Brock Pierce, 2020 Presidential Candidate and OG of everything crypto: co-founder of Tether and the man behind EOS Token, Blockchain Capital, the first crypto fund Block.One, the first ICO Mastercoin and is the Chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation. Brock has always been ahead of the curve. A former child actor, originally from Minnesota, Pierce now officially resides in Puerto Rico. According to a Forbes profile in 2018, Brock Pierce discovered crypto via entertainment as he cofounded a precursor to YouTube, at 17, called Digital Entertainment Network (DEN), which raised $88 million during the dot-com bubble. In the 2000s Pierce, an avid gamer, built one of the largest virtual-asset trading companies, Internet Gaming Entertainment (IGE), which employed thousands of people in China to play videogames, like World of Warcraft, in order to win coveted virtual prizes--which he then sold to millions of videogamers globally for real money. Video game currency arbitrage led him to crypto in its earliest days.
