Meet Brock Pierce, the Presidential Candidate With Ties to Pedophiles Who Wants to End Human Trafficking

thedailybeast.com | Sep. 20, 2020.
The “Mighty Ducks” actor is running for president. He clears the air (sort of) to Tarpley Hitt about his ties to Jeffrey Epstein and more.
In the trailer for First Kid, the forgettable 1996 comedy about a Secret Service agent assigned to protect the president’s son, the title character, played by a teenage Brock Pierce, describes himself as “definitely the most powerful kid in the universe.” Now, the former child star is running to be the most powerful man in the world, as an Independent candidate for President of the United States.
Before First Kid, the Minnesota-born actor secured roles in a series of PG-rated comedies, playing a young Emilio Estevez in The Mighty Ducks, before graduating to smaller parts in movies like Problem Child 3: Junior in Love. When his screen time shrunk, Pierce retired from acting for a real executive role: co-founding the video production start-up Digital Entertainment Network (DEN) alongside businessman Marc Collins-Rector. At age 17, Pierce served as its vice president, taking in a base salary of $250,000.
DEN became “the poster child for dot-com excesses,” raising more than $60 million in seed investments and plotting a $75 million IPO. But it turned into a shorthand for something else when, in October of 1999, the three co-founders suddenly resigned. That month, a New Jersey man filed a lawsuit alleging Collins-Rector had molested him for three years beginning when he was 13 years old. The following summer, three teens filed a sexual-abuse lawsuit against Pierce, Collins-Rector, and their third co-founder, Chad Shackley. The plaintiffs later dropped their case against Pierce (he made a payment of $21,600 to one of their lawyers) and Shackley. But after a federal grand jury indicted Collins-Rector on criminal charges in 2000, the DEN founders left the country. When Interpol arrested them in 2002, they said they had confiscated “guns, machetes, and child pornography” from the trio’s beach villa in Spain.
While abroad, Pierce had pivoted to a new venture: Internet Gaming Entertainment, which sold virtual accessories in multiplayer online role-playing games to those desperate to pay, as one Wired reporter put it, “as much as $1,800 for an eight-piece suit of Skyshatter chain mail” rather than earn it in the games themselves. In 2005, a 25-year-old Pierce hired then-Goldman Sachs banker Steve Bannon—just before he would co-found Breitbart News. Two years later, after a World of Warcraft player sued the company for “diminishing” the fun of the game, Steve Bannon replaced Pierce as CEO.
Collins-Rector eventually pleaded guilty to eight charges of child enticement and registered as a sex offender. In the years that followed, Pierce waded into the gonzo economy of cryptocurrencies, where he overlapped more than once with Jeffrey Epstein, and counseled him on crypto. In that world, he founded Tether, a cryptocurrency that bills itself as a “stablecoin,” because its value is allegedly tied to the U.S. dollar, and the blockchain software company Block.one. Like his earlier businesses, Pierce’s crypto projects see-sawed between massive investments and curious deals. When Block.one announced a smart contract software called EOS.IO, the company raised $4 billion almost overnight, setting an all-time record before the product even launched. The Securities and Exchange Commission later fined the company $24 million for violating federal securities law. After John Oliver mocked the ordeal, calling Pierce a “sleepy, creepy cowboy,” Block.one fired him. Tether, meanwhile, is currently under investigation by the New York Attorney General for possible fraud.
On July 4, Pierce announced his candidacy for president. His campaign surrogates include a former Cambridge Analytica director and the singer Akon, who recently doubled down on developing an anonymously funded, $6 billion “Wakanda-like” metropolis in Senegal called Akon City. Pierce claims to be bipartisan, and from the 11 paragraphs on the “Policy” section of his website it can be hard to determine where he falls on the political spectrum. He supports legalizing marijuana and abolishing private prisons, but avoids the phrase “climate change.” He wants to end “human trafficking.” His proposal to end police brutality: body cams.
His political contributions tell a more one-sided story. Pierce’s sole Democratic contribution went to the short-lived congressional run of crypto candidate Brian Forde. The rest went to Republican campaigns like Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, John McCain, and the National Right to Life Political Action Committee. Last year alone, Pierce gave over $44,000 to the Republican National Committee and more than $55,000 to Trump’s re-election fund.
Pierce spoke to The Daily Beast from his tour bus and again over email. Those conversations have been combined and edited for clarity.
You’re announcing your presidential candidacy somewhat late, and historically, third-party candidates haven’t had the best luck with the executive office. If you don’t have a strong path to the White House, what do you want out of the race?
I announced on July 4, which I think is quite an auspicious date for an Independent candidate, hoping to bring independence to this country. There’s a lot of things that I can do. One is: I’m 39 years old. I turn 40 in November. So I’ve got time on my side. Whatever happens in this election cycle, I’m laying the groundwork for the future. The overall mission is to create a third major party—not another third party—a third major party in this country. I think that is what America needs most. George Washington in his closing address warned us about the threat of political parties. John Adams and the other founding fathers—their fear for our future was two political parties becoming dominant. And look at where we are. We were warned.
I believe, having studied systems, any time you have a system of two, what happens is those two things come together, like magnets. They come into collision, or they become polarized and become completely divided. I think we need to rise above partisan politics and find a path forward together. As Albert Einstein is quoted—I’m not sure the line came from him, but he’s quoted in many places—he said that the definition of insanity is making the same mistake or doing the same thing over and over and over again, expecting a different result. [Ed. note: Einstein never said this.] It feels like that’s what our election cycle is like. Half the country feels like they won, half the country feels like they lost, at least if they voted or participated.
Obviously, there’s another late-comer to the presidential race, and that’s Kanye West. He’s received a lot of flak for his candidacy, as he’s openly admitted to trying to siphon votes away from Joe Biden to ensure a Trump victory. Is that something you’re hoping to avoid or is that what you’re going for as well?
Oh no. This is a very serious campaign. Our campaign is very serious. You’ll notice I don’t say anything negative about either of the two major political candidates, because I think that’s one of the problems with our political system, instead of people getting on stage, talking about their visionary ideas, inspiring people, informing and educating, talking about problems, mentioning problems, talking about solutions, constructive criticism. That’s why I refuse to run a negative campaign. I am definitely not a spoiler. I’m into data, right? I’m a technologist. I’ve got digital DNA. So does most of our campaign team. We’ve got our finger on the pulse.
Most of my major Democratic contacts are really happy to see that we’re running in a red state like Wyoming. Kanye West’s home state is Wyoming. He’s not on the ballot in Wyoming I could say, in part, because he didn’t have Akon on his team. But I could also say that he probably didn’t want to be on the ballot in Wyoming because it’s a red state. He doesn’t want to take additional points in a state where he’s only running against Trump. But we’re on the ballot in Wyoming, and since we’re on the ballot in Wyoming I think it’s safe—more than safe, I think it’s evident—that we are not here to run as a spoiler for the benefit of Donald Trump.
In running for president, you’ve opened yourself up to be scrutinized from every angle going back to the beginning of your career. I wanted to ask you about your time at the Digital Entertainment Network. Can you tell me a little bit about how you started there? You became a vice president as a teenager. What were your qualifications and what was your job exactly?
Well, I was the co-founder. A lot of it was my idea. I had an idea that people would use the internet to watch videos, and we create content for the internet. The idea was basically YouTube and Hulu and Netflix. Anyone that was around in the ‘90s and has been around digital media since then, they all credit us as the creators of basically those ideas. I was just getting a message from the creator of The Vandals, the punk rock band, right before you called. He’s like, “Brock, looks like we’re going to get the Guinness Book of World Records for having created the first streaming television show.”
We did a lot of that stuff. We had 30 television shows. We had the top most prestigious institutions in the world as investors. The biggest names. High-net-worth investors like Terry Semel, who’s chairman and CEO of Warner Brothers, and became the CEO of Yahoo. I did all sorts of things. I helped sell $150,000 worth of advertising contracts to the CEOs of Pepsi and everything else. I was the face of the company, meeting all the major banks and everything else, selling the vision of what the future was.
You moved in with Marc Collins-Rector and Chad Shackley at a mansion in Encino. Was that the headquarters of the business?
All start-ups, they normally start out in your home. Because it’s just you. The company was first started out of Marc’s house, and it was probably there for the first two or three months, before the company got an office. That’s, like, how it is for all start-ups.
were later a co-defendant in the L.A. County case filed against Marc Collins-Rector for plying minors with alcohol and drugs, in order to facilitate sexual abuse. You were dropped from the case, but you settled with one of the men for $21,600. Can you explain that?
Okay, well, first of all, that’s not accurate. Two of the plaintiffs in that case asked me if I would be a plaintiff. Because I refused to be a part of the lawsuit, they chose to include me to discredit me, to make their case stronger. They also went and offered 50 percent of what they got to the house management—they went around and offered money to anyone to participate in this. They needed people to corroborate their story. Eventually, because I refused to participate in the lawsuit, they named me. Subsequently, all three of the plaintiffs apologized to me, in front of audiences, in front of many people, saying Brock never did anything. They dismissed their cases.
Remember, this is a civil thing. I’ve never been charged with a crime in my life. And the last plaintiff to have his case dismissed, he contacted his lawyer and said, “Dismiss this case against Brock. Brock never did anything. I just apologized. Dismiss his case.” And the lawyer said, “No. I won’t dismiss this case, I have all these out-of-pocket expenses, I refuse to file the paperwork unless you give me my out-of-pocket expenses.” And so the lawyer, I guess, had $21,000 in bills. So I paid his lawyer $21,000—not him, it was not a settlement. That was a payment to his lawyer for his out-of-pocket expenses. Out-of-pocket expenses so that he would file the paperwork to dismiss the case.
You’ve said the cases were unfounded, and the plaintiffs eventually apologized. But your boss, Marc Collins-Rector later pleaded guilty to eight charges of child enticement and registered as a sex offender. Were you aware of his behavior? How do you square the fact that later allegations proved to be true, but these ones were not?
Well, remember: I was 16 and 17 years old at the time? So, no. I don’t think Marc is the man they made him out to be. But Marc is not a person I would associate with today, and someone I haven’t associated with in a very long time. I was 16 and 17. I chose the wrong business partner. You live and you learn.
You’ve pointed out that you were underage when most of these allegations were said to take place. Did you ever feel like you were coerced or in over your head while working at DEN?
I mean, I was working 18 hours a day, doing things I’d never done before. It was business school. But I definitely learned a lot in building that company. We raised $88 million. We filed our [form] S-1 to go public. We were the hottest start-up in Los Angeles.
In 2000, you left the country with Marc Collins-Rector. Why did you leave? How did you spend those two years abroad?
I moved to Spain in 1999 for personal reasons. I spent those two years in Europe working on developing my businesses.
Interpol found you in 2002. The house where you were staying reportedly contained guns, machetes, and child pornography. Whose guns and child porn were those? Were you aware they were in the house, and how did those get there?
My lawyers have addressed this in 32 pages of documentation showing a complete absence of wrongdoing. Please refer to my webpage for more information.
[Ed. Note: The webpage does not mention guns, machetes, or child pornography. It does state:“It is true that when the local police arrested Collins-Rector in Spain in 2002 on an international warrant, Mr. Pierce was also taken into custody, but so was everyone at Collins-Rector’s house in Spain; and it is equally clear that Brock was promptly released, and no charges of any kind were ever filed against Brock concerning this matter.”]
What do you make of the allegations against Bryan Singer? [Ed. Note: Bryan Singer, a close friend of Collins-Rector, invested at least $50,000 in DEN. In an Atlantic article outlining Singer’s history of alleged sexual assault and statutory rape, one source claimed that at age 15, Collins-Rector abused him and introduced him to Singer, who then assaulted him in the DEN headquarters.]
I am aware of them and I support of all victims of sexual assault. I will let America’s justice system decide on Singer’s outcome.
In 2011, you spoke at the Mindshift conference supported by Jeffrey Epstein. At that point, he had already been convicted of soliciting prostitution from a minor. Why did you agree to speak?
I had never heard of Jeffrey Epstein. His name was not on the website. I was asked to speak at a conference alongside Nobel Prize winners. It was not a cryptocurrency conference, it was filled with Nobel Prize winners. I was asked to speak alongside Nobel Prize winners on the future of money. I speak at conferences historically, two to three times a week. I was like, “Nobel Prize winners? Sounds great. I’ll happily talk about the future of money with them.” I had no idea who Jeffrey Epstein was. His name was not listed anywhere on the website. Had I known what I know now? I clearly would have never spoken there. But I spoke at a conference that he cosponsored.
What’s your connection to the Clinton Global Initiative? Did you hear about it through Jeffrey Epstein?
I joined the Clinton Global Initiative as a philanthropist in 2006 and was a member for one year. My involvement with the Initiative had no connection to Jeffrey Epstein whatsoever.
You’ve launched your campaign in Minnesota, where George Floyd was killed by a police officer. How do you feel about the civil uprising against police brutality?
I’m from Minnesota. Born and raised. We just had a press conference there, announcing that we’re on the ballot. Former U.S. Senator Dean Barkley was there. So that tells you, when former U.S. Senators are endorsing the candidate, right?
[Ed. note: Barkley was never elected to the United States Senate. In November of 2002, he was appointed by then Minnesota Governor Jesse Venture to fill the seat after Sen. Paul Wellstone died in a plane crash. Barkley’s term ended on Jan. 3, 2003—two months later.]
Yes, George Floyd was murdered in Minneapolis. My vice-presidential running mate Karla Ballard and I, on our last trip to Minnesota together, went to visit the George Floyd Memorial. I believe in law and order. I believe that law and order is foundational to any functioning society. But there is no doubt in my mind that we need reform. These types of events—this is not an isolated incident. This has happened many times before. It’s time for change. We have a lot of detail around policy on this issue that we will be publishing next week. Not just high-level what we think, not just a summary, but detailed policy.
You said that you support “law and order.” What does that mean?
“Law and order” means creating a fair and just legal system where our number one priority is protecting the inalienable rights of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” for all people. This means reforming how our police intervene in emergency situations, abolishing private prisons that incentivize mass incarceration, and creating new educational and economic opportunities for our most vulnerable communities. I am dedicated to preventing crime by eliminating the socioeconomic conditions that encourage it.
I support accountability and transparency in government and law enforcement. Some of the key policies I support are requiring body-cams on all law enforcement officers who engage with the public, curtailing the 1033 program that provides local law enforcement agencies with access to military equipment, and abolishing private prisons. Rather than simply defund the police, my administration will take a holistic approach to heal and unite America by ending mass incarceration, police brutality, and racial injustice.
Did you attend any Black Lives Matter protests?
I support all movements aimed at ending racial injustice and inequality. I​ have not attended any Black Lives Matter protests.​ My running-mate, Karla Ballard, attended the March on Washington in support of racial justice and equality.
Your platform doesn’t mention the words “climate change.” Is there a reason for that?
I’m not sure what you mean. Our policy platform specifically references human-caused climate change and we have a plan to restabilize the climate, address environmental degradation, and ensure environmental sustainability.
[Ed. Note: As of writing the Pierce campaign’s policy platform does not specifically reference human-caused climate change.]
You’ve recently brought on Akon as a campaign surrogate. How did that happen? Tell me about that.
Akon and I have been friends for quite some time. I was one of the guys that taught him about Bitcoin. I helped make some videogames for him, I think in 2012. We were talking about Bitcoin, teaching him the ropes, back in 2013. And in 2014, we were both speaking at the Milken Global Conference, and I encouraged him to talk about how Bitcoin, Africa, changed the world. He became the biggest celebrity in the world, talking about Bitcoin at the time. I’m an adviser to his Akoin project, very interested in the work that he’s doing to build a city in Africa.
I think we need a government that’s of, for, and by the people. Akon has huge political aspirations. He obviously was a hugely successful artist. But he also discovered artists like Lady Gaga. So not only is he, himself, a great artist, but he’s also a great identifier and builder of other artists. And he’s been a great businessman, philanthropist. He’s pushing the limits of what can be done. We’re like-minded individuals in that regard. I think he’ll be running for political office one day, because he sees what I see: that we need real change, and we need a government that is of, for, and by the people.
You mentioned that you’re an adviser on Akoin. Do you have any financial investments in Akoin or Akon City?
I don’t believe so. I’d have to check. I have so much stuff. But I don’t believe that I have any economic interests in his stuff. I’d have to verify that. We’ll get back to you. I don’t believe that I have any economic interests. My interest is in helping him. He’s a visionary with big ideas that wants to help things in the world. If I can be of assistance in helping him make the world a better place, I’m all for it. I’m not motivated by money. I’m not running for office because I’m motivated by power. I’m running for office because I’m deeply, deeply concerned about our collective future.
You’ve said you’re running on a pro-technology platform. One week into your campaign last month, a New York appeals court approved the state Attorney General’s attempt to investigate the stablecoin Tether for potentially fraudulent activity. Do you think this will impact your ability to sell people on your tech entrepreneurship?
No, I think my role in Tether is as awesome as it gets. It was my idea. I put it together. But I’ve had no involvement in the company since 2015. I gave all of my equity to the other shareholders. I’ve had zero involvement in the company for almost six years. It was just my idea. I put the initial team together. But I think Tether is one of the most important innovations in the world, certainly. The idea is, I digitized the U.S. dollar. I used technology to digitize currency—existing currency. The U.S. dollar in particular. It’s doing $10 trillion a year. Ten trillion dollars a year of transactional volume. It’s probably the most important innovation in currency since the advent of fiat money. The people that took on the business and ran the business in years to come, they’ve done things I’m not proud of. I’m not sure they’ve done anything criminal. But they certainly did things differently than I would do. But it’s like, you have kids, they turn 18, they go out into the world, and sometimes you’re proud of the things they do, and sometimes you shake your head and go, “Ugh, why did you do that?” I have zero concerns as it relates to me personally. I wish they made better decisions.
What do you think the investigation will find?
I have no idea. The problem that was raised is that there was a $5 million loan between two entities and whether or not they had the right to do that, did they disclose it correctly. There’s been no accusations of, like, embezzlement or anything that bad.
[Ed. Note: The Attorney General’s press release on the investigation reads: “Our investigation has determined that the operators of the ‘Bitfinex’ trading platform, who also control the ‘tether’ virtual currency, have engaged in a cover-up to hide the apparent loss of $850 million dollars of co-mingled client and corporate funds.”]
But there’s been some disclosure things, that is the issue. No one is making any outrageous claims that these are people that have done a bunch of bad—well, on the internet, the media has said that the people behind the business may have been manipulating the price of Bitcoin, but I don’t think that has anything to do with the New York investigation. Again, I’m so not involved, and so not at risk, that I’m not even up to speed on the details.
[Ed note: A representative of the New York State Attorney General told Forbes that he “cannot confirm or deny that the investigation” includes Pierce.]
We’ve recently witnessed the rise of QAnon, the conspiracy theory that Hollywood is an evil cabal of Satanic pedophiles and Trump is the person waging war on them. You mentioned human trafficking, which has become a cause for them. What are your thoughts on that?
I’ve watched some of the content. I think it’s an interesting phenomenon. I’m an internet person, so Anonymous is obviously an organization that has been doing interesting stuff. It’s interesting. I don’t have a big—conspiracy theory stuff is—I guess I have a question for you: What do you think of all of it, since you’re the expert?
You know, I think it’s not true, but I’m not running for president. I do wonder what this politician [Georgia congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene], who’s just won her primary, is going to do on day one, once she finds out there’s no satanic cabal room.
Wait, someone was running for office and won on a QAnon platform, saying that Hollywood did—say what? You’re the expert here.
She won a primary. But I want to push on if we only have a few minutes. In 2006, your gaming company IGE brought on Steve Bannon as an investor. Goldman later bought out most of your stock. Bannon eventually replaced you as CEO of Affinity. You’ve described him as your “right-hand man for, like, seven years.” How well did you know Bannon during that time?
Yes, so this is in my mid-twenties. He wasn’t an investor. He worked for me. He was my banker. He worked for me for three years as my yield guide. And then he was my CEO running the company for another four years. So I haven’t worked with Steve for a decade or so. We worked in videogame stuff and banking. He was at Goldman Sachs. He was not in the political area at the time. But he was a pretty successful banker. He set up Goldman Sachs Los Angeles. So for me, I’d say he did a pretty good job.
During your business relationship, Steve Bannon founded Breitbart News, which has pretty consistently published racist material. How do you feel about Breitbart?
I had no involvement with Breitbart News. As for how I feel about such material, I’m not pleased by any form of hate-mongering. I strongly support the equality of all Americans.
Did you have qualms about Bannon’s role in the 2016 election?
Bannon’s role in the Trump campaign got me to pay closer attention to what he was doing but that’s about it. Whenever you find out that one of your former employees has taken on a role like that, you pay attention.
Bannon served on the board of Cambridge Analytica. A staffer on your campaign, Brittany Kaiser, also served as a business director for them. What are your thoughts on their use of illicitly-obtained Facebook data for campaign promotional material?
Yes, so this will be the last question I can answer because I’ve got to be off for this 5:00 pm. But Brittany Kaiser is a friend of mine. She was the whistleblower of Cambridge Analytica. She came to me and said, “What do I do?” And I said, “Tell the truth. The truth will set you free.”
[Ed. Note: Investigations in Cambridge Analytica took place as early as Nov. 2017, when a U.K. reporter at Channel 4 News recorded their CEO boasting about using “beautiful Ukranian girls” and offers of bribes to discredit political officials. The first whistleblower was Christopher Wylie, who disclosed a cache of documents to The Guardian, published on Mar. 17, 2018. Kaiser’s confession ran five days later, after the scandal made national news. Her association with Cambridge Analytica is not mentioned anywhere on Pierce’s campaign website.]
So I’m glad that people—I’m a supporter of whistleblowers, people that see injustice in the world and something not right happening, and who put themselves in harm’s way to stand up for what they believe in. So I stand up for Brittany Kaiser.
Who do you think [anonymous inventor of Bitcoin] Satoshi Nakamoto is?
We all are Satoshi Nakamoto.
You got married at Burning Man. Have you been attending virtual Burning Man?
I’m running a presidential campaign. So, while I was there in spirit, unfortunately my schedule did not permit me to attend.
OP note: please refer to the original article for reference links within text (as I've not added them here!)

More Wall Street Breakfast Podcasts » "Despite several issues of importance - national riots, Chinese relations, an ongoing pandemic - the stock market is primarily focused on a single thing: the restart of U.S. and global economic activities," said Jim Paulsen, chief investment strategist at the Leuthold Group. The sentiment led S&P 500 futures to tack on another 0.6% gain overnight as Dr. Anthony Fauci expressed renewed "optimism" about a coronavirus vaccine. On the economic calendar, the ADP Employment Report today will give a fresh read on the extent of the COVID-19 pandemic, while oil climbed 2% on anticipated output cuts at the upcoming OPEC+ meeting.
Come on and Zoom!
A surge in video conferencing usage saw revenue growth at Zoom (NASDAQ:ZM) jump 169% to $328.2M as the company reported top and bottom line beats for Q1. Zoom also doubled its revenue guidance for the year, pushing up shares as much as 4.5% in AH trading on Tuesday. In keeping with its previous practices, the firm didn't disclose active user numbers, though analysts at Bernstein estimate Zoom's mobile app had 173M monthly active users as of May 27, up from 14M on March 4.
Zuckerberg stands firm after walkout
Facing internal unrest over the company's gentle approach to moderating posts from President Trump, Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) CEO Mark Zuckerberg told employees he stood behind his decision, one he called "tough" but "pretty thorough." Policies will be reviewed to see if they need to change for the future. Facebook employees particularly took issue with a post by Trump that threatened violence, including the words "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." Similar posts on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) were flagged for violating policy.
Apple is tracking looted iPhones
Thieves who made off with iPhones from Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) retail locations in New York, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Washington and Philadelphia quickly learned that they were loaded with special security software. On-screen messages displayed: "This device has been disabled and is being tracked. Local authorities will be alerted." The social unrest sweeping across the nation comes just as Apple is in the process of opening more than 100 stores following an extended closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Digital taxes
The Trump administration is opening a "Section 301" investigation into taxes on digital commerce - proposed by a range of trading partners - that could affect revenues booked by tech giants like Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG, GOOGL) and Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN). The move could ultimately lead to punitive tariffs and heighten the chances of another global trade dispute. France already agreed to postpone its new digital tax until at least the end of 2020 after the U.S. threatened to impose tariffs of up to 100% on imports like French wine, cheese, handbags and porcelain.
Will negative rates be needed?
Many have doubted that the U.S. could go negative like Japan and parts of Europe, but St. Louis Fed economist Yi Wen says that's what it would take to achieve a V-shaped economic recovery. "I found that a combination of aggressive fiscal and monetary policies is necessary. Aggressive policy means that the U.S. will need to consider negative interest rates and aggressive government spending, such as spending on infrastructure." Wen cited historical examples like President Roosevelt's aggressive fiscal stimulus package during the 1930s and huge surge in government spending once World War II began.
Britain news roundup
The Shanghai-London Connect program, years in the making, has so far produced only one listing - Huatai Securities (OTCPK:HUATF) - which raised $1.5B last June. China's market regulator has now approved a fresh listing for China Pacific Insurance (OTCPK:CHPXY), signaling a revival of the program. While the ties could bring the nations closer, other news overnight may go in the other direction. Boris Johnson pledged to let into the country nearly 3M Hong Kong citizens - who are British overseas passport holders - due to China's new national security law, and place them on a possible path to U.K. citizenship.
Drug shortages
One of the most widely prescribed antidepressant medications in the U.S. has fallen into short supply, according to a new list from the FDA. Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) said some versions of its name-brand Zoloft, such as 100 milligram tablets in 100-count bottles, were scarce because of higher demand during COVID-19, while generics faced shortages of certain ingredients. Zoloft prescriptions climbed 12% Y/Y to 4.9M in March, the most ever in the U.S., according to data compiled by Bloomberg, but receded to 4.5M in April.
M&A activity
French luxury goods group LVMH’s (OTCPK:LVMHF) $16.2B takeover of Tiffany & Co (NYSE:TIF) is looking less certain, according to Women's Wear Daily. It's the latest big merger said to be on the rocks amid a deteriorating situation in the U.S. market brought on by a COVID-19 pandemic and severe social unrest. Further challenges include spending pattern shifts, the collapse of international tourism and trade tensions between Washington and Beijing.
'Biggest Sale in the Sky'
After postponing its annual Prime Day event due to COVID-19, Amazon (AMZN) is reportedly setting up a "summer sale" for June to boost sellers hurt by the outbreak and swimming in inventory. The company told brands it would launch a fashion sale June 22, to run anywhere from 7-10 days, and that participation in the event was "invitation only." It's building landing pages with a working title "Biggest Sale in the Sky," and has asked brands to meet an end-of-Wednesday deadline to submit deals with a discount of at least 30%.

Meet a new hero of Bitcoin Cash - Roberto Garcia (Bitcoin Cash House)

Meet a new hero of Bitcoin Cash - Roberto Garcia (Bitcoin Cash House)
We at Bitcoin.com and Sideshift.ai did the easy part and got the sponsorship money.
Roberto Garcia did all the hard stuff. It's his project. He scoured the city to find a place that would
  1. Agree to a 3-month trial lease
  2. Let a company work with bitcoin
2 months later and it’s live. Roberto went to just about every mall; shopping center.
Rejections, delays, stipulations. So what is Bitcoin Cash house?
A crypto education hub in the city of Barquisimeto, Venezuela. A mall kiosk where local cryptocurrency advocates teach Venezuelans about the power of cryptocurrency:
  • How to send money to friends and family anywhere in the world instantly, with negligible fees.
  • The advantages that a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin Cash has over traditional fiat currencies like the Venezuelan Bolivar and the US Dollar.
  • Best practices of storing and spending cryptocurrency.
  • How to protect assets and against volatility with SLP tokens including the USDH stablecoin.
  • Jobs - how to find work and get paid in cryptocurrency.
  • Developers - ways for developers and future developers to get involved with Bitcoin Cash.

Now it's an experiment. A few months rent and going to see what happens. Make no mistake about it, as we have seen at the CryptoSpace in Los Angeles.
Having a physical location is POWERFUL. We the cryptocommunity, talk “trustless”. But the rest of the world has to earn that trust. In person conversations are powerful.
Location: Torre Bell Centro Comercial y de Negocios
Avenida los Leónes, esquina terepaima, piso 6.
Barquisimeto, Venezuela
Hours: 2-6PM Monday through Saturday

In the same location are a pizzeria, bank, and liquor store. We will teach them to start accepting Bitcoin Cash as well.
Can we crowd fund campaigns together as a community? Any thoughts or ideas, please leave them below.
So far we have gotten the launch done with 1.3 BCH.

What Is KNOWLEDGE BROKER BLUEPRINT: HOW KBB 2.0 METHOD WORKS

KNOWLEDGE BROKER BLUEPRINT BY TONY ROBBINS AND DEAN GRAZIOSI

Knowledge Broker Blueprint is a new winning playbook formula and online business training program created by mastermind legends Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi and their proprietary MindMint software.
Knowledge Broker Blueprint is the newest 2020 version of Knowledge Business Blueprint which launched in April 2019 (which had over 200,000 people watching its release and over 16,000 people joined). The KBB 2.0 is set up to focus on three core components; course (education), software (tools) and coaching (mastermind).
Dean and Tony are looking to make a lightning strike twice following the success of KBB 1.0. Now with KBB 2.0, they claim to have come back bigger and better than ever to help people start winning at the game of life and business. A “Knowledge Broker” is defined as a person with skill, passion or expertise that shares it with others to create impact and earn profits. Tony and Dean both believe being a Knowledge Broker is the single best thing you can do as an entrepreneur as people are voting with their wallets and paying to learn from professional DOERS instead.
That is the central theme of the Knowledge Broker Blueprint Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi put together for the launch of KBB 2.0. While there is still more information coming out about the launch of KBB 2.0, here are all of the top-level details we can share about Knowledge Broker Blueprint to start:
Tony Robbins has teamed up with Dean Graziosi to launch a new online training program called Knowledge Broker Blueprint. “KBB” claims it will be one of the biggest online business training course launches in history. While more information is surfacing about the winning playbook found within KBB 2.0, our review of Knowledge Broker Blueprint is broken down into three major sections so you can get a complete overview of what it is, how it works, and what to expect.
To best understand Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi's Knowledge Broker Blueprint program, our research is in the following format that explores all aspects of KBB 2.0:
1) what is knowledge broker blueprint review 2) who is Tony Robbins 3) Knowledge Broker World Summit
Now, before we jump right into the Knowledge Broker Blueprint review, there is one small minor detail worth mentioning – and that is Tony Robbins fondness of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.
Back during the last bull market cycle for crypto assets, Tony Robbins did share a tweet that helped clear up the confusion around Bitcoin with his millions of followers and fans. Also, in addition to tweeting and writing blog posts about bitcoin to educate his audience, he also featured bitcoin in his #1 New York best-selling book, Money: Master the Game where he talked about proper asset allocation in a book where he interviewed the brightest minds and most brilliant financial innovators in the world.
While Knowledge Broker Blueprint isn't focused on bitcoin or cryptocurrencies, it is about business and the future of financial success. This is why Master The Crypto wanted to review Knowledge Broker Blueprint as a fantastic way to self-educate and learn from the right people as the best way to secure success today.
Now, let's dive into all of the research and provide meaningful insight and analysis to how Knowledge Broker Blueprint works, who Tony Robbins is and their Knowledge Broker World Summit event coming up in 2020.

WHAT IS THE KNOWLEDGE BROKER BLUEPRINT?

Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi have teamed up to launch the Knowledge Broker Blueprint. It’s a combination of a business development plan and a personal development plan.
The Knowledge Broker Blueprint is a live-cast that will take place on February 27. You can opt into the live-cast between February 19 and 26.
Some of the key features of the Knowledge Broker Blueprint include:
The idea behind Knowledge Broker Blueprint is that you can discover the strategies used by some of today’s most successful individuals. What are these people doing to be successful? Knowledge Broker Blueprint claims to teach you these lessons.
The 2020 version of Knowledge Broker Blueprint is officially called Knowledge Broker Blueprint 2.0. It’s the second version of this system.

HOW DOES KNOWLEDGE BROKER BLUEPRINT WORK?

Knowledge Broker Blueprint, also abbreviated to KBB, is an online course consisting of four modules.
The creators of KBB are calling it one of the biggest online course launches in history.
The initial live cast announcing the launch of Knowledge Broker Blueprint had over 250,000 viewers worldwide. That live cast was hosted by Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi.
In the words of the course’s creator, the course “teaches you how to extract your knowledge, skill, hobby or passion (or someone else’s)”, then identity the people willing to pay for that unique skill or knowledge.
What type of “thing” do you do more effectively than anyone else? What type of knowledge do you have that people may be willing to pay for?
While progressing through the Knowledge Broker Blueprint course, you will use the MindMint software. The software keeps track of your progress.
That’s why Knowledge Broker Blueprint is more than just an education program or software system: it’s a combination of both. Together, the education program and software promise to “allow anyone to start or scale a highly impactful and highly profitable mastermind, group, workshop or community.”
Some people might think, “I don’t even have any unique skills. I can barely use a computer.” That’s fine! As the creator of Knowledge Broker Blueprint explains:
“It doesn’t mater if you don’t have any tech skills or any previous business experience. Everything you need to know is provided in this training program by 3 of the greatest entrepreneurs of our generation.”

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN IN KNOWLEDGE BROKER BLUEPRINT?

Knowledge Broker Blueprint isn’t your typical training course. The entire purpose of the course is to teach you how to leverage your unique knowledge into personal profit.
As the name of the course suggests, Knowledge Broker Blueprint will give you the blueprint you need to broker your knowledge.
As a “knowledge broker”, you are selling your unique knowledge to the world. What type of information can you leverage today? What kind of unique knowledge or skills do you have that people are willing to pay for?
The ultimate goal is to teach you how to run your own mastermind group or mastermind event.
The Knowledge Broker Blueprint course gives you all of the tools you need to set up your mastermind group, the market that mastermind group to the world, and maximize profit from that group.
Keep in mind that you don’t need to know anything to run a mastermind group. Some people run profitable mastermind groups simply by inviting smarter people to the event. If you could get Oprah Winfrey, Elon Musk, and Bill Gates into one room, don’t you think people would buy a ticket? That’s an extreme example, but that’s the type of thinking behind Knowledge Broker Blueprint.

WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH KNOWLEDGE BROKER BLUEPRINT?

Knowledge Broker Blueprint is a completely online course. You get video tutorials, resources, exercises, downloadable worksheets, and access to a private Facebook group. Here’s what you get with Knowledge Broker Blueprint:
  1. Extract It
  2. Fill It
  3. Run It
  4. Knowledge Broker
Each training video ranges in length from 7 minutes to 30 minutes. However, there are some longer training videos that dive deep into topics like Facebook and YouTube advertisements.
The downloadable PDF worksheets, meanwhile, can be printed off before you start a lesson. Fill in the worksheets as you go along. Or, test your knowledge after (or both). It will help you retain the information from the lesson.
Each lesson is also followed by a quiz to verify that you retained the knowledge.
In other words, there’s a lot of content with Knowledge Broker Blueprint. The hours of video will teach you everything you need to know about creating your own mastermind program.
Tony and Dean have packaged years of experience in these videos. They’re distilling their combined 60+ years of industry experience into one concise training program. If you’re willing to put in the work, you can get a lot of priceless information from Knowledge Broker Blueprint.

WHAT IS MINDMINT SOFTWARE?

Knowledge Broker Blueprint 2.0 comes with a software called MintMint. The software walks you through the entire process of setting up an event, including the initial announcement of the event, marketing for the event, planning, execution, and more.
Essentially, MindMint has everything you need to ensure your mastermind event goes off smoothly – and profitably.
MindMint also organizes event information in one place. You can keep information about the trainers, speakers, attendees together, for example, along with the information about the schedule, key dates, and more.
MindMint doesn’t just help plan and organize the event: the software also helps you create a sales funnel for the event. You can get help with everything from your landing page to your final payment page.
In summary, here’s what’s included with the MindMint software:

Robbins is the eldest of three children, and his parents divorced when he was seven. His mother remarried multiple times, including to a former semi-professional baseball player named Jim Robbins, who legally adopted Tony when he was 12.
Tony Robbins was born Anthony J. Mahavoric, although he changed his name to Anthony Jay Robbins after being adopted by Jim Robbins. Although he once went under the name Anthony Robbins, he now mostly goes by Tony Robbins.
When Robbins was 17 years old, he left home and never returned. He later worked as a janitor, and he never attended college.

KNOWLEDGE BROKER WORLD SUMMIT

There are many different ways to learn a new skill, a new trade, or just about anything else. Although the conventional option is to read books, those who are looking for guidance from the expert themselves may want to attend a symposium. One particular program that has received some popularity in recent months is the Knowledge Broker World Summit.
According to the program, a knowledge broker is a person with skill, passion, or expertise who shares it with the world for impact and profit.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Knowledge Broker World Summit is an event that may be able to provide attendees with guidance concerning how to achieve your goals and desires. As the program platform explains it shares education and wisdom on how to achieve abundance, fulfillment, and success. In addition, it provides direction on how attendees can escape the 9-5 grind, how they can create a legacy, and how to discover the “new you.” Keep in mind that while it all sounds promising, it is important to be aware that these are guiding principles. What may work for one individual does not always work for all.

POSITIVE FEEDBACK

There is also feedback from various individuals on what they “have to say” about the Graziosi and Robbins. It is unknown whether the comments are directed at the program. Nonetheless, the comments on the website are from Serena Williams, Larry King, Richard Branson, and Marie Menounos. Further, the comments are quite positive as well.

Looking to make a big career shift into finance - what is it going to take? Insight appreciated!

Hi /financialcareers,
Summary: I'm looking to make a full on career switch into the field of finance, ideally in the equity derivatives trading space, portfolio management, or risk management/analysis. Willing to start in the back office and hustle for as long as it takes, but don't know how to get there/where to start.
Background: I have ~5 years of administative/executive assistant experience, mostly in the entertainment industry. Bachelors in business administration from a decent university, was interested in finance but opted to try the movie studio route since I'm located near the Los Angeles area. I ended up leaving my most recent place of employment (studio) due to some personal issues and it being a not-so-pleasant work environment. During that time I taught myself how to trade stocks & bitcoin derivatives. I did pretty well, and was able to create a profitable trading system which has been sustaining my livelihood for the past two years (leaving a resume gap). While trading, I remembered how much I enjoyed learning about finance (my Amazon/Audible order history seems to agree lol), and decided that when I go back into the workforce that is what I'd like to do.
Unfortunately, I don't have many connections in the finance industry, so I've hit a bit of a dead end as far as the best path to take going forward. The one connection I do have recommended trying to get any back office job at a small hedge fund/asset management firm/bank then work my way up from there, so I've been searching around to try and apply to any I find. Another path I was considering taking was picking up any administrative job (finance-related or not) to have some consistent cash flow for a year or so, and use my spare time to study for the CFA.
Any insight would be appreciated. I know the chances are slim and it's going to be a lot of work, but it's a path I want to pursue and I'm willing to put in the effort in order to make that happen.
Thanks so much for your time in advance!

Bitcoin investment plan

Bitcoin investment plan
Sebastian Rossi of Los Angeles, California was burnt out on stressing constantly where the following check would originate from. Life appeared to be just a progression of bills and agonizing over how to pay them. One late night while surfing the web, interest outwitted him and he began exploring Bitcoin and digital currency. His extended periods of time of research paid off and he had the option to find a strategy for bringing in cash that would transform him. He was at long last ready to make a significant measure of cash while having enough spare time to appreciate it.

I read Sebastian's blog a month ago and chose to highlight his story on our activity report. In our telephone talk with he disclosed to me his astonishing story. "I fundamentally make around $12,000 to $15,000 every month. It's far more cash than I at any point made previously, and I don't even truly need to do anything."

The vast majority know about Bitcoin, however a little realized certainty is that there are truly a large number of elective cryptographic forms of money out there. These elective digital forms of money are ordinarily called "altcoins", short for elective coins. Probably the most famous are Ethreum, Litecoin, and Dash. In spite of the fact that Bitcoin has delighted in a lot of media consideration over it's colossal cost increases, a large number of these lesser referred to digital currencies have had the same amount of if not all the more a cost increment over the most recent few years. Another perspective that all these digital currencies share is unpredictability, which to a normal financial specialist may appear to be an obstruction, However, to an informal investor it's a major in addition to. Exchanging Bitcoin and altcoins permits the dealer an astonishing chance to exploit ludicrous value changes that simply aren't found in the customary commercial center. Therefore informal investors are presently running to exchange digital forms of money.

One of the most well known and intriguing strategies individuals use to exchange cryptographic money is through mechanized exchanging programming. In contrast to the financial exchange, digital money can be exchanged 24 hours per day. So merchants can run exchanging programming from their home PCs and benefit in their rest. The wonder of running robotized programming to exchange digital currencies and create cash online isn't new. All things considered, as of late these projects have figured out how to get a ton of consideration since they have become undeniably progressively exact and productive.

Sebastian's prosperity with Bitcoin and digital money exchanging began when he found BinBotPro. A robotized exchanging programming that capacities using high recurrence exchanging. Which means, it makes rapid algorithmic exchanges that exploit the unpredictability present in the digital currency commercial center. The benefits per exchange may not be that much, yet when you run the program 24 hours every day these little exchanges can mean a lot of cash. Exchanging digital currencies has been a major break for Sebastian, who battled for a considerable length of time moving between different impasse jobs. "I lost my employment a year back and from that point forward have been not able to get a consistent paying line of work, yet with BinBotPro I had the option to make an easy revenue stream that put cash in my pocket day by day."

Weekly Update: $BOMB SWOT Analysis, HYDRO dApp store, Silent Notary Consilium, Job Opening at OST... – 20 Sep - 26 Sep'19

Weekly Update: $BOMB SWOT Analysis, HYDRO dApp store, Silent Notary Consilium, Job Opening at OST... – 20 Sep - 26 Sep'19
Hiya folks! Happy Diwali to everyone. Here’s your week at Parachute + partners (20 Sep - 26 Sep'19):

Tons of quizzes and contests this week at Parachute + TTR. Doc Vic hosted a trivia on medicine and another one on WW2 this week in TTR. A total of 50k $PAR given away. Victor hosted another trivia there too for 25k $PAR. Sweet! The Big Brother contest came to a close with the finale this week. The winner of Big Brother was Michie, who sadly no one picked. So all 21 participants won 5K $PAR each! Another 70k $PAR was given out to other winners. Plus, $202,500 PAR have been awarded in the various Big Brother contests earlier. Huge! Thank you Gian for doing all of this. And did you get a chance to partake in Tiproom’s Mememania? 50k $PAR in prizes – 25k for top 10 winners and another 25k for 100 memes. Next week’s update will feature some of the funniest memes from the contest. Richi hosted a Movie Trivia in Tiproom for a 25k $PAR prize pot for 10 questions. Woot!
Looking good Alexis!

Catch up on the latest at aXpire from the weekly update video compiled by Joakim. This week’s 20k $AXPR burn can be tracked here. CEO Gary Markham, who sits on the board of Hedge Fund Association, travelled to an HFA event to spread the word on the project. In the last update, we shared that 2gether was hosting a blockchain and tokenization based contest named Crypto Talent in partnership with IEB Spain for students and professionals. Read more about it here. News of the competition was shared on Cointelegraph as well. You can also listen in to Founder Salvador talk about the contest here and here. Check out the 2gether T-shirt that the team wore to the South Summit next week. Neat! CEO Ramon spoke at the Finnovista Pitch Day about FinTech innovation. Salvador’s interview along with a profile of 2gether was published in The Blockchain Land. The winner of the Birdchain Art Contest was announced this week. Congratulations! Plus, some news updates on the app were shared as well.
Birdchain Art Contest winner. Wicked!
Last week we shared that the $XIO ERC20:BEP2 bridge testnet trials have gone well. Here’s a sneak peek into how it looks. Once activated (condition to the acceptance of the Binance Dex listing application), the bridge will be open for roughly a month*. Dash also talked about 3 marketing mistakes that crypto startups make commonly – paying for PR (earned media > paid media), focus on follower count (organic reach > vanity metrics), airdrops (unless done strategically). If you had questions on how the XIO system will work and help startups scale, then fret not. Zachary wrote an article and video explaining it all. The community also voted this week to opt in for an SMS update option if there were ever one. The $BOMB community survey results are also out. This set the basis for a detailed SWOT analysis of the token. An excerpt from Benjamin’s 4% burn report was published on Coinbeat as well. In this week’s discussion series, Zachary reflects on market movements and the nature of the XIO incubator program.
\*[As of today, the switch to Binance Chain has been shelved. $XIO will stay on Ethereum. But there will still be a token swap. Details will be shared in a later update]
BOMB survey results show that the community is well distributed across the globe
Fantom’s Statheros stablecoin project will be partnering with a South African bank working on a mainnet launch. Initial details of the tie-up were released. The news was covered by CFN as well. CMO Michael travelled to a CFN event in London. Click here for pics. Technical Update #14 came out too. The big exclusive at Uptrennd this week was bagging an interview Andreas Antonopoulos.

In this week’s public vote, the community voted to get TomoChain a free review from Altcoin Buzz. Community member Jackson Jerry took the initiative to deliver a presentation on the platform to thousands of students during a University Blockchain Awareness tour.

The latest developer update summarises all work done in the past week on the dev front. Silent Notary announced the launch of a Consilium system which will be using its own blockchain network (IDL) for legal actions on the platform.

Also, the much awaited review of the project by the Uptrennd team was published in two parts (Part I, Part II). Blockfolio and Delta accepted $AMGO for listing on their platforms. Woohoo!

Meet a new hero of crypto in Venezuela - Roberto Garcia (Bitcoin Cash House)

Meet a new hero of crypto in Venezuela - Roberto Garcia (Bitcoin Cash House)
Bitcoin.com and Sideshift.ai did the easy part and got the sponsorship money.
Roberto Garcia did all the hard stuff. It's his project. He scoured the city to find a place that would
  1. Agree to a 3-month trial lease
  2. Let a company work with bitcoin
2 months later and it’s live. Roberto went to just about every mall; shopping center.
Rejections, delays, stipulations. So what is Bitcoin Cash house?
A crypto education hub in the city of Barquisimeto, Venezuela. A mall kiosk where local cryptocurrency advocates teach Venezuelans about the power of cryptocurrency:
  • How to send money to friends and family anywhere in the world instantly, with negligible fees.
  • The advantages that a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin Cash has over traditional fiat currencies like the Venezuelan Bolivar and the US Dollar.
  • Best practices of storing and spending cryptocurrency.
  • How to protect assets and against volatility with SLP tokens including the USDH stablecoin.
  • Jobs - how to find work and get paid in cryptocurrency.
  • Developers - ways for developers and future developers to get involved with Bitcoin Cash.

Now it's an experiment. A few months rent and going to see what happens. Make no mistake about it, as we have seen at the CryptoSpace in Los Angeles.
Having a physical location is POWERFUL. We the cryptocommunity, talk “trustless”. But the rest of the world has to earn that trust. In person conversations are powerful.
Location: Torre Bell Centro Comercial y de Negocios
Avenida los Leónes, esquina terepaima, piso 6.
Barquisimeto, Venezuela
Hours: 2-6PM Monday through Saturday

https://preview.redd.it/3el083lwtax31.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=bbdde6aaaf6ca53a60191d4ee15d40860b41c851
In the same location are a pizzeria, bank, and liquor store. We will teach them to start accepting Bitcoin Cash as well.
Can we crowd fund campaigns together as a community? Any thoughts or ideas, please leave them below.
So far we have gotten the launch done with 1.3 BCH.
You can always reach out on the contact form at venezuela.bitcoin.com. Thank you!

Reading This Make Me Cry, I Knew Bitcoin In 2009 But Didn't Buy It, And This Boy Bought Some Bitcoin And Now Has $4.5mil

Reading This Make Me Cry, I Knew Bitcoin In 2009 But Didn't Buy It, And This Boy Bought Some Bitcoin And Now Has $4.5mil
I was a university student at that time, I was trying to mine some Bitcoin but it was very complicated at that time, and I was not very good in Eng at that age so I didn't make it, but this boy not. I gotta say I'm kind of jealous of him, but he actually put a lot of work so he deserves it.
"While fleeing from the police, Finman saw a man in a shirt with a Bitcoin logo and he asked him What is Bitcoin. That prompted Finman to do his own research on cryptocurrencies and bought 100 BTC" => Teenager,s be curious and you can be rich as this kid!
Buying $ 1,000 Bitcoin at age 12, now the 20-year-old has a net worth of $ 4.5 million
https://preview.redd.it/tu5h6fr6b7j31.jpg?width=600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=20200cc670edb899c68dd6c51430c7377046e3ef
Finman grew up in Post Falls, a small town outside Coeur Keyboardlene, Idaho, USA. His parents met when he was a PhD student at Stanford University and Erik was the youngest of their three sons.
Finman first learned about Bitcoin from a "hippie" (a term used to refer to the eccentric young people against the conventions of society) in a demonstration and he thought it sounded promising.
In an interview with Cheddar, Finman shared the original story of how he discovered Bitcoin. Specifically, Finman's brother took him to a demonstration after the 2008 financial crisis. While fleeing from the police, Finman saw a man in a shirt with a Bitcoin logo and he asked him What is Bitcoin.
"I thought it would end Wall Street, all corruption and bad things," Finman recalls the sentence of the stranger.

https://preview.redd.it/iqucg8i7b7j31.jpg?width=640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=45956b1ae2e74d66cd9a49258cfde76f0164ec8f
That prompted Finman to do his own research on cryptocurrencies, and he decided, along with his brother, to do something important. Finman used $ 1,000, the money his grandmother intended to save for later studies, to buy about 100 Bitcoin. At that time, each of these cryptocurrencies was worth only about 10 to 12 USD.
"Every day after that, I spend time trading to earn more," Finman said. "For three years, I simply made Bitcoin transactions and went to school."

https://preview.redd.it/4twndla8b7j31.jpg?width=640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b484d6335f20e0f8e04ed1b88e7daa3bf4d3a5fa
At the age of 15, Finman sold Bitcoin worth more than $ 100,000 to raise money to start an education startup and drop out of high school.
Part of the reason Finman sold Bitcoin was to participate in a $ 8,500 lottery to meet his idol, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. As a result, Finman won and met Ohanian.

https://preview.redd.it/vtlvs2z8b7j31.jpg?width=640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=5e8a14b2c89e1b314a9a6772d5ebfb5aacd48259
Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, who inspired Finman.
Finman was inspired by his own negative experiences with the school to create his educational startup, called Botangle. Sharing this, Finman said he hates school. He said a teacher told him to quit school and get a job at McDonald's.

https://preview.redd.it/jqflxjm9b7j31.jpg?width=630&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=64cbca8045fdc21420e3c3752d0e54e0bab5c7b4
In June 2016, Finman posted feedback on Instagram with an email screenshot sent to his former mentor with the subject line "Look at me now!".
The caption of the photo read: "I have to send this email to the high school teacher who told me to drop out and go to work at McDonald's."
And so Finman created Botangle – a company that pairs students with online teachers – and he dropped out to work on it himself.

https://preview.redd.it/odk2hlaab7j31.jpg?width=631&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=5ae93a70c44bd868dfd8f4e9116bbeae6d3f11e3
And Finman raised the bet in a bet with his parents: If he became a millionaire at the age of 18, he wouldn't have to go to college.

https://preview.redd.it/gq0d4t0bb7j31.jpg?width=628&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9dd5d898e88dc057c1fdaa2b63a9e3f33fec81c8
After applying for an internship at a startup selling Sprayable Energy, Finman moved to Silicon Valley. Sprayable Energy is a product, described by him as "Red Bull to your skin". It's like a "topical caffeine spray," and the manufacturer recommends that users spray it on their necks to boost their energy slowly.

https://preview.redd.it/j4owd8lbb7j31.jpg?width=627&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d2c667da737000ff9763ebe18d3c7b71d344d0ae
About two years after starting Botangle, Finman sold his company for 300 Bitcoin at age 17. However, in a recent share, the young man said he bought the brand because "liked the name so much".

https://preview.redd.it/0jwpag8cb7j31.jpg?width=629&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c58a60e00fb64a132743191edd1c76805d489649
In June 2017, at the age of 18, Finman became a millionaire when the value of Bitcoin surpassed $ 2,700. It means he won the bet with his parents.
Finman's first car was an Audi R8, now he keeps it in a garage in Los Angeles. This 2020 R8 Coupe costs $ 170,000.

https://preview.redd.it/mal83stcb7j31.jpg?width=630&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=29a208c6b0360d5bfee8c9c5244dc81bee76dbf5
However, the young man also began to cultivate what he called a quirky personality on social networking Instagram – "half … my own satire" – to draw attention to upcoming projects. mine.
And his Twitter profile is "The appeal of new money".

https://preview.redd.it/dego6gndb7j31.jpg?width=632&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=279b601ff10fd7a9a77aac02d536491fe3d0296f
"I turned Instagram into a crazy tool, to look like an eccentric young Bitcoin millionaire. You know, kind of a pattern fit," Finman said.
In an interview titled "Bitcoin Millionaires Are Preparing to Go," Finman said: "I woke up from a blanket made of hundreds of dollars. I stood up, they fell off my face and then I put on my Yeezys shoes as soon as I got out of bed, then brushed my teeth with a high-class brush. It was just a normal day in life.

https://preview.redd.it/77jynxveb7j31.jpg?width=627&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=cb31e00b5ed7252661b6ba2097db2a4b81d12691
In May 2018, Finman led a team of engineers to create an Octopus Octopus Dr. suit in real life.
In December 2018, Finman led Project da Vinci, in which a group of teenagers will launch satellites into space.

https://preview.redd.it/q4y7oyhfb7j31.jpg?width=630&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9e70f1f5852a40e1b0c38404c8844e632b65ddcf
In May 2019 Finman launched CoinBits, a Bitcoin investment tool.
In August 2019, the Metal Pay project launched with Finman as an investor and he called it "Facebook's Libra killer." Yahoo Finance called Metal Pay a "peer-to-peer payment startup".
"If necessary, I am ready to put all of my bitcoins here," Finman said in his project announcement video. "I am willing to bet everything".
"I don't usually look like an investor guy, but I just want to be part of the team and then just do something together, push it forward," Finman said.

https://preview.redd.it/z78avdagb7j31.jpg?width=629&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6c35d2f88bdda45ed525b400158c0edcfbe81fe7
Finman currently holds 446 Bitcoin, about $ 4.5 million, at the current exchange rate of over $ 10,000.
This guy also has an apartment in San Francisco and New York City, and he also spends considerable time in Los Angeles. Finman will turn 21 in October.

https://preview.redd.it/pfi8tywgb7j31.jpg?width=626&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c5235e054bc15f5bbc462500b2eab42e105d394b
Share on his next project, Finman said that he is preparing to do something in the field of education and will publish it soon to everyone."

Successful people aren't Demi-Gods with insane willpower and incredible productivity skills. They are normal people who understood the importance of the small seemingly insignificant daily disciplines. They understood how these disciplines leveraged with time could make them unstoppable

The Slight Edge

So what separates those who become successful in life with those who achieve nothing. The answer is in the simple daily decisions we make. Leveraged over time. The answer is the Slight Edge, a concept popularised by Jeff Olson, and his book called ‘The Slight Edge’, (must read btw)

Animated Video Post

Before we die, we would have made millions of decisions throughout our lives. Many of these decisions being seemingly insignificant during the moment; Deciding to go for a jog on a rainy day or sitting at home and watching TV, Reading a self-improvement book or PK’ing some noobs in the wildly.
We often believe in the Quantum Leap fallacy, the idea that success happens after huge bursts of willpower or some sort of divine intervention. You have seen it before, the friend who joins the gym for a month and expects to look like Dwayne Johnson. How about your other friend who invested in bitcoin and now patiently waits for his billions?
It’s easy to see why this happens, we live in an instant gratification society. We assume that results should come quickly in everything we do. If we want it, we get it. If you want some food you can hop on Uber Eats and order the burger, if you want entertainment you can hop on YouTube and watch an endless amount of prank channels, if you want a Vinyl wall decal of half an Asian businessmen Amazon can deliver that to you within 3 days. No really, you can buy that shit… It’s got pretty good reviews too. The moral of the story is that our brains have been programmed to expect results fast, it’s even in our movies. You watch Rocky and you can see some bum become a boxing champion within the span of 2 hours.

The Truth About Success Isn't Sexy

Well, the truth about achieving things in life is not so sexy, it’s nothing like the Rocky montages. This isn’t a movie. Success stems from the mundane, it stems from the boring choices that you make daily that don’t appear to matter much.
Having one cigarette at a party doesn’t really matter much, it most likely won’t do anything to your body. How about having that one cigarette a few times a week multiplied by a couple of years. Brah, now your lungs are exploding inside your fucking chest like Walter White.
How about making the choice to exercise three times a week, every week? You do it for one week and not much changes. You leverage those 3 workouts per week over 5 years and you look better than 95% of the population you might even add a couple of years to your life.
That’s the Slight Edge, every single decision you make regardless of how small it might seem in the moment when leveraged over time creates your life. You are always moving slightly up and getting better with time or you are moving down and degenerating.
An easy way to illustrate this is by understanding the 1-degree mistake. In aviation, precision is a must and if a plane flies 1 degree off course it will miss its target by 92 feet for every mile it flies. If a plane flies from New York City to Los Angeles and is off track by 1 degree, that plane is going to end up being 50 miles off course. You need to respect your daily decisions as seriously as a pilot respects his bearings.

Pizza girl

I remember ordering pizza the other day, when I opened the door to grab it I was shocked at what I saw. The girl delivering the pizza was a girl I went to high school with, the last time I had seen her was 5 years prior, back when she had an athletic body, fast forward to now and she was severely overweight. I wondered how she let herself go like that?
Then it hit me! Right before high School finished she told me about scoring a job at Pizza Hut. Clearly, she didn’t get obese overnight, but you multiply all those nights in which she took some left-over pizzas home and leverage those nights with time and you get an extra 60-100 pounds to her frame.
So, why does this happen?
Look, no one wants to get fat or get lung cancer, but human beings are notoriously myopic. We have a hard time grasping abstract concepts such as the effects that small actions have when leveraged over time. It is much easier to grasp the effects of big actions, it’s easy to understand how doing drugs could ruin your life, but it’s hard to comprehend how the Pepsi you drink every day might have the same effect on your health in the long run. It’s easy to understand how gambling at a casino can affect your finances, but it’s harder to understand the long-term effects of your credit card debt or student loans. Our brains always default to the easy concepts that they can understand, while omitting things that are slightly complex. Now consider this, the things that will improve our lives are easy to do:
• Meditating for 15 minutes a day is easy
• Reading a non-fiction book for 20 minutes a day is easy
• Exercising for 30 -40 minutes a day is easy
• Getting 0.1% better at your craft a day is easy
• Saving a little bit of money/ putting some in investments is easy
However, all these things are just as easy not to do. Your biology is against you. Your body wants to preserve energy for survival. Your body doesn’t know that you are no longer in the stone age, it doesn’t know that you have goals and aspirations. It doesn’t give a flying fuck about your higher ideals, so your default mechanism is to resort to the easiest option- not doing anything, staying in bed and watching videos about ‘$17 fried chicken vs $ 500 fried chicken’, (is anyone else addicted to this Buzz feed ‘worth it’ series?)

Areas To Focus One

So, what can we do to have the Slight Edge work in our favour? The first thing we can do is to bring more awareness into what we expose ourselves to in our lives. I have four main areas that everyone should focus on:
• Stimuli
• Associations
• Food
• Mission

Stimuli:

You should take some time to consider what type of stimuli you are allowing to seep into your life. I am talking about: The shows you watch, the music you listen to, the websites you visit, the books you read, and anything media based. Consider everything, are these things elevating you? Making you smarter, more aware? Or are you becoming numb, disengaged to life because of these things?

Associations:

The people you hang around with, how do they influence you? Do they make you step up and become the best version of yourself, or do they disempower you? Are they achieving things in their lives and making things happen or are they 1 degree off course and bringing you down for the ride? Sometimes the people we hang out with are killing us slowly, perhaps it’s time you re-evaluate your circle of friends.

Food:

Yes, yes I know your KFC double down burger is delicious but is eating a burger with two pieces of deep-fried chicken for buns every day really serving you? When was the last time you got your blood-work checked mate! Your cholesterol must be higher than Shaggy from Scooby Doo. You guys do know he was high throughout the whole show right? Pay attention to the things you put into your body daily, if you keep eating and drinking the way you do what would you look like over the next 5, 10, 20 years? Some of you might not even last that long with the shit you are eating.

Mission:

Do you have a mission in your life? Do you want to be an entrepreneur? A doctor? The best league of legends player in Oceania? Consider your daily disciplines, are you doing the small tasks daily that are needed to realize your mission? Will your vision be realized or are you waiting for the quantum leap to happen like in the movies?
The slight edge is real, it’s based on mathematics, it’s so simple and yet we ignore it. It’s time you start paying attention to your daily disciplines. It’s not exciting, but the small things are what build up to shape our destinies. When you look at any success story, don’t be so quick to play the luck card. Investigate and see if the Slight Edge was at play, it usually is, it’s just that no one wants to talk about it.

Random 1,000 DOGE GIVEAWAY + Your Mission, Should You Choose To Accept It

THE GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED:

TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED, THANK YOU.
Congratulations PlochFX, who won, with a guess of 1,897,635. The generated number was 1,745,701, which means PlochFX was off by 151,934. The next closest guess was darkblade48, who was off by 463,683.
This is a permalink to the comment verifying the tip.
Proof of the generated number.
Thank you all for entering - this got way more attention than I thought it would. I love you all, and thank you for the compliments on my video :).
 
How it will work: I will use Random.org to generate a truly random number between 8 and 88888888. Whoever guesses closest to the generated number will receive 1,000 DOGE through sodogetip at 8:08 PM PST, Saturday, January 27th, which is also when the giveaway will end. Each user is allowed one entry. Directions: Choose a number between 8 and 88888888, and write it in the comments below. While you’re at it, tell me what you think of my Year of the Doge video!
Good luck!
 

Stuff you might want to read:

Intro: I’m an old shibe who’s been around since the early days (on other accounts) and have the memorabilia to prove it (thanks to Shibe Mint). The Year of the Doge contest reminds me of the Hype Video competition, but with more participants, and the submitted videos have far surpassed my expectations. Everyone did an amazing job, and I’m so proud of all of you!
 
The Mission: This is a prime opportunity to bring more attention to Dogecoin, and everyone has to play their part. Every video submitted has a unique selling point - the graphics, voiceover, emotions, silliness, display of charity, informational value, or good-ol-fashioned doge spirit, and it’s up to all of us to market the SH**A out of that. Email your local newspapers, write about why doge is the best coin, and tweet your video to every celebrity (don’t forget Tommy Wiseau is a Bitcoiner!). Explain doge’s best selling points, from your point of view, and why everyone should hodl some. After you’ve done that, share it on social media, tell your friends, or give out paper wallets, but please don’t make promises about doge reaching a certain value in USD or making anyone rich; that’s not what doge is about!
 
Unnecessary Commentary: I’m afraid this sub is losing touch with what makes dogecoin so great - being the antidote to the rest of crypto. Instead of a caustic slew of price discussions and FUD about the market crashing, we’re the meme loving shibes who sponsor racecars and Jamaican bobsled teams. As our subshibers grow and doge moons, we should focus on sponsoring more projects and bringing more happiness to the world. Yes, doge has fast and cheap transactions, but other cryptos do too, and some have more “professional” viability due to their marketing (Dash, Raiblocks, etc.). The real value of doge lies in our community - and more importantly, our community projects, which we need more of…
…which brings me to this video (yes, ik, a very bad self-plug, pls forgive) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuTzXSH9aRg. This piece of work was shot on a fake GoPro that cost me $20, and edited with openshot on debian, so I didn’t think I’d end up with much. Fortunately, what I managed to squeeze out was better than expected, and I hope that after watching it, you’re inspired to go help the homeless yourself. The best tip I have is to see them as real people, with lives just as complex and interesting as yours. If you respect them, they’ll respect you, and most are happy to have someone to talk to. If you love your room as much as Brian Wilson, and don’t like to leave it, you could also help me pay back the socks, as $52 isn’t a drop in the bucket for a poor college shibe like me (address below). And, if you’d rather not send your magic internet money to some internet stranger, you could donate to some of the charities I’ve picked out below.
 

Thank you for reading, may the moon be with you, and good luck if you submitted a video.

 
Great Charities:
There are many others. Please let me know if I should add any.
 
My DOGE Addresses:
Help me to pay back the socks: DDvgW1NAJ5FGzE1ncd4MvCbwHaVdMEnhwZ address on chain.so
Stories of the Homeless Fund (example here): DPPNGWJaaiB6PcJiYyKi2KutGpRoLBnF3s address on chain.so
If you liked my Year of the Doge video: D9XUYjCiHBUV6khUSQG3C5BdNHZCC98XE5 address on chain.so
P.S. Thank you to ZCham and have-a-good-one for their tips on my old post.
 
Thank you all for being a great community. Love you guys ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ (>#_#)>.
