Introducing Daemon Technologies' Board of Directors
Daemon Technologies is on a mission to drive the adoption of Stacks technology in Asia. Founded just last year, today we are excited to publicly announce Daemon's independent Board of Directors.
Daemon's Board brings deep expertise in a number of areas important for our success. When choosing Directors, we prioritized individuals who already had skin in the game with the Stacks ecosystem, in addition to experience in running start ups and operating in the crypto space in Asia.
The Directors will oversee Daemon's operating activities, ensuring they remain aligned to our north star and the best interests of the Stacks community.
