The relentless commitment of the developers, consistently introducing new features, further deepened his interest.

When queried about his active participation in both communities, the fervor was evident. “Seeing a dedicated team makes it easy to want to help,” he remarked. His involvement, however, isn’t just fueled by the teams alone. “Knowing how both teams have the potential to fill very needed in the ecosystems is an inspiration for being part of something bigger than myself. As well as the community of users and builders involved in both protocols.”

For the future of CIAN and Loopring, @the77helios exuded confidence. “Both protocols will have a bright future as key players in the ethereum ecosystem in the long run.” He further stressed the importance of education in the crypto/defi realm. “The more people are informed about how something works, the more sense it can make in the larger ecosystem”

@instiinct

🌟Attraction to CIAN and Loopring

@instiinct’s journey to CIAN and Loopring started in an unexpected way. He was following Loopring due to prior interests in traditional finance markets. Upon discovering a post from Loopring about CIAN, he delved into understanding CIAN more. This exploration serendipitously connected him to Chris, head of BD at CIAN, and their collaboration began. Highlighting his favorites, he says, “Loopring’s Social recovery wallet stands out, essential for newcomers. For CIAN, the flash repayments give me confidence in managing positions.”

🌍Community Involvement

Discussing his drive for active engagement, @instiinct voices his concern over financial disparities, “Crypto offers a path to more freedoms and financial independence, never before accessible to many. My role in these communities aligns with my desire to bring these technologies to more people.” Furthermore, he expresses, “Being at the frontier of technology, participating in these ecosystems aligns with my passions.”

💡Future Insights

On the potential of both CIAN and Loopring, @instiinct exclaims, “Both have MASSIVE potential for growth!” He applauds Loopring for its user-centric innovations and CIAN for simplifying yield opportunities in DeFi. “By creating a user-friendly platform for complex DeFi strategies, CIAN heralds a new age for personal asset management.” Additionally, he believes both platforms are positioning themselves for extensive user retention and growth.

🔍 A Broader Perspective

Zooming out for a macro view, @instiinct points out the infancy of the crypto realm, “With less than 0.1% of the global population in DeFi, we are still in the early stages. As these markets grow, crypto space expansion is guaranteed.”

@Wizking

🌟Attraction to CIAN and Loopring

@Wizking, initially a Superstonk Reddit user and $GME investor, transitioned to Loopring due to Ethereum Layer 1’s high gas fees as an NFT artist. He applauds Loopring for creating a digital economy on layer2 (zkRollups) where users maintain asset control. Loopring’s aim is to engineer top-notch zkRollup exchange and payment protocols on Ethereum, reaching users globally.

In the Loopring Community, phrases like “Be Your Own Bank” and “Not Your Keys, Not Your Crypto” are prevalent. Combining Loopring Protocol Technologies with CIAN’s auto-leveraging software will redefine standards.

The fusion of renowned Layer 2’s, particularly Loopring, with CIAN caught my attention. Loopring’s Smart Custodial Wallet tech combined with CIAN’s strategies are why I’m here. The supportive atmosphere in both Loopring and CIAN communities is invaluable.

🌍Community Involvement

“Our Community Motivates Me,” he passionately declares. Keeping the community at the forefront of every decision has been his unwavering principle, and it has consistently guided his journey.

💡Future Insights

@Wizking envisions an integrated experience. “Having a seamless auto-leverage setup within the Loopring Smart Wallet while utilizing tools from both Loopring and CIAN’s platforms would be amazing,” he shares. This integration would amplify capital efficiency by allowing other avenues of investing Loopring Coin (LRC) or other supported cryptocurrencies through high yield leveraging strategies, all on Loopring’s Premiere Decentralized Exchange, ensuring 100% Ethereum-level security guarantees.

🔍 A Broader Perspective

He really is adamant about keeping the Community First. He states that he personally does not settle for the status quo and persistently makes every attempt to better himself and his communities through education and taking time to listen. He feels keeping the leaders in tune with the communities wants, needs, and desires is a surefire way to be consistently successful.

Lastly, he shares that once CIAN integrates with Loopring’s Smart Wallet, incentivize Community members with a never-before-seen yield percentage or perk for testing the automation strategies that CIAN is known for!

“KEEP COMMUNITY FIRST

Empower One Another

Stay Cyborgy!”

Their stories tell the essence of what CIAN and Loopring offer and symbolize the shared hopes and aspirations of both communities.

It’s not just about technology; it’s about empowering individuals, fostering connections, and shaping a decentralized future. Together, as one united community, we stride towards realizing that vision!
