“Coinnect is developing a disruptive sharing economy platform leveraging blockchain to innovate and allow direct interactions and exchange of services. Blockchain has enabled a new class of P2P platforms: direct cross-border payments, no platform fees, support for the “unbanked”, and trusted informations. These are just some elements of the innovations we will see in this field. I’m excited that what has been argued by experts like Vitalik Buterin and Don Dapscott regarding sharing economy and blockchain, is now becoming reality.”
Massimiliano Rijllo, CEO of Coinnect, expressed his pleasure for David’s addition to the Board:
