Anthony’s entire blockchain and cryptocurrencies investments have earned him a place on the Forbes list of the Richest In Cryptocurrency.
Exceptionally well-versed in cryptocurrency, blockchain, finance and business, he is an advisor to 15 companies, and as the inaugural Chief Digital Officer for the TMX Group, the parent company of Canada’s largest stock exchange, he explored ways to make exchanges operate faster and cheaper through blockchain technology.
