Chain of Points, a blockchain-based loyalty platform, has appointed internet pioneer Jeff Pulver to the company’s board of Advisors. An early investor in Twitter, Pulver is best known for his work on VoIP technology. He is the founder of multiple companies including Free World Dialup, Vonage, VON Coalition and MoNage.
Pulver is also the chief writer of Pulver Order, which was adopted in 2004 by the US Federal Communications Commission as the first FCC ruling regarding Internet Protocol (IP) communications. It is considered to be the reason why services like Facetime, WhatsApp, and Messenger are offered for free, and why Microsoft, Facebook and Apple are not regulated as communication service providers.
“I have been involved in the technology industry for many years, and have acted as an advisor for several successful companies. I believe it is an exciting time to become involved with Chain of Points because the start-up has found a unique way to disrupt the loyalty industry, especially for small and medium sized businesses. Merchants and customers will find it so much easier to utilize rewards through Chain of Points, and I am honored to help them navigate their path to becoming an industry heavyweight.”
“We are thrilled to have Pulver, one of the most influential and highly recognized thought leaders in technology, joining the Chain of Points team,” said Irene Katzela, Ph.D., Chain of Points CEO. “Pulver has unmatched experience, vision, and networks, and will be an extraordinary asset to our organization.”
The addition of Pulver comes just a week after Chain of Points added Microsoft, Amazon, and Expedia executive Gene Kavner to their board.
