Jani Valjavec embodies the entrepreneurial spirit. He has always been attracted to the traditional financial and economic world, and during his engineering and economics studies, he also became interested in crypto-economics, becoming convinced that the field constituted a disruptive force in the world that would allow unforeseen solutions for human society. He is a crypto and app token expert and a well-known member of the blockchain community. He was an early blockchain enthusiast back in 2014, when he and Tim M. Zagar founded Bitcoin payment processor Cashila, the first registered Bitcoin company in Europe. In 2016, Valjavec, together with Žagar, applied his knowledge and enthusiasm for crypto to the foundation of ICONOMI, the first platform offering users the opportunity to easily manage multiple digital assets. ICONOMI is also the first crowdfunded blockchain-related project in Slovenia to deliver a functioning platform in less than a year.
