Enrique Rodriquez

CEO & Founder

Enrique started researching blockchain as a student at UofL in 2015. As a forward-thinking individual Enrique started applying the technology to his job specifically dealing with the supply chain at UPS World Port. Soon after, Enrique became obsessed with the technology, the community, and the philosophical views behind it. After navigating the space for years and hundreds of hours of research, he found that online education was fragmented and inconsistent with a major lack of trust and interaction. Enrique had always been entrepreneurial so in 2017 Founded Crypto Consulting Group LLC at 22 with a goal to effectively educate the digital investor. CCG provides think-tank knowledge and clarity to the digital currency world through individual and community education, engagement, and insight.

Maximilian Ferarro

Marketing & Content Manager

Max found his start in Cryptocurrency two years ago when Ethereum was around $10.  Not knowing what he just got himself into, Max was surprised by the growth over a few months.  Looking to learn more about blockchain technology and cryptocurrency, Max realized how hard it was for a new user to build a sound understanding. He, like so many others, found that online guides seemed to always do half the job, and one could never find all of their answers from a single source. He saw potential for Crypto Consulting Group to be that answer and helped build the infrastructure. Max ensures our content is acceptable for you, all while studying Marketing and Communications at the University of Louisville.
