Blockchain’s Reaction to Mt. Gox

Blockchain’s fundamental design is based upon us having no access to customer funds or keys. This is achieved by making all transactions occur in the end-user’s browser, “client-side” with open-source and auditable software.

As CEO of the world’s most popular Bitcoin website and wallet, he finds himself in the position to give back to the educational institution that helped inspire, motivate and shape him into who he is today. It was the business leadership classes, coupled with professors’ mentoring that prepared him to challenge conventional ideas and become a leader in evolutionary finance.
