About the Episode

If you are new to Bitcoin, you may not have heard of him. Jason's not on Twitter often. Definitely not on Reddit.

If you're on his route from Miami to Los Angeles, you may physically see him. He's not hard to miss. The large, bearded hippie is running across the United States to raise awareness for Blockchain technology and the homeless epidemic.

A skilled entrepreneur, connector, philanthropist, and (of course) long distance runner, Jason is an undeniable talent adding value to the Bitcoin ecosystem since 2010.

We also talk about his contributions in the media: Bitcoin rap and collaborating with Kevin Connolly (former star of Entourage) on a pilot for an HBO series about cryptocurrency.

Note: if you came here for the Reddit R/Bitcoin story. It starts around 15 minutes in.

Mentioned in the episode:
Blockchain Across America
Sean's Outpost
Satoshi Forest
Kingsland School of Blockchain
The Man Who Ran Across America to Raise Bitcoins for the Homeless
