We met living in a hacker house in Potrero Hill (San Francisco) - We slept above each other on bunk beds for about 2 years, had very similar goals and aspirations. Yanni resigned from his job and we started working together on our startup. We then started our own hacker house and that has helped pay for our operation costs for this startup. Both have done some crazy things and haven't looked back since!
Why we're doing this
We launched SNAPCARD to see if there is a market of people that want to spend their Bitcoin for everyday purchases.
We're dedicated to setting up the global infrastructure for Digital Currencies.
