#120 Brock Pierce -The Mastermind of Digital Assets

“Not the score, not even the results but how you play” – Brock Pierce.

On a chilled sunny Thursday evening after a long mountain hike. I managed to get hold of the Unicorn; Brock Pierce to talk about…everything. I have lots of respect for the Billionaire, Child actor, Entrepreneur, technologist etc. Especially in the digital asset space, I’ve always admired people who accomplished a lot in a relatively small amount of time but in multiple industries. Brock is one of those guys.

Brock Pierce is an entrepreneur and venture capitalist with an extensive track record of founding, advising and investing in disruptive businesses. He’s been credited with pioneering the market for digital currency and has raised more than $5B for companies he has founded.

In 2013, Pierce joined brothers Bart and Bradford Stephens in founding venture capital firm Blockchain Capital (BCC) which was reported to have raised $85 million in two venture funds by October 2017. Described as its managing partner, Pierce announced a $50 million Initial Coin Offering (ICO) by BCC in February 2017. On its launch in June 2017, the currency was named EOS and marketed through a new vehicle called Block.one of which Pierce was variously described as co-founder, head, minority partner and advisor.

In this interview, Grey Jabesi and Brock Pierce discussed:
– His early beginnings as an actor
– Mt Gox AKA Gox Rising
– Tether
– EOS
– Money and Wealth
