Q&A from KuCoin

Q: Please introduce yourself and the Carbon project to everyone.

Nobrac: Hello everyone! I'm Nobrac, one of the lead developers at Carbon! My formal background includes experience at Google and Mozilla working on their browser development and extension support. I have 15+ years working as a full-stack developer and 7+ years with web 3 technologies and have advised projects around privacy, decentralization and most recently AI! It's a pleasure to be with you all!

Carbon is a privacy-focused web3 browser, which automatically blocks online ads and website trackers by default. It is free and open-source and is developed by Carbon X Labs based on a custom fork of the Chromium web browser and its powerful Blink engine. Launched in 2016, to-date we have over 5.6M+ downloads and 1M+ monthly users who use Carbon Browser every day We are now launching a number of new features for web3 users which I will share with you later on in this AMA, including some exclusive contents!

Q: What makes you different from the others?

Nobrac: Carbon Browser offers main unique advantages over other web2 and web3 browsers. To name a few:

- 3x Faster

- 100% Privacy w/ multi-hop dVPN

- No public node list

- Decentralized and deployed on Akash Network and Polygon Edge

- Scaled by zkSync to keep tx fast

- Non-custodial multi-chain wallet

- Cross-chain swaps and bridges in our integrated wallet

- BrowseToEarn rewards allow everyone to earn Carbon tokens while they browse without giving up their identity or going through KYC.

We're not the new Brave browser (BAT); we're better!

Q: Why did you choose to launch with Poolz?

Nobrac: Poolz was our lead investor; they instantly shared our mission to revolutionize the web3 browser space and went all in!

On top of that, they opened many doors for Carbon in terms of partnerships and integrations, but with that said, we're grateful to all our launchpad partners and IDO investors, who are now up 27x. The ATH was 42x yesterday!

Q: What can we expect from CSIX and Carbon this year?

Nobrac: CSIX embeds our entire ecosystem! It's the only way to upgrade in-app to Carbon Pro, our premium browser offering enhanced security and privacy. CSIX also provides discounted fees when using the integrated swap and bridge feature on our browser wallet as well as discounted fees when using AdX, our self-serve ad marketplace to buy/sell display ads available for all browsers but optimized for Carbon browser.

We have a lot planned for Carbon this year. Here's a quick summary:

- Multi-chain wallet launch March

- Crypto News feed launch March

- New UX update launch March

- CSIX token bridge to yet to be announced blockchain

- Major AI partnership announced March

- New listing March

- iOS app launch Q2

- AdX launch Q2

- Mac OS and PC app launch Q3

Above is the entire CSIX ecosystem! Learn more here.

Q: Any exclusives you can share with us?

Nobrac: Today in a few hours, we'll announce a major partnership with a new L2 blockchain that's trending. A major AI partnership announced in the next 1-2 weeks will revolutionize how our 5.6M users search for Carbon. Lastly, we plan to burn CSIX annually until 50% of the supply remains, and we may do this earlier than planned.

Free-Ask from KuCoin Community

Q: Do you have a burning mechanism for project CSIX?

Nobrac: We burn CSIX profits annually until 50% of the supply remains! We're planning to do the 1st burn even slightly earlier!

Q: How powerful is the Carbon Browser against censorship that sometimes happens in different areas of the world? Will it be considered a VPN-ready browser? If so, which VPN will it use?

Nobrac: dVPN, with an upcoming partnership, allows for multi-hop censorship-resistant web3 browsing, all with BrowseToEarn!

Q: What is the guarantee that there is no possibility of our data getting leaked when we connect our wallet and that our data will not be stored anywhere?

Nobrac: Carbon doesn't require registration or KYC/KYB. We're completely decentralized and non-custodial. Therefore we never collect information in the first place. Also, we've removed trackers and scripts/ads from their browser and from the web pages you visit.

Q: Do you guys feel satisfied seeing your progress and achievements until now, when you reflect on the day you started this project?

Nobrac: Yes, we had no idea we'd get so much hype! But that said, we're not letting it get to our heads. Instead, we focus on the browser and web3 features to benefit CSIX holders!

Q: How safe is your crypto wallet? When we connect them to stake our CSIX token for some time.

Nobrac: It's a decentralized and non-custodial wallet and yes it's safe as we don't store your keys. We'll be announcing our partner wallet very soon!
