Fee Range

Vinny Lingham

Called the "Oracle" of Bitcoin, Vinny Lingham is perhaps the most recognized Crypto-Currency expert in the world. Vinny is regularly recognized and featured by major media worldwide like Fortune Magazine, CNBC, Business Insider, and many more.. Along with Elon Musk, South African-born Vinny is currently South Africa's other major technology entrepreneur export to the famous Silicon Valley in San Francisco and is always found ranked online in the top 5 lists of the most influential FinTech/ Blockchain/ Crypto Sphere insiders on the planet. He is a Shark on "Shark Tank South Africa" made by the same producers as "Shark Tank" in the U.S.

His previous business Gyft, which sold electronic gift vouchers, shot to fame after it started to accept Bitcoins. After California-based First Data acquired Gyft in 2014, reportedly for over $50m, Lingham - a serial entrepreneur - has since also become well known as the 'Bitcoin Oracle' for his accurate forecasts of movements in the cryptocurrency's price and is now known as one of the world's top experts on Bitcon and Blockchain.

After over a decade of experience in e-commerce, he realized that no-one had a universal identity solution that balanced security and privacy with ease of use and ubiquity. Today, his company, Civic, is being built from the ground up to solve problems relating to identity theft, fraud, and ultimately, democracy.
