Alexey Koloskov, CEO + Co-Founder of Orion Protocol: “Few publications are as prestigious as Forbes, and it’s an honor to be joining the Forbes Finance Council alongside key thought leaders in the finance space. Becoming part of the Council brings an unrivaled opportunity for credibility within and beyond the crypto industry, giving us a highly targeted platform to communicate our capabilities in building the future of finance. 

We’re focused on building a sustainable decentralized finance landscape, and that means working with partners and peers to bring value to the end user. We welcome the incredible opportunity to build relationships and partnerships with existing Forbes Finance Council members who share our same goal. Our strong DeFi standing adds another layer of diversity to the Forbes Finance board in representation from a rapidly growing sector, and we believe this partnership will help pave the way for emerging businesses in the space.”

Governing the protocol is the proprietary staking mechanism Delegated Proof of Broker, fulfilling every function via a decentralized brokerage with the ORN token at its core. This underpins each industry-critical solution built on the protocol, including the flagship product Orion Terminal: the singular and non-custodial gateway to crypto.
