Microsoft strategist Adrian Clarke, the latest tech advisor to join Modex ahead of ICO
LONDON, Nov. 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Former innovation director and principal technical strategy advisor at Microsoft, Adrian Clarke, is the latest tech star to join forces with Modex (www.Modex.tech), the UK based blockchain firm developing a global first smart contract marketplace. In the wave of tech executives leveraging experience and know-how as advisors to promising start-ups in the blockchain revolution, Clarke's pioneering work in the development of the Microsoft app store, lends proven muscle to Modex. "A world-class marketplace for smart contracts is exciting and I believe Modex has the perfect solution to deploy smart contracts in key industries," Clarke says. "Not only is it a great proposition, the Modex team has a huge amount of passion and a cooperative, cohesive style that will enable them to overcome obstacles. That's what has sold me," he adds. The Modex team is building the platform to enable companies to deploy a range of smart contracts in the real world. Although the company has generated enthusiasm from the financial services and e-commerce sector via its social payment product Moneymailme (payroll, P2P, inter-bank, etc.), Clarke believes the marketplace's ability to deploy smart contracts will resonate with the open source software development community, in-house enterprise developers, development teams in local government, software vendors, software integrators, and the extensive Microsoft Development Network. "These communities will be among the first to benefit from the Modex smart contract marketplace," he states. Modex CEO Mihai Ivascu, 29, lauds the appointment of Clarke due to his "wealth of knowledge in the technical and management space at Microsoft. Clarke agrees that the key to success for blockchain applications is "the creative ways the marketplace empowers people to work, live, and connect with a new layer of collaboration and cross-border inclusiveness. Collaboration is a big part of the Modex platform offering," says Clarke. Modex goes beyond smart contracts. According to Clarke, "It is a toolset that will enable people to set up collaborative trustless structures between existing business models. "The Modex marketplace," Clarke says "is perfectly adapted for this kind of selective sharing."
