Enterprise blockchain company Nuco today announced the advisory board for Aion, the first interoperable blockchain network and the framework allowing communication between blockchains.
Aion’s 11 advisors bring experience ranging from blockchain, finance, and technology to help guide the company’s mission to become the first network to power communication between blockchains.
Aion’s advisory board includes Ethereum co-founder Anthony Di Iorio, who founded Decentral and recently launched Jaxx. Joined by Di Iorio is John Lee, Vice President of Enterprise Delivery at the Toronto Stock Exchange. Also joining Aion’s advisory board is Salim Ismail, the former Vice President of Yahoo and the founding executive director of Singularity University. Ismail’s bestselling book Exponential Organizations has made him a highly sought-after consultant to top Fortune 500 companies on innovation and growth.
“Blockchains are one of the most important exponential technologies that will fundamentally change the structures of society,” said Salim Ismail, an advisor to Aion. “As these technologies have evolved, an obvious need has arisen to solve challenges of scalability and interoperability. Aion is that solution. I'm excited to be working with Matt and his team as they shape this technology for the future."
Di Iorio, Lee, and Ismail are joined on Aion’s advisory board by Jeff Pulver, VoiP pioneer and co-founder of Vonage; Eric Gu, CEO of ViewFin and founder of the Metaverse Project; Peter Vessenes, co-founder of the Bitcoin Foundation and managing director of New Alchemy; Dr. Moe Levin, CEO of global technology conference company Keynote; Steven Nerayoff, serial entrepreneur and advisor to Ethereum; Michael Terpin, CEO of Transform Group and co-founder of BitAngels; Simon Taylor, co-founder and blockchain lead at 11:FS and host of the Fintech Insider and Blockchain Insider podcasts; and former Telecom CEO and venture capitalist Tony van Marken.
“Aion is the key to unlocking the long-term potential of blockchains for the entire world,” said Matthew Spoke, CEO of Aion. “As we work towards that vision, we're excited to be surrounded by advisors from a variety of backgrounds and industries to help us reach our goal.”
Like cloud computing did in a previous era, Aion will connect compatible blockchains operated independently to allow the instant, global transfer and recording of data and value. Central to this, AION tokens are the fuel used to create new blockchains, monetize inter-chain bridges, and secure the overall network. AION tokens will be available in public pre-sale beginning October 3, 2017.
