MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CriptoHub, a Brazil-based Bitcoin & cryptocurrency exchange, today announced that Orion Agarwal has been elected to its advisory board and will serve as its Capital Markets Specialist. Mr. Agarwal will advise the company on strategic business development, on its media and public relations strategy, and provide CriptoHub with a U.S. business development presence to strategic and institutional partners.
Mr. Agarwal is a former cryptocurrency technology research analyst contributing to research at Standpoint Research. He has performed research on coins including Binance (BNB), Bread (BRD), Kyber Network (KNC), Huobi Token (HT), OKEx (OKB), KuCoin (KCS), Zcash (ZEC), Decred (DCR), Cybermiles (CMT), VeChain (VEN), Ontology (ONT), and Polymath (POLY).
In addition to Mr. Agarwal’s knowledge in the cryptocurrency finance arena he has a successful track record of aiding early stage technology companies to achieve success and eventual sale to a larger entity. He brings over 10 years of experience in management and leadership, corporate strategy, operations, incentivization strategy, internet marketing, financial valuation, and capital markets.
Prior to his current position Mr. Agarwal served as an equity research analyst for Los Angeles-based $1 billion long/short equity hedge fund Dalton Investments where he originated and researched stock ideas from the small-cap technology, financial services, and life sciences sectors. He also founded and managed a technology-focused venture capital firm with numerous successful investment exits including a sale of a portfolio company to Amazon.com and was the recipient of the 40 under 40 award. Mr. Agarwal holds an MBA in Finance-Investment Management from the University of Southern California (USC) and a B.A. from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD).
Mr. Agarwal states, “Brazil and South America present the perfect case-use study for cryptocurrency: for years the stock market in Brazil has been a tough place to invest one’s money. There’s been rampant inflation and poor corporate governance, but there’s clearly a lot of demand by investors who want to earn returns just like in the U.S. and Brazil is a superpower with 200 million people. That’s bigger than South Korea and Japan combined. The opportunity is present to create a brand-name on-ramp exchange in Brazil, like Coinbase has done in the U.S., and down the road maybe even a sophisticated larger-scale altcoin exchange like Huobi or Binance, in South America.”
