Tim Brückmann, Ambassador Meetup Organizer:

Tim recently joined the ranks of Cardano Ambassadors as a Meetup Organizer. He is the marketing mastermind behind IAMX, a pioneering Self-Sovereign Identity provider on Cardano. His unwavering dedication to the platform is evident in both his daily work and his successful organization of previous Meetups. As a newly appointed Cardano Ambassador, Tim is eager to contribute his skills and enthusiasm to furthering the growth of the Cardano ecosystem. Thank you, Tim, for your contributions!


Alright, Let’s Dive Right In!

1) Tell us a little about yourself. What is your background?

  • I initially completed an apprenticeship as a specialist in economic and tax advisory professions, followed by graduating with a degree in Business Administration.

  • I have worked at various international consulting companies.

  • I specialize in strategic marketing and sales.

  • I have been involved in cryptocurrency around the clock since 2021 as a founder and advisor.*

2) How did you get interested and involved with Blockchain/Crypto?

Developers from my old company told me that I should buy Bitcoin, and I followed their advice.

3) Why Cardano?

*- Setting up stake pools is much easier and more cost-effective compared to other chains.

  • The funding mechanisms on Cardano are unparalleled.

  • Emphasis on Decentralization and Governance.

  • Some friends invested in ADA before I did and assisted me in configuring the pool to produce blocks.*

4) How are you contributing to the Cardano Ecosystem as an Ambassador?

*To strengthen Cardano, I aim to bring as many businesses and institutions to the platform as possible. Through my professional activities over the past 30 years, I have developed an extensive network that I can now leverage to strategically place information about Cardano. Additionally, as a member of various business clubs and networks, I am well-positioned to inform them effectively about Cardano in my roles as an ambassador and entrepreneur.

For instance, in the past, I have successfully guided the following projects to Cardano:

  • (initially launched on Ocean, I introduced the project to Cardano and connected it with my Cardano contacts)

  • The renowned artist Flying Förtress originally planned to launch his NFT collection on Ethereum, but I was able to assist in shifting it to Cardano.*

5) What is your future vision for the Cardano Ecosystem?

By harnessing its research-driven approach and robust Proof of Stake mechanism, Cardano might focus on enhancing scalability, interoperability, and user-friendliness to support a wide range of industries including finance, healthcare, and education. Additionally, it could expand its ecosystem through partnerships with global organizations, aiming to drive real-world blockchain adoption in developing regions.

6 ) What is your personal message to the Cardano community?

*1. Wallets will be as essential as browsers! As such, identity data should reside solely in your wallet, not in any data silos, regardless of their design.

  1. Aim to establish as many connections as possible to determine who you can truly collaborate with to create added value for Cardano.

  2. Seek an external sparring partner, ideally a successful entrepreneur, to critically discuss your future decisions. While the boomer generation may not seem as trendy, they often possess invaluable business knowledge that can be crucial for success.*
