Meet Kenneth Bok!
Please join us in welcoming Kenneth Bok as Head of Growth and Strategy at Zilliqa. As a leader, speaker, technologist and financial trader — Kenneth’s skills and passions are varied. We are thrilled he has chosen to be a part of our expanding family.
Kenneth will use his decade-long cross-disciplinary experience in entrepreneurship, finance, and deep technology to drive enterprise adoption and global partnerships for Zilliqa. In 2017, Kenneth founded Blocks Pte Ltd, a distributed ledger technology research firm specialising in blockchain market assessment. He was the lead organiser for De/Centralize 2018, a landmark blockchain conference in Singapore, that involved SGInnovate, leading blockchain teams including Zilliqa, and top-flight Venture Capital funds. Having been involved in blockchain since the Ethereum crowdsale in 2014, he has accumulated a wealth of knowledge on crypto-fund strategies, research & analysis, crypto regulations and market investments. With his keen instinct of business opportunities, he has also been a seed-stage and angel investor in numerous notable blockchain projects, and is a regular speaker and writer in prominent industry platforms.
Kenneth has previously worked at leading investment bank Goldman Sachs. His background in finance will help Zilliqa as we gear up to become a preferred platform for the budding decentralised finance ecosystem.
Kenneth holds an M.Eng degree from Imperial College London and an M.A in Philosophy and Religion from the California Institute of Integral Studies. Singaporean by birth, he is a grassroots leader with the People’s Association, and is a reserve infantry officer with the Singapore Armed Forces.
