Christopher Attard - Head of Media Operations
Christopher has been an avid crypto enthusiast since the early days back when he had no idea about Bitcoin other than it was cool, hip and a geeky underground trend. He has since accrued varied experience in multiple sectors, from his studies in psychology and human decision making to his short-lived yet highly educational years in the financial sector. Christopher is a contributor on several publications, chief among which being the Times of Malta and his Medium profile, where he now covers financial markets and the cryptocurrency sector in depth. Being an active, driven and engaged individual, Christopher is also flexing his organisational muscles in the events sector because as we all know, there's no business like show business.

Aside from managing the production of all our magazines, ensuring all events are branded, designing artwork, liaising with printers and much more, Jessica is also in charge of making sure everyone in the company is happy.
