PROFILES IN CRYPTO-AWESOME: BROCK PIERCE

Sat Jul 28, 2018 1:25 pm

Child-actor, serial-entrepreneur, pre-YouTube content creator, MMORPG milker, early bitcoin adopter, and co-creator of two of the top ten cryptocurrencies — number-9 on Forbes’ Richest People in Crypto is donating his entire $1 billion fortune to rebuild Puerto Rico into Cryptopia. Welcome to the weird world of Brock Pierce.

CHARACTER PROFILE
It’s fair to say that cryptocurrency has its share of colorful characters — from the seemingly ever-present crypto-jester John McAfee to the almost never-present anarchist hacker Amir Taaki.

It also isn’t rare to hear of former child actors falling from grace in the pursuit of one demon or another. Brock Pierce may be the result when that pursuit ends up leading to a budding cryptocurrency called bitcoin.

All of 5′ 4″ in a cowboy hat, carrying a satchel full of botanical ‘remedies,’ he might not be what you’d expect from the chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation. But he has also been on the founding teams of Blockchain Capital, DNA, the first ever ICO, and cryptocurrencies EOS and Tether.
