Chris fell down the crypto rabbit hole midway through 2017, and he’s been hooked since then. He’s become an advocate for the open finance revolution, and he believes that the world would be a better place if banks were replaced by code. When he’s not following blockchains, he dedicates his time to music–mostly finding and listening to old records, and attending live gigs and club sets around London.
