“We feel very good about the portfolio of companies we’ve got at the moment,” he said.
Some of the startups Bitcoin Center has invested in include:
- Cryptos – A U.S.-based digital currency exchange powered by the AlphaPoint trading engine. It offers users access to deep liquidity and volume, leading-edge security and maximum performance.
- LiveryCab – LiveryCab’s system connects passengers to drivers by allowing passengers to enter their destination and drivers to bid on rides.
- Digital Asset Vending Enterprises (D.A.V.E) – A Bitcoin ATM, lightweight, secure, modular, open source and running as an Android app.
- Blockchain Apparatus – An incorruptible voting system designed on blockchain technology.
An adage in the Bitcoin world is that innovation occurs at a much faster rate than in other industries. This holds true for the Bitcoin Center, as they begin kick-starting new businesses.
In its first year, the Bitcoin Exchange hosted “every single important group or person in the Bitcoin world,” ranging from developers, corporate innovators and politicians to prominent nonprofit leaders, Lilic said. In its second year, it plans to expand operations by developing its portfolio of companies and “offering the market exciting opportunities.”
“Our objective,” Lilic says, “is to continue to be a force for positive change and innovation in the new blockchain paradigm.”
