Terry was involved in the early days of the Internet; his first web site was ranked by Yahoo as the 9th most useful place to visit online. He holds multiple US patents in a variety of fields and sold his previous business to a NYSE listed company in 2001. As CEO of Refined Data Solutions Terry’s company develops Virtual Classroom platforms for some of the world’s leading Universities and Corporations and builds software that manages hundreds of millions of square feet of commercial and industrial real estate for Canada’s largest Property Managers. He is actively working at a number of levels to develop the vision for future Smart Buildings and a variety of Smart City initiatives. Terry began investing and experimenting with Bitcoin in early 2016, later evolving his interest to Ethereum. But his true passion for Distributed Ledger Technology came when he learned about IOTA – a 3rd generation DLT protocol that solves the failings of existing blockchain platforms. Terry is a currently a member of the Iota Evangelist Network and has been working very closely with the Founders of IOTA in Europe and the non-profit IOTA Foundation in Berlin, Germany to launch the bIOTAsphere, here in Toronto. The bIOTAsphere will be a self-sustaining, not-for-profit facility where multi-disciplinary teams can accelerate the development of real-world applications using IOTA. Together they will collaborate, interact, innovate and inspire, with the aim of creating a better world.
