Marko M. Hafez

Co-Founder and Corporate Director

Marko has owned and operated Damasci Diamonds, a premiere online diamond retailer that boasts one of the most advanced internet marketplaces and IT solutions for the sale, management and distribution of precious gems. As Damasci grew its $180 million worth of inventory, it placed tremendous international settlement constraints on the company’s transactions, whereby Marko discovered the utility of Blockchain Tokens like Bitcoin. This discovery led to his realization that these instruments will someday need to be delivered forth to financial markets like all other negotiable instruments, sparking the idea of Blockstation. Marko’s networks with high-level developers, Brokerages and Bullion Dealers, was the perfect match to exploit Blockstation’s technology stack
