From the government labs in the defense department to the burgeoning blockchain technology market, Adam Lowe is on the cutting edge of innovation. In 2021, Lowe created Arculus, a cryptocurrency cold storage platform, which is disrupting the cryptocurrency wallet/storage market by making it as simple as possible for anyone to buy, sell, swap and store cryptocurrency in a safe and secure way. Lowe launched Arculus as a subsidiary of CompoSecure by leveraging the company’s expertise as a leading payment technology and card manufacturer.
Lowe is the Chief Innovation Officer at CompoSecure. He leads a team of engineers and technicians responsible for new product innovation and development, process innovation, and prototype design. Prior to CompoSecure, Lowe worked with U.S. defense and intelligence communities while a principal scientist at SRC Inc., a non-profit R&D company. At SRC, he led the company’s Biotechnology Advanced Technology Initiative, guiding a team developing classified technology.
Lowe holds a Ph.D. and MBA from Cornell University where he researched bio-nanotechnology, and a BS in Microbiology from Salisbury University. As a sought-after expert in technology, he was published in a variety of peer reviewed journals, authored technical book chapters, and is listed as an inventor on over a dozen patents and patents pending.
The growth of cryptocurrency is driving demand for a simple solution that delivers the mobility and state-of-the-art security needed to make cryptocurrency more viable for more consumers. The Arculus solution will broaden cryptocurrency adoption because of the familiar behavior consumers have using their payment cards, creating an improved user experience as compared to products currently on the market.6 October 2021
