Nate spent the majority of his early career as a high frequency derivatives trader at one of the largest proprietary trading firms in the world.

To date, he has invested in over 20+ early stage Blockchain related companies and has been methodically following his forward-thinking long-term thesis. With an extensive background in computer science and a decade of experience on Wall Street, he is an excellent candidate for advisor roles in the Fintech and Blockchain space.
