SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NYNJA Group Ltd. (https://www.nynja.biz/) hosted martial artist and world-renowned actor, producer and author Wesley Snipes at CoinAgenda Caribbean in Puerto Rico to demonstrate its global communications platform, which features an integrated messaging application and digital services marketplace powered by its own cryptocurrency, NYNJACoin.
“When we first met Wesley, it was clear we shared a vision for how blockchain technology will fundamentally change the future of communication, business and entertainment,” said Salvatore “JR” Guerrieri, CEO of NYNJA. “We decided the industry events in Puerto Rico created the perfect place for us to meet each other and members of the blockchain community to learn more about how entrepreneurs are deploying this revolutionary technology.”
Snipes joined Guerrieri and NYNJA co-founders Marshall Taplits and Alec Gramont as the team showcased the alpha version of its platform at conferences and corresponding events associated with Restart Week, a weeklong series of blockchain technology and volunteer service events dedicated to the economic development and rebuilding of Puerto Rico.
Known for portrayals of iconic film characters like Nino Brown in New Jack City and the superhero vampire hunter Eric Brooks in the Blade franchise, Snipes is also a skilled martial artist trained in multiple disciplines, including Karate, Kempo, Copoirera and Kali. He is also co-author of Talon of God a critically acclaimed spiritual thriller and number one bestseller on Amazon’s Urban Fantasy Thriller genre.
More recently, Snipes has explored technology entrepreneurship and developed an interest in blockchain technologies and applications. NYNJA is an ideal candidate for exploration of how he can share it with his global fan base and potential app users. During the conference, Snipes downloaded the alpha version of NYNJA, making him the first person outside of the company to test the preliminary features of the global messaging platform.
“With the debut of NYNJA at CoinAgenda, we’re introducing a new way to communicate and engage in commerce without the friction of cross-border and language barriers,” explains NYNJA president Alec Gramont. “As a veteran actor and savvy entrepreneur skilled in martial arts, Wesley understands the significance of NYNJA’s sleek app that packs a serious punch. We’re grateful for his experience and enthusiasm for our project.”
