STK Global Payments announced that Alex Tapscott will join the STK Advisory Board, providing strategic direction on the development and implementation of the STK token. STK is holding a Token Generation Event from November 13-24, 2017. A pre-sale will run from October 30-November 13, 2017.
Built on the Ethereum blockchain as an ERC20 token, the STK token will enable instant cryptocurrency payments at the point of sale — the first such solution to bridge cryptocurrency with retail transactions in real-time.
Tapscott is a globally recognized thought-leader, investor and writer focused on the impact of emerging technologies on business, society, and government. Alex is the Founder and CEO of NextBlock Global, an investment company actively managing a diversified portfolio of digital assets. Alex is also the co-author (with Don Tapscott) of the bestselling book Blockchain Revolution. Alex is a co-founder of the Blockchain Research Institute, a founding member of the IMF High-Level Advisory Group on Fintech, a founding member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on Blockchain, and a special advisor to Elections Canada.
“STK represents a great leap forward in how we spend, store and move money by making it easy for anyone anywhere to use cryptocurrencies and participate fully in the blockchain revolution.”
Tapscott will join an international group of industry experts and thought leaders serving as STK’s Advisory Board. Other Board members include Ethan Wilding, a founding member of Ethereum, Professor David LEE Kuo Chuen, a Stanford University Visiting Fulbright Scholar, Richard Kastelein, an award-winning publisher and entrepreneur and Chami Akmeemana, a Blockchain Specialist with multiple successful exits.
“Alex is a globally respected blockchain advocate with a deep understanding of the industry and its potential impact on the future of finance,” said Miro Pavletic, Director of STK. “Having Alex join the STK Advisory Board is a testament to the incredible potential of our STK token and its utility. We’re grateful to have him on board.”
