NewsBTC recently got an opportunity to interact with Chris Horlacher, who is part of the Canadian Bitcoin ecosystem and the founder of Equibit — a decentralized securities platform. We asked a few questions and got him talking about his upcoming product.
NewsBTC: You have been in various positions, donning multiple hats. Can you tell us a bit about the things you have been involved in so far?
Chris: I have been doing a lot of things over the past few years. I have been writing and blogging for years, lot of them are getting republished on other platforms these days. Some of my articles also get published in The Dollar Vigilante. I am the board member of Mises Institute of Canada. Currently I am doing less writing and more business building and development for Equibit.
NewsBTC: Can you tell us a bit more about your association with Bitcoin Alliance of Canada?
Chris: I happened to meet Anthony DeOrio, the founder of Bitcoin Alliance of Canada at the Mises Institute meetups. He used to be a regular audience in the meetups. Anthony was already involved in Bitcoin and he had been organizing meetups etc. Once he approached me and shared his plans to start a bitcoin non-profit to represent bitcoin industry in Canada. I used to meet him frequently and advise him though the process of setting up Bitcoin alliance of Canada. I haven’t been doing much with BAC for a while now. Even Anthony has stepped down and he is focusing more on other for-profit ventures including Ethereum, Rush wallet etc.
NewsBTC: What made you start Equibit?
Chris: The idea of Equibit started soon after I understood Bitcoin, sometime in the late 2010. I realized the possibility of creating an asset register
