The FUSION Foundation (http://fusion.org/), the non profit developing a new backbone and infrastructure for cryptofinance, announces today that key members from the finance world will be joining the newly formed Foundation Intelligence organisation. FUSION’s Foundation Intelligence team will develop cryptofinance theory in order to support future development, provide resources and key connections for FUSION’s adoption, and provide strategy guidance. As part of the launch of the Foundation Intelligence program, Daniel Petrozzo, Jeff Singer, Eric Weinstein, and Najam Kidwai, top executives in the financial and business sectors, agreed to take roles in the preparation for this new initiative. The Intelligence team will be established on May 17th during its first meeting in New York City, immediately following the Consensus 18 Blockchain Conference (https://www.coindesk.com/events/consensus-2018/).
FUSION is also announcing the creation of its ‘Industry Adoption’ group. This small but select team of individuals will be chosen based on their backgrounds and connections to both the traditional financial industries and blockchain space, to which they will liaise and promote FUSION’s concepts, vision, and collaborations. Since many of FUSION’s benefits to the finance world will emerge as the technology is adopted by existing blockchain projects and traditional financial institutions, this organisational focus will be instrumental in realizing the vision. Further announcements will be made as these individuals are appointed.
And finally, FUSION is announcing the Matrix Community Organisation. In striving to be fully inclusive of all communities, FUSION’s community management team will extend its activities by appointing Ambassadors to represent FUSION in various places around the world. The ambassadors will promote the idea of cryptofinance, and drive discussions globally in various languages and across different interest groups such as technical, trading and others. FUSION has already identified and confirmed ambassadors for four language/geography groups and will continue to develop this Matrix organisation for community reach and coverage.
