I have spent many years researching monetary and distributed systems innovation with a focus on cryptoassets and Blockchain technology. I have a background in traditional equity analysis which I am now applying to the Fintech industry within the scope of Blockchain and cryptoassets. I am also a researcher at the University of Cambridge where I still teach classes on cryptocurrencies and distributed ledger technologies.
Cryptoassets are a completely new beast, meaning there is an endless amount of data and research that still needs to be obtained before we really begin to see the technology more widely adopted.
Being an academic and researcher on an emerging industry, being able to be a part of formulating the academic course structure and material for the first university taught class on Blockchain technology in the UK was a great achievement of mine. Furthermore, it is always a humbling experience to be able to help educate more people on cryptoassets and the wider adoptions of Blockchain technology.
The resiliency of cryptoassets is an attractive feature. The scarcity, the transparency, the programming of cryptocurrency to do things such as smart contracts, are all features that are attracting great interest from companies looking to adopt blockchain technology.
Mosaic solves some of the most pressing problems in cryptocurrency asset acquisition: unreliable and insufficient data and research, and a non-user friendly marketplace structure. Once our ecosystem is populated with reliable and quantifiable data we can really begin to see the wider applications develop. Traditional metrics don’t apply to cryptoassets, with Mosaic’s ecosystem of data and research, we should, in theory, begin to better understand how these digital assets operate more clearly. From here, we can begin to develop a more clear framework to better understand how to evaluate them.
