Lykke Corp, a global exchange marketplace and platform provider for emerging technology, has on-boarded Nick Gogerty. Working at the firm’s East Coast office, Gogerty will take on several roles.
Gogerty is the founder of SolarCoin, a token that represents kilowatt hours of solar energy that can be traded on the Lykke exchange. He also co-founded and was CTO of healthcoin – a project for using economic incentives to reduce the global diabetes epidemic.
”There is a global revolution going on,” says Gogerty, “that combines blockchain technology, finance, and positive social change. I believe Lykke has the vision and capability to play a significant role in shaping this revolution.”
Gogerty previously worked at one of the world’s largest global-macro hedge funds, Bridgewater Associates, as a senior business analyst. He has been involved in risk analysis, forex trading, and software development for more than twenty years.
”Lykke is building a massive platform for growth,” he added. “Much of that work isn’t public yet. My near term job is to support Lykke’s platform by finding the early partners and new products and services that will deliver exponential growth across geographies, business sectors and customers, from individuals to institutions.”
