The problem solver

Kim Cope’s work is all about solving problems. Kim is Product Lead & Blockchain Specialist at AxiomZen, a Vancouver-based innovation studio that applies emerging technological solutions to persistent business problems. Their products have been used by hundreds of millions of people, including teams at Microsoft, Facebook and NASA. At AxiomZen, Kim’s position is akin to a utility infielder (i.e., someone who can play a lot of positions). At AxiomZen, Kim is a part of the executive team focused on product and blockchain, but her role also encompasses solving problems wherever they exist and finding pathways to success where previously none existed. As a blockchain expert, this role has taken her to Switzerland (where she presented the technology to the Bank of International Settlements), has seen her leading the charge on Cornerstone (a blockchain based real-estate solution), and helping CryptoKitties (the world's most successful blockchain game) make blockchain accessible to everyday consumers.
“Digital scarcity and true ownership have the power to unlock the untapped potential of digital art.”
