He is a leading spokesperson for Bitcoin, Blockchain, ICOs and cryptocurrencies, having won the Bitcoin US Marshall’s auction in 2014, investing in over 50 crypto companies, and having led investments in Coinbase, Ledger, Tezos, and Bancor, among others.

Arguably, social media, crowdsourcing and growth hacking are all outgrowths of viral marketing.
