Jim Rogers represents a high-profile addition to Global Blockchain Technologies Corp.’s (CVE:BLOC) advisory board
SmallCapPower | October 12, 2017: Global Blockchain Technologies Corp. (TSXV:BLOC), a Blockchain technology stock, surged 23% to $3.00 on Tuesday after announcing the appointments of its new management team, which included Steven Nerayoff as Chairman, described as an early pioneer and leader in the Blockchain industry. Other appointments included Mr. Rik Willard as CEO, Mr. Shidan Gouran as President and Mr. Kyle Kemper as Chief Strategy Officer.
Mr. Steven Nerayoff is a prolific serial entrepreneur and attorney having founded six companies in both Silicon Valley and New York. He is an early pioneer and leader in the Blockchain industry and a senior advisor to Ethereum and Lisk and personally coined the terms “Gas” or “Fuel” to describe the functionality within Ethereum’s protocol.
Mr. Rik Willard is a pioneer in the Blockchain sector, as he founded the Agentic Group LLC., a 51-company federation on five continents supporting and developing the Blockchain and “Internet of Value” ecosystems through consulting, business development, industry events, and more.
Mr. Shidan Gouran is a serial entrepreneur who founded Nuovotel, one of the first and largest wholesale VoIP service providers of its time, Jazinga, developers of an award-winning unified communications system and Home Jinni, developers of the first Android based Smart TV platform.
In addition, the Company announced the creation of an advisory board consisting of the following members: Jim Rogers, Jeff Pulver, Gary Rubinoff, Mike Terpin, David Drake, and Manie Eagar.
Jim Rogers is an especially notable addition. He is a frequent financial commentator in the United States and also co-founded the Quantum Fund with George Soros, which went on to capture a 4,200% return in 10 years.
Global Blockchain Technologies describes itself as an investment company providing investors access to a basket of holdings within the blockchain space, managed by an expert team of industry pioneers. It appears to be a holding company, which would allow investors to participate in cryptocurrency speculation, ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings), and Blockchain technology startups.
Blockchain technology has been hot recently as some reports suggest that this development could be the biggest thing since the widespread adoption of the Internet. Global Blockchain Technologies stock should benefit, at least in the near term, from its relatively low number of shares outstanding (about 18 million), although investors should expect this number to grow substantially as the Company will likely need to raise much more capital for future investments.
From the start of 2017, Global Blockchain Technologies shares have skyrocketed more than 1800%, following the global surge in the prices of cryptocurrencies, and investor interest in Blockchain technology.
