Bogdan’s blockchain journey started in 2017, working as a Financial Analyst at Cyprus Investment Firms. Due to constant requests for cryptocurrency investments, Bogdan started looking for educational blockchain consultancies which he could recommend to individuals seeking to learn more about this technology. Not being able to find a service of this kind, Bogdan decided to create Universal Crypto (UC).
The vision and mission of UC were originally to facilitate blockchain adoption and awareness, with an emphasis on enlightening the people of Cyprus and the rest of the world about the benefits and opportunities that the blockchain industry presents. The next step in UC’s journey was the introduction of whitepaper audits, finding another missing gap in the blockchain space. That subsequently led to the inclusion of whitepaper creation services in UC’s catalogue.
Bogdan also launched the Bitcoin Club Limassol last December, to start building a community composed of cryptocurrency enthusiasts from all over the island. This community has since been growing, producing positive results. Bogdan was also the Project Lead and Moderator for the iCoin Summit.
