InfoCorp Technologies Appoints Maximiliano Cañellas as Chief Technical Officer
Singapore — 28 September 2018: InfoCorp Technologies appoints Argentine Maximiliano Cañellas as Chief Technical Officer to manage the company’s technical strategy and roadmap, plan and implement new technologies, and lead the development of Sentinel Chain to greater height.
A seasoned blockchain developer with strong technical background and over 14 years of IT experience, Maximiliano, a.k.a. Maxi, is recognised by his peers as an innovator who constantly finds new solutions to optimize business processes.
Before entering the blockchain development space, Maxi spent 10 years in information security consulting. He was greatly influenced by a talk by highly revered cryptocurrency security researcher Sergio Demain Lerner on “A mysterious trip to the origin of Bitcoin”. He has since channeled his passion and energies to blockchain development rather than Bitcoin, in recognition that its potential real word use case was not only for payment processes, but the decentralized trust that the system can offer, and solve various technical, operational and legal processes.
In 2015, he co-founded Cryptologic as a blockchain fintech consultancy in Argentina. Whist working on blockchain notarisation for the Argentina government, he stumbled onto Sentinel Chain, and immediately grasped the incredible technological and social impact that it could attain, and the rest, as they say, is history.
“Maxi has established himself as a talent in the blockchain world and I am delighted that he has agreed to step into the role and take Sentinel Chain to the next level with speed.”
Roy Lai, Founder and CEO of InfoCorp Technologies.
“I am incredibly honored to take on the role of CTO for InfoCorp Technologies. This is for me an amazing opportunity to work with some of the newest technologies around, i.e., Blockchain, Smart Contracts, and in the process of doing what we are doing, we are providing people with an opportunity to unlock dead capital and through technology, bring them out of financial exclusion”. Maxi enthuses.
In his leisure time, Maxi enjoys reading technical writings, math and economics related literature. One of his inaugural lectures on this topic is “Bitcoin In depth: A cryptographic journey” (Spanish): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_qWl7_p96g.

Taking a unique approach to the last mile problem of financial inclusion, the Sentinel Chain model establishes livestock provenance through the creation of livestock insurance on blockchain — the registration of livestock provenance on blockchain provides the unbanked with a new opportunity: the real possibility of accepting livestock as ‘collateral’ for loans.
