Meet Fernando Sobreira: Klever’s Director of Blockchain Research and Development

Sobreira talks about the importance of an ecosystem in a crypto project, Klever’s new achievements, his personal ideas and more

There’s a quote attributed to Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft and technology mogul that says:

“The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don't really even notice it, so it's part of everyday life.”


This is a true statement if we take the time to analyze it because when highly modern and tech-oriented things enter our lives, we forget how they worked in the first place, and that is when magic happens.

For instance, most of the users don’t even know how the internet works programming-wise. But they use it anyway and they even can develop really amazing things on it through softwares and engines that they didn’t even create.

We can say that the same thing is expected of the Blockchain technology. Now called Web 3.0, it is revolutionizing the way we work and share information on the internet - but it’s still puzzling for many people.

Blockchain-rooted companies strive to bring ease of use into their daily business operations and develop ecosystems that are flexible enough to change and update without the user having to worry much about changing.

Here, in Klever, that noble mission has a noble man in charge: Fernando Sobreira, our Director of Blockchain Research and Development.

As a result of so many improvements and new features - including our very own blockchain - Sobreira has been busier than ever.


Maluh: Before we get into Klever’s Blockchain per se, I want to talk about something that’s been fascinating me for a while.

When we think about ‘Ecosystem’, we think about nature and living things in their circle of life. Nowadays, we recurrently have been hearing ‘ecosystem’ being related to digital environments and interrelationships in a particular unit of space.

What makes Klever an Ecosystem and why is this an important concept for our users to understand?

Sobreira: Everything we design in Klever is connected. As crypto/blockchain enthusiasts and veteran users, we know the user's needs and we work out of our way to provide the best experience for the crypto space.

And to fill this gap we are rethinking the whole Ecosystem and building the tools we need to fulfill your goals.


M: We repeated many times in our articles - and I particularly will continue to reinforce - that blockchain is not only for crypto.

The potential of this revolutionary technology is only at the tip of the iceberg when you relate it to cryptocurrencies’ transactions.

Would you say the same? In your words, what is blockchain capable of doing for our digital future?

S: Blockchain is a decentralized ledger designed to be immutable and tamper-proof. Digital currency (or cryptocurrency) is very suitable for this technology.

However, there are many other applications that can take advantage of these properties.

Games, registry, certificates and bonds are few of the examples I can think of right now that I don't see without blockchain in a near feature.

M: Tell us briefly about your history with Blockchain for a second.

This technology is quite recent, especially if we think that Satoshi Nakamoto’s whitepaper of Bitcoin was released in 2009.

How did you get into it and what caught your attention to make you want to work with this extremely new technology?

S: I've always been passionate about new technology and creating new things. But like most people, I also got to know about the blockchain because of cryptocurrencies and their high gains.

However, I didn't stop there, always looking to improve my knowledge, I invested a lot of my time learning about this new blockchain world, and today it is part of me.


M: Even with so much improvement in the last few years, many people are still apprehensive or even scared of using this new method and do not seem to be interested in changing their minds for now.

What do you think that scares people when it comes to Blockchain, especifically?

S: New things are always scary, the technical and legal insecurity, things you don’t know how it works, or if it works… You first need to understand so you can feel safe using it.

Nowadays most people that get into blockchain/cryptocurrency are looking for fast and high profits (which also is scary).

Other than this, the mass media channels choose to dramatize scam, hacking and theft cases that can happen in any business.


I've always been passionate about new technology and creating new things.


M: What are the practical changes for the user once the Klever Blockchain is released?

S: Klever blockchain is part of the Klever ecosystem, this means it will be integrated with our applications we have.

The result of this is that for users this transition should be seamless, there should be no apparent changes initially.

The notable changes will be in the new facilities that we will bring, such as easy ways to exchange tokens between the different chains, fast transactions and robust and espetacular applications (the kApps) that will unite businesses and applications from the traditional world to the fantastic world of blockchain.

M: How many people are involved in developing the Blockchain and what was the main challenge to Klever’s team to perform while doing it?

S: As an organic Team we are all connected, discussing new ideas and integrating our ecosystem, making everyone in Klever part of Klever`s blockchain future (100+ collaborators).

It's not an easy task to integrate everyone as we are continually creating new things, and this may be the main challenge that we have to deal with.


M: Can you explain in an easy way how our security will work in Klever’s Blockchain?

S: When we are talking about data assurance, the essence of blockchain works basically the same.

All transactions are packed into blocks cryptographically signed and in sequence depending on previous information. With this we can verify if any data has been tampered.

However, anyone can write a piece of code and publish smart-contracts in public blockchains. This code may or may not be verified, which may lead to some uncertainties in the environment.

Klever blockchain will work with kApp, applications written and maintained by the Klever team in native language, speeding up information processing and restricting possible malicious applications.


M: Finally, what do you hope for Klever’s next steps once the Blockchain, the Exchange and all the big news for 2021 are online and going?

S: Here at klever we have a motto `Your only limit is you`.

Our team is free to create and propose changes. That means that we are unstoppable, always creating and growing organically.

The Blockchain and the Exchange are just a few examples of what we are doing, but many more are already in development.

And not only new things are coming but improvements for what we have delivered so far. There is a trail of next steps that will surely make Klever a bright future.


I don't want a legacy, I just want to be part of this team that builds incredible and challenging solutions every day.


M: What do you expect to be your mark or milestone for your work in Klever?

S: Every result we have at Klever is shared with the team.

Even working 100% remote, everything we achieve is the result of teamwork.

I don't want a legacy, I just want to be part of this team that builds incredible and challenging solutions every day.
