A revolutionary new way of managing digital currency has been created by a St John's graduate.
The recently-launched company, Elliptic, has secured more than £1million in funding to build a secure virtual "vault". The company was co-founded last year by James Smith, who graduated from St John's in 2004 with a degree in computer science. The team, which also includes colleagues Tom Robinson and Adam Joyce, has also been joined by another St John's graduate, Yacoob Kurimbokus, who studied with Smith.
