Where are you from and/or where do you live?
What are your interests?
30 year computer software engineer, years of self-study in finance, economics, business.
Has life been kind to you?
I appreciate my blessings while always striving to be better. I believe in looking inward for growth and reaching out to help others. Happiness often derives from an inner sense of purpose. Much of the culture is too negative so I avoid those who spread that negativity.
What brought you to Bitcoin?
I was into P2P computing and ideas about money 20 years ago as a hobby, but I dropped away from those interests in mid-2000s. Funny I could have been very early to Bitcoin had I maintained those interests. When I first heard of it early on, it was the negative reputation of its users that kept me away. By 2017 I was digging on my own after figuring out many so-called crypto experts online were fools. By then, I was a stereotype user on Coinbase and researching many ERC-20 tokens projects. I had not found the system I was looking for. I got clarity after reading 'Life After Google' by George Gilder immediately when it came out in 2018. This led me to listening to Dr Wright videos by the end of that year. Everything about Bitcoin now made total sense. By Spring 2019 I was on board with BSV. Since I had a lot of common values and understanding, it didn't take much to convince me.
What does Bitcoin (SV) mean to you?
Bitcoin's true vision has brightened up my hopes for the future tremendously. I had given much of my life to developing technology. Yet, over the last decade it appeared that we were heading toward some dystopian outcome for technology's impact on our lives. Now I see so much more opportunity for many people to participate and benefit worldwide from the growth of this technology.
Anything you want to promote?
About 5 years ago, I had an idea. I ran the numbers of a fun business that did not exist. I saw how necessary technology was trending. This was what led me to researching the space. I kept looking for the right technology model until I found BSV. Today, the business still does not exist. As I see the BSV's ecosystem being rapidly built in recent months, I think it's possible. The numbers are astounding in terms of potential if the idea works out. Who wouldn't want a business that could onboard 10 million normies in the real world to BSV, highly profitably and generating massive transactions? Meanwhile, I'm a mature worker with a day job which requires intense mindshare and comes with high responsibility. So I need to figure out what makes sense for me. That's where I'm at now.
Ed. George Gilder is a legend, thank you KC!
