HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Veridium Labs, an environmental blockchain technology company that is collaborating with IBM to build tokenized carbon credit markets, announced today that Jaron Lukasiewicz has joined its advisory board in a leadership role. Jaron, the CEO of Autonomos Capital, brings years of experience in the blockchain space to the Veridium Advisory Board, which already boasts impressive members from the industry such as CNBC’s Brian Kelly, Hazem Danny Al-Nakib, Alex Lightman, and Yunsoo Andre Kim.
Jaron has been a blockchain entrepreneur since 2012 when he founded Coinsetter, a leading digital currency exchange in the United States and Canada. Coinsetter was eventually acquired by Kraken in 2016. Since then, Jaron has worked with several high profile blockchain projects through Autonomos Capital, advising their management teams on challenges commonly faced by companies in the burgeoning industry.
Autonomos Capital is a firm that supports companies using blockchain technology to bring about positive social change in the world. As its founder and CEO, Jaron works with upcoming blockchain companies and connects them with relevant people in the industry, providing strategic industry insight and advice in tandem. Jaron recently served as an advisor to Nucleus Vision and to Agora, a project creating tamper-proof blockchain voting technology to enable fully verifiable elections. With its focus on reducing carbon emissions to combat climate change, Veridium is strongly aligned with Autonomos Capital’s core mission of enabling projects with a positive social impact.
Veridium’s unique solution for issuing carbon credits will transform them into a new type of tokenized digital asset that can be traded and utilized with less friction, addressing problems associated with using carbon offsets today such as: expiration dates, price variations, and multiple verification standards. Whereas the traditional process of offsetting corporate carbon footprints can be arduous, Veridium’s blockchain solution automates this process and makes transaction reconciliation easy. Many regulators, institutional investors and consumers have all demanded that companies improve their social and environmental governance standards. Veridium’s solution helps companies meet these requirements in a more transparent and efficient way.
“We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Jaron will be joining Veridium’s advisory board,” said Todd Lemons, Chairman of Veridium Foundation, “He is an important addition to the team, not only because he brings expertise to the table, but also his work with Autonomos Capital lines up perfectly with the mission and goals that we are trying to achieve by bringing the carbon credit background in the industry will help promote Veridium”
On his partnership with Veridium, Jaron stated, “There are not many teams in the crypto space with as much experience and competency as Veridium, especially one that is addressing an issue as important as global climate change. I can’t think of a more worthy cause to devote my time and resources.”
