- Jed McCaleb is the cofounder of Stellar, a nonprofit financial platform designed to be open and accessible to everyone. Jed believes in consciously leveraging technology to reduce inefficiency and improve the human condition. He established Stellar in 2014 upon recognizing the broken state of the world’s financial infrastructure and the resulting resource inequity. Before Stellar, Jed created eDonkey2000, one of the largest file-sharing networks of its time, Mt. Gox, the first Bitcoin exchange, and Ripple, a blockchain solution for global payments. Jed is also an advisor to MIRI, a nonprofit that researches artificial intelligence for positive impact.
- Yoni Assia is the CEO of eToro, the world's leading social investment network. It's this young CEO's vision to disrupt the banking industry and replace it with a transparent online financial system for the benefit of everyone. Yoni holds a B.Sc. and MSC in Computer Sciences and is a Board Director of Meitav Dash. In 2012 Yoni was actively involved in the ColoredCoins project and is a founding member of the Israel Bitcoin Association.
