Victory Square Technologies Inc. (OTC:VSQTF) has appointed Guy Halford-Thompson as the company’s strategic advisor. Halford-Thompson, an expert in blockchain technology, is the co-founder of BTL Group (TSXV:BTL), a company that provides blockchain solutions to a large realm of industries, from banking to fantasy sports.
Halford-Thompson will largely be focusing on expanding Victory Square’s current position within the cryptocurrency market. He will be advising Victory Square’s portfolio companies, including Blockchain Assembly and FansUnite, helping them to expand their business. Halford-Thompson will also be an instrumental player in helping Victory Square to pinpoint the best blockchain companies from across the globe.
Shafin Diamond Tejani, the CEO of Victory Square summed up the company’s excitement over the appointment: “Guy has been a thought-leader in the blockchain space for years and has had tremendous success building one of Canada’s premier blockchain companies, the BTL Group. We are extremely excited and fortunate to have him join Victory Square due to his extraordinary vision and foresight on how blockchain will disrupt verticals that our portfolio companies operate in, such as Gaming, Health, Fintech, VR/AR/MR, and AI.”
Beyond just being the first publicly traded Canadian blockchain company, BTL Group has also managed to increase its market cap to $250 million. The company has focused on a product called Interbit, which is a blockchain development platform that enables developers to build blockchain-based applications across a broad scope of uses. Victory Square has long been invested in BTL and Halford-Thompson’s work, so the appointment of the BTL co-founder was a natural next step for the company to take.
“Victory Square played a key part helping BTL scale in its early days,” explained Halford-Thompson. “I’m extremely excited to join the team as an advisor. The leadership group at Victory Square has consistently shown an ability to identify large market opportunities, as well as the right teams to capitalize on them. They give them the funding, resources and relationships required to accelerate their growth and allow them to scale internationally.”
