Why did you start Volt X?

Let’s bring it back to blockchain, I’m curious about where you think this industry is heading this decade?

As the CTO of a fintech company (Sencha Credit), I can’t ignore DeFi and the transition to web3.0. What do you think about decentralization use cases in the authentication of one’s identity?

What do you think about mining cryptocurrencies and the effect on the environment?

What other industries are you excited about that have the opportunity to be adopted by the public right now?

What do you think about the duality of the hype? Obviously, there’s the bad side, the noise that pulls away from the admirable work being done, and there’s also the advantageous side where the hype keeps people interested.

At such a young age, you’ve already accomplished so much, so are you still interested in going to college?

Andrew Kirima Andrew was born in Kenya and moved to the US when he was 3. He graduated in the class of 2020 from the University of Arizona with a B.S. in Systems Engineering and a minor in ECE (Electrical & Computer Engineering). His entrepreneurial endeavors began senior year of college when he and some classmates founded Facade Technologies to sponsor their own Senior Design Project. They built a desktop application named Facile that can compile APIs to automate other applications. Right now, he is the CTO of Sencha Credit, an early stage fintech company, where they are working hard to develop the debit card that builds credit. Their mission is to empower everyone to build credit effortlessly and reach new financial heights! He loves to share his enthusiasm for the acceleration of technology on his blog, as he encourages entrepreneurship while exhibiting his passion for deeptech. Andrew understands that the speed of innovation is exponential, but he’s worried it takes too long for organizations to utilize new innovation, so his mission is to teach & demystify the complexity of deeptech to everyone. “Humans beings are evolving. Some believe we’re transcending into a new paradigm of evolution, and I want people to embrace that future.”
