Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): Let’s welcome Argon Team today for an AMA at BSC News, can’t wait to get to know more about the project! How are you guys doing today? @ahmetoznar @ibrhmkecici

AhmetOznar ARGON: Our day is going well. Thank you very much, how are you?

IBRAHIM KECICI - ARGON: We are good. Thank you. How are you?

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): i'm good too, really excited to find out more about argon!


Q1 Shall we start with an introduction of you and your team members and their respective experiences?


AhmetOznar ARGON: The main staff of our team consists of core developers. We are a really young and well-equipped team. Well-equipped people advise us on the points we are missing. In addition, we have our financial advisor, project consultant, marketing manager, community manager, tester and community leaders.


Q2 That's a good team with all the areas of expertise covered, so tell us more, what's your experience in crypto?


IBRAHIM KECICI - ARGON: We've done work in the software industry before. We took roles as a developer in the Ethereum network. Argon is our first decentralized project of our own. We have devoted all of our time to the project for about 4 months.

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): thats good to know an experience dev is on the project itself

AhmetOznar ARGON: Absolutely 🙂

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): how about @ahmetoznar ? are you a developer too ?

AhmetOznar ARGON: Yes true.


Q3 Do share with us what is Argon? Maybe a brief overview of the project


AhmetOznar ARGON: Argon is a decentralized freelancer business network. We established a bridge between the employer and the service provider. It works in a completely decentralized structure. We want to revolutionize the high commission rates demanded by central institutions.

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): i have used a similar service previously with a business in real life, I will like to know more about it, but before that another question first.


Q4 Does the name Argon mean something? what inspired the birth of this project by you guys?


IBRAHIM KECICI - ARGON: We were inspired by Argon gas, an environmentally friendly element. We were freelancers. We wanted to implement this project, as we have mastered the problems in this area.


Q5 Compared to like upwork, fiverr (which I had some interaction before) etc what makes Argon stand out?

AhmetOznar ARGON: The biggest difference is being decentralized. However, the lack of high commission rates. In addition, in these central structures, the laws of some countries can cause problems in payment methods. We are completely free!

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): wow that's good news for the freelancers and also the customers

AhmetOznar ARGON: We try to do the best we can


Q6 from the articles that I went thru, I understand that customers are the people who create a job ? and freelancers are the ones that do the work is that rite?


AhmetOznar ARGON: Yeah, absolutely right.


Q7 Will there be a limitation as to what kind of work will be approved ? Can it be like coding a token or create a unique NFT?


AhmetOznar ARGON: At the moment, we are not considering any confirmation mechanisms. Just like rarible etc platforms. But we can do it if it's needed in the future


Q8 How about an example of how the whole process, say I want to create a job, finding out the popularity of BSC News AMA (as an example), wanting to know the popular time of the day etc. How can I put this job up on Argon to find a freelancer to do it for me, until the step where they did their job and get paid.


IBRAHIM KECICI - ARGON: Of course. First of all, you log in to the application on Argon.run by connecting your wallet. You update the information on your profile and save it as a smart contract. Then you create the contract by writing all the details you request from the job posting page. We send data such as job title, details and price to the smart contract. The price of the work is taken from you and kept on the same contract. After the job is delivered, the price is transferred to the service provider with your consent. For dispute resolution, a jury called "Approver" is used. To be approved, you need to have 100,000 Argon and lock this amount. Approvers receive commissions from the works transferred to them in case of disagreement. This is a detailed and complex structure, so you can check out our whitepaper for all the details.

Q9 Tell us more about this Approver, is he from the team? or he can be anyone? or a group of people? because I remember in real life when I posted a job, the results came back with total mess and not related to what I have requested, worst of all I still have to pay for it.


AhmetOznar ARGON: Anyone who wants to be an Approver will have to keep 100,000 ARGONS in their wallet. This, in turn, will prevent fraudulent transactions. Approver assignment is performed in a completely random way. Just like the block miners

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): i see thats one use case of holding $ARGON, 


Q10 you mentioned about approvers receiving commissions, who will be paying for that ? and do we always need approvers? if the customer is happy with the work from the freelancer, can they bypass the approver?


IBRAHIM KECICI - ARGON: If the client approves the job, no Approver will be needed. Approver payments here will be covered by the 5% fund allocated to them. The algorithm of this payment plan is also included in the whitepaper. I recommend you to review.

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): thats great, this is a good way to cover both the customers and freelancer in case of dispute


Q11 How does Argon generate revenue for future development?


IBRAHIM KECICI - ARGON: We have a 5% fund pool dedicated to research and development. We can pay the expenses by using this fund. In addition, we have another fund that will remain locked at a rate of 23%. In case of demand, we can also use this way. In order to create a regular income model on this, our team is working on the NFT Marketplace. We are considering testing them in the near future.

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): thats good planning for continual growth for the project


Q12 Let’s talk about the use case of $ARGON, besides being used to become an approver.


AhmetOznar ARGON: Yeah, we're working really hard on that. Argon Token is a native token. It shows the value of the project. However, it will also be used as a payment method in job postings. We plan to improve the usage area in the future. We may have some surprises in this regard.

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): I can sense some RFI being built into $ARGON which will benefit the HODL mentality ... but thats just my guess

AhmetOznar ARGON: You're right in your guesses. There's work on that.

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): that will be a big use case for $ARGON


Q13 Security is one of the core concerns when we start investing or dealing in DeFi space. How safe is it in Argon when funds are handled, from job creators to wages for the freelancers. Is there any audits etc?


IBRAHIM KECICI - ARGON: All of our smart contracts are currently auditing by CertiK. Soon the audit will be finalized and we will share the report. We will also make updates for possible deficiencies. The security of the contracts is extremely important to us. Must Be SAFU, you know 🙂

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): yes totally agree on being SAFU


Q14 How do you intend to attract freelancers to the platform and also equally important how does businesses find out about Argon to look for the freelancers? What are the marketing strategies done so far?


IBRAHIM KECICI - ARGON: We do marketing activities in many areas. This issue is also important to us. Our project will prove itself after it is fully published. There are already a number of business partnership demands that have reached us. We want our investors to be patient in this regard. Argon is already talking about itself at very important points. Also, our not demanding commissions from freelancers makes us stand out to a great extent.

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): yes the no commission is a total winner!

IBRAHIM KECICI - ARGON: Yep 💪

Q15 How are other projects collaborating with Argon? Will there be staking or pool in Argon itself?


AhmetOznar ARGON: We have had talks with some platforms, but we want the product to reach exactly the point we want. We have some thoughts on staking. We are considering a second token that will be offered to investors who contribute to our liquidity pools. This will be in the form of a governance model. We want some patience in this matter.

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): that's great to know in Argon, development is always on going

AhmetOznar ARGON: Platform is ready, but we are waiting for Certik's report to activate it.


Q16 How are you going to educate some of the freelancers or employers to use crypto as payment? Cause I believe Argon will bring in alot of non crypto users.


AhmetOznar ARGON: After our project goes live, we are planning to do some work on this subject. We will provide doc pages and support services for this. In addition, we will make bridge integrations with some companies so that they can switch to fiat money. In other words, people who do not know about crypto money will be able to use Argon easily.

Crypto Shrimp (AMA Host): This will definitely bring in alot of funds from business owners to freelancers into DeFi

AhmetOznar ARGON: I agree with you

Q17 What are the roadmap for future development of Argon ?


IBRAHIM KECICI - ARGON: You can view our roadmap on our website. It may take a really long time to tell from here. https://bit.ly/3bQ6a1H

Q19 Lastly our famous question to end this section, can we have an alpha or juicy news that will be happening in the near future.


IBRAHIM KECICI - ARGON: With pleasure! Argon will soon update an NFT integration in addition to existing features. Individual designers will be able to sell products as NFT. In addition, we create a staking model that encourages investors to provide liquidity. We will also issue another token for the project's governance model soon. This means that the decisions to be taken by the project will be made by investors. We have great days ahead!
