Vishal Gupta

CEO at SearchTrade | Bitcoin & Blockchain Based Venture

I have had the privilege of working in various ventures in different sectors and industries spanning a wide spectrum from IT, luxury goods, advertising and financial services over a period of the last 17 years. Life at work so far has been a very rewarding experience and my work has taken me to more than 30 countries around the world. I have gained first hand experience of different cultures and their business practices through this journey filled with both success and failure.

At this stage Blockchain technology & Philosophy behind ‘Bitcoin or Crypto Currencies’ have grabbed my attention and I see great potential in the development of an alternative monetary system and opportunity it presents within the financial sector. I believe with growing use of internet and our rapidly increasing dependence on internet due to ease of access provided by Mobile Technology will fundamentally change shape of financial industry in near future.

CEO & FOUNDER AT SEARCHTRADE.COM

If searching for information is the most common activity on the internet, then it is only fair that wealth generated by search has more stakeholders than just a few large companies.

SearchTrade aims to disrupt the present search industry and replace it with a more collaborative system which propagates wealth redistribution amongst search engine users.

We have raised more than $400,000 in crowd funding on our platform

Moving Trumpet is a business where I am exploring opportunities in Indian OOH advertising space. In this business I got opportunity to interact and work with some of the largest corporates in India. I offered services like advertising on exterior of taxis across India, A first in this industry.

Advertising is a competitive business and innovation seems the only way to stay relevant as far.
