Zhenya Tsvetnenko is a successful Internet entrepreneur with a proven track record of successful ventures. Among his many entrepreneurial achievements was the pioneering of SMS gateway technology, which at one point in 2007 made him Google’s largest global advertising partner.
In 2013, Zhenya co-founded DigitalX (ASX: DCC), the world’s first publicly traded and listed digital currency company. Following a change in the Company’s strategic direction, including a name change to DigitalX Limited, the Company is now focused on the money transfer sector, whilst still utilising Blockchain technology to underpin its software.
In 2014 Zhenya founded performance based online advertising business, Mpire Media. Commencing with initial monthly revenue of $50,000 at its July launch, the Company grew rapidly to exceed monthly revenues of $1 million by the end of its first calendar year. Mpire Media subsequently listed on the Australian Securities Exchange under code ASX:TMP and is generating revenues of over $11 million annually.
