Mr. Jeff Koyen brings wealth of experience in high tech, blockchain and cryptocurrencies
VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA (OCTOBER 31, 2017) – 360 Blockchain Inc. ("360" or the "Company") (CSE: CODE - FWB: C5B) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Jeff Koyen as a Strategic Advisor to focus on the company’s business development. 360 Blockchain Inc.’s leadership team sponsored and participated in the successful Monaco Growth Forum Blockchain Summit in London and Monaco, October 17th and 19th respectively and is providing an update on the corporate mandate.
“We are thrilled to welcome Jeff to the 360 team,” said Mr. Brian Keane, Director. “Jeff Koyen is an award-winning journalist and entrepreneur who has been active in cryptocurrency and blockchain as an investor and trader since 2014. As a media strategist and advisor, Jeff is valued for his keen eye for emerging trends, and he has a proven track record of launching new digital ventures for both start-ups and legacy media companies,” added Mr. Keane.
Mr. Koyen is a graduate of Rutgers University. He has served as CEO and Founder of Assignmint.com, Editor in Chief of New York Press, Deputy Editor of Forbes Traveler, Editorial Director & Creative Strategist at Vocativ and News Editor of Mansion Global (Dow Jones). As a journalist, his bylines have regularly appeared in the New York Times, The Guardian, New York Post, Wired, New York magazine, Crain’s New York Business and others.
Additionally, Director Brian Keane provides this update on 360’s mandate going forward; “We are convinced that blockchain technology provides unparalleled opportunities for investment and growth. We are looking to invest in 4 to 6 companies within the space. Interest has been high, and we have multiple proposals in our hands. We are completing a thorough due diligence process and expect to conclude our first deals in short order. The equity positions we will take in blockchain technologies will be ones we have evaluated to benefit most from our expertise and capital, and those having tremendous upside. For further clarity, investing directly in ICOs does not fit our mandate, but the blockchain technology as it relates to cryptocurrencies overall is a strong fit.”
