With technology already entrusted to secure digital assets, the company is generating revenue - and this new partnership has something exciting in store for the world of blockchain.
LONDON, June 5, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Oxford BioChronometrics, the NATO award-winning cybersecurity company that is helping ecommerce and advertising companies around the world better understand their human audiences and the nature of the fraud they are exposed to, is excited to announce that David Drake will serve as advisor for the company’s initial coin offering, or ICO.
Coins and tokens like these are a means to raise money for the company while providing investors with flexibility and easier liquidity than traditional models of fundraising. As a recognized leader in blockchain and cryptocurrency, David Drake will guide the company using his years of experience as Founder and Chairman at LDJ Capital, a multi-family office which deals in worldwide funds accessing over trillions in assets and maintains over 50+ global directors and family office partners.
“We are excited to welcome David on board as an adviser at this pivotal moment for the company,” the company’s CEO and Co-Founder David Scheckel told investors. “The global advertising industry is under siege from sophisticated intruders infecting the internet ecosystem. This ICO will help us raise the funds to expand better understanding of their environments to a greater number of clients. With our ICO benefiting from the experience and insight from a global leader in the market like David Drake, the good guys are about to get a whole lot better at the fight against fraud.”
