Business Development and Project Management, Threefold Tech
"Geert Machtelinckx is a specialist in blockchain technology and self-sovereign identity, having working in the financial industry for more than 20 years. His drive for innovation made him join ThreeFold Tech, who has built the globe’s first fully decentralised, endlessly scalable and neutral cloud infrastructure. Privacy and security are built in by design by having compute, network and storage interacting at the lowest possible level, in a Linux-based, peer-to-peer operating system, able to run any IT workload. The company is focused on meeting the demand for decentralisation within the data economy, both in terms of geography (able to run at the edge), data ownership and information privacy. For Geert, there are three focal points for the technology to achieve in terms of positive impact for both humanity and our planet: SOVEREIGNTY, EQUALITY and SUSTAINABILITY. The main reference project ThreeFold Grid, exists today in more than 50 countries with more than 80 Petabytes of storage and 24k CPU cores available. It proves an internet owned by everyone for everyone is achievable."
