The SportyFi team has been strengthened by one of the most vocal and recognizable advocate of the cryptocurrency world, Charlie Shrem. Charlie will join the team as an expert advisor on the technology and especially the business aspects of SportyFi, using his years of experience on projects in the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

Charlie Shrem

Charlie started investing in Bitcoin in 2011 as a college senior, and is a founding board member of the Bitcoin Foundation, founded in 2012 with a mission to standardize and promote Bitcoin. He also founded one of the first cryptocurrency start-ups, BitInstant, with the goal of simplifying transactions on the Bitcoin network and bringing them closer to a non-tech audience. Since May 2017, Shrem is the director of business and community development at Jaxx.

“I like projects that are applying the blockchain outside of the financial sector — and sports is an industry ripe for a revolution.”

He is one of the most well-known names in the cryptocurrency community, and he frequently advises and supports new and interesting blockchain projects. He agrees with the SportyFi vision and will help us immensely in developing our platform and bringing it to both athletes and sports investors.

Charlie joins a well rounded team of experts in their respective fields, also consisting of several notable sports advisors and ambassadors, including Roberto Carlos (FIFA World Cup winner and UEFA Champions League winner), Primož Brezec (former NBA player and Cleveland Cavaliers scout), Peter Prevc (Ski Jumping World Champion and Olympic medalist) and many others.

Welcome on board, Charlie!
