Familiar Face Takes Over as New Humaniq CEO

“…Humaniq has developed a digital banking platform based on Ethereum blockchain and mobile biometrics for user authentication, started trials for the platform, and even branched into tech financing.”

Digital banking solutions provider Humaniq has a new CEO, but he’s no stranger to the company.

Familiar Face Takes Over as New Humaniq CEOSoon after Alex Fork founded Humaniq, the startup hired Dinis Guarda on a short-term contract to get the company on a solid footing. One year later, Humaniq has developed a digital banking platform based on Ethereum blockchain and mobile biometrics for user authentication, started trials for the platform, and even branched into tech financing. With that work done, Guarda is stepping aside, and Alex Fork is taking the reins as Humaniq’s new CEO.

In a statement announcing the leadership change, Guarda expressed confidence in the transition process, saying, “I am sure Alex Fork will lead Humaniq while undertaking all appropriate precautionary measures to ensure company growth and continue with the international pilots that were started by me and my team.”

But Guarda’s affiliation with Humaniq doesn’t end here, with the company also indicating that Guarda will continue to support the company ‘in establishing technology and product trajectory’. Fork, meanwhile, will “focus on making Humaniq more competitive in the increasingly exciting blockchain space” through investments in R&D, new partnerships, and “amplifying confidence” in the firm and its potential.
