In 2013, I learned about Bitcoin. Since then the world of blockchain and decentralized technologies have consumed most of my attention.

My main focus is Chorus One, a company I started in 2018 with my co-founder Meher Roy. Chorus One helps people and institutions stake cryptoassets and participate in Proof-of-Stake networks. It has become a successful company helping nearly ten thousand people stake billions.

I have also co-founded and co-host the podcast Epicenter in 2013. It's now the longest running blockchain podcasts. We've done almost 400 episodes and millions of downloads.

Finally, I'm deeply involved in the Cosmos ecosystem. I was originally COO of Tendermint and helped organize the Cosmos fundraiser and growing the initial team. And today, I'm on the foundation council of the Interchain Foundation, which funds a lot of the development in the Cosmos ecosystem.

Besides crypto, topics that I'm interested in include

  • Enterpreneurship
  • Investing
  • Buddhism and meditation
  • Carnivore diet
  • Longevity / life-extension
  • Psychedelics
  • Sports (currently surfing, kitesurfing and rock climbing)

I live in Cascais, near Lisbon, Portugal, with my wife and Ela and our little dog.
