PRLog - Feb. 13, 2014 - BERLIN, Germany -- CEO J. Bradley Hall commented “We are excited to announce that ICON has agreed to acquire one of the top development houses in the digital currency space and in the process also added a true visionary in banking and decentralized computing and his team to our world class leadership roster. In speaking with most of the players in the nascent space we were impressed by the depth and breadth of talent with Tamas Blummer consistently ending up on the top of our list of who we wanted to work with and ultimately invite inside the tent.”

Tamas Blummer, the founder of Budapest based Bits of Proof Zrt. noted “In 2012, after a 20 year career, I left the lucrative world of investment banking and trading to follow my passion for creating an industrial strength platform that could deliver world class solutions in the digital currency space. When I started talking to Brad and his team, I realized they shared my passion, while coming at this with a vision for creating a decentralized financial platform and once we really got involved the synergies led us to conclude that we could have the greatest impact if we pursued this historic opportunity together.”

In closing Mr. Hall added “The decentralized computing wave has been disrupting a variety of industries and is now impacting the world of finance. The old models built around centralized, command and control hierarchies are imploding and this trend is irreversible. We are coming at this with a firm sense of history and an obligation that comes with a once in a generation type opportunity. We are building out a world-class team with the skills, experience and enthusiasm to execute our shared vision and plan. ICON is growing almost weekly and we expect to expand the Bits of Proof engineering team by 500% this year alone.”
