i have been in the bitcoin / blockchain space since 2012 and am a gigantic proponent of the types of problems the technology solves. i am fortunate enough to be a part of the relative inner circle of this great movement, attending / speaking / performing at many of the seminal conferences and meetups, and leveraging my pseudocelebrity in whatever ways i can to evangelize our Lords and Saviors Satoshi Nakamoto and the Spam God. i exist on steem thanks to @adept squatting a player's name for me - he is my de facto account trustee.
i am a cofounder/advisor of unsung.org, a 501(c)(3) non-profit and the spiritual successor to one of the most successful bitcoin charities, sean's outpost, also founded by jason king. we believe that using a public ledger like the blockchain is a great way to eliminate waste and hold non-profit organizations accountable to the donations they receive.
i also advise the academy school of blockchain, another j. king production, which aims to fill the need for companies and projects to have competent blockchain developers at their disposal. academy is a fully-accredited university and has the best blockchain curriculum advisors on the planet (including steem's own @dantheman). blockchain code is arguably some of the most important code ever authored in the history of humanity, and making sure this code is done correctly with so much at stake is important.
on the capitalistic side, i advise minerva, a novel solution to merchant processing, paying businesses back their card transaction fees. it is co-founded by some of my longstanding partners in the adult and mainstream affiliate marketing worlds. because we are all hacker nerds, we do not like the institutionalization of wealth, and love the empowering feeling of complex mathematics being our benevolent dictator.
