AdLunam, Inc. Appoints Tech Luminary Lawrence Hutson as CTO

Legendary tech pioneer joins industry-first Proof of Attention crypto investment platform to bring solution to crypto investing's attention problem

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / November 12, 2021 / AdLunam, Inc., an NFT-integrated Proof of Attention Initial DEX Offering (IDO) launchpad, welcomes industry leader Lawrence Hutson as the company's new Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Hutson has had an illustrious career that spans the breadth of cutting-edge tech innovation, having registered his first domain name in 1988. Formerly CTO at PAID Network, Hutson brings to AdLunam, Inc. over 30 years' worth of business experience and technological acumen.

"By appointing Lawrence as CTO, AdLunam gains a prolific computer scientist who's been behind many incredibly successful companies and whose tech expertise - spanning multiple decades - will ensure scaling of our technology to match the company's vision of enabling crypto investors to exchange their social media engagement for investment opportunities," said Nadja Bester, AdLunam co-founder. "Lawrence has a widespread reputation for being at the vanguard of technological developments throughout the entirety of his career, and his involvement with AdLunam speaks to the level of innovation we're bringing to the IDO market by disrupting investor attention flow."

While at PAID Network, Hutson created the company's successful Ignition launchpad. AdLunam, Inc.'s disruptive IDO allocation model necessitated a search for an exceptional CTO to bring to life AdLunam's launchpad. The investment ecosystem will support project launches from the seed round onward and afford investors the opportunity to build up tradable Attention Ranks via Proof of Attention to qualify for investment allocation.

"I am super excited to be joining AdLunam as CTO due to its revolutionary new approach to IDOs and seed funding," said Hutson on joining AdLunam, Inc. "After looking at 100s of new crypto projects I chose AdLunam because it has the most potential with its unique protocol to give the best blockchain projects access to the highest quality investors, coupled with its amazing management team and advisors."

As software visionary, Hutson has been at the forefront of some of the world's most disruptive technological advances. As far back as 1993, while contracted to Verizon/GTE, he helped shape the creation of the global internet based on TCP/IP. In his role as co-founder and CTO of Travelocity circa 1995, Hutson created the Internet's first-ever travel-booking website, growing it to the world's largest e-commerce site at the time. After founding Nexgen Travel Distribution in Germany in 2005, Hutson led the company through Seed, Series A, and Series B funding rounds. Thanks to his ingenuity, Nexgen filed for multiple travel tech-related patents. In his tenure as CTO at Sequoya Analytics, he headed up a predictive modelling SaaS for numerous international Fortune 400 companies.

Since his foray into the blockchain space in 2018, someone has closely associated Hutson with several disruptive projects establishing world-first use cases for distributed ledger technology. He co-founded CRMAdapt, the first decentralised customer relationship management system to hit the market. Serving in his capacity as CTO, he has spanned the breadth of the industry, including Crypto Exchange Alliance and VC firm and incubator Master Ventures. The VC firm's $1B portfolio includes Coinbase, Kracken, Ripple, Polkadex, and PAID Network, at which Hutson subsequently became its CTO.

Hutson holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Economics from the University of Texas at Arlington, and a Master of Science in Computer Science and a PhD Tenure Track in Computer Science with an emphasis in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Cryptography from the University of North Texas.

Hutson will lead AdLunam's development of a crypto investment platform that offers projects unparalleled connection to an evergreen engaged investor community. AdLunam fosters a zero-sum game between investors and new tokens that trades relational investment for capital allocation.
