Blockchain & Cryptocurrency
I began investing in Bitcoin in 2014 and subsequently branched out into investments in Etherium based blockchain projects. My most recent investment is in Blockstack - an ambitious attempt at creating a technology similar to the fictional "Pied Piper" distributed internet platform on the hit HBO series "Silicon Valley".
Cryptocurrencies have the potential to do a lot of good in the world, particularly in emerging markets. Would the world look differently at refugees, if each refugee was able to carry their wealth with them digitally? Would citizens who live under corrupt governments benefit from the ability to preserve their wealth when the government destroys their savings by printing money?
Perhaps the most important feature of this technology is the enabling of complex multiparty transactions between untrusted parties.
