  • Christopher Pavlesic

    Chris is Alpha’s CEO and Founder. Having first learnt about Bitcoin in 2010, Chris has a rich experience working in the Bitcoin industry. His first startup, Coinstop, was the first reseller of hardware wallets in Australia. Having successfully generated over $1m in sales in the first 12 months of business, he knew that this industry has no shortage of excitement and opportunity. 

    Chris also co-founded Australia’s first privacy-focused software development non-for-profit, and continues to help grow the Bitcoin circular economy, working with the largest Bitcoin e-commerce business in the world - Bitrefill.

    First an educator, Chris has hosted, spoken at and participated in countless Bitcoin events, helping others navigate through the myriad of complexities.

    An entrepreneur at heart, Chris loves taking ideas from nothing and finding ways to turn them into something. Using the template of building things that he himself would use, Alpha is yet another venture that tries to fill a gap in the market - Bitcoin mining for anyone and everyone.
