Cameron Chell has been an entrepreneur for over three decades. As a company architect, he builds teams of talented individuals who bring new services and technologies to the market. Some of his best-known projects include KodakOne and BitRail, among other projects he’s led as co-founder and Chairman of ICOx Innovations.
Q: You co-founded ICOx Innovations. Can you tell us more about what the company does?
Cameron Chell: ICOx Innovations designs and creates corporate currencies in partnership with established brands.
I really love that it’s a collaborative process. In partnership with established brands with large online communities, ICOx develops blockchain solutions with user-friendly, regulated, and branded corporate currencies to solve real-world problems.
Q: Can you give us some examples of brands you have partnered with?
Cameron Chell: Kodak holds a special place in my heart, in part because I, along with the rest of the ICOx team, helped co-found KODAKOne. It’s a blockchain-based image rights platform for professional photographers to take control of the use of their photographs. Today it is so hard for artists to monitor the usage of their work. KODAKOne lets them track this data more easily, giving them better control over the licensing and copyright of their photos. ICOx developed a cryptocurrency called KODAKCoin to power the platform and help photographers get paid fairly for their work.
Q: What is your favorite project you have worked on?
Cameron Chell: One recent project I am finding really satisfying is developing BitRail. BitRail is a blockchain infrastructure that enables entities to operate and issue regulatory compliant cryptocurrencies for payment within their own platforms.
BitRail provides companies and institutions an alternative choice to costly credit cards and other fee-heavy digital payment options.
Q: Do you have any advice for budding entrepreneurs?
Cameron Chell: I would say never stop trying. There are going to be people who don’t understand your ideas, but keep driving at your passion. Innovating can be a long and lonely process but it’s so worth it in the end.
Q: Finally, what is your mantra?
Cameron Chell: I’ve always lived by the question “What if?” It has led me to so many projects and innovations that started as just a small seed of curiosity in my head. People have called me a “serial entrepreneur” and I totally embrace that title. There are just too many ideas out there that it would be a shame to spend all my time on just one or two of them!Activate Social Media:
