Personality. Charlie Shrem
👺 Charlie Shrem is another enfant terrible of Bitcoin family. Crypto not only made him rich (Charlie’s estimated worth is 100 000 BTC), it also made him suffer. Shrem is known to have served a 2-year term in prison for his connection with infamous Silk Road darknet platform.
The first time Charlie got to know about Bitcoin was when he read a newspaper article about Silk Road shadow activity. The platform allowed people buy and sell illegal drugs and other stuff with BTC. Shrem contacted Gareth Nelson, and together they decided to start BitInstant service that would make Bitcoin transactions easier, faster and more convenient for mainstream user. Among the investors were the famous crypto enthusiast Roger Ver and the Winklevoss brothers who later became the first Bitcoin billionaires.
✅ BitInstant existed until September, 2013. At that time it was processing more than a third of all Bitcoin transactions. Charlie Shrem shut it down though, explaining that they had to improve the code to deal with numerous complaints of the customers.
On January 26th, 2014, Charlie Shrem was suddenly arrested in JFK airport in New York. He was accused of ‘operating an unlicensed money transmitting business, money laundering conspiracy and willfully failing to file suspicious activity reports with banking authorities’. He knew that some BitInstant users exchanged fiat for crypto to buy illegal goods, but preferred to keep silent about it. Moreover, he was helping Robert Faiella (aka BTCKing) who worked as an underground BTC exchange agent. Shrem was teaching Faiella some tricks to avoid being detected. Charlie’s partner Gareth Nelson was not aware of this dark side of their business.
✖️ Shrem pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of aiding money transmission and passed 2 years in prison, where he kept in touch with Roger Ver and other crypto colleagues.
When Charlie was released in 2016 he became involved in several crypto projects, one of them Ethereum-related. He is a founder of CryptoIQ, an advisory organization helping to promote cryptocurrencies and make them go mainstream.

For Thierry Courtois, a Formula E Fan – working his way up to the Mahindra Racing team was a dream come true. It all started when he entered the livery design competition for the M3Electro – Mahindra Racing’s Contender for Season 3, and was selected as one of the finalists. The racing team soon realised Thierry’s infectious passion for design and motorsport, and got him on board as the Creative Designer for the team.
Thierry has come a long way, from designing race posters, marketing collaterals to now being the go-to-guy for all things design on the team. His latest feat is the livery of the M5Electro – Mahindra Racing’s Gen2 Formula E race car. For him, this has been an experience like none other – challenging, yet exciting nonetheless. Not only did it give him the chance to try his hands at 3D design software (and master it), but it also inspired him to achieve more than what he thought he could.
Thierry strongly believes that great design should be more than just visually appealing – it should be functional, innovative and evoke strong emotions from the viewer. It’s no wonder that he prototyped and analysed endlessly, making more than 25 samples and 7 livery designs to strike the perfect balance between function and form for the M5Electro. And ultimately, after several iterations, seeing the final design come to life on the race track was nothing short of amazing. More so when the race car is on the podium – it’s a double celebration for Thierry – the creative spark for Mahindra Racing.

🦇🐝 Wat hebben vleermuizen en bijen met de vestiging in Roosendaal te maken?
Enexis Brabant-West is in september 2017 naar dit pand in Roosendaal verhuisd. Mooi aan de buitenkant, duurzaam aan de binnenkant. Zo heeft het automatische LED-verlichting, een dak vol zonnepanelen en CO2-gestuurde ventilatie. In de koude wintermaanden wordt aardwarmte met water omhooggepompt om het gebouw te verwarmen. In de zomer wordt er weer koud grondwater gebruikt om te koelen. Dit alles heeft het gebouw wat betreft duurzaamheid de BREEAM-score ‘excellent’ opgeleverd!
Én: we hebben bijen- en vleermuiskasten om de natuur een handje te helpen (zie 2e en 3e foto)

Anemia and iron deficiency reduce the well-being of individuals, cause fatigue and lethargy, and affect physical capacity and job performance. The average losses of physical productivity due to iron deficiency are high. If anemia is not reduced worldwide, millions of people will continue to suffer a decline in their health and quality of life, entire generations of children will be affected in their development and learning, and communities and nations will have lower economic productivity and development.
The most recent calculations of the World Health Organization (WHO) suggest that anemia affects around 800 million children and women. In fact, 528.7 million women and 273.2 million children under 5 were anemic in 2011, and about half of them were also iron deficient. And this is a serious public health problem especially in developing countries.
