Serial entrepreneur Amine Larhrib leveraged his knowledge of both traditional banking and decentralized finance (DeFi) to create companies that promote cryptocurrency and streamline banking practices.
Amine believes that the adoption of DeFi (Decentralized Finance) will benefit the financial system, and understands the importance of developing new tools for DAO’s and DeFi participants that comply with nascent regulations of this new technology.
With nearly a decade of experience in the traditional financial sector, Amine handled Senior client relationships in Hong Kong, Canada, and the Middle East. He worked with Sovereign Wealth Funds across Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) to Equity Derivatives Interbank intermediation. He also worked on the ground floor of many consumer goods and technology-related start-ups before deciding to focus on DeFi with his own companies.
Amine is a founder of CryptalDash Ltd. and DLTify UAB. CryptalDash Ltd. is a financial institution based in Gibraltar that specializes in banking services related to the blockchain.
With DLTify, a subsidiary of CryptalDash Ltd., Amine founded a company that explores new solutions for blockchain-related issues while empowering users to conduct fiat banking in an environment that complies with regulations.
Amine also founded the CRD Network DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) — essentially a suite of apps with infrastructure that allows anyone to build on top of it. The network reduces the risks associated with owning and trading cryptocurrency by allowing people who use the network to connect their banks to their crypto wallets. It’s also a licensed KYC provider, empowering developers to build and improve new apps within a KYC-compliant environment. The CRD Network is built on hyperledger Besu, which uses the Ethereum blockchain. It also has its own native token (CRD).
Amine holds a Master of Science degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and a Bachelor of Commerce degree from McGill University.
In his free time, Amine educates others about blockchain-based technology and its many applications.
