On Joining Velix.ID, he said:
As an investor in some of the major crypto exchanges in India, I think Identity is a major problem for the sector. While there have been blockchain identity startups that have done well, it is appreciable that Velix.ID has chosen a target market that is completely devoid of any blockchain identity startups, and that they have their own idea and implementation of the technology. I figure that India as an emerging global economy has a lot of potential that can be further explored with blockchain technology, and it will be thrilling to see the decentralization of Identity for a 1.3 billion strong population. I believe that Velix.ID has a strong team and that is why I am glad to be an advisor for this project!
Simon has been one of the earliest supporters of Bitcoin and has been involved in the industry pretty much since the beginning. His experience in the industry — having already raised a highly successful token sale — makes him a vital value addition to the team.
Velix.ID team gives Simon a warm welcome!
