Mark Barry

Team Lead

Born and bred in Scotland, Mark Barry has firmly established himself as a community member, dedicated to build and improve the lives of others in the community. Long before assuming leadership over the Mooncoin project, Mark created his own specialist contracting company, which has led him to travel to and work with people throughout the UK over the last 15 years. Besides his dedication to his company, family and the Mooncoin project (his extended family), he is an avid music fan and talented football (soccer) player. Being attuned to community life as well as team spirit and upon realising that the Mooncoin project was in dire need of a true dev & support team, Mark established himself as a calm, direct and easy-going member of the Mooncoin community. In 2018, he committed himself to bring the moon project back to life, unite the Mooncoin community and foster its growth. To this end, he was instrumental in bringing together people with skill, experience and professionalism to form the Mooncoin Reborn team. Mark’s remaining challenge now is to continue to drive the Moon project forward towards becoming a platform with real-world uses, supporting communities around the globe.
