Kanishk Parashar is CEO and founder of Coin, a Bluetooth Low Energy Connected Device that will replace every other card you own. Prior to launching Coin, Kanishk attended John Hopkins University and led technical positions in companies such as eBay and PayPal. From there, Kanishk realized there was a huge need to bring simplicity and familiarity back into the payment system, which lead to the launch of Coin in 2013. In November 2013, Kanishk launched Coin's crowdfunding campaign to the public. It quickly became the most successful independently crowdfunded campaign ever after reaching its $50,000 campaign goal in just 40 minutes.
