The recent AMA sessions have shed more light on Apollo Fintech.
Many of the products will create use case for APL. The products will also increase the resources (revenue) available to push marketing and development.
According to Steve McCullah:
Most of [the products] will use Apollo in a direct way, such as being powered by Apollo Blockchain. I believe all of them will have a very significant impact on Apollo’s value and potentially price.
What will happen when our products are live is you will have the ability to look at each one and determine the possibilities for yourself. A lot of it is obvious if you read the news at all, much of the time their needs are public. The one thing that I can say is the majority of governments are interested in use cases revolving around a blockchain-powered currency and bank-to-bank transfers. The honest truth is the use of any one of our products by any government would provide an unprecedented use case for Apollo.
Apollo is prioritizing payments in Africa.
… that is a major priority. We have been in conference with a number of central banks to design a product that would be superior to what is available now. It will not only be for Africa, but it is a focus.
AMA #3 explained the KYC process.
We will have a withdrawal without KYC for those conducting normal crypto-to-crypto trades. The good news is that even when KYC is necessary, one of our biggest benefits will be lightning-fast approvals, such as those needed for KYC. We intend on offering the fastest customer service in cryptocurrency.
The 2020 roadmap will be released soon.
We will be releasing a company-wide 2020 roadmap that will incorporate more than just Apollo mainnet milestones on our new site. It will be quite a bit more exciting than it has been in the past.
Estimates will be very conservative, so you will be able to get an idea of the maximum time it will take to release each element. Unfortunately, R&D estimates are the best that we can do, however we are getting into more use cases that are not built on blockchain but utilize blockchain. Those are much easier to plan and estimate accurately.
Apollo (APL) all-in-one currency combines nearly all features of mainstream cryptocurrencies into the fastest blockchain in the world. Boasting features and advancements such as the first implementation of database sharding, as well as adaptive forging, atomic swaps, two-second blocks, encrypted messaging, decentralized marketplace, decentralized exchange, decentralized applications, and decentralized file storage, Apollo stands as the most feature-rich cryptocurrency on the market. And one of the most advanced.
