Q: Please briefly introduce yourself and @iMe_ai to our community?
A: My name is Alex Barhat co-founder of iMe. iMe is a Smart platform with the Telegram-based messenger, Crypto Wallet, and DeFi tools. The central idea behind the project is the empowerment of Telegram users through the functions of DeFi allowing people to send cryptocurrencies easily in a user-friendly interface.

It offers all of Telegram’s features as well as some exciting new tools and settings such as crypto wallets, Neurobots, a built-in Google translator, a functional cloud with albums, advanced folder functions, transcribing voice messages to text. Using iMe you don’t have to change your messaging environment since you’ll have all telegram contacts available in our app. Thus, there’s a huge potential for growth, cause we involve the users to try the upleveled features in the habitual environment.

Q: How do holders of the $Lime token benefit in the ecosystem? What power within the governance model do individuals hold and what are the basic requirements to participate?
A: Token holders will get access to different privileges in the app that users without LIME won’t have. They will include: The voting system. Lime token holders from around the world will have a say in the development of the ecosystem and can suggest or influence the decision-making process depending on their stake. It also includes a Tier system, details of which will be disclosed later. Lime token holders will get access to Airdrop. It will represent a simplified Airdrop system. Users with LIME in their accounts will make blockchain snapshots at a date defined and receive partners’ tokens. There’ll also be the opportunity of yield farming. Thus, Lime token holders will be able to earn tokens of our partners through smart contracts. Among other benefits, some new features in the iMe app will be available only to users with Lime tokens in the account.
To participate, you only need to have a certain number of Lime tokens on your account. It will become possible to get Lime tokens during IDOs or after listing on DEXs. Btw, iMe has already successfully integrated Uniswap in the app. As soon as Lime token is issued and listed, users will have the chance to get it. All the details will be announced on our official channels. Follow our socials to learn about any updates.
Q: Is your project a local project or a global project? Can anyone use your services from anywhere in the world? Are there any restrictions of using your service?
A: iMe was developed as a global project and our community is the proof to it. Anyone living in a country where the Telegram application is not restricted can use iMe as a safe and convenient tool for communication and their finance management. We also have an international Telegram group where conversations are conducted in different languages and each participant can easily understand and reply messages typed in languages they don’t know. It’s possible due to our built-in translator in chats. Join https://t.me/iMe_ai% to get more insight on the application from our actual users.
Here’s a geographic statistics on our users:
Q: Security is always most important for a users. Can you tell us about your platform security? Have you done any audit via any audit platform?
A: Security is in the list of the top targets for iMe. We talk openly about the fact that we don’t have access to any users’ data including names, phone numbers, conversations, and do not store and transmit it anywhere. All this exchanged data is stored on Telegram servers. The iMe wallet exists separately from the iMe Smart Platform. In this case, only the device has access to keys and funds, so users can control this data by themselves. The wallet enables a PIN code for password encryption for added convenience. No servers are involved in this process.
Q: IME Messenger & Crypto Wallet app currently supports ETH and USDT chains. Are you planning to integrate popular chains such as Binance Smart Chain and Polkadot and Uniswap into your ecosystem?
A: Certainly, we’re going to integrate Binance Smart Chain and the team is working on it. Going forwards, we’ll integrate Polkadot and several other popular blockchains. Uniswap was embedded a short while ago. Some other DEXs will be added as well. We try to customize our ecosystem in a way each person may find it really convenient for personal use. This is among our top priorities today.
Q: Token burning is the best way in order to control token emissions and price. Do you support token burning?
A: We do not plan to burn tokens because the number of our app users will be increasing constantly. Telegram has over 0.5 billion and many of them are potential iMe users, and we plan to have payback, but not to burn.
Q: What are your priorities for 2021? Do you have any roadmap?
A: we’ve set many milestones denoted in our roadmap. Just take a look at it.
We have 2 teams of developers and two main directions of work. The first one works on the crypto part of the project — we are awaiting BTC, and Binance Chain integration, and then gradually we’ll add 1INCH, Pancake and Polkadot. The second team is occupied with communication features development, and here we are looking forward to implementing new opportunities to manage channels in the app and of course — the updated Neurobots.
Q: What is the role of tokens in the ecosystem? Where can users buy it now and what is it for?
A: Lime token is a utility token of the iMe Smart Platform. This is an Ethereum token. The Lime usability will be wide enough and extend over time. It will include:
1. The voting system. Lime token holders from around the world will have a say in the development of the ecosystem and can suggest or influence the decision-making process depending on their stake.
2. A Tier system TBA.
3. Airdrop. Lime token holders will get access to Airdrop. It will represent a simplified Airdrop system. Lime
Tokens holders will make blockchain snapshots at a date defined and receive partners’ tokens.
4. Yield farming. Lime token holders will be able to earn tokens of our partners through smart contracts.
5. Some new features in the iMe app will be available only to users with Lime tokens in the account. All these aspects will be announced later. The more partners iMe has, the more privileges Lime token holders will get. Lime token is the main and only token of the iMe Smart Platform necessary for different operations like exchanges for different coins/tokens or USDT/USDC. It’s the number one currency of the project. Any iMe user will be able to buy Lime and exchange it on Uniswap, Pancake, and 1INCH to be integrated into the app. Users will need Lime tokens for many exchange transactions in iMe. The emission of Lime tokens is limited to 1 billion and this is the final number of the tokens in the system.
Q: What strategy will you implement to bring non-crypto-natives into your ecosystem? How do you keep a balance between developing the technology and also improving the value of your token?
A: If you try our app, you’ll see that these strategies are already being realized, bringing DeFi tools and lot of communication features to non-crypto and crypto societies.
Q: Each successful project has interesting stories behind it and hardworking of course, So can you share with us one of those interesting stories? What iMe name stands for?
A: Surely, we agree that behind each project there’s a story, we’ve been developing the app for more than 2 years and a lot of things happened! But we think the most interesting story about iMe is ahead!
