Robert Paul Dunlap


Robert P. Dunlap is the Founder and Executive Trustee of META 1 Coin Trust, a gold-backed cryptocurrency with a social mission based on advancing abundance and equity for Humanity.

Robert is a military veteran who left college to serve in the U.S. Army 1st Infantry during the Gulf War in 1990.

His experience as a soldier provided self-discipline and unwavering tenasity that has served him during civilian life as well. Following his tour of duty, he completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Houston.

Robert was recruited while completing his degree by a large Houston - based pharmaceuticals company in need of major technology system upgrades. He was promoted to Chief Information Officer after only a couple of months at 25 years of age – the youngest member of the team. He quickly learned that dealing with office politics can be more cumbersome than implementing sophisticated technological solutions.

He served a lucrative niche as an IT contractor, saving companies tens of millions of dollars. He gained equity in client firms while helping transform insolvent companies into profitable enterprises.

Robert later completed graduate school from the University of London with a Master’s Degree in Computer Science. His focus was Artificial Intelligence, and he published a thesis named the "Autonomous Business System" in 1996. He later successfully deployed technology based on his thesis.

Following graduate school, he became certified in major IT and financial disciplines before founding a tech firm in 1997 during the height of the dot-com era. After the market crashed, he remained in a strong position and bought out competitor companies to expand his business.

In 2004

In 2004, he started investing in companies with operational cash and technology leadership. His shrewd business acumen quickly led to annual sales exceeding $150 million by 2008. One business deal included patents and intellectual property, enabling him to exit very well within four years.

In 2012

In 2012, Robert developed an AI system that traded foreign currency's with astonishing accuracy. Based in Europe, he was trading and establishing banking facilities for trading using this system.

This business was his most lucrative to date, allowing him to retire in 2015. He lived on the beach with his new wife and META 1 Trustee in Boca Raton, Florida. He took some time off to relax and after a year decided to pursue some new business ideas. He is more philanthropic now, with a focus on service to Humanity.

He formed META 1 Coin Trust, a Private Trade Bank and has established trading platforms leveraging commodity holdings for high yield trades.

While traveling and doing business in Europe, Robert began working on his enhanced legal status since he found it challenging to operate as a traditional legal fiction. Currently, he only operates in a private legal aspect and does nothing publicly in a commercial sense. His current legal status protects his interests fully and assists in his work.

Robert has 4 children and resides in several preferred locations.
He collects fine art, lift weights, and enjoys life
