In this exclusive interview with George Souri, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of LQD Business Finance, a tech-enabled business lender that is developing a Bitcoin lending platform, Souri describes how using Blockchain in the loan securitization and lending process will improve process efficiency and accuracy. LQD’s platform will be the first to use Bitcoin as a business lending currency, and Souri explains why using Bitcoin as a lending currency is a function of a trend where cryptocurrency is not only a store for value, but also a useable currency in the lending process. Finally, we learn a bit about Souri’s acceptance into the Forbes Finance Council, an invitation-only community for executives in accounting, financial planning, wealth and asset management, and investment firms.
