We are a partnership of two folks living in Toronto. Mike, brings his experience as a technical lead at multiple data and analytics organizations. He designs and builds cloud-based data warehouses, largely intended to  analyze big data. Vivek brings to bear more than a decade of experience in data and analytics, as well as marketing strategy and execution. With strong industry experience and a passion for cryptocurrency, we can confidently move forward with this venture and responsibly manage this Canadian Cardano stake pool.

We really got involved in cryptocurrencies in the bull market of 2017 where we were fortunate enough to make a small profit at the peak of the market. This was the point at which we discovered Cardano and have been following the project consistently for the last several years. The goal of Cardano Canucks is to build a community of like minded folks who believe in Cardano and provide them a great stake pool experience.
