Strategist, Entrepreneur, Visionary, Technology & Computing Pioneer, Alan Yong, is committed to bringing the advantages of digital currency to everyday consumers by executing winning strategies that he has implemented and refined over his 45 year entrepreneurial career. Alan has experience in nascent industries, having created the DTR, the world's first personal tablet computer in the early 1990’s as founder and CEO of Dauphin - a company best known for winning a $400m contract with the Pentagon and $150m manufacturing agreement with IBM. Alan is co-founder of Smokeys Gardens, one of the largest daylily growers in the world.
Alan draws from this experience to create the necessary winning strategies to bring his vision of a stable globally accepted digital currency to fruition. To do this, Alan co-founded an ecosystem centered on “DNotes”, a second generation Bitcoin alternative digital currency. The DNotes-centric ecosystem includes DNotesVault, and a series of self-directed investment plans that encourage savings for different age demographics called CRISPS. The ecosystem also contains several currency-neutral web properties: Cryptomoms.com to encourage female participation in the industry, and DCEBrief - a news website that aims to inform industry stakeholders that provides executive summaries on all content for the benefit of time sensitive top-level management. Alan is outspoken in his belief that digital currency has the potential to facilitate instant global trade at near-zero cost, allow private citizens to act as their own bank, insulate private wealth from local political turmoil, and stabilize the world economy. This he envisions digital currency to be greatest technological revolution since the internet leading to massive job growth and immense wealth creation.
Alan received his MBA from Northern Illinois University in 1976, having previously been awarded a full YMCA scholarship in 1971 to study an undergraduate degree in Behavioral Science.
