Below is our recent interview with Eric Vogel, Co-Founder at Circularr:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Circularr is a patented blockchain ecosystem focused on the development and incubation of sustainable crypto assets underpinned by the value of recycled commodities. The first asset will be backed by plastic recycling and the value of rPET plastic called Circular Plastic Coin or “$CIRP”. The $CIRP asset revolves around the development and launch of a decentralised recycling ecosystem to streamline interactions between consumers, organisations, recyclers, and brands by adding full transparency to the recycling process. This will help to decrease pollution levels, eliminate green washing and drive consumer behavioural change by commoditising plastic waste. Our ambition is to help individuals and organisations treat plastic waste as a commodity instead of waste.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: As for the recent capital commitment from GEM Digital. This commitment will allow us to sell our native tokens via a drawdown arrangement after we list on an exchange. This will provide us with a facility for further liquidity for growth, R&D, marketing etc.
In addition to the GEM announcement, we will also be attending the European Blockchain Convention, as we have been shortlisted as one of the 10 finalists for the best early stage blockchain startup in Europe.
We are also about to go live with a few more pilots with some new partners in the coming months. I can’t comment on this further, but more info will be released soon and I will be able to provide you with more information at that time.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: As for the next 6 months we are:
- Planning to conduct our token generation event (TGE) along with launching our native asset $CIRP on at least one tier 1 exchange.
- Roll out a number of pilot programs in the United Kingdom, North America and Australia with some of our other partners which will be named in the near future.
- Continue to scale and grow the ecosystem, look at expansions of the team and R&D side of our business, continue to invest into additional partnerships and infrastructure.
- Continue to develop and look at piloting our Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) integration and pilot programs with some of our government partners.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: One of the great things about Circularr, that people may want to know about, is that we have a deflationary asset that is underpinned by the value of recycled plastic. Circularr is creating a global “recycle to earn” ecosystem in territories where a DRS does not exist while working to integrate with existing DRS as well.
We are currently looking for recyclers and other partners that we can continue to pilot and grow our ecosystem.
