Chief Executive Officer

Andrea Bonapersona is a serial entrepreneur, with several technology startups under his belt. He has been developing mobile applications and video games since the age of 12, learning C programming on his own. After obtaining a degree in software engineering and a master's degree in management, he started early on in the blockchain sector and immediately saw opportunities crossing with the video game sector, which he is passionate about.

In 2015, he developed Goldminer, an application designed to allow millions of gamers who own powerful graphics cards to make their computing power available to the Ethereum network, and to be paid in exchange. The application, entirely anonymized and very profitable for users, was immediately a great success, the source code was bought by a Web 3 entrepreneur in 2017. Proud of this experience, Andrea continues to advise many companies (Lagardère, Bertelsmann, CNRS) and investment funds on their software solutions.

He then co-founded the video game and esports company Arcadium, which provides services to League of Legends players, among others, and has recently completed several fundraisings. The idea of Trendex, which he had in his youth, was able to germinate in 2020, when he realized that the market had become mature enough to make it a reality.After several months of hard work, he put together a team and decided to join Sébastien Borget of The Sandbox and Nicolas Alfonsi of Jellysmack in the adventure to propel Trendex to the top.

It is the entry to the prestigious YCombinator that signs the beginning of a great adventure with the greatest talents of the planet. Andrea is now technical and strategic director of Trendex, as well as investor and advisor for Web3 projects related to contemporary art and gaming.
