Andreas M. Antonopoulos | Clark Kent (Superman)
Represents the best attributes of humanity and the ultimate force of good.
Andreas is an advocate for spreading awareness and providing educational content about Bitcoin (and decentralized cryptocurrencies in general).
He has written and published more than 200 articles on everything ranging from cryptography, security, distributed networks, cloud computing and Bitcoin, all the way to the ethics and politics of distributed systems. His recorded lectures and interviews on Youtube, provide technical and theoretical education on the subject of Bitcoin.
Andreas is a critically-acclaimed author, speaker, educator, and Bitcoin and blockchain, expert. His goal is to make complex subjects accessible and easily understood. His talks combine economics, psychology, technology, and game theory with current events, personal anecdotes, and historical precedent—transliterating the complex issues of blockchain technology out of the abstract and into the real world.
Antonopoulos authored the books: “Mastering Bitcoin”—a technical guide about the technology, and “The Internet of Money”, which unveiled the “why” of Bitcoin. These books were well regarded. Other titles include The Internet of Money Volume Two (2017) and Mastering Ethereum (2018).
In 2014, Antonopoulos was appointed a teaching fellow with the University of Nicosia, the first university in the world to offer a Masters Degree in Digital Currency. He helped to develop the curriculum and continues to co-teach the Introduction to Digital Currencies course that is offered as a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).
He serves on the Oversight Committee for the Bitcoin Reference Rate at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and has appeared as an expert witness in various capacities, testifying in hearings of the Australian Senate Banking Committee and the Canadian Senate Commerce, Banking, and Finance Committee—his testimony for the latter influenced public policy regarding Bitcoin in Canada and globally.
