  • Vitalik Buterin, Founder of Ethereum
  • Brian Armstrong, Co-Founder and CEO of Coinbase

Here’s the write-up on Chris McAlary

Chris McAlary, Coin Cloud

Title: Founder and Chief Executive Officer

McAlary is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Coin Cloud, the world ’ s only international net of bipartite Digital Currency Machines ( DCMs ), which give customers the ability to buy and sell over 40 cryptocurrencies with cash at every location. McAlary recognized early on that cash consumers needed an easy way to enter and exit the digital currency economy, and besides wanted choices, so he developed a hardware and software solution that now serves those customers in more than 4,500 locations across the U.S. and Brazil.

McAlary discovered Bitcoin after college and became inspired by how much cryptocurrency could empower people and improve their lives. But it was unmanageable to buy, and Bitcoin mining had challenges of its own. With a mission of providing digital currency for all, McAlary started investigating self-serve kiosks in 2013. A Bitcoin ATM prototype launched in Canada, but undefined regulations in the U.S. created roadblocks, so he helped develop industry submission. In 2014, he installed the first Bitcoin ATM on the Las Vegas Strip, then continued to place machines while upgrading the technology and options to create a raw class of DCMs. McAlary holds a Bachelor ’ s Degree in Economics from Pomona College in Claremont, CA.
