I am lucky to have been an active participant in the crypto space for over 5 years. I am currently a Principal at Blockchain.com Ventures, investing in and engaging with some of the best Entrepreneurs, Engineers, Inventors, and Investors in the industry. I am a partner at Hacked Ventures, which holds interests in a number of technology companies, including blockchain-boosted digital voucher company, SureGifts, and prominent Africa-based cryptocurrency exchange, Busha, where I am a Director. In my past life, I worked as a Senior Executive at prominent technology companies like Jumia, Venture Garden Group, and Greenhouse Capital. I received a Forbes 30 Under 30 award for my work in technology.
Alongside my activities in industry, I am immersed in academic research as a Doctoral Candidate at IE Business School, Spain, where I am studying in the field of Cryptoeconomics. I am also an Industry Associate at the University College London Centre for Blockchain Technologies (UCL CBT). I also engage in lecturing stints at universities and organizations focusing on Economics and Cryptoeconomics. I have a Master’s degree in Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) as a British Chevening Scholar, and a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance at the University of the West Indies, Barbados.
As a perk of my daily engagement in the crypto space, I come across content that I find to be incredibly valuable, or just enjoyable. I’m pleased to share them with you, and I hope they help you better-grasp developments in the exciting new cryptoeconomy.Samuel-Biyi
