Description

Hola G&Gs,
Welcome to my podcast, I'm Trekk. In 2018, I left the traditional work force and crossed the #crypto fiat line. Since then I’ve been on the roller coaster being self-employed.

In the podcast, I share my trek on the ups and downs to make a living in crypto space and growing #gigeconomy.

I share these stories while talking to various people in the growing blockchain industry. My style is conversational like #JoeRogan meets #Tavis Smiley meets #Godfry. One segment is called Everyday People and the other is called Conversations With.

I hope you enjoy. Reach out if you want to share.

Hola Hola G&Gs, This is a specially pushed ep in memory of Felty256.  As I said the crypto space lost a good dude. Condolences to the family and the Philly crypto community. This may seem unrealistic but it never occurred to me that someone I interviewed could transition on. And he was the last person I was expect to year that kind of news about. I'm glad I got to know talk with him. Irony, I was going to hit him up about making Coinvention this year. Which I knew he would be at. Felty was very supporting of the local crypto Philly scene. I think this is a deserving moment to honor the Philly native and founder of. Vidyen As you'll hear in this part, we talk about a couple of different things like his passion for what he was doing in the space, him questioning how to place a monetary value on what we do in the space, and even getting a intern. Yeah, we covered a lot. He was one of the smart people I know in Philly. I'm glad I had the opportunity to know him.
Hola Hola G&Gs, This is a specially pushed ep in memory of Felty256.  As i said the crypto space lost a good dude. Condolences to the family and the Philly crypto community. It's funny we talked about doing this interviews for months before actually talking.  We finally did a few months back. This ep wasn't supposed to come out this week. But I think this is a deserving moment to honor the Philly native and founder of Vidyen. It was a web browser mining software. As you hear in this first part of the convo, we talk about a couple of different things eventually getting back to how he got into  the crypto space.  The second part of the conversation will follow this episode.
    Hola Hola G&Gs, So here is the rest of the conversation with Bitcoin Zay. This is a special episode for a few reasons. In this episode, I talk with Isaiah Jackson AKA Bitcoin Zay. Zay is half of the dynamic duo of The Gentlemen of Cryptos. You can find them on Youtube and iTunes. This is Zay’s second time on the podcast, making him my first repeat guest. Thanks again for coming one the podcast. It was great timing to semi-relaunching of the podcast with Zay's new book Bitcoin and Black America. As I've said in my social media, going forward I will be promoting more blacks in the crypto space and black in tech. Yes, we’re coming out kicking, lol. In the second, half we talk about how people generally get involved in cryptos because of price but then stay for the tech. And how once you really get things like Bitcoin, it changes how you understand money. Not to mention the career opportunists you see opening up the more the technology in integrated into society. Last thing G&Gs, I don't usually put my name behind or push anything. Even sponsored products or services get a limited mention. Especially when it comes to the podcast. But this book is something I think everyone needs to read. But black american needs to read and understand what is coming down the pike. Again thank you Zay for writing this book and keep doing what you do.

   Hola Hola G&Gs, So here it is finally a new EP. Yes, it has been a while. This is a special episode for a few reasons. In this episode, I talk with Isaiah Jackson AKA Bitcoin Zay. Zay is half of the dynamic duo of The Gentlemen of Cryptos. You can find them on Youtube and iTunes. This is Zay’s second time on the podcast, making him my first repeat guest. I’m honored that he agreed to come on. But more importantly, I’m using this episode as a new semi-relaunching of the podcast that coincides with Zay’s new book Bitcoin and Black America. I’m excited about this episode because it meets of my new goals in promoting blacks in the crypto space and black in tech. Yes, we’re coming out kicking, lol. We talk about his reasons for writing the book. And how he hopes it helps Black American understand and take advantage of the opportunities blockchain technology and Bitcoin present. We also talk about how far the crypto community has come and the multitude of access point people have to become involved in the space. Last thing G&Gs, this is part I of a two-part conversation as I rambled on for a while, lol. I know, I’m still working on it. But Zay does make jokes and gives a tidbit or two that’s not directly written in the book.

  Hola Hola G&Gs, So in this EP, I talk with Dr Tiffany Gray. I meet her when I co-organized a panel on diversity and inclusion in the crypto space. She was one of the panelists. I didn't get to talk with her much then but paid attention to her social media postings. I was interested to hear more about her thoughts are on how blockchain could help the medical/healthcare industry. She definitely has some ideas on how this disruptive technology could be applied. But she also voices concern about what it means to just dump people's personal medical data into their laps of people without providing them the education on what it means to maintain positive control, managing it, or monetizing it. As you will hear, she shares how she came into the space and what she understands about integrating blockchain into her field of expertise. Namely, that you have to ask the tough questions on how will this be practically implemented and what effect will it have on the bigger society? Dr Gray where's a number of hats and this positions her in the key to be asked questions and give the big wigs real answers. Also please like, share, heart, thumbs up, leave a comment, or ask a question, and all the other call to action stuff your suppose to say. I can't get the word out without you'll. So thanks in advance and I appreciate you taking the time to listen.  Guest: Dr Tiffany Gray Music By: Manny Man IG @MannyMan Email yungmannytwv@gmail.com  Follow me: Twitter @Smarttrekken IG @TrekkenCryptos Sponsor: www.TrekkSmartConsulting.com

 Hola Hola G&Gs, So in this EP, I talk with Chika Ota. We get into how she got into here current job in the crypto space which allows her to travel the world.  And that's what allowed me to met her in Chile last year.  Chika's journey into the crypto space highlights that pass careers or where you came from doesn't stop you from entering into the space.  I'm always amazed as to how many people still think you have to be a techie person to get in. I tell people all the time, there are so many options for what you can do. It's just a matter of figuring out what works for you. As you'll hear we talk about more than just here intro story. Chika brings up a point about something I've noticed more since talking with more people out side the US. Make sure to explain your blockchain and crypto projects in  more than English. It matters more than people think, seriously. And don't forget the culture of the market you looking to enter matters.

Hey G&Gs, So this is a snippet of my convo with Chicka Ota And yes that is actually her name.

Hole Hola G&Gs, In this ep, I get to talk with Silvana Lopez. I met her in Santiago Chile in 2018 at LaBitConf. A lawyer by trade who then went to MIT and co-founded a tech company that deals with hackathons and using them to find solutions to help real communities. Silvana's journey isn't  all about crypto or blockchain, but as I say G&Gs it's going to take all types for use to reach mass adoption.  We talk about her running a hackathon with IBM in Peru and looking at how implementations of any solution isn't just about dropping the project in the hands of the community and then walking away. You have to then measure the effects of the solution and how it's being used at the ground level.  With more technology our ability to connect is continual growing and online hackathons are being coming more and more popular; Silvana sees this and gets into what made her do the company.  We talk about about this and a bunch of other things as usual.  Also please like, share, heart, thumbs up, leave a comment, or ask a question, and all the other call to action stuff your suppose to say. I can't get the word out without you'll. So thanks in advance and I appreciate you taking the time to listen.  Guest: Amber Scott Music By: Manny Man IG @MannyMan Email yungmannytwv@gmail.com  Follow me: Twitter @Smarttrekken IG @TrekkenCryptos Sponsor: www.TrekkSmartConsulting.com

Hey G&Gs, Here is a snippet of my convo with Silvana Lopez. In this snippet Silvana is talking about not just having hackathons to trying and solve a problems but also measuring the aftermath of the results of implementing it. In my opinion a lot of the people looking to offer products or services don't take the second half into their plans. Remember the full Ep will follow this snippet. So make sure to listen and hear the full breakdown of our conversation. Guest: Silvana Lopez Follow me: Twitter @Smarttrekken IG @TrekkenCryptos Sponsor: www.TrekkSmartConsulting.com

Once I heard her mention cryptos, I had to have her on the podcast. And she was nice enough to agree to coming on.  So here we are sharing her story about what made her get into in the space. Angel is the perfect example of how even people with a technical background can come into the space and still start from the same level as nurse or mechanic. .

Hola Hola G&Gs, So in this EP, I talk with the Mike Salvi. He is the first crypto comedian I had the pleasure of meeting through Nathan Hauk (Nat knows very interesting people.) The Philly native understands blockchain and cryptos. But more importantly, he knows how to make it funny. To the point, that he was able to do last minute open mic act for Fuffly Pony (if you don't know who that is Presearch Monero) in Vegas last year. As you heard in the snippet mike talks about getting on the train early for this nitch. To be clear he's not the only comedian working on making a name for themselves in the space. In the beginning, he did shy away from the title of Crypto Comedian. But eventually he did embrace the label and he's glad to be one of the early ones in the space. As you listen, we talk about more than just making jokes. We talk about what were the pros of the bear market, a interesting town call Portsmouth New Hampshire, and OG Derrick R Freemon. And as always Mike doesn't disappoint in in conversation. He made me lol and think at the same time. Also please like, share, heart, thumbs up, leave a comment, or ask a question, and all the other call to action stuff your suppose to say. I can't get the word out without you'll. So thanks in advance and I appreciate you taking the time to listen.  *sorry about the audio about half way through.

  Hola Hola G&Gs, So in this EP, I talk with Dr. Richard Molock.  I co-organized a panel on diversity and inclusion in the crypto space at  Bowie State. And had the chance to met Richard. He made some very insightful points about how even in America there are issues with locations being a barrier to entry into cryptos. We kept in contact and he was interested in sharing his story. We talk about some of the basic things to remember and how this new technology is creating new jobs and opportunities and people can take advantage of. For towns who relied heavily on production plants, those days of lifetime work are long gone. The older and new generation need to understand what blockchain technology can mean for their future.  If you want to get into the space but have been scared to cross the line. I hope this EP motivates you to make that next move. It's not as hard as you think. If you or anyone you know is interested in sharing their crypto story. Please reach out and lets set some time up to talk. I would love to have you on and share your story. That's what this whole thing is about, after all, connecting people together.
