Financial and Cryptocurrency Disclosure (Last updated May 4, 2018)

In the vernacular, I am not a “nocoiner.” I occasionally buy cryptocurrencies for experimental purposes. However, as a rule, all my cryptocurrency holdings are small and not intended for investment. I am currently developing industry-wide guidelines for cryptocurrency researchers, and this public disclosure is one of my recommendations. Overall, I attempt to balance bias, industry access, and best methodological practices for research.

Currently, I own a small number of Bitcoin and Maidsafe tokens. I have accounts on several major exchanges, but with empty wallets. I am the Chief Governance Officer for Qubit Protocol, Partner and consultant at Rothbadi & Co., and have been compensated for my work with these organizations.
