Making

 

I

created, and am the executive producer of Daily Crypto Report—a news briefing for the blockchain and crypto space.

I think that making is essential because it lets us flex our problem solving muscles in ways that have cost and reward attached to them. I find that I’m more empathetic to someone else’s creation if I have my own recent experiences to relate to; whether it be the looming must-do list, finding suppliers, or coding (and then troubleshooting the seemingly unavoidable bugs).

I started this project in the fall of 2015. It was a way to keep my dad up to speed with what I was interested in. After a while I realised that while I was solving a problem for myself and my dad, I had an opportunity to open it up to others who would be interested in the same things. Crypto markets run 24/7, 365 and they’re worldwide—so keeping up with the news on what’s driving price and the future of the market is a lot to handle. To solve that issue, and continue to promote the industry I wanted to create a daily audio briefing that is sub 3 minutes, and you can listen to on the way to work.

I launched the podcast in September, after creating basically everything—with the help of my amazing creative partner and beautiful wife, Lindsay—from scratch.
