On March 26th and 27th, the SMIF class was honored to welcome SMIF alumnus and 2003 Bucknell University graduate, Mr. Joe Quintilian. Mr. Quintilian graduated from Bucknell with a degree in management and went on to co-found Axiom Markets, a proprietary energy trading firm, where he serves as a partner. He serves as a board member of Concord 51, a political action committee that targets young professionals. Joe is the co-founder of Ether ETF, a crypto currency ETF, and last year became a partner at Distributed Capital, which is a block chain focused venture capital fund.
Mr. Quintilian shared his outlook on the future of crypto currency, with selected focus on Bitcoin and Ethereum. He has confidence that crypto currency will become the leading method of transaction in the near future, and relayed to our class what factors he believes will make certain crypto currencies successful or unsuccessful. Mr. Quintilian also shared many personal anecdotes about his career journey, including advice on the skills and mindset necessary to achieve success. The SMIF class greatly enjoyed Mr. Quintilian’s visit, and would like to thank him for taking time out of his busy schedule to speak with us.
