“It will change everything, it’s not just an investible product, it challenges the way we do cross-border payments, remittances, financial settlement, supply chain operations, KYC, voting and more. There hasn't been a better time for this, and the distressed global socioeconomic situation is illustrating that".

A natural entrepreneur, Alex started coding at the tender age of 13 and his natural gift for absorbing information rapidly, he immersed himself in the world of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies early on.
