You’re also hosting the blockchain economic forum and it’s the end of WEF. And all everybody’s talking about is BEF right now. Tell us a little bit what’s been happening over the last couple of days. You know, there’s a lot of chatter out there about what you’re doing at LAtoken and how successful you guys have become. So, give us a recap on, on what, what some, you know, we have to get some, some headlining guests and you had some amazing talking points. Give our audience a little bit of an insight.
Valentin Preobrazhenskiy (Founder, LAToken): 00:47
LAToken is a digital asset exchanges took 20 by a coin market cap, daily trading, volume of recreated transport and money. And asset markets. And we organized a blockchain economic forum to gather politicians, economists, TNG regulators to discuss how this market should work. They are completely new trans-border story money and ISIS are now available everywhere where internet is available, and several billion people can get access to this. They do not have access to wifi and the banking system nowadays, they have access to all of the currencies and the assets on our exchange. And this blockchain economic forum made a few sensations. One is the sensation for me personally is that president Bulgaria organize it, a blockchain meetups. And here’s a big fine blockchain here. Tell this on our blockchain forum.
Matt Bird (Show Host,Traders Network Show): 01:48
Super nice one. You know, I actually, I saw a little bit about that. I also saw some of the other interviews that you had on your website. Do you want to tell us a little bit about what you guys went over on, on, on those panels?
Valentin Preobrazhenskiy (Founder, LAToken): 01:59
So, first panel was about crypto markets on block chain. It was started for by president of Bulgaria. He believed that our ERP union can have a payment system on blockchain. And there was also discussion. He for it is a crypto market should be available to retail clients or only to institutional or only two qualified investors. This was a big debate about our rights to participate for people who may be not as educated as qualified investors.
Matt Bird (Show Host,Traders Network Show): 02:44
Well, this is a terrific topic for you guys, especially in getting this stuff out there. I mean, we’re starting.
to see a consolidation of technology and crypto exchanges and some regulation, bringing them, bringing them together a little bit. The decentralization is incredible. I believe we saw Tim Draper’s interviews. We asked to see something. With you and then the AI machine, which was outstanding. That was, that was one of the coolest things I think I had to come across. But listen, we’re running short on time. Could we tell the audience little bit about what’s up next? For LAToken, I know you have a few more events coming in in the rest of the year in 2019.
Valentin Preobrazhenskiy (Founder, LAToken): 03:18
Yeah. We have events in London and in Taiwan. It looks like Taiwan government is going to cooperate with us and we will bring the VC crowd entrepreneurs investors to their capital. And we will launch the board of governors to manage supply on cryptocurrencies from emerging markets and we gather high-profile economies to this board.
Matt Bird (Show Host,Traders Network Show): 03:47
So our retail audience and our NASDAQ audience sits out there watching. Can you tell everywhere that you go to find out more about LA token? Do you have a website?
Valentin Preobrazhenskiy (Founder, LAToken): 03:56
Yes. Our website is LAtoken.com. LAToken is a currency. It’s a coil for trading. That token is our company name. It started from “liquid assets tokens”. So anybody who has internet can access it and open an account and get access to instruments which are available in his country and in most of the countries script is available. And if he wants to trade securities tokens, he needs to get through KYC to be qualified for the straight in. And here is a big debate for our forum that there are some people who are considered as well educated and well Siddiq have access to venture. I said class, which is a 20/20 plus percent. So reach you get richer and those who are less has less access to education and money. They don’t have a chance to learn about this by trying making mistakes. And it’s easier for regulators to cut access rather than make a fraud prevention regulation or markets and break to circulation or in Western education,
Matt Bird (Show Host,Traders Network Show): 04:58
You guys are helping solve that problem.
Valentin Preobrazhenskiy (Founder, LAToken): 05:17
It’s not our main focus, but we think that there could be a big, big benefit tempter for governments, for nations because they may want people, you’ll have who have skin in the game, who invested in the future of the economy. And companies, they start to understand how news, how actions of politicians, regulators influence the economy and influence valuation of their portfolio. So they start to connect future visa today’s actions, and they became a more educated citizens and a better voters. So they elect, so they predict better their real benefit, which politicians can bring to them. This change incentives for politicians polices are more sustainable.
Matt Bird (Show Host,Traders Network Show): 05:58
We’re out of time, but you and I are going to sit down for a one on one exclusive. And we’ve got more content coming up in a little bit. Right now we have to cut to commercial break. You’re watching the Traders Network Show on Equities.com. Don’t go away. Valentine is coming back for a sit down one-on-one inside. Because it’s getting a little cold out here. Don’t go away.
