Kaini Industries – Non Executive Director Vacancy (Relevant Technology)

Kaini Industries is an exciting not for profit company formed in 2014 based in Hull which is currently developing a product known as HullCoin. Using blockchain technology, users are rewarded with HullCoin by participating with organisations such as charities after they have undertaken something positive within the community including volunteering. Users can spend their HullCoin in shops and other retailers by gaining a discount on products and services.

  • Successfully scaling a technology product beyond a proof of concept.
