BH Network and BHero
I am a chief information officer at BH Network, a cryptocurrency launchpad and a blockchain-based freelancing marketplace. My fascination with technology began at a young age. I loved figuring out how things worked, and I have early memories of taking apart TVs and putting them back together again. I started my career with a military engineering apprenticeship and spent seven years as a military engineer. During my time in the military, I had the opportunity to travel widely. I realized that many of the challenges we face in the world can be addressed through education, and I began writing and exploring other ways to educate people. I started an SEO marketing company with a partner, which sparked my interest in blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. My different career paths have helped me understand how systems influence the world around us. I approach all of my work with a sense of methodology and purpose.
Cointelegraph Innovation Circle member Steve Talbot, himself a former freelance internet marketer, is using blockchain to offer freelancers a more equitable marketplace.
Full transparency around transactions, projects and technologies is the only way crypto can grow as an industry.
Changing negative perceptions of the crypto industry entails a combination of education and consistent, smart SOPs.
While rising interest rates can entail increased risk for the crypto industry, they may also bring new opportunities.
BH Network, a startup that launched in March 2021, consists of two projects built on the MultiversX blockchain: BHero, a cryptocurrency launchpad for startups in the European Union, and TopIQs, a decentralized freelancing marketplace. BHero helps onboard retail investors and Web2 companies to the blockchain, while assisting them in raising funds and ensuring they follow all legal and KYC/AML requirements. We also offer accelerator and incubator services. Our main goal is to educate traditional companies about Web3 and empower them to benefit from blockchain technology. The two tokens and three NFT projects we have launched so far have all oversold, one NFT collection of 10,000 in a record 7 minutes. TopIQs is a freelance marketplace with a complete footprint in blockchain, designed for Web3 buyers, sellers and businesses. It aims to remove common pain points, such as high fees, long payment wait times, fraudulent chargebacks and a limited talent pool, and to give global freelancers a simple, secure way to provide their services.
