In an interview in Davos, Codex’s Alex Gordon-Brander talked about the launch of Ethereum, Codex’s liquidity features, and solving real-world problems with cryptocurrencies.

Codex co-founder and chief evangelist Alex Gordon-Brander spoke to Cointelegraph about his history of bitcoin, real-world use cases for cryptocurrencies, and the economic downturn during an interview at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

The co-founder stood at dusk on the side of the road in front of the “Crypto House” in Davos, where Gordon-Brander had just finished demonstrating the possibilities of the Code during the crypto panel, and shared an optimistic view of cryptocurrency.

He explored a “distributed currency based on renewable energy and government credit” but admits it was “over-complicated”.

He tried to get some Satoshi, but his then employer, Bridgewater Associates, founded by former bitcoiner-turned-bitcoin-bull Ray Dalio, “couldn’t handle compliance.” Fast forward to 2015 when the Ethereum network was launched and Gordon-Brander realized that the cryptocurrency space had legs.

“I was really intrigued by Bitcoin, but the idea of ​​a programmable currency — the idea of ​​a world computer and an interacting financial system — blew me away,” he said.

Starting in 2015, Gordon-Brander helped launch a crypto exchange and participated in the initial coin supply boom before joining Codex Labs.

“The world is much better off with this technology than without it.”
