Nick Williamson is the CEO & Founder of Credits. Nick started his career working in a Hedge Fund Administration while attending Illinois Institute of Technology on a Cross Country & Track scholarship. Eventually Nick realized his first true calling and became an online professional poker player. Through his unique skillset and leadership qualities, Nick caught the eye of Pokerstars and was hired to manage the Product & Operations of Ring Games; the largest real-money online poker product in the world. It was during 2010 when Nick was first introduced to Blockchain technology via Bitcoin and quickly became a leader in the space, contributing to numerous open source projects. This work would eventually lead to conceptualizing and building Credits, a hybrid framework providing interoperable, built-to-purpose blockchains.
