In the latest episode of the Cheeky Crypto VeChain mini-series, Chris interviews Rosa Simioli, a product owner at VeChain. Rosa discusses her role in supporting developers and ensuring the delivery of efficient, community-approved products. She also shares her inspiration for getting into blockchain, VeChain’s sustainability and features, and her advice for newcomers to the crypto space.
Sustainability and Community Engagement
Rosa was drawn to VeChain due to its consensus mechanism and commitment to sustainability. VeChain uses a Proof-of-Authority (PoA) consensus mechanism, which is more energy-efficient than Proof-of-Work (PoW) mechanisms used by some other blockchains. VeChain is also committed to reducing its environmental impact through initiatives such as offsetting its carbon emissions and developing renewable energy solutions.
Rosa highlights the importance of community engagement at VeChain. The team welcomes contributions and suggestions from the community for improving the network and products. This ensures that VeChain is meeting the needs of its users and developing products that align with community priorities.
Role as Product Owner
Rosa’s typical day involves morning stand-ups with her teams, ensuring alignment, and prioritizing features based on community feedback. She is currently working on two main projects: a new rewards app for VeChain and an SDK to improve the developer experience.
Rosa finds the most rewarding aspect of her role to be launching bug-free products and seeing the excitement from the VeChain community. She is passionate about using blockchain technology to solve real-world problems and make a positive impact on the world.
Advice for Newcomers
Rosa advises newcomers to the crypto space to study blockchain technology, choose a blockchain that aligns with their goals, and reach out to the friendly crypto community for support and guidance.
The interview with Rosa Simioli provides valuable insights into the role of a product owner at VeChain, the company’s commitment to sustainability and community engagement, and its plans for the future. Rosa’s advice for newcomers to the crypto space is also helpful and informative.
