Millennium Blockchain Taps Michael Terpin For Board of Advisorsbr>
Millennium Blockchain, Inc. has appointed Michael Terpin to its new Board of Advisors.
The company is an international holding company focused on investing in blockchain technologies and crypto-assets in financial markets, healthcare, crypto-mining and high-technology. The Company filed an amendment to change its name from “THC Therapeutics, Inc.” to “Millennium Blockchain, Inc.” on January 17, 2018, and filed a corporate action notification form with FINRA thereafter.
In early 2013, Terpin co-founded BitAngels, the world’s first angel network for digital currency startups, which gave birth in 2014 to the successful CoinAgenda series of blockchain investor conferences in North America, Europe/EMEA, Asia and Caribbean/LatAm. He co-founded early blockchain incubator bCommerce Labs; the Bitcoin Syndicate on AngelList and the Dapps Fund, which was a lead investor in the initial crowdsale for ethereum, Factom, MaidSafe and Storj.
He currently heads up the ICO investment committee for Alphabit Fund, a $300 million digital currency fund registered in the Caymans, and advises numerous blockchain companies and foundations, including Bancor, ICOBox, Zed Networks, Polymath, and LiveEDU.
Terpin has led the PR efforts for more than 150 blockchain companies and foundations, including some of the leading token crowdsales. Client successes include the launches of Aeternity, Augur, Bancor, Ethereum, Factom, Gnosis, Golem Network, Lisk, MaidSafe, Qtum, and Tether, as well as ongoing campaigns for Bittrex, Counterparty, Dash, Eos, Kraken, NEM, Neo, Storj and Shapeshift.
Prior to his exclusive focus on blockchain, Terpin founded Marketwired, one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive international newswires, for which he was a finalist in the 2000 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Originally known as Internet Wire and funded by Sequoia Capital and Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, Marketwired was acquired in April 2006 by Toronto-based media company, CCN Matthews, and is now owned by NASDAQ, which acquired it in February 2016 for $200 million.
“Blockchain is changing the world, and I’m proud to be a part of an organization that will be partnering with best-of-breed companies in blockchain, providing a channel for investors to easily invest in this area through traditional financial markets,” said Terpin.
The Millennium Blockchain Advisory Board will assist the company’s management team to source, review, and consider investments and strategic partnerships for the company. The advisory board will also provide additional ideas and support for new developments and assist to outline the strategic direction of the Company.
“We are excited that Michael has joined the Advisory Board as chair; he is a pioneer in blockchain, cryptocurrency and communications,” said Enzo Villani, chairman of Millennium Blockchain.
