by Chris Hayes - May 25, 2018, noon

We're very proud to announce that Peter Diamandis (of nearly countless successful ventures) has put a large vote of confidence in GUARD by joining our advisory team.

As many of you already know Guardian Circle has been working with XPRIZE on the Women's Safety Prize for the better part of two years.  That working relationship eventually introduced us to Peter Diamandis Founder/Chairman/CEO of XPRIZE.

Long story short; Peter liked what we were doing and we extended an invitation to join our advisory team, he graciously accepted the position earlier this week.

As an advisor Peter brings a wealth of experience as an entrepreneur with countless successful ventures under his belt as well as a long history in humanitarian efforts and impact investing.

We could expound more on his credentials and virtues but it's probably best to simply visit his website http://www.diamandis.com/ to learn more about him.

Santa Monica, CA, May 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 

Guardian Circle, the first global, decentralized emergency response system, today announced Peter Diamandis, XPRIZE Foundation Founder and CEO, has joined the startup’s GUARD token sale as an advisor and participant. The Guardian Circle platform gives users in an emergency situation immediate access to a designated circle of trusted friends, family and neighbors located closest to the crisis, significantly reducing the emergency response time and improving a victim’s chances for survival. Guardians who respond to requests for help are then rewarded in GUARD tokens, which can be redeemed for more services or sold for fiat currency.

Diamandis is an innovation visionary who has founded or co-founded 19 entrepreneurial ventures, including Singularity University, Human Longevity Inc., International Space University, and Planetary Resources. He launched the XPRIZE Foundation in 1994, which leads the world in designing and operating large-scale incentive competitions for “radical breakthroughs” that benefit humanity. XPRIZE is currently teaming with IBM to offer the IBM Watson AI XPRIZE, which in 2020 will give $5 million to the artificial intelligence system that gives the best TED Talk. Diamandis is also an engineer and Harvard University-trained physician, and in 2014, he was named one of Fortune’s World’s 50 Greatest Leaders. He advocates the importance of living with an abundance mindset.

“We are humbled and honored to earn the endorsement of one of the most influential names in innovation today,” said Mark Jeffrey, Co-founder and CEO of Guardian Circle.

“After learning of the immediate impact GUARD can offer its users and the alliances Mark has built around him, it was an obvious fit for me and the work I do,” said Peter Diamandis. “I look forward to working closely with Mark and his team, to save more lives and change the world for the better.”

Available for free on iOS, Apple Watch, Android and Alexa, Guardian Circle is currently used by tens-of-thousands and has established partnerships with Anu and Naveen Jain Women’s Safety XPRIZE, Upchannel, Bee Token, and 0Chain. The app was recently named as a finalist in Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas Awards.

The GUARD Token whitelist, an advanced registration for its token sale, is currently open to applicants where purchasers can receive a 20 percent bonus if they buy before the first five million tokens are sold. The token sale ends on June 1. Those interested in learning more can visit https://guardtoken.net/ or join the Telegram group here
