Alexandra (Lexy) Prodromos is business development manager at Bloq, a fintech company specializing in dApps and blockchain technology. In that role, she promotes Bloq's software and venture initiatives.

She also volunteers as executive director of the Chicago Blockchain Center.[1]

Background

Prodromos heard about smart contracts in 2014 and became interested in exploration their application to legal contracts. In learning more about them she eventually discovered, and became infatuated with, blockchain technology.

As a college graduation gift, her parents gave her a ticket to the Consensus conference in New York City, where she met Vitalik Buterin and heard Matthew Roszak, the founder of Bloq and the Chicago Blockchain Center, speak.

She also heard the governor of Delaware present the Delaware Blockchain Initiative, and decided that Chicago could be a hub for blockchain as well. She approached the newly created Illinois Department of Innovation and Technology with a proposal and ended up working with them on a blockchain workgroup as the only non-government participant. With the help of a number of other agencies, they created the Illinois Blockchain Initiative (IBI).

She met Rozsak again at a later conference and he hired her for the position at Bloq.[2]

Education

Prodromos earned a Bachelor's degree in political science from Pepperdine University and a Masters of Science in Information Systems from Northwestern University.
