We have ambitious plans to increase our presence and lead the way in various different areas, including NFTs, DeFi, Metaverse, and more," said Farhad Shagulyamov, newly appointed CEO of Velas.

About Farhad Shagulyamov

Shagulyamov has the same vision of decentralization as Alex Alexandrov. He was at the heart of Velas when the project was launched and continued to make significant contributions to Velas' development through his activities in his previous position. Together with Alexandrov and the rest of the Velas team, they have managed to create a decentralized distributed ledger with the highest speed and the lowest fees.

Shagulyamov's path to the blockchain niche started in 2016 when he became a cryptocurrency investor and started a technology company in China. This invaluable experience allowed him to make a huge contribution to developing the idea of Velas and establishing the project. The partnership with a wealth management company in Switzerland led to the creation of the first ISIN, the first cryptocurrency international security identification number.

About Alex Alexandrov

The founder of Velas, Alexandrov, is well-known for founding the Coinpayments service. However, his expertise in the financial sector is not limited to this payment gateway. Even before he started his blockchain career, Alexandrov was a trader with a background in investing in various assets, including derivatives.

His 15+ years of experience in IT allowed him to build Coinpayments (a cryptocurrency payment processor accepting Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and many other altcoins) and lead a team of top engineers, entrepreneurs and marketers to create the fastest blockchain network.

About Velas

Velas is a developer-friendly blockchain ecosystem with smart contract functionality, designed as the infrastructure for a new generation of services, platforms, applications and games.

High speed (75,000+ TPS), cost-effective transactions and scalability are not the only positive factors that attract both developers and end-users. Velas has launched a grant program to stimulate teams to contribute to the further expansion of the Velas ecosystem.
