Jason has been very active in the Bitcoin space since 2017, but he actually discovered Bitcoin as early as 2013. Having failed to understand even the very basics of it back then, and, swayed by the contemporary thinking of the time, he decided not to invest or explore further. This, of course, was a terrible financial decision that ultimately cost him years.
Bitcoin does indeed seem very complex at first, both in terms of concept and the underlying technology that supports it, but Jason's eureka moment was when he realised that understanding all these details is not relevant to day to day users. What's actually important is understanding why the experimental global monetary system we use (it was only established only in 1971) is in such serious trouble and why we can now be reasonably certain Bitcoin will be a cornerstone of what inevitably comes next.
Jason now dedicates his time to breaking down the apparent complexities of Bitcoin and presenting them in ways he would have liked them presented back in 2013 so that other people don't make the same mistakes he did! His book "How to Explain Bitcoin to Your Mum" published in 2018 (2nd edition due 2024) was the starting point, but since then he has helped well over 11,000 people get started with Bitcoin in the UK through his Bitcoin Pioneers project, BitcoinHODLers community (that you can join for free) and numerous free webinars and training events.
Jason often contributes to main stream media such as CNBC, Bloomberg, The Financial Times and the BBC and still writes a "Week in Summary" column in CityAM every Friday morning. Previously he was Chief Operating Officer of Quantum Expeditions, a Texas based mining start up, and Chief Bitcoin Analyst at Quantum Economics.
Currently, Jason is Chief Operating Officer at Renewablox, a solar power mining project in the USA, a large scale Bitcoin miner in Siberia, Co-Owner of The Bitcoin Racing Team and, for 2023, racing driver of car 42 for the same team in Nankang City Car Cup Challenge.
While he writes primarily about Bitcoin, he experiences the same ups and downs of life that we all do and these often find their way into his work as well.
