    My Cryptocurrency began 2 years ago when I bought my first shares of ETH at nearly $9. After learning about blockchain and specifically Ethereum, I became obsessed with the technology and cryptocurrencies it enabled. Once I began my research, I soon found that navigating the complex crypto-market was challenging and online guides were fragmented and hard to understand. That's when the idea of Bluegrass Crypto was born. Our vision is to effectively teach anyone about cryptocurrencies and blockchain. We simplify each aspect of this emerging market by providing various tools to assist you on your financial journey. Teaching and advocating about this cutting edge technology has become my passion and I'm elated to be able to share it with you!

    I bought my first stock the day I turned 20 after saving roughly $3,500 from my (at the time) $9/hr. Job. Investing is my passion in life and I have developed a wide understanding of economics and finance. I first discovered Bitcoin through my philosophical beliefs in March of 2016, with the conjunction of that and my desire to become an Investor, I dove head first into learning about this cutting edge technology. Eventually I put more and more into cryptocurrencies as I began to understand just how much potential they really had. I am very excited to be a part of Bluegrass Crypto and look forward to introducing the Kentuckiana market to the world of cryptocurrency.

    My first time hearing about cryptocurrency, particularly bitcoin, was about a year and a half ago from my best friend. A year later after doing some research I made my first investment in Ethereum & Golem which turned out to be very successful. The success of this initial investment sparked my interest to learn about cryptocurrencies as well as the free market economics that drives them. I see potential for cryptocurrencies to change the world and I'm happy to be strapped in for the ride. I think everyone deserves to know about this technology and I'm excited to be a part of Bluegrass Crypto to help do so.
