After graduating from Manchester in the late 80's he worked in all aspects of technology. His interest progressed from the raw technical and software deveopment skills (which is has in abundance demonstrated by the fact he achieved no fewer than 10 Microsoft Professional Certifications or MCP's and was one of the first people in the UK to achieve MCSD.net all those years ago) to how technology changed the way businesses work.

Advisor – Global Marketplaces
Wayne Sharpe joins the BIZpaye CRYPTO Advisory Team and is credited with creating and leading the world's grandest non-cash credit unit barter exchange Bartercard. It won awards globally including Best International and Best Domestic Franchise system (Australia), Best Business Tool (UK), and Best Entrepreneurial Business (Hong Kong).
The fact that Bartercard was one of the earliest stages of cryptocurrency makes Mr. Sharpe a true grandfather of cryptocurrency. During the visionary's tenure at Bartercard they expedited more than $40 billion in trade and over 30 million transactions from 136 offices across 20 countries worldwide, employing more than 3,500 staff, and handling more than 50% of the global non-cash (barter) transactions.
Fast-forward to 2017 where the mushrooming of cryptocurrencies and decentralized ecosystems have opened the door to the possibilities of mass adoption of decentralized barter systems. It is our conviction that the time is ripe to monetize such a system, and backed by Mr. Sharpe's vision, experience, and contacts, we see BIZpaye CRYPTO as well positioned to be the global leader in our field.
Additionally, apart from being the founder of the Carbon Trade Exchange (CTX), a global electronic platform for the spot trading of voluntary carbon credits, Mr. Sharpe relishes sound relationships with the world's leading environmental organizations, regulators, and carbon credit standards.

Abstract: Legal and regulatory compliance
The presentation will focus on the current landscape surrounding ICOs, token classifications and how to hold a successful ICO. The legal landscape surrounding ICOs is constantly changing and regulators are showing more and more interest. But the entire market is far from being regulated on a global scale. The main focus will be on some of the most important aspects when holding an ICO and legal boundaries that need to be respected.
