After graduating in Business Finance at Durham University and Finance at Cambridge University, Vytautas co-founded SpectroCoin – an all-in-one solution for cryptocurrencies which
currently has over 1,000,000 registered users. Operating in the digital sphere for a number of years, Vytautas and his partners have observed that payment solutions offered for new types of online business, such as cryptocurrency exchanges, are very limited. Also, such solutions are usually offered by small niche players who do not last long. To counter this problem, he decided to start Bankera – a bank account alternative for digital businesses, which was launched in early 2020. As an entrepreneur, Vytautas seeks to help people and SMEs to deal with digital payments.
Since the economic activity is clearly moving online, he aims to address the financial needs arising from this shift by developing frictionless cutting-edge solutions. Vytautas sees a gap between academia and applied finance and tries to eliminate it by being active in both areas. Therefore, he is continuing his academic career as a researcher of blockchain technology applications.
