Can you give us a history of how you came to discover blockchain technology and where you are today?

I came into the space in 2013 when I was the co-founder of (now magnr) an online trading platform and bank, I left that role to explore technologies more dedicated to the blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. I have worked and consulted for a few companies in the space and I am an advisor for a few others as well. I also write my blog at and do some freelance writing. I also open to exploring new opportunities.
