Sasha Ivanov is Founder & CEO at Waves. He is a Technology Entrepreneur and for the past decade he's been helping improve business, banking and public administration systems evolving electronic payment mechanisms.
In 2016 he founded Waves Platform, a global public blockchain platform with a market cap of $1.7 billion (as of 19th December, 2017), which was crowdfunded 30,000 BTC ($18 million), representing the second-largest successfully crowdfunded blockchain project (after Ethereum).
