The former head of the infamous bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox Mark Karpeles said that the information that appeared a day earlier that he plans to launch a new project in the blockchain area is not entirely correct. He said in conversation with The Block.

According to a French entrepreneur who has been in Japan for the past few years, neither the blockchain nor the cryptocurrency will be involved in the Tristan Technologies model.

We’re working on new cloud solutions but with absolutely nothing on blockchain right now…This is [just] a technology company. I don’t think it would make sense at this point to work in the blockchain and crypto industry.

However, the former head of Mt. Gox does not exclude that such an opportunity will appear in the future.

We may do things with the blockchain in the future but as of now there are no plans.

In addition, Karpeles drew attention to the fact that Tristan Technologies cannot be considered a “new” company, since it has been around for about three years.

It’s not new, we’ve just been underground. We didn’t want to be too vocal until after the judgement.

According to Karpeles, in the coming year, Tristan Technologies intends to launch a new operating system to improve security and speed up software integration. He also expressed the hope that the project will be long-term and will lead to the emergence of new services.

In April last year, it was reported that Mark Karpeles works as the technical director of the American VPN provider London Trust Media.
