James Appel

Host “Genesis! The New Digital Business World”

As a young man and fresh upon graduating from Quinnipiac University with a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication, James was highly recruited and quickly took advantage of an executive opportunity to work in the Recycling industry. After 10 years, he decided to utilize his passion for being an entrepreneur and seized on the opportunities he saw in the building and construction boom in New York City. James started and built his own companies, M&J Commodity Brokerage Corp/Redwood Recycling from the ground up. Both quickly grew into a multi-million-dollar business selling metals, plastics and paper both internationally and domestically. His companies also provided aggregate services and the hauling of construction debris and contaminated soil.

During his tenure with those two companies, a unique opportunity arose for him in the new world of Digital Assets and Blockchain Technology and how they interacted with one another in relationship to companies within the financial system. He focused on the top 25 Digital Assets that had utility in this sphere and started discerning the differences between Digital Assets that would be solving real world problems, therefore having intrinsic value and utility from those companies that were based solely upon speculation. He learned how the financial system of the world and its attendant geopolitics were already interfacing and therefore would soon be laying the groundwork for an entirely new system to deal with the future of world finance and economics. He then proceeded to raise millions of dollars from investors who were impressed with his skills and knowledge and rapidly grew that money into a very lucrative business for his investors and himself.

Does all this sound foreign to you? Well, you’re in the right place! James is now poised and excited to educate and inform us all on this new business and financial world.
