Simon, CEO of Storm recaps the Storm vision and the journey.

Hello to our awesome STORM community!

When we first began our journey in 2014, most people thought of Bitcoin and blockchain as a tool used only for money laundering and drug smuggling due to the aftermath of Mt. Gox and Silk Road. Throughout our journey, we’ve experienced a lot of ups and downs as we struggled to evangelize a technology that not many believed or understood. However, we have continued to relentlessly build towards this technology as we have always believed in the enormous impact it could have in the world. We stuck our heads down and continued to grow our user base and clients every day and overcame each and every obstacle that was thrown at us.

I’m proud of our Storm team.

What I already knew, and felt even more this week, was that our Storm team is made up of extremely talented people. In what feels like a short time, our extended team at Storm has already scaled to over 50 people and I am grateful that we are all committed to working toward building the new future — a future that gives billions of people the opportunity to advance in life.

I truly enjoy coming in to the office every morning as I can feel every individual is here to build towards a greater objective beyond their own personal needs as one company and One Storm. We are an early pioneer in the blockchain space, and even though this space has rapidly evolved, we have only started to tap into the potential of this amazing technology.

The Storm Vision:

We owe our community (and ourselves) a singular vision that describes who we are and aligns all of our operational activities.

To empower the lives of billions worldwide by allowing anyone to earn anywhere, anytime, from any device.

  • For the first time ever, we can send payments at ANY TIME half way across the world to someone in India or Europe for fractions of a penny.
  • We can now help create better opportunities for those that do not have access to a bank account.
  • We can improve the lives of those who are struggling with local currency inflation and provide a better living.
  • We can provide additional income earning opportunities who is willing to opt in to spend their time to earn to virtually anyone with an active device.

With Storm, we have an amazing opportunity to positively impact the lives of billions of people across the world whether they live in a first world country or an emerging country. We have started a movement by giving anyone the ability to earn — the foundation of empowerment.

As ONE team and as ONE Storm, we can accomplish the goal of improving the lives around the world. Thank you for being a part of the movement, and we hope you join us to be a part of the ONE Storm movement to empower the billions of people around the world.
