I invest in strong teams working on problems across hard technology, social media, gaming, and sportsbetting, though I'm open to all verticals.
I look for teams that are obsessively motivated about what they're working on and mission driven.
Over the years, I've found that the most
important predictor in the success of the company is the right founders working on the right things at the right time.
As an investor,
I try to help my teams in whatever ways I can, whether it is through brainstorming product features, user acquisition channels, or introductions
to various companies or domain experts.
Current Interests and Projects
I've been enamored by the breakthroughs in decentralized computing platforms and the various use cases they enable in currencies, contracts, and social networks, amongst others. I've invested in several promising cryptocurrencies and platforms including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, IOTA, and Monero. I'm also currently working on several projects in the space (to be announced soon)!
These are a few of my public investments. Stay tuned for more.
