Hi MahaDao family,
In crypto my name is crypto J, in real life it’s Johan. Worked in the wonderfull world of blockchain before I found crypto and was immediately hooked! Crypto for me is a world with (the potential of) unlimited innovation and not having to wait before the board gives you a ‘go’. Not driven by making money, but driven by the tech and the opportunity to be part of a revolutionary technology to change the world.
I love to read and learn from different subjects: psychology, philosophy, economics, singularity, marketing, business, history, spirituality, science fiction, anthropology and my house is filled with books. Next to that I love to be in the nature (love the sea and forest to calm my busy mind), have drinks with friends and discuss deeply about what keeps us busy/going, work actively on ‘know thyself’, sport to keep my juices flowing, exploring music and pre COVID exploring the world (and really looking forward to that again).
I discovered crypto in April 2021 and soon I was a member, currently moderator, of the Cryptomedic family. From that moment it was impossible to not know about Mahadao (love you Medic!). Going to college I dreamed about ‘a different economic system’ since that was the moment I found out about “the money printerrrrr” and money now being backed with gold anymore. Let’s call it interesting, how our economic and financial system is really working. Being part of a DAO that’s working on a solution to fix this would therefore be an honor!
Short history about me, so you know what I can bring to the table:
Have 2 formal University degrees (health care business and politics) and one informal in economics, because I studied that abroad (Milan). Also teached health care economics during my first study.
Started working at a health insurance company to create propositions for specific audiences, but quickly got asked to work on more innovative propositions. From that moment I always worked in IT/Tech in roles like innovation manager, product owner and product manager.
Had my own company in Quantified Self and at that time I also discovered blockchain. Sold my company in QS and got a job at a company that processes all the healthcare insurance claims in the Netherlands. An ideal match I would think, but I was a bit early to the party. Created my own IT blockchain developer team (pivoting with ethereum, corda and hyperledger) and a blockchain knowledge centre. But like stated above, it went too slow for my taste and when I found crypto I knew enough.
Strong suits are: vision (and the roadmap to get there), business/marketing, creativity, problem solved oriented, networking and my enthusiasm when I genuinely believe in something.
