CR Council Candidate Interview: Nenchy

1. Since you are running for your first term, please introduce yourself to the community. Tell us a little about your background, prior experience, and personal vision for Elastos and Cyber Republic.

I’ve dedicated 25 years to sales, which is, even today, my daily passion and drive.

I have a BA of Science in Administrative Sciences with significant experience in various business environments. I’ve the attitude of an entrepreneur, with skills in business networking, sales management, customer insurance, negotiation, investment portfolio management, along with background in FMCG distribution.

I am simple 40-years old guy with two ears and one mouth, so I always try to use them in proportion.

I used to work for Diageo company, one of the world’s largest beverage producers, as well as working for some of the biggest international financial and insurance companies.

My career started in sales before I started my own financial and insurance agency, where I got precious entrepreneurial experience.

I am always people-oriented, responsible for employees, constantly coaching and providing customer service.

One of the job interviews, where I got in the final round of two candidates, included a simple statement with a question by the company owner:

“We have another candidate that has a decade more experience in our industry; he’s a plug & play guy – so why should I choose you over him?”

My answer was, “You are looking at a guy who is capable of selling on a simple piece of paper this promise: ‘If you pay me, each month, $100 on your policy account for the next 25 years, I promise you’ll get back your money with interests.’ So, being good at that, how hard can it be to sell anything you can hold, see, or taste as a physical item, or onboard to an industry I have no prior experience in?”

The company owner was amazed by the answer and gave me that career opportunity that changed my life forever.

I joined the Elastos community back in 2018. As I’ve shared many times, ELA was my first crypto experience and my very first crypto love. As they say, you never forget your first time.

I’ve closely followed Elastos and its development, and after more than three years, I’m still very excited about its vision and mission that is yet to be accomplished.

Professionally, I am not an experienced tech guy, so I don’t know what it takes to code a great app or to build a network carrier, but I am capable of bridging technical solution aspects to the real user experience, creating passion and desire behind the benefits that apps bring to day-to-day life.

I live under simple philosophies: “the giver gains” and “walk the talk,” which intrigued me to join this election with the vision of matching great Elastos technology with a wider global user experience.

2. Would you say the design of suggestions and proposals, and the CRC in general, has been effective? What could be improved?

The general idea about Cyber Republic is amazing. I even can remember the day of its inception. I am sure the future will be (again) far more decentralized, so having Elastos vision (tech) on one side and the needs for a world of decentralization on another is what gives Cyber Republic great meaning in its existence.

We still have some room to improve further, some true DAO areas and CR independence, which was already addressed by the community and current CR council members.

The first step to giving data back to people is to provide power of decision-making to the people and call them Cyber Republic.

Ideally, we should have a perfect triangle of Owners, the Cyber Republic, and a World of opportunities. Single but interconnected entities following the same vision – a new web 3.0.

3. What contributes to the Elastos ecosystem as a whole have you made? What does unique background lend to the CR Council?

I always tried to be an active and constructive community member and point out any improvement areas I saw as opportunities or obstacles for a different, faster, and even more decentralized future. I have run the Elastos Slovenia Twitter account and been a true Elastos advocate in my region.
Lately, I’ve been helping as moderator for the Universe Protocol team and in CreDA telegram community.

4. Why should the community vote for you? Please share your near-term goals for the CR.

I am always interested in what can be done, not that much in what can be said or written in a book. I will do my best to bring all my professional experience and connections to bridge amazing Elastos technology to real-world use cases.

Can I make that happen? As an individual, not a chance.

But if we organize as a great 12-member team along with EF trust and support, then Elastos can make it and will make it! We have amazing technology; now it’s time to bring it out and let the united CR bring it to the world!

Politics are not for me, so please don’t vote me for that reason.

I have lived as an entrepreneur, have been a constructive Elastos community member, and now I would like to complete the missing puzzle on behalf of the community and all Elastos supporters, and, on behalf of the future!

5. Who else would you endorse for being on the Council with you?

It is not that much about individuals, but what the new CR will be capable of achieving as a team!

During the past three years, I witnessed many great persons and teams. Some of them are still with us; some pursued other endeavors, but today, the strongest council team by far is the Orchard team. When such exceptional individuals merge as a team, then you have the Orchard team.

I am especially happy to see Donald Bullers on the list as well, as his Elastos ride was never a peaceful sea, and yet he and the Tuum team never gave up! Respect, Donnie!

6. Is there anything else you would like to add?

My relationship is based purely on trust.
I failed many times in my life but learned how to get up.
My personal drive: wake up, drink coffee, work hard, help others, have fun, repeat.

I always take pride in getting the “impossible” done!
