Ben graduated from the University of Oxford with a degree in law. Having an active interest in the blockchain Space since 2012, he became interested in its potential for solving co-ordination problems when considering some of the inadequacies of the law as a co-ordination tool. After time spent in the public sector, and then the traditional tech industry, he decided that exploring this potential was the most valuable use of his time.
