Thanh Le comes in as a NEM Australia leader based out of Sydney. Having 10 years of experience in education and a solid background in broking and insurance. Thanh provides monthly workshops and meetups in Sydney to those wanting to learn more about cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. Thanh’s long-term vision is to help every business from SME to globally recognised brands reduce cost and dramatically increase day to day efficiency and productivity with the implementation of blockchain technology.
Alex Saunders has been living and breathing Bitcoin in Australia since 2012. After discovering Bitcoin, he recognised most other cryptocurrencies offered little intrinsic value. That all changed when Ethereum showed the world that cryptocurrency could be so much more than digital money, the real value of blockchain technology had been unlocked. Since then Alex has invested in dozens of quality projects and his portfolio has outperformed leading funds 100 fold. He is known for his ability to pick projects that will gain real world traction and explain these in easy to understand terms is second to none.
