SpringRole is delighted to welcome Alex Waters, co-founder and head of ELM Labs, on board as an advisor. Alex has been an active member and entrepreneur in the Bitcoin and Blockchain ecosystem since its inception.
Why we chose Alex?
With Blockchain technology being at a nascent stage, it is important to have someone with a very sound understanding of the intricacies involved for us to leverage the most out of it. Having advisors like Alex who possess subject matter expertise that he does, will push us forward in this field. It isn’t everyday that you meet someone who has contributed to the Bitcoin core code!
Moreover, Alex is an entrepreneur himself, having been involved in the creation of various companies apart from his own as well. We believe that his presence on our advisory board will prove to be indispensable in developing the company and product.
