German FinTech company The Naga Group AG announced today that Miko Matsumura, well-known crypto asset expert has joined NAGA’s board of advisors.
Founders and Executive Directors of The NAGA Group AG, Benjamin Bilski and Yasin Sebastian Qureshi expressed their pleasure with this latest development:
“We are delighted to have Miko Matsumura supporting the inception of our crypto-ecosystem. Miko brings in a vast experience and deep understanding of crypto-economies. The NAGA ecosystem will significantly benefit from his unique and revolutionary way of thinking.”
Miko Matsumura has claimed: “I’m excited about the Naga Group’s token sale because it has proven products, revenue and is already a publicly traded company (ETR:N4G). This gives the Naga group tremendous legitimacy and a very unique position in the industry. I am impressed by their well-designed token model based on real economic fundamentals and a solid pre-existing customer base which will produce what I call the tokenized flywheel effect.”
Miko Matsumura is the founder of the cryptocurrency exchange Evercoin and is a Limited Partner with the Pantera Capital ICO Fund, a $100M ICO-only fund. He is personally invested in FileCoin, Brave, CIVIC, Propy, Polymath, Celsius, Wala and Lyft. As Chief Java Evangelist for Sun Microsystems, he participated in the first wave of the Internet and is now fully engaged in the crypto-fueled Internet of Value.
A 25 year operating exec in Silicon Valley, Matsumura has raised over $50 million in capital for Open Source startups. He currently advises cryptocurrency startups like WiFiCoin, Guardian Circle (Decentralized Global 911 Emergency Services) and Hub (Decentralizing Professional Social Networking), Celsius (Ether Lending), Playkey (Gaming), Wala (Crypto Banking), and Pundi X (Payments). He is also an LP with Focus Ventures, a firm with over $800M under management, 9 IPOs and 44 exits.
Matsumura holds a Master’s degree in Neuroscience from Yale University where he worked on abstract computational neural networks. He leads the Crypto Underground meetup in San Francisco and will be speaking at the upcoming Token Fest as well as keynoting at ICOnference NYC, Blockchain Life in St. Petersburg Russia, Global Blockchain Summit, The Future of Money Summit, and Coin Agenda in Las Vegas.
NAGA will be launching its token sale in two stages – the Pre-Token Sale and the main Token Sale. The exchange rate for NAGA Coin is 1 NGC = $1 USD. Investors can purchase tokens using BTC, BCH, ETH, LTC, and DASH. For those wishing to use FIAT currency, EUR and USD are also accepted.
“Investments and trading are ruled and governed by banks and corporations that control access, operate non-transparently and always take a cut of your money. At NAGA we are about to change that. By introducing the NAGA COIN, we are on a mission to revolutionize the outdated banking sector. The financial markets are about to change, and we embrace that.” – The NAGA Group AG
