The previous article discusses the problems that the scientific publishing sector is dealing with nowadays. It also talks about how Orvium is going to address the problems with the effective solutions. Creating the solutions is not easy. It needs a great team that with extensive experience and strong background of the particular field. Here is the team of Orvium.
The company was founded by three people. The first one is Manuel Martin. He is a blockchain expert and in the Orvium project, he holds the position of senior project leader. He has an interest in using technology innovation that supports large collaboration. He has initiated many ideas regarding but data, machine learning, and critical data management. For your information, he has worked together with GSI, NASA-JPL, and other companies to build the most intricate scientific instrument. Do you know CERN LHC? It is one of the instruments that he has ever created. He has also become advisors for respective companies like BMW, Oracle, and many others.
The second founder is Antonio Romero. As a Big Data engineer, he has involved some R&D projects of some leading ICT companies as a big data leader. In addition, other respective institutions like GSI and EMBL-EBI have ever collaborated with him.
The other founder is Roberto Rabasco. He is the expert of designing and developing software with innovative and creativity in mind. He has ever collaborated with Just Eat, Deutsche Telekom, and other companies in the private sectors. He successfully created his own software house several years ago.

The Nebula phase was being conducted from the first quarter of 2017 to the first quarter of 2018. The other phases that follow are: Red Giant, Supernova, White Dwarf, Neutron Star, and Pulsar. Each phase has its own goals regarding the platform and the technology support, and timeline.
ICO Token Sale
Since the whitepaper was released, many people have asked about the ICO token sale period. Unfortunately, there is very little information about that. Even on the website, it is just informed that the sale is coming soon. There is no specific date revealed. From the roadmap, it can be seen that the token sale will be launched during the second quarter to the third quarter of 2018.
