Michael Early - Michael Earley Head of Research & Nonprofit Outreach - The Giving Block

Michael Earley

Head of Research

Originally from New Zealand, Michael’s first experience with bitcoin mining ended in 2011 when his laptop suffered a “boating accident” involving a fiat loving kitten armed with a glass of water. After moving to the United States he produced enterprise blockchain conferences, through which he met The Giving Block’s Co-Founders, Alex and Pat. He cut his teeth with nonprofits managing social media and fundraising for Border Angels in San Diego, and he serves on the board of Washington DC based 501(c)3 Kia Ora DC Kiwis. He loves nothing more than to help charities fundraise using magical internet money donated by whales, defi degens and .jpgs.
