ReelStar, a decentralized multi-blockchain and Web3 integrated social and entertainment platform, has appointed Marc Robinson as its Head of Asia. Robinson has over 22 years of experience in business development and strategy, market expansion, COO, and M&A, making him the perfect candidate to lead ReelStar’s expansion into the Asian market.
His deep understanding of Tier 1 Financial Service Securities forms, FinTech, Blockchain, and Digital Assets will be an invaluable addition to ReelStar’s growing team.
Robinson’s impressive career history includes building Lehman Brothers’ first low-latency ecosystem for HFT clients, building Nomura’s Prime Brokerage business, and restructuring JP Morgan’s Electronic Business.
Robinson created the entire digital asset business, including Crypto exchange, Custody, Prime Brokerage, and Technology, for SBI Digital Asset Holdings.
He was also on the Board of Directors for several of the investments he brought into under his venture arm, some of the most notable being Boerse Stuttgart Digital Exchange in Germany, Sygnum Bank, Coolbit X, and a Joint Venture between SBI and SDX to create a new exchange in Singapore.
Robinson was able to get external investments into his SBI DAH Entity at a $600M valuation after only 18 months.
Most recently, Robinson was running Coinbase APAC and previously was at BitMex, where he built out their Custody business.
Nick Bahl, Co-Founder, ReelStar, believes that Robinson’s expertise and leadership will help the company to further drive growth and success as it continues to innovate and expand its platform’s capabilities.
ReelStar is focused on content creation and sharing with a user-centric and mobile-first approach. Its utility token ReelToken (REELT) raised more than $5 million from the Initial Token Offering (ITO) last year.
