Blockchain banking startup Humaniq has opened up a new office in London, expanding its international team that until now mainly operated in Moscow and Luxembourg. It was launched to further the reach of Humaniq across the global fintech ecosystem and develop partnerships ahead of its Initial Coin Offering (ICO) fundraising which starts on April 6, 2017.
Humaniq’s London office has been created with the support of Diana Biggs, an Industry Advisor at the UCL Centre for Blockchain Technologies and a published author on the use of emerging technologies by non-banks for financial inclusion. She previously served as VP of Growth and Partnerships, UK & EMEA, for digital currency platform Uphold.

“London is the perfect location for Humaniq,” said Biggs. “As a global Fintech hub, it allows us to keep our finger on the pulse of the market and build out partnerships with startups and corporates alike for our API and platform growth, connecting the community to our advanced technology offerings from our Eastern European branch and our network of global Ambassadors across Africa and Asia.”
London-based Dinis Guarda is joining Humaniq in an advisory role. Guarda brings over twenty years of experience in business and digital transformation. A strategist, curator, programmer and producer, he has worked with major global organisations. Humaniq Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Richard Kastelein will also be working with the London team on communications and strategy.
In addition to the London team, Alexander Perkins, an associate at Deep Knowledge Ventures, joins Humaniq as Vice President covering the American market.
