Who are Centrality? 

According to CEO Aaron McDonald, who is our speaker, "We're a venture studio that partners with leading innovators in key industries to create a marketplace of applications. These applications allow consumers to manage everyday tasks and experiences using peer-to-peer transactions – all via one login and using blockchain-enabled infrastructure.

"We’re one of the leading, blockchain venture studios in the world, with a growing team of 75 people across Auckland, London and Melbourne. We’re backed by a global investor network who understand our vision – to help the world transition to a blockchain-enabled future."

Centrality recently sold US$80 million worth of cyber tokens in six minutes and Aaron thinks that Centrality could make the internet more fair.

"Your data is owned by four big internet companies and they use it to make huge profits – they also use their power to shut down competition. We believe the Centrality marketplace will put people back in control of their data and allow smaller companies to succeed by working together."
