His vision can be found in a recent interview with Dinis Guarda. “My core vision is having a mission for the company. Accubits as a company has seen phenomenal growth since its inception 8-10 years ago. It worked for companies like Nasa, USGS, building custom capabilities and blockchain systems. It has a very audacious goal which is the core with which we operate. The idea is that we believe any tech has the capability to get humans out of mundane tasks. With that in mind, every project that we have touched to date has transformed lives. That’s my journey”. “Blockchain for me represents the next wave of technology. Blockchain is a layer on top of these existing platforms and apps and it can be used and integrated into every sector that uses digital means for their business. Fintech is just the best example of a sector being boosted by blockchain as blockchain’s many characteristics would allow for faster, more secure, and more efficient transactions”. “Social media plays an important role in people’s lives and they offer us a way to connect to each other but also to gain visibility for our businesses. They are a powerful tool that needs to be used wisely and with purpose”. “There are still many people who cannot see the difference between blockchain and crypto, which are different things. And that’s one of the things that I always try to highlight, the separation between the technology and the product. Understanding this is the beginning of truly widespread blockchain adoption”.
