KURT’S BITCOIN JOURNEY
Kurt is an entrepreneur from Chicago, but living in Miami. He has hands-on experience in Bitcoin mining, business management, media and cybersecurity. As CoinGeek’s Chief Bitcoin Historian, Kurt is a wealth of knowledge on all things blockchain, and he has the unique ability to make complex ideas easy to understand.
He is the cofounder of GorillaPool.com, and a respected expert on design and deployment of hash power operations for bitcoin mining and related infrastructure. His Bitcoin journey started in 2012, and he has been an active, public advocate for Satoshi’s Vision of big block Bitcoin since the beginning of the Bitcoin Civil War. He is a frequent host, co-host and special guest across the blockchain media space.
He is focused on teaching Bitcoin history, function and future utility for users and businesses through the written word, video and in-person media experiences – righting the wrongs of the Bitcoin Civil War and properly communicating Bitcoin to the globe.

LIFE OUTSIDE BITCOIN
Kurt spends his free time with his growing family and training in MMA with his beloved wife. They are both Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitors. Kurt spent about five years as the head fundamentals instructor for the Alliance Jiu-Jitsu Training Center in Chicago, and now teaches advanced Jiu-Jitsu in South Florida. He is a successful competitor, but has spent the last few years focused on coaching athletes and volunteering with students in his free time.
Kurt has a knack for keeping things practical while never being afraid to poke fun at people’s sacred calfs – or is it “calves?” Either way, he is a fearless advocate for the unbounded Bitcoin protocol and on-chain scaling with proof of work.
EVENTS, CONFERENCES AND INTERVIEWS
Kurt is happy to take a serious topic or lead with the laughs. He is comfortable in person, remote or live via studio.
Some Other Stuff Too!
Kurt believes strongly in epistemological self-consciousness and the strong rhetoric backed up by hard work, self-reliance and the humility to know when to ask for help. He is just as thrilled to act as a business, bitcoin or software consultant as he is to be a life mentor or martial arts instructor.
