When I first met Brandon two years ago, he had just finished his undergrad degree in Neuroscience at Pitzer College. He was destined for medical school. Inspired by entrepreneurship and the emerging world of crypto, Brandon put med school on hold. He started investing in crypto while at university stemming from a fascination with Etherium.In the months that followed, he wrote and published “The Satoshi Sequence,” a seminal book that discusses how blockchain technology will continue to evolve. I read The Satoshi Sequence shortly after it was published, and continue to rate is as an outstanding overview of blockchain.In early 2018, Brandon started building a crypto mining operation. He also started a blockchain consulting business called BlockHash, which has evolved into the BlockHash Podcast that he now hosts. Visit the link to learn more:
