About the Author

In 2013, Antony became so interested in a niche online currency called Bitcoin, he left a conventional banking career to join a little startup called itBit. itBit is a bitcoin exchange, a website where clients can buy and sell bitcoins, and was one of the first wave of venture capital funded companies in the nascent cryptocurrency industry. After itBit, Antony privately consulted to clients mainly in the finance and consulting sectors, writing papers and running workshops to explain this new technology to curious professionals. In 2016 Antony joined R3, a financial industry consortium created to collaboratively explore the benefits of blockchain technology. As Director of Research, he explores and explains the evolving concepts and technologies to clients, policymakers, and the public. Antony currently sits on the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission’s FinTech Advisory Group panel. Before bitcoins and blockchains, Antony was a technologist at Credit Suisse in London and Singapore having started his banking career as an FX spot trader at Barclays Capital in 2007. Antony lives in Singapore with his wife Sarah and their two children and blogs at www.bitsonblocks.net.
