The blockchain technology has become a key player in the cryptocurrency realm. Blockchain technology is a tamper-proof ledger, which has been used for digital transactions. The technology has a high prevalence in various industries including health, finance, and entertainment area.  

Equibit Group is a Toronto-based-company that has applied blockchain to establish the world's first peer-to-peer equity and debt marketplace. The company was established in 2010. The company manages the relationship with investors in a secure and decentralized manner. “The advantage of choosing a blockchain based model is the 256-bit encryption key, which makes it almost impossible to penetrate,” says Chris Horlacher, President and CEO of Equibit Group. Equibit has recently announced the appointment of its board of directors.

The members of the Equibit Board include Chris Horlacher, Peter Braun (Director of the European Business Angels Network), Eelco Fiole (Managing Partner, Alpha Governance Partners), Efi Pylarinou (Director of Efi Pylarinou Advisory), Harvey Wortsman (Managing Director, MC Integrated (Director).
