His mission is to educate as many people as possible, in as many places as possible, in as many languages as possible, about the historical, technological, and socio-economic impacts of Bitcoin and open blockchain technologies.

This mission has seen him speak in front of audiences such as the Banking, Trade, and Commerce committee of the Senate of Canada where he addressed the senators’ questions on how to regulate Bitcoin in Canada, numerous news channels like BBC, Bloomberg, CNN, and the Financial Times. Further, he has served as a teaching fellow for the free Introduction to Digital Currencies course offered to the public at the University of Nicosia.
