Cornucopia is proud to announce that tZero’s Joe Cammarata has joined the company as Chief Market Strategist. Joe will be helping the Cornucopia team bridge the gap between traditional finance and the crypto industry.
Joe began his career at Datek where he pioneered NASDAQ market orders. While at Datek he developed an internal cross that would eventually become the Island ECN. He was instrumental in orchestrating the growth of Datek Online – which was sold to Ameritrade for just under $1.4 billion.
Joe then co-founded Sonic Trading and led the company as CEO to a successful acquisition in 2004 by the Bank of New York. Until recently Joe was the CEO of SpeedRoute, and president of tZERO.
Cornucopia founder Carsten Klein says:
“Joe and I have worked together for several years, and he was heavily involved in building the PTN platform with me. I am excited to have him as part of the team on the Cornucopia project”.
Ignite co-founder Christopher Cousins says:
“Having known Joe and Carsten for some time, I know this is the dream team to take Cornucopia to market. For us at Ignite, we look forward to Cornucopia using our tech to offer pre-IPO opportunities to the crypto market”.
Accessing the IPO Market with Cornucopia
Cornucopia will be built on the Ignite Ratings’ platform which is already well into its Beta phase. During the crowdsale, Cornucopia’s token holders will buy “Horn” tokens that will give them access to their platform. Users will have to hold Horn tokens in order to participate in giving ratings and opinions on a variety of pre-IPO assets.
When a high rating is achieved for a particular asset, the Cornucopia linked Index will make an investment. Those Horn token holders who have actively participated by rating that asset will be rewarded with a % of any trading gain made.
As information regarding pre-IPO opportunities is extremely limited, Cornucopia is also providing a much-needed resource to the investment community.
Although ICO dates have yet to be announced, Cornucopia has hinted that the pre-sale could commence as early as the start of September.
