Roberto Mancone Leaves We.Trade
In a recent conversation with CoinDesk, Mr. Mancone announced that he is leaving the firm after he was able to grow it from seven banks to 14. He explained that he now has to explore the next steps of what blockchain technology can achieve.
About it, he commented:
“I have not yet seen something that shows the ultimate benefit of the technology. We are building solutions that are perceived as valuable by providers of the solutions, not the users.”
Mancone was able to make we.trade one of the first enterprise blockchain projects to go live to the market. He has also praised IBM and the member banks for the progress they made during the last years.
In addition to it, he has also mentioned how he believes that enterprise blockchains will evolve in the future in order to include more companies from different industries. He hinted that we.trade could also work with IBM and Maersk Tradelense, among other firms.
Mancone said that he can see how the technology can change the whole business model. But in order to do so, it is important to have stakeholders from different industries.
Ciaran McGowan will be the new replacement of Mancone at we.trade. He will take the title of general manager, according to CoinDesk. McGowan doesn’t have a trade finance or banking background and he worked at inMotion, Pharmapod, KBCBank, Fineos, and Eontec, among others.
