SAM RATNAKAR

I'm crypto native, 20-years-old and a hard-core decentralist. I fell through the crypto rabbit hole when I was 16, first as a hobbyist when I turned a 4-figure-fund into a 6-figures during high school and then in 2018 as an entrepreneur when I founded my first company, MintFlint, social trade sharing for crypto (investors included: HyperDex and JD Kanani, CEO of Matic Network). 

I later went onto join a team I met at EthWaterloo to work towards establishing a messaging protocol on Ethereum, Convey (backed by ConsenSys Grants). 

As Chief Operating Officer, I co-founded IdeaMarkets, a market protocol for decentralized curation.

Core Team member of DeFiPedia, an education resource for DeFi users.
