Seun who has invested in various ventures across different industries ranging from Agriculture, Movie Production, Education, Renewable Energy to various tech startups, journey into crypto space started as a curiosity while he worked as an IT Manager at an Oil and Gas company. Selling e-gold and Liberty Reserve exposed him to the centralized nature of these currencies when they were shut down, resulting in the freezing of his assets by United States courts. With the advent of bitcoin in 2009, he understood the concept of decentralization and decided to build 234 Exchange, offering people a platform to buy, sell, and transfer digital currencies. Later, Tradefada was launched to accommodate new features.
The investment from Oluwaseun and the recent partnership with Deimos Cloud Security mark significant milestones for Patricia Technologies, demonstrating its commitment to driving financial evolution in Africa. The company's journey has been marked by turbulence, but it has consistently showcased innovative solutions and a pioneering spirit.
As the crypto market continues to evolve, backing from prominent figures like Oluwaseun and partnerships with industry leaders like Deimos Cloud Security position Patricia Technologies for future success. The company's unwavering dedication to advancing the crypto landscape in Africa has garnered recognition and support from investors and industry insiders alike.
