Mati Greenspan Leaves eToro, Moving on to New Venture, Will Help BlockTV and Its BLTV Token Launch
- Mati Greenspan was with eToro for 7.5 years before his departure.
- He will be offering his services as an advisor for BlockTV as it launches the BLTV tokens.
Mati Greenspan has continually been a supporter of Bitcoin, working as the Senior Market Analyst of eToro for the last seven years. He’s worked with VIP clients, created viral video content, and worked directly with the Premium Club Network. However, after working with the platform for years, Greenspan announced on Twitter that he is bidding it “a very fond farewell.”
In his Twitter post on the departure, he thanked his colleagues and friends, with special appreciation for Yoni Assia. Assia is the founder and CEO of the eToro social investment network.
After 7.5 years of fantastic mutual growth, today I bid a very fond farewell to @etoro.
Special thanks to @yoniassia, to all my colleagues and friend and to all of you for the outstanding support.
Looking forward to my next ad-ventures!!

Still, just because Greenspan is leaving eToro behind doesn’t mean he’s done with cryptocurrency. In a follow-up tweet, he stated that he’s already found his next stop, BlockTV. At BlockTV, Greenspan will be taking on an advisory role during an upcoming token sale, which he stated will be announced this week with Bittrex Exchange. But his main focus will be running his new blog QuantumEconomics.io that will provide trading and market information to users and companies. BlockTV will be his first customer.
BlockTV is good for the crypto industry & I'm looking forward to their success!!https://t.co/eS8k5voRzQ

This morning, BlockTV posted a video with Greenspan, speaking with Yael Lavie about his next step in his career. First addressing the impressive time he spent with eToro, Greenspan stated that the platform is “an amazing place,” adding that he loves everything that the company has done. With nearly 800 employees from the 80 employees it began with, Greenspan stated that he never expected he would be with the brand so long.
Leaving the company, for Greenspan, came at a time when he had reached his “maximum growth potential.” For that reason, he made a “radical change.” Lavie stated that Greenspan has been responsible for a lot of progress in eToro, shedding light on his substantial social media presence. From 2017 to now, Greenspan boomed from a few thousand followers and now has 23,000 followers, which Lavie remarked has made Greenspan synonymous with cryptocurrency.
Lavie stated that BlockTV is “happy to announce” Greenspan’s decision to join them as an advisor. Earlier this month, we reported on the upcoming distribution, which will be the sale of the BLTV tokens. The tokens will be available for paying for advertisements to be run on the BlockTV network, and they can be redeemed for tickets to events with BlockTV. However, rather than launching an initial exchange offering or even an initial coin offering, the tokens are just going to be directly listed on Bittrex Global on November 21st of this year. BlockTV already confirmed that there won’t be a private sale.
