Throughout my life I have been a Non-conformist so I truly relate to the underdog because I know what & how they feel. This is why I advocate for blockchain technology. I believe in equality and that’s why I got into blockchain. It is the technology that is the enabler and has the power to democratize society and break all social and racial barriers – in other words the community serves itself – a system that “runs by the people for the people”. My vision is to create a true equalizer – everyone from any community has access to equal opportunities.
The combination of creativity and technology is to understand how to apply technology to better our society. When you build something the first question you have to ask is “why are we building it, what is the purpose?” Once you figure out the purpose the technology is only a tool to execute this purpose.
