in technology by AnalyticsInsight in 2021 and one of the 21 women in blockchain you should know by FintechReview in 2021. In 2019, I was also one of the top 50 most powerful women on LinkedIn.
Any exciting project you would like to highlight?
The debut of a blockchain-based game and My Neighbour Alice are two fascinating ventures I can mention. The idea for My Neighbour Alice first emerged in 2020, and the ALICE coin debuted on Binance in March of that same year.
The game was intended to be an open-world, cooperative building game similar to “Animal Crossing.” The project’s objective has been to create a play-to-earn blockchain game that attracts casual players by focusing on a streamlined user interface and mobile integration.
Since 2021, there has been continuous development, and the first alpha season release is anticipated for Q2 of this year.
A new roadmap has recently been published following an aggressive expansion of both the development and operations team, and we are excited to be moving full speed ahead towards delivering a blockchain game that can cross over and appeal to crypto and non-crypto users alike.
Which is your favorite quote?
I have many favorite quotes but one that I always say myself is that: technology is as good as us, humans.
So, if we want a better world we use technology for the betterment which is not always the case because betterment is not always the end goal of all of us.
