BullPerks admin: Now we’ll move on to the next part. Let’s now open a channel for questions from our community members.
Stark: When browsing to earn $CSIX will be live in the Carbon browser?
Comu Shull: Hello, and welcome @mrnobrac 🤝 a quick question from me please 🙏
There are so many browsers relying on Webkit and Blink, what influenced your choice, and have you considered creating your own engine?
Froth: Hello @mrnobrac! Is there any proof of your claim you’re 3x faster than Chrome and Brave? Thanks for your response in advance!
Hüsnü Çoban: Hi @mrnobrac! Will $CSIX token stay on BNB Chain or expand and become multichain? Should we expect Ethereum next?
Marius Short: Are there any CEX listings on a roadmap?
Nobrac: Thanks for your questions! So…
Q2/Q3 this year, but hopefully sooner.
We use Blink too, but we’ve customized it to make it faster and lighter, which is how we achieve 3x faster browsing. 🙂
Stark: Thank you for your answer!
Nobrac: Another great question, thanks. We have a proof/data section going up soon where we use speed tests to show you this.
Rick Daniel S.: How are you guys planning to generate revenue?
Nobrac: Eventually, ERC20 (ETH and Matic) and maybe OP. We will have more details soon.
Simich: Is there a benefit of holding $CSIX tokens while you are browsing with Carbon?
Marius Short: That’s great. Thanks a lot. Looking forward to it!
Nobrac: We are already through integrations with Affinity, Google search partner and Yahoo integration.
Yes, there are benefits of holding $CSIX while browsing:
1. Staking (up to 12% yield based on how many you hold);
2. Unlock Carbon Pro (premium browser with more privacy and faster rewards).
Comu Shull: Have you reviewed the flow and goanna rendering engines? The former is actually made with performance in mind.
Rick Daniel S.: Why is there a gap of 9 months for iOS and PC versions and browsing to earn?
Nobrac: iOS should be Q1/2. Mac OS and PC should be Q2. Browse-To-Earn Rewards by Q3 latest once the above ports are live. We will let you know for sure!
We’re built on a custom fork of the Chromium and Eyeo SDK, so it might delay our roadmap if we switch engines.
Simich: Thanks for your response! Is there an “easier” way to buy $CSIX (directly through the Browser)?
Nobrac: Not yet. There will be once we’re listed on a DEX/CEX (URL redirect, and once our wallet goes live, you can buy/trade directly in the browser.
Comu Shull: Thank you so much for your response 🤝🙏
Rick Daniel S.: When is the ETA for a wallet? Can we use extensions?
Nobrac: By Q2.
Nobrac: Eventually, yes, that’s on our roadmap.
Simich: Thanks 👍
BullPerks admin: Let’s wrap it up; if you wanna add something, please mention it! @mrnobrac
Nobrac: Thanks to the BullPerks community, and a happy new year!
