11. Thoughts from Director of Business Development, Steve McCullah

We have always made decisions based on the long-term outcome and this was no different. After much deliberation and under the advice from industry experts, we have made significant changes to the previous direction. We believe these changes, although extensive, could give us an incredible advantage over our competitors for years to come.

These core changes include:

- moving Apollo to DAG consensus

- the complete rebranding of Apollo

- new whitepaper and tech paper

- a major focus on academic partnerships

- a stronger push in Africa

- a higher emphasis on wallet usability

- a primary concentration on the three biggest blockchain use cases (tokenization, decentralized applications, and file storage)

- expanding our team to increase marketing capability

- strategic exchange listings
