Johannes Schweifer was born in 1977 in Austria. He attended a Catholic boarding house in his middle-school years. He aspired to become a priest. Nonetheless, he decided for another career and in 1995 started to study chemical engineering at the Technical University in Vienna – Austria. In 2007 He graduated with a Ph.D. in the field of Theoretical Chemistry.
Start of his career
Exploring further challenges, he began a career in IT and worked as a consultant for a German company. In this position, he was traveling a lot through Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Six years later and after many many flight miles, he was raised to managing adviser and was a leader of two teams. One of them was in Germany and the second one in Switzerland.
Johannes Schweifer as an entrepreneur
The enormous potential of the future blockchain-technology excited him. After a few years – in 2013 he founded the first Bitcoin trading company of Switzerland. He built the company together with his former colleague. The business was thriving and succeeded, even facing a sharp headwind from banks and other financial institutions. Establishing such an undertaking was even harder because of the uncertain regulations of the early years.
He founded his next startup called BlockLogix in 2016. The company’s core business is the integration of blockchain-technology and the spreading of KnowHow. Soon several more his projects will grow in the adjacent countries – Liechtenstein and Switzerland.
