José Escudero— Marketing & Strategy at Infinitus Token

Mr. Escudero has developed his professional career as an expert in Managing Consulting and Corporate Finance (Mergers & Acquisitions). Along last years his advice has been the focus in advising Asian and European companies and organizations in their process to obtain all the benefits of the “new economy” and “Fintech world”.

He has been also working as a fashion, luxury and IT expert for the leading private equity firms like Harvard Investment Group, Advent, Goldman Sachs, etc.

Stefan George—Co-Founder and CTO of Gnosis
"The dxDAO"

Without a central governing body, decentralized trading protocols will be able to more easily sustain themselves and adjust when facing adversarial risks. Become a stakeholder in the futures of DEXs. With dxDAO governance, users of the DutchX trading protocol can become its collective owners and shape its parameters.

As a second-generation DAO designed to facilitate global, open trade, the dxDAO will likely have stakeholders which consist of individuals and projects with a strong track record in upholding the values of decentralization—who will collectively shape the future of accessible trade.

Silvio Micali—Founder of Algorand and co-inventor of zero-knowledge proofs
"Foundational technology impact"

Founded by cryptography pioneer and Turing award winner, Silvio Micali, Algorand solves the “blockchain trilemma” with a platform that delivers decentralization, scalability and security. Algorand provides a foundation for existing businesses and new projects to operate globally in the emerging decentralized economy. Algorand’s first-of-its-kind, permissionless, pure proof-of-stake protocol supports the scale, open participation, and transaction finality required to build systems for billions of users.
