Hi! I’m “Crypto Ben,” a cryptocurrency enthusiast and evangelist, artist, musician, singer, songwriter, traveler, web developer, freelancer, freethinker. I mined as well as purchased my first bitcoin in 2013. It was during this time I had my “oh, shit” moment when it all made sense… immutable, fungible, unconfiscatable, be-your-own-bank, the internet of money that is Bitcoin. Since then, I’ve been a cryptocurrency investor/trader, node operator, blockchain researcher, student, and lately a Bitcoin evangelist.
CryptoBen.com was founded in late 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. As a traveling entrepreneur, artist and musician, work has been slow due to travel restrictions and bars and clubs’ closures. I have found myself not traveling much and having more free time to “crypto,” LOL. Fun fact: at the time of this page’s publishing, the price of Bitcoin is $15,315. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see Bitcoin’s current price.
This site is dedicated to my friends, family, and casual acquaintances. Those I evangelized to and those who have asked me about Bitcoin, cryptocurrency, blockchain, and other techy stuff. And to those who have stumbled on this site, I welcome you to CryptoBen.com and invite you to browse around, learn, earn, and join the crypto family and BE YOUR OWN BANK!
