Joe Cammarata has spent decades as a leader on the cutting edge of financial technology disruption.
Mr. Cammarata began his career at Datek where he pioneered NASDAQ market orders. There, he developed an internal cross trade that would eventually become the Island electronic communication network (ECN). He then orchestrated the growth of Datek Online, which was later sold to Ameritrade for just under $1.4 billion.
Mr. Cammarata then co-founded Sonic Financial Technologies in 1998 where he developed the first Market Data Aggregator and Smart Order Router. As the CEO of Sonic, he led the company to a successful acquisition by The Bank of New York in March of 2004.
Joe is a globally recognized thought leader, innovator, inventor and first adopter of some of the foremost advances in financial technology spurring the paradigm shift of the financial industry. After developing a number of “first-in-kind” technologies, his companies were pursued for purchase by The Bank of New York and various hedge funds.
In early 2009, Mr. Cammarata began mining bitcoin and recognized its power as a global currency. He adapted his company Speedroute to include digital currency trading and mining, in addition to its smart order routing and execution platform.
In 2015, Overstock.com purchased Speedroute and renamed it to tZero, creating the blockchain FinTech division of Overstock. Under Mr. Cammarata’s leadership, tZero traded the first “bond” on the blockchain and executed the first Digital Public Security transaction.
On December 4, 2019, Investview (OTC: INVU) announced Mr. Cammarata as the new CEO, providing strategic guidance and technology development to reach the company’s objectives of successfully entering the high speed processing and BigData arena.
Joe said, “I have spent the last 28 years originating and developing financial technologies that have changed capital markets. Further, I monetized those technologies and created value for those companies which were ultimately sold at a much higher value.
My track record is to initiate, innovate, disrupt, and build value."
