It's time for our second Meet the Team. Today, we welcome our Chief Marketing Officer - Matthew Chuen, who's now been a part of StormX for almost a year!
How did you end up working in blockchain?
Being a tech-geek, I've always been slightly FOMO'ish about new and emerging tech. When I learned about crypto and blockchain back in 2013, I was amazed, and I delved down the rabbit hole and learned as much as possible. Three years later, I decided to work in the industry and started consulting for startups during the ICO boom.
What was your first job?
I worked a few bar jobs and retail roles while I was studying. Post university, however, I ended up working as a content marketing executive for an agency. Safe to say, I caught the marketing bug.
What are you most excited about with StormX?
What is there NOT to be excited about?! But first and foremost, being able to bring the world of crypto to anyone, anywhere. I've tried for so long to explain the ins and outs of cryptocurrency to friends and family. However, some of the more complicated parts always swamp them. I get it; however, I don't think it gets any easier with StormX's simple yet effective way of earning crypto cashback!
Favorite upcoming feature?
I think you know it has to be the StormX Debit Card. I'm a little gutted that I won't be part of the initial US rollout. However, with 15k more opportunities to receive rewards, I can't wait for us to see the smile on many of your happy faces. Quite literally, please send us photos on social media!
As a child, who did you want to be when you grew up?
Bet you don't hear this one often… A paleontologist. Ok, now hear me out; I was that stereotypical kid who was obsessed with Dinosaurs, then to top it off, Jurassic Park comes out, and seeing it at the cinema blows my mind completely. It was the perfect storm.
"Done is better than perfect" - There's always time to finetune and perfect. However, losing a first-mover advantage or a reactive opportunity is final.
