Creating the world’s first self-sovereign bank!
We’re looking for someone passionate, driven and community focused to nurture and grow our young community of Tokenauts.
Why are we here?
At TokenCard we believe in a new era for financial services. One where people have complete independence, choice and control of their assets. One which takes the user-focused design of the challenger banks and joins it together with user-focused technology, only possible through the power of the blockchain where transparency and decentralisation oversee actions unlike ever before.
What are we BUIDL’ing?
We’re building the first self-sovereign bank, giving people 100% control of their assets. Store them securely in our wallet, spend them with our payment card. We never touch or hold them ourselves. It’s simple, elegant and secure, and amongst the first practical authentic use-cases on the Ethereum blockchain.
Community at TokenCard
We’ve built a small and passionate community globally across our Reddit and Discord channels who give us amazing feedback and support. As we get closer to launching our first products we’re looking for someone to take TokenCard community engagement to the moon; looking after our existing members, introducing new people to our mission and making sure that community remains at the core of everything we do.

More About Us:
Mel Gelderman, CEO and co-founder of TokenCard has always been passionate about transformative technology. Building an algae-biofuel business (Algae-Planet) early on, he would later leave university to pursue his blockchain vision in South-East Asia. He first encountered Ethereum in 2014 and has been raving about it ever since, obsessed with its potential to create a tokenised world. This first led to him to join a Taiwanese blockchain company (Digital Treasury Corporation) as a consultant, focused on integrating smart contracts into geothermal power stations.
After meeting Vitalik in Taiwan, Mel and David Hoggard decided to pursue their own vision and co-founded TokenCard. They launched to the world shortly after Devcon 2 in Shanghai. In early 2017 they raised $17m in one of the first decentralised crowd sales.
Our marketing team is led by Anna Mostyn Williams. Anna has over 10 years experience overseeing the development, launch and marketing of digital & physical products, working with world-leading brands such as Xbox, Jagex (on the iconic Runescape franchise) and The Discovery Channel.
