Luca Merli is a reputed investment manager with an extensive track record in the financial sector. In 2014, he strategically turned to the crypto-asset industry, crossing over to the new frontier of exchange platforms and blockchain application development. Prior, he co-founded ALEPH Sicav, a Luxembourg-based, open-ended investment company that managed a cumulative asset of €200 million over time. He has also consulted for Merrill Lynch and SocGen on fund-linked structured products. As Bitminer Factory’s Chief Strategy Officer, he leads the company’s growth strategy, including investment and risk analysis for large-scale mining.
Luca believes that mining is the keystone that will hold up the globally shared, peer-to-peer payment system.
