Taskfair, the blockchain-powered ecosystem for home service on-demand platforms and gig economy marketplaces, is announcing the addition of a new and highly experienced advisor to their team. David Drake, Chairman at LDJ Capital, will provide counsel on critical issues including investor relations and international business development.
“Securing a reliable service provider has been a challenge for most homeowners. Taskfair is offering its consumers a platform to connect and transact with a diverse listing of reputable service providers in a decentralized environment hence minimizing fraud and improving the experience for both parties. I am delighted to be part of their project that could transform the home service industry,” says David.
David Drake is a well-known entrepreneur, investor and speaker. Through his family office, LDJ Capital, and his partners, David’s investments currently have over fifty global directors that maintain relations with institutions and family offices with over a trillion in assets. He has represented the US Commerce Department at the Transatlantic Forum with the EU Commission in Brussels and Rome, as well as in the UK Parliament as a speaker.
“David brings a wealth of expertise to his role as Taskfair’s latest advisor. With regulation around token sales constantly evolving, we welcome his experience and relationships with regulatory bodies, and very much look forward to working with him. His unique understanding and unprecedented insight of the regulatory framework will prove indispensable in placing the project on a sound, compliant footing,” — Pavel Popov, Cofounder of Taskfair.
David’s seminal work in the Crowdfunding Industry has led to an invitation to the White House Champions of Change ceremony. He and his financial media company, The Soho Loft Media Group, set up the first ever crowdfunding meeting with SEC and FINRA in April 2012, shortly after President Barack Obama signed the JOBS (Jumpstart Our Business Startups) Act into law. Alongside other pioneers, he created the CfPA or Crowdfunding Professional Association, which later gave birth to the CFIRA or Crowdfunding Intermediary Regulatory Advocates. These two national associations have dealt with SEC and FINRA on a weekly basis for the past five years.
This background gives David a unique perspective on the strengths and challenges of the regulatory framework surrounding the crowdfunding industry, which now constitutes the backbone of the blockchain industry’s token offerings. David’s experience of the regulatory landscape and relationship with key regulatory bodies means he is ideally placed to work towards embracing compliance. He currently sits on the advisory board of more than 30 blockchain-based firms.
