NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Blockchain-powered gaming platform TriForce Tokens is pleased to bring on board LDJ Capital Chairman David Drake as an adviser, strengthening its bid to revolutionize the multi-billion dollar online gaming industry with proven venture capital expertise.

Triforce Tokens has reached yet another significant milestone in recognition and acceptance, with renowned venture capitalist David Drake joining the team as an adviser. Already supported by established academia in the form of Coventry University and gaining formal legitimization through the backing of the UK government's Innovate UK, TriForce Tokens is well-positioned to make the necessary moves in the gaming industry.

With this latest development, TriForce Tokens stands to leverage on Drake's vast experience in managing and leading efforts across a variety of funds including realty, VC and hedge funds, for which he has acted as GP and LP investor with partners. He maintains unique access to 100,000 investors through The Soho Loft Media Group, which has been producing and sponsoring over a thousand finance conferences for over 15 years, partnering with media leaders such as Thomson Reuters and sponsors from Nasdaq and NYSE.

Drake chairs the New York-based multi-family office LDJ Capital which has more than 50 global directors and maintains relations with institutions and family offices that manage assets worth $1.5 trillion.

David Drake is considered as a founding father of crowdsourcing in the U.S., having founded the U.S. Crowdfund Intermediary Regulatory Advocates (CFIRA) and U.S. CrowdFunding Professional Association (CfPA).

He joins TriForce Token's growing advisory of gaming, blockchain and computer security experts that already includes individuals such as Vadim Bulatov, a marketing lead and games industry veteran with an impressive portfolio that includes World of Warships and Master of Orion.

"TriForce Tokens have big ambitions to shake up the gaming industry with the introduction of unique strategies to harmonize the games community. I recognize the exceptional aspects that this project is introducing to the industry and with its strong backing from the business division of a globally-recognized University in the UK plus the advisory team, it is a serious contender for this space. We look forward to helping this project grow and the team to realize their vision." – David Drake, Chairman at LDJ Capital.
