While growing up, if Sam Enrico Williams had known that his mum’s kitchen will be his instrument to being a multi-millionaire by designing one of the world leading cryptocurrencies, he would have stayed more in the kitchen.
Born in Nigeria on September 15 1979, Sam and his identical twin brother Steve Enrico overcame all challenges to make a wave for themselves by being top businessmen in the United Kingdom.
Their mum, a chef and their dad an accountant, left their homeland Nigeria in the seventies in search of greener pasture in Britain.
Landing in Uk, the Enricos settled in a very tough community Brockley in South London. Sam and his brother were exposed to a lot of violence and discrimination waking up every day on their parlour couch with fear of being victimized by the children in the neighbourhood when they head to school.
Sam attended Crofton Comprehensive School in Lewisham now named Prendergast Ladywell School were he studied Advanced Business.
While in school, Sam was good with the computer, which influenced his proficiency in computer programming at the school’s sixth form.
After leaving school, Sam and his twin brother started various businesses such as a magazine company called Ramp Magazine(lifestyle) and Coincerge Magazine before furthering researches on financial markets which led him to the industry of cryptocurrency.
Sam created crypto coins Zloadr in 2015 and DocTailor, aimed at legal professionals in 2018.
The Zloadr, which was set up to help small and medium-sized businesses with cash flow. Within the first five days of launching, demand was so strong that the initial batch of tokens was worth more than £8 million.
His DocTailor is aimed at presenting users with automated solutions to facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract or agreement.
Sam’s new innovation Doctailor also contribute to the ability to move money around the world and to conduct transactions between different currencies quickly and securely.
The DocTailor platform launched with 500 million DOCT’s, later burning 63 million.
Since it was created in 2018, DOCT became the primary payment method for the platform and ZDR, a toke used on Zloadr being the secondary.
With a nominal fee, referred to as a base fee, associated with each operation in a transaction. The fee charges was initiated in a bid to discourage intruders from flooding the platform (otherwise known as a DoS attack).
Apart from the cryptocurrency business, Sam’s other investments include a stake in the Michelin-starred Restaurant Story in London Bridge and a London estate agency chain.
Although Sam is still focused on creating platforms that offer seamless services to people in the blockchain,he is also a partner at Knight Capital, a private equity and asset management firm focusing on building commercially viable solutions, services and products.
