Anthony is a community organizer, venture capitalist, serial entrepreneur, and thought-leader in the field of virtual currencies, blockchain and decentralized cryptocurrency technologies.
Worldсore’s Initial Coin Offering quickly approaches $9 million as the team brings on CEO and Founder of Decentral, Jaxx and Co-founder of Ethereum, Anthony Di Iorio, as a Strategic Adviser. This is yet another great strategic move on Worldcore’s journey to bridging the gap between cryptocurrency and mainstream. The ICO is set to end in the first week of November.
The first of the three, Decentral, is a startup consulting and innovation hub
located in downtown Toronto, Canada. This already presents a major potential synergy for Worldcore because they are a more established company currently raising capital — a good amount with $9 million raised and 24-days left until the ICO ends. Worldcore could definitely benefit from Anthony’s expertise, experience, and vision — but I see a benefit in cultivating startups with Decentral that can further create synergies down the line with Worldcore.
Anthony and his team provide expertise to enterprises, small businesses and startups on the volatile, rapidly disruptive space of virtual currencies and blockchain technology. Anthony’s experience along with his strong team can surely contribute to Worlcore’s quickly growing team of 40+ employees. Remember, Decentral could provide their consulting expertise as a resource, but Worldcore would likely benefit more from working with other specifically identified startups within Decentral’s innovation programs.
This segways perfectly into his second affiliation — the team at Decentral are also makers of the multicurrency wallet, Jaxx. The great thing about Jaxx is that it supports many of the leading cryptocurrency blockchain platforms. In fact, it’s their “goal to offer as much choice as possible in the new, emerging world of blockchain.”
Why could this be great for Worldcore too?
For starters, Anthony was an Influencer for Deloitte’s Exponentials.xyz initiative. Secondly, Worldcore already has online bank account integrated into their platform. Not just that, but they were mentioned in a Deloitte report as one of the most innovative FinTech companies in Central and Eastern Europe. Deloitte is a leading consulting firm and tends to set the standard across the financial services industry; not a bad organization to get mention in a report from.
The potential synergy with Jaxx’s aim to serve across blockchains in addition to startups and affiliations associated with Decentral alone could be a powerful combination. Add in the fact that Anthony is a Co-founder of Ethereum and we could have a major shift in the financial services market. Ethereum continues to expand as more developers enroll in creating decentralized applications.
Worldcore is also a payments API provider so you could imagine creating a multi-chain wallet with a cross-chain API plugging into another exchange partner (Changelly, maybe?) in their network as the opening of a lot of new capital into the cryptocurrency markets. Here’s an article with the overview on how they aim to bring cryptocurrency mainstream.
Add in Worldcore’s innovative two-factor authentication methods and the story just gets more interesting. Security measures include FaceKey, a biometric authentication option that recognizes users by their faces; VoiceKey, a security instrument that authenticates customers by their voice; fingerprint, one-time pins, along with various other authication methods users can choose from to keep their accounts safe. This was a major reason they were mentioned by Deloitte — very innovative security measures. (Info found in the Worldcore White Paper and this article)
