“All my life, I’ve gotten to where I’ve gotten to by doing things that other people wouldn’t do … putting myself into situations that could make or break me.”

Superstar Matt James is used to putting his head, heart and resources on the line, whether it’s on romantic reality show “The Bachelor” or investing in crypto. A self-described risk-taker, James wasn’t afraid to jump into the deep waters of crypto and start investing in bitcoin. Since his first investment, he’s become an all-out Bitcoiner, as he sports the emblematic laser eyes and the all-important #Bitcoin callout in his bio.

Matt James helps kick off the first installment of “New Money” with Spencer Dinwiddie and Solo Ceesay, CoinDesk’s new series exploring the intersection of blockchain and social media in the modern age. In this episode, James reveals his journey in crypto and speculates on where blockchain technology could go next.
