Thank you Barış for kindly agreeing to this interview.
What do you think is the appeal of crypto? Any hot topics that you have been following lately?
The most appealing part of crypto is the technology behind it and its decentralized structure. Crypto enables people to achieve freedom in action and use cases when it comes to money, values, NFTs and more. Importantly, crypto brings to the fore the desire and pursuit of freedom inherent in human nature, inherent in us.
We are following all the hot topics actually, we have a big team for this. But if I need to give some examples for hot topics lately; Metaverse, NFT, DAO, Web 3.0.
The ApolloX DEX launched in November 2021. Have you tried it? What are some reasons you would trade on DEX?
Of course we have tried it. We like new platforms and we think we need to give them a try. As I answered in the 1st question, the decentralized structure of crypto is always important for us.
What do you like about ApolloX?
I like the team. They are very helpful. ApolloX is very new and only entered the market recently but they are improving and growing very quickly. The APX airdrop that they have made was the most fascinating thing, that I can say for sure.
What is a new feature you want to see implemented on ApolloX in the future?
I think a Launchpad platform for APX holders and discount for trading fees for APX holders are an absolute must in the future. And I also think that adding new trade pairs will add diversity to ApolloX.
What was your best trade on ApolloX CEX or DEX (% ROI or in USDT profit)?
My best trade was on DEX, BTC/USDT pair which has a %250 ROI.
Do you hold APX tokens? What are your thoughts or wishes for APX?
I hold more than 1 million APX tokens. As I said in the 4th question, a Launchpad platform for APX holders and discount for trading fees for APX holders should be considered in the near future.
What are other tokens that you currently hold or trade?
BTC, ETH, BNB, AVAX. I can say these four crypto coins. But I want you to know that I hold more than 100 different crypto coins.
Any tips for new crypto derivatives traders?
I think we are experts in this area. We have an educational video series on our Youtube channel about margin trading. People should use the calculator option to calculate their liquidation prices before opening any margin positions. This will help them not to be liquidated. And to not pay a lot of trading commission they should know about ‘Maker Fee’, ‘Taker Fee’, ‘Insurance Fund’.
Crypto coins are highly volatile, therefore margin trading can turn into a monster when it is used by people without any knowledge. But we know this is not true. Futures contracts are used in real life with or without physical delivery options and they are very useful.
As an example; An airline company can fix the fuel price at which they will buy fuel next year and they will physically receive the fuel on the specified date next year. The logic of futures contracts in real life can be reconciled with crypto futures/margin trades. This will help people to understand margin trades better and will help them to use margin trades effectively.
