Blockchain Marketplace Particl Adds Charlie Shrem As Advisor

Job Appointments | January 10, 2018 By:
Decentralized marketplace Particl has added bitcoin evangelist Charlie Shrem to its advisory team.
Particl is a DApp built on top of the bitcoin codebase and uses a proof-of-stake protocol, which is an alternative to the proof-of-work algorithm used by many other cryptocurrencies. It allows users to stake their coins and earn interest on them. The exchange anticipates being open to its own native token as well as other cryptocurrencies.
“I’m excited to be working with Particl,” said Shrem. “As I see privacy, fungibility and ease of use as the main pillars for any crypto. What if there were no needles in the haystack?”

Particl uses bitcoin as its base, creating a privacy-oriented variant of its blockchain design. It modifies the vetted protocol.

Project founder Ryno Mathee said that with Shrem’s help, they will be able to quickly grow their vision and potentially improve upon it with his added input. “We are excited to get some input from an industry heavyweight, Charlie’s influence and experience will help us grow tremendously.”

The team plans on releasing the alpha version of their marketplace in the beginning of 2018.
