Bloom, an Ethereum blockchain and IPF based end-to-end protocol for identity verification, risk assessment, and credit scoring has reported that Joe Urgo will join the team in an advisory role.
Joe is the co-founder of District0x, an Ethereum dApp decentralizing the world’s marketplaces. Prior to this, he founded Sourcerers.io, a consultancy supporting leading Ethereum-based projects. He previously spent three years as an Operations Manager for Coinbase. Before Coinbase, Joe was a derivatives trader for Three Arrows Capital, an international hedge fund based in Singapore.
Jesse Lerimgruber, co-founder of Bloom stated:
“Joe has been a friend an advisor to the Bloom project for quite some time and we’re excited to share some details on the relationship. Together, we are actively exploring the creation of a p2p lending district build on the D0xINFRA framework which leverages the Bloom protocol for identity verification and credit scoring. District0x is a network of decentralized marketplaces.”
“Projects like Bloom can create, operate, and govern. Powered by Ethereum, Aragon, and IPFS. We share a similar stack in Bloom as Bloom is also developed on Ethereum, Aragon and IPFS. This lending district would serve as a peer-to-peer driven marketplace for lending. An analogy could be made to LocalBitcoins. The district0x based lending district would allow anyone in the world to post a request for a loan and peers to review Bloom’s information about the loan without having to go through a financial institution.”
“Joe introduced Bloom to the concept of a weekly development update. District0x maintains a consistent, ongoing weekly report about the details and updates for the project which regularly draws a warm reception from their community. Additionally, Joe provided introductions to key artists, designers, and auditors to further support the Bloom project. Joe added guidance, direction, and advice on the creation of our protocol overview video.”
