The Session Chair for Bitcoin Wednesday’s 6-year anniversary on 3 July, 2019 will be cryptocurrency pioneer Alexander Vasylchenko, one of the most accomplished innovators in the industry. He is the CEO of Sugi, an NFC card designed for cryptocurrency transactions, and the former CTO of Mycelium, a pioneer in Bitcoin applications. At Bitcoin Wednesday on 5 October, 2016, he presented his work in bringing blockchain technology to the energy market.
After four years with Mycelium, Alexander became the CTO of Grid Singularity, the developer of an open source platform based on blockchain technology that enables decentralized energy data exchange. The Grid Singularity solution enables distributed and tamper-proof storage of energy data that gives full control of the information to the party who generates it. Numerous applications — for example, energy data analysis, smart grid management, green certificates, energy trade validation, and investment decisions — can all be built on this decentralized platform. During Bitcoin Wednesday Alexander discussed some of these examples and how they facilitate highly granular transactions for energy and renewable certificates.
In addition to his work with Grid Singularity, Alexander also founded Sofitto, a startup which merges blockchain technology into a conventional banking card, a solution that provides an integrated store of value, enables hyper-secure data management with zero knowledge of the user’s data and no transaction costs. He has a PhD in electrical engineering from the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium.
