After months of non-stop pondering on the technology, he began to question why it wouldn't leave his mind, and started to realise what it really was - a revolution. A trust revolution. Just as powerful and if not bigger than the internet could ever be. While being an active cryptocurrency trader, building a startup and investigating further use cases of blockchain technology in the logistics industry, Kreaan endeavours to be at the forefront of understanding when it comes to cryptocurrencies and blockchains, and ensures that it is a topic of conversation at any event.
