In this episode, Jeremy shares insights into:

◈ Success in Blockchain technology.

◈ Experience in using psychedelics.

◈ Turning points and changes for the betterment.

[00:02:39] Talk to us about how you got in this stuff. How you started in the crypto world. 

[00:02:49] You know, 2010, 2011 is kind of like the first, “Hit Me!”. Like you gotta get me on this!

[00:03:12] We were all kicking and screaming on this thing.

[00:04:44] Crypto vs Politics.

[00:05:45] And then at my first BitCoin club I discovered Bitcoin clubs at MIT and at Stanford. And that same night I got a call to make an organization out of this.

[00:05:57] It happened very quickly. In three months I had incorporated a non-profit in every continent. 

[00:06:12] Hungry for Crypto. 

[00:06:16] There weren’t a lot of resources, now it’s the largest and oldest non-profit in the Ethereum Blockchain.

[00:06:56] The one thing that stood out to me is how quickly you collaborated with other people.

[00:07:04] Activism. 

[00:09:59] My generation’s thing!

[00:10:31] Seize the moment.

[00:17:43] I started to have some serious psychological issues. I was on psychiatric drugs, nothing worked. One day I ate mushroom and my life changed.

[00:19:06] Long before this renaissance in psychedelics. I was aware of the medical potential of these substances.

[00:39:44] If there’s something you’re passionate about, go all in on it.
