They also believe that cryptocurrency investing is an incredibly disruptive force, and is often a superior option to traditional stock investing. The development of future Blockchain products is critical to the future of the technology, and the panelists agreed that developers are at a premium.
It was during this panel that Peter announced his step up within AxionV. He believes that cryptocurrency investment is the most advantageous path for investing going forward.
After the panel, there were networking opportunities aplenty, with great connections within the Blockchain ecosystem in New York City formed.
Peter was previously a senior advisor, but wanted to commit himself more to AxionV, and has now taken up a much larger role within the project. He has established himself as one of Blockchain’s premier experts and thinkers, has spoken at numerous conferences, and has become a go-to source for premier Blockchain publications. We’re delighted to have him contributing more to AxionV.
Peter shared his thoughts on taking up a bigger role in AxionV.
“I’m always on the lookout for new and innovative Blockchain ventures, but none of them excited me as much as AxionV. Crypto investing is a space that I’ve been living and breathing. It’s the future. AxionV’s vision was one that I could see becoming the gold standard of crypto investing. I worked closely with the team as a Senior Advisor for several months, and the rapid growth of the crypto world made it apparent that AxionV’s position would cause it to capture that growth. As an Advisor, I have watched the venture grow and develop, and I knew it was a smart decision for me to get more involved. Thanks to the AxionV team for letting me take up a bigger role in this groundbreaking project.”
He is now AxionV’s Head of Algorithmic Trading Strategies, which puts him in a position to apply his expertise to AxionV. All of us are excited to get to work with Peter in his heightened role, and are greatly anticipating our ICO which begins on September 16, and the implementation of the advanced trading strategies to follow.
