At Blocks Decoded, our mission is simple: to help you navigate the complex and risky world of cryptocurrency and blockchain with a critical eye.
We’re living in the aftermath of the great crypto crash of 2018 and the landscape is trickier than ever. Mainstream hype has died off, but there are still over 1,500 active cryptocurrencies with circulating coins, and the underlying blockchain technology still has a promising future in other applications as developers continue working on it.
It’s all a bit confusing, to say the least. We’re here to help make sense of it.
Meet the Team
Gavin Phillips (contact me)
Gavin saw the potential in Bitcoin back in 2010, but was a dirt poor student living on eggs and without a penny to invest. Since then, he’s been tracking the development of cryptocurrency and blockchain, and he’s written about blockchain for several publications and ICO whitepapers, including Envilope.
He has a particular interest in how blockchain applications can help manage waste and e-waste, and promote security and privacy for everyday users.
Joe Coburn (contact me)
With a background in software development, Joe quickly realized the potential in blockchain technology when it first hit the scene. He started a personal blog (RIP) about cryptocurrency developments way back in 2010, and since then he’s been fascinated by the concept of decentralized currency.
Now, equipped with a Computer Science degree and improved writing chops, Joe continues with his finger on the pulse of cryptocurrency markets, especially those accessible through an automated software interface.
Dan Price (contact me)
In his previous life, Dan spent five years providing investment advice to clients. You might assume, therefore, he was savvy enough to spot the opportunities presented by cryptocurrency in its early days. Sadly, he wasn’t.
But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a passion for all things blockchain today. He strongly believes in long-term future of the technology and wants to help everyone else understand its benefits. Just don’t listen to his market tips.
