Mihai and Anthony together with the Modex team have worked together closely for quite a few years now since they first visited Gibraltar in 2017 as they have developed their service offering during this time. 

During this Fireside Chat we will cover:

About Modex

The journey started with award-winning social payments app Moneymailme, which inspired them to create Modex back in 2017. Initially designed as a Smart Contract Marketplace and app ecosystem, Modex transformed into a thriving blockchain-based solutions provider.

Their fast-growing ecosystem now features the MODEX Token as well as Modex Blockchain Database® (BCDB), a patented enterprise blockchain solution that augments traditional databases with the capabilities and benefits of blockchain: real-time data protection and integrity, streamlined data sharing, and simplified compliance processes.
