Hi, my name is Daniel Ameli. I’ve always been interested in technology, finance, and world-changing ideas. In 2010, I discovered Bitcoin, tech which threatened to disrupt finance and change the world. Its success has spawned an entire ecosystem and many incredible projects. I am an advisor to Intercoin since I am interested in the potential of Universal Basic Income. I have also been advocating for more traction of cryptocurrencies and circular economies. Sometime to change the world, the best way is to start in your own community. For several years after I discovered Bitcoin, I didn’t meet another person who used Bitcoin. When I finally did, it changed my perception of it from a tech project on the Internet to a community of real, motivated, brilliant people.
I have a BA in Economics from NYU, and an MBA from Hult International Business School. Worked in futures, options, and derivatives in traditional financial markets. Background in math, science, computers. Wrote programs and scripts in R and Python. Built advanced Excel spreadsheets. Mined, invested, traded, consulted, gave speeches and wrote articles about bitcoin, blockchain, and cryptocurrencies. Developed automated trading systems, valuation models, and arbitrage strategies. Attended conferences and meetups related to cryptocurrencies and fintech in the US, Europe, and Africa. Knowledgeable about information security, market structure, databases, exchanges, regulations, consensus protocols, game theory, memory pool/fee structure, cryptography, hashing functions, and important events, people, and companies in the space.
