Community Manager of LikeMeetWork - Innovation Hub and Coworking Space
Trainer of Academy of SMARTBlock
An IT entrepreneur who specialises in networking computers and mobile devices, Winston graduated with a B. Sc. in Applied Science (Biotechnology) and B. Sc. in Computer Science with more than 20 years of experience in IT and cybersecurity (CNA, MCSE, CCNA and CIW SA).
He sincerely believes that blockchain and cryptocurrencies are the next technological wave that will revolutionise the world economy and cause massive disruption, just like what the Internet did 25 years ago. But he is also concerned that this new technology is far too complicated for the general public and that is what’s currently keeping it from mass adoption.
So he decides to learn as much as possible about blockchain and cryptocurrencies, and shares this knowledge with as many people as possible. Because he believes that knowledge is not power, only applied knowledge is power. Sharing knowledge is, in fact, the ultimate source of power.
