Mr. Vijay Pravin Maharajan
Achiever's Success Story
Meet the man behind UnleashNFTs, Vijay Pravin Maharajan - Founder & CEO, bitsCrunch - Unleash NFTs
Worthy investment is everybody’s dream, and there should be no compromise for NFT artists and investors in this. With that thought as his mission, Vijay started cleaning up the NFT space with comprehensive data-driven NFT insights. As guardians of the NFT ecosystem, bitsCrunch’s tech-savvy and robust tools ensure security, authenticity, and experience. Vijay said – Bearing the CEO tag is like walking on a knife edge. With a constant endeavor to learn and grow, in the near future, I aim to bring a massive tech revolution into the NFT ecosystem.
People doubt you, challenge your dreams and put a barrier at every turn. But you always have a choice to take things in your stride and make a difference, says Vijay. Nothing lasts – neither failures nor success, he insists, that ideology helped him get stronger and break the shackles.
bitsCrunch is the brainchild of Vijay, who currently serves as the company’s CEO, located in Munich, Germany. Originally from Chennai, Vijay completed his graduation from Anna University in EIE and then his Masters in Electrical Electronics and Communication Engineering from the Technical University of Munich, Germany. His journey was quite a countable one.
Vijay started out as a Data Scientist at Telefonica, Germany. In the following years, he worked for Volkswagen AG before joining Siemens as an Analytics Solutions Expert. Data Analytics expertise led him to discover and be a part of the next big thing in technology.
Vijay, along with his co-founder, CTO, and other like-minded individuals who are tech-savvy, have been fascinated by how Blockchain and AI transform things in Data Analytics. But Data Analytics is an ocean, and they chose a niche – that’s NFTs. BitsCrunch was born from the desire to solve the dark side of NFTs with AI and Blockchain. Simply put, being a guardian of this ecosystem is unprecedented, says Vijay.
The company is now backed by Coinbase, Animoca, Polygon & Crypto.com Capital, and the vision with which the founder started this journey remains a long-term pursuit. The objective at bitsCrunch is to establish a safe NFT ecosystem and enrich the experience of the widening NFT community.
The journey started with launching Scour – a bitsCrunch exemplar product in eradicating washtrading across the NFT ecosystem. Within the first two months of incorporating Scour, clients reported a 40% decrease in washtrading, allowing them to decide and make the most out of their NFT assets with no ambiguity and hesitation.
Currently, Vijay and the team are helping the community with their tool Unleash NFTs, specifically designed with real-time market updates, configurable dashboards, and in-depth market reports so the NFT folks can make informed decisions.
Vijay believes – Every day is an accomplishment and blessing. For him, success stands as a motivation, and failures serve as a chance to do better. Constantly learning and unlearning is his mantra!
