Bancor, a protocol that enables built-in price discovery and a liquidity mechanism for tokens on smart contract blockchains announced today the addition of Brock Pierce to the Bancor advisory board.
Mr. Pierce is Co-founder of venture capital company Blockchain Capital, and a long-time blockchain industry entrepreneur, investor, and thought-leader. He joins a long list of respected advisers who are experts in their fields, including Tim Draper of Draper Associates, monetary architect Bernard Lietaer, and open source governance visionary John Clippinger, among others.
He also currently serves as Partner and Head of Strategy for EOS and Block.One, which recently launched the largest token allocation event to date.
“I am excited to join the Bancor advisory board and provide guidance and insight to such an innovative team and protocol. A lot of what I see in blockchain promises to get us as an industry from A to Z. As an investor and entrepreneur.”
“I am constantly on the lookout for how we get from A to B. An automated liquidity solution could pave the way for the kinds of innovation we are only dreaming of now. Turns out the B is Bancor.”
Galia Benartzi of Bancor said:
“There is no higher sign of support than a fellow entrepreneur joining our advisory board, after digging into the project with the team over months. We have already learned a tremendous amount from Brock’s experience in the space, his recent BCAP Token Allocation Event, and his efforts to bring standards and also mainstream understanding to this nascent space. We are thrilled to have Brock on board and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship as this ecosystem and project evolve.”
Mr. Pierce will advise the company on strategy, communications and token market dynamics. He joins separately from and in addition to his investment in Bancor’s (BNT) token sale through Blockchain Capital, announced last month.
