Co-founder and President, TenX
The TenX app is a godsend for anyone wanting to dip their toe into the brave, not-so-new world of cryptocurrency. It allows users to spend their virtual currencies anytime, anywhere and with real-time transparent rates. Julian Hosp, the 32-year-old co-founder and president of the company behind this app, managed to raise US$80m in TenX's initial token sale in June 2017. The Austrian-born entrepreneur was subsequently named one of the top blockchain and cryptocurrency experts by online media company, Influencive, in 2017. As if all this entrepreneurial work wasn't enough to fill his day, Julian is also a medical doctor by training and professional kitesurfer.
