My political beliefs were formed through my support of Ron Paul's 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns. Through Ron's influence I came to hold liberty and the non-aggression principle as part of my core beliefs. I helped manage several money bombs in the 2012 campaign, among them Black This Out ($2.7 Million) and Tea Party 11 ($4.5 Million). I also came to know more about the Federal Reserve and its monopoly control over the creation of our money, the US Dollar. The centralization of money printing power in the hands of central bankers is what led me to believe cryptocurrency was a possible solution. Decentralizing control over our money was the ultimate goal.
I first found out about Bitcoin through my time at ronpaulforums.com supporting Ron Paul. After the early Bitcoin bubble of 2013, I decided to learn more about cryptocurrency. My research ultimately led me to Peercoin, the first proof-of-stake crypto invented by Sunny King. I invested in Peercoin and support it to this day as a more decentralized and energy efficient replacement for Bitcoin.
Jordan Lee joined the Peercoin community in 2013 and formed a development team to create Peershares, a proof-of-stake based platform for creating distributed autonomous corporations (DACs) and organizations (DAOs). From Peershares, NuBits was born, the first price stable digital currency pegged to the US Dollar. Less than a year later, Block & Chains (B&C) Exchange was introduced and funding was raised to create an inter-blockchain decentralized exchange based on Peershares. I am invested in both organizations and look forward to creating even more Peershares based businesses in the future.
