Crypto Dad’s Warning: Guns can be rare in the geeky world of cryptocurrencies. Mainly populated by clumsy “crypto bros” and rich and handsome new guys can be hard to find here. But don’t worry, we’ve solved the problem.
Crypto Daddy n. 1: Craig Sellars
This Cannon is a blockchain innovator and co-founder of Tether. Yes, Craig is the inventor of the stablecoin. Tether is the most traded cryptocurrency in the world, just that. Today, Craig Sellars has been an informal stablecoin consultant since he left ship in 2016. He claims to have invented NFTs in 2015 at vAtomic Systems, along with Eric Pulier.
He currently works as the chief technologist of Bitcoin’s Omni Layer. Incidentally, Craig has a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the Georgia Institute of Technology. And of course he can talk to me in code all day.
Crypto Daddy # 2: Eric Pulier
This charming gentleman says he invented the NFT. He is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, columnist, technologist, public speaker and founder of more than fifteen companies.
In 2015, Eric Pulier thought the world would benefit from the existence of NFTs. Thinking beyond art, he says he “proposed non-fungible tokens on blockchain that would come to life with 3D graphics, animations, sounds and programmability. These NFTs would move seamlessly between augmented and virtual reality, change state based on external events. , would be redeemable and collectible and would help usher in the future of online participation and commerce. “
He called this first NFT concept “Vatom”, short for “virtual atom“(Virtual atom). This was the first intelligent NFT. And can we talk a second about this name, Vatom, which is still a lot sexier than the NFT name? Sexy … like Eric Pulier.
Eric has raised over $ 1 billion for the companies he founded. Mr. Pulier, you still have some tokens for me, right?
Crypto Daddy # 3: Roger Ver
We nicknamed him “Bitcoin Jesus” … and he’s also a step above the real Jesus. Roger is a bit of a controversial character, which obviously only adds to his sexy factor. Mr. Ver invested early in Bitcoin and cryptocurrency-related startups and became a true cryptocurrency evangelist. He now prefers to promote Bitcoin Cash, however, because he believes this altcoin fits the original purpose of the “Bitcoin White Paper”.
Roger is originally from Silicon Valley. When he was young, he sold fireworks on eBay, which gives him that alluring bad boy look … he even pleaded guilty to a crime related to his fireworks and spent 10 months behind bars, then yes. is transferred to Japan. He renounced his US citizenship in 2014 and now travels on a St. Kitts and Nevis passport. Roger Ver is also the CEO of Bitcoin.com. And as for my Bitcoin Daddy, the position is open, Roger.
Crypto Daddy # 4: Arthur Hayes
And here’s another bad boy! Could it be a recurring theme? Come on, with arms like that, you will forgive us.
Arthur Hayes is a graduate of the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. Known as a banker, entrepreneur and businessman, he co-founded BitMEX with Ben Delo and Samuel Reed.
Arthur first became interested in Bitcoin in 2013, after reading Satoshi Nakamoto’s white paper. He then co-founded BitMEX in 2014.
The BitMEX platform has been accused of being involved in illegal and reprehensible activities. In 2020, Hayes and his co-founders were indicted by the United States Department of Justice for an illegal operation. BitMEX eventually agreed to pay a $ 100 million fine to settle the matter. For his part, Arthur was sentenced to two years of probation, then was placed under house arrest for six months. He should have let me know; I would have visited it. Arthur is currently worth over a billion dollars. What else ??
Crypto Daddy # 5: Leigh Travers
Leigh Travers is the CEO of Binance Australia. This salt and pepper executive has spent a lot of time in the digital assets industry. Prior to joining Binance Australia, Leigh was Director of DigitalX Limited, the first publicly traded blockchain technology company. Leigh also has this Australian accent for him, which evokes the coast of the Sydney region.
And yes, he can totally cover me with his cryptocurrencies and tell me a thousand and one stories in his beautiful Australian accent.
