When James Gonzalez first heard about BitCoin in 2011, he dismissed it. It didn’t seem relevant. As a real estate investor, he was interested in more traditional forms of capital. Then he heard about it again. And again. BitCoin kept coming up, and Gonzalez finally began to take it seriously. By 2013, he’d started making investments in the space. Late in that year, he co-founded CryptoConsultant, the first pure BitCoin consultancy in Canada, at the time.
CryptoConsultant is expanding — and changing. People want to know how Blockchain technology can be applied to their existing industry. This is an increasingly relevant question. Because for Gonzalez, society is dominated by networks, and the Blockchain leverages those networks more powerfully than ever before.
