Vassilis Nikolopoulos joins Zoidcoin Advisory board
Welcome to the advisory board!
We are not just a “Crypto Company” or an ICO.
ZCN ZOID LTD is a tech company providing blockchain solutions for the current business environment. This means that everything we build needs to be ready to compete with the solutions that are already being used in today’s business environment.
For the Zoidcoin Network we make use of our proprietary privacy and payment protocols to solve the data security and payment efficiency problems, while the inefficiency in advertising is solved through our reward-based communication model.
As our tagline suggests, we “Recalibrate Digital Commerce”, so essentially we are ready to support the giants of the immense retail sector with blockchain solutions.
Beyond the cool game theory powered interactions and blockchain protocols lies the cold reality where payments require receipts, a world where revenue streams and regulations will make the difference between succeeding and failing.
We are preparing for this world by surrounding ourselves with people who are already working on disrupting the status quo.
It’s a match.

I’m focusing in conversion methods of innovative research results into tangible products and services, that can offer solutions to significant global social problems having humans in the center. The secret is by correlating and combining existing/future technologies, sociology, behavioral science and research outputs, to solve current or future problems under the correct time-frame”
