My name is Bobby Singh and I love everything blockchain. I love cryptocurrencies, I love programmable ledgers and I definitely love the decentralization philosophy overall. Let me tell you a bit about myself.
Rather than resorting to the generic magical storyline involving $1000 magically converted to $1 million through some magical trading techniques, I will tell you the truth. I didn’t stumble into blockchain technology, but rather blockchain technology found me. I was initially introduced to blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies through our managing director at Barclays Investment bank. Bitcoin initially seemed like a seasonal fluke that comes and goes but on closer inspection, I saw that cryptocurrencies and blockchain itself are straight from the future. They can help global commerce in an entirely revolutionary step. The centralized third party approaches will be replaced by peer-to-peer public networks of these cryptocurrencies and thus help remove borders and other barriers in a borderless economy of tomorrow.
Moreover, blockchain technology will be in a symbiotic relationship with other modern advancements including those done in the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI), genomics, Virtual Reality, Robotics, and even space exploration. Blockchain-based systems are essentially the underlying foundation or operating system that is needed to advance in all these futuristic endeavors of mankind. I always knew that I was meant to pursue a line of work that excited me and was positively impactful. So, I left my generic corporate banking job that guaranteed everything in life from a very comfortable lifestyle to money in the bank in pursuit of this new innovation with all my heart.
As Albert Einstein once said:
“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking”
Enter the blockchain paradigm.
The world is indeed being transformed right in front of our eyes and this time, it is not relativity or some hi-fi scientific equation and experiments in CERN, Geneva but through Fin-Tech and disruptive economics. Since I connected with the technology on a personal level, I immediately started pursuing it. The ability to do secure transactions without a centralized intermediary or guarantee is a revolutionary concept on its own and I liked it to my core. I have met top crypto innovators from around the world including Joe Lubin, the ex-co-founder of Ethereum and co-founder of Consensys, Brock Pierce, a former partner at EOS and Block One, Sunny Lu, founder of VeChain, Justin Sun, founder of Tron and all the top minds in the business. I picked their brains and what I learned made me commit myself to the industry ever so strongly.
What’s important is not just the technology itself but what this innovation stands for: a global paradigm shift from data silos and monopolies to interoperability and interconnection. This new paradigm will not just change how we exchange money or conduct commerce, but it will also impact how we exchange value in realms of finance, commerce, government, and real-world assets.
I invite you to support my journey and let’s positively impact and innovate our world at large.
